A Special Webinar For US Residents & Younger Dermatologists Through The Next Steps In Derm Platform

Please join Terrence Keaney, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at The George Washington University School of Medicine for an informative presentation on the relationship between the skin microbiome and healthy skin barrier function. Dr. Keaney will discuss the multiple factors contributing to variability in the skin microbiota, changes to the microbiome during various disease states including atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, and various nutrients that may help rebalance the microbiome during disease. Recent data will be offered on the effects of thermal spring water on the microbiome including prebiotic action and the role of prebiotics in management of skin diseases. You will learn about the unique mineral composition of LaRoche-Posay thermal water and how emollients prepared with LaRoche-Posay thermal water have a beneficial effect on the microbiome in atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and dry skin various skin conditions.

You will learn more about:

  • Healthy skin is dependent on an intact barrier and a healthy microbiome
  • Diseased, or dysbiotic skin is characterized by an increase in pathogenic bacteria and a decrease in bacterial diversity
  • Prebiotics are non-living agents that stimulate the growth of indigenous bacteria
  • Prebiotics in skin disease can include water, moisturizers and oligoelements
  • The beneficial effect to the microbiome during atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and dry skin through the use of emollients prepared with LaRoche-Posay thermal water containing a Thankunique mineral composition high in selenium, a potent anti-inflammatory agent
