Vitiligo and pigmentation disorders are among the most common skin disorders. In vitiligo, control of pigment and identification of comorbidities is important in this cutaneous disorder that can have a severe and negative impact on quality of life. Current therapies are still similar to those used over a decade ago, but are in the process of expansion. Hyperpigmentation is a vexing discoloration typified by excess pigment appearing in the skin. Therapies include sun protection, bleaching agents, cosmeceuticals, chemical peels and lasers.The OBJECTIVES of this continuing medical education activity have been developed so that, after attending this conference, attendees will be able to:

- To utilize combination treatment approaches to improve outcomes in disorders of hyperpigmentation
