This town hall-style webinar was held live on April 15, 2021. Panelists addressed the unique aspects of caring for skin of color (SOC) patients in a dermatologic surgery  practice, including how to assess anatomy, examine signs of aging across ethnicities, elicit concerns conscientiously, have an understanding of varying aesthetic goals, and safely and effectively treat said concerns in SOC patients. Pearls of treatment and pitfalls to avoid were discussed, as well as marketing to a diverse patient population.

  • Develop strategies to effectively market their practice to SOC patients
