The physiology of skin ageing & regeneration This is an advanced and extensive study of both the chronological and premature skin ageing processes. We examine the anatomy and physiology of ageing, the extrinsic and intrinsic influential factors on this process and how the body’s natural inflammatory, immunological and healing mechanisms serve to regenerate and remodel skin tissue. Recognition of the visual changes in the skin tissue is covered in full and we examine the clinical treatment approaches used in the modern day aesthetic clinic.
Photo-ageing & pigmentation irregularities of the skin Sunlight is universally recognised as the primary cause of skin ageing and pigmentation irregularity. In this one day course we examine the science behind sunlight, how it penetrates and damages skin tissue and how it manifests pigmentation in the epidermal, and dermal, layers. We also study in depth all other forms of hyper and hypo pigmentation, their physiology and treatment.VIEW
The causes, development & treatment of Acne Vulgaris Acne Vulgaris is one of the commonest and most distressing skin condition but one of the least well understood. It is vital for all aesthetic skin practitioners to gain a full grasp of this complex skin disease and how to treat it. In this one day course we study the physiology and etiology of the various different types of acne . We look at the implications of age, hormonal fluctuations, diet, environment , skin care and stress in manifesting the condition with a comprehensive review of the treatment approaches applicable in the modern aesthetic clinic.
Understanding & treating hypersensitive skin & Acne Rosacea The conditions of skin hypersensitivity, in particular, Acne Rosacea are complex, generally poorly understood and extremely difficult to treat. Knowing how to assess the underlying causes and understanding the hormonal and neurological influences on the inflammatory cascade in the skin are core elements to this course. We consider in full the treatment approaches for these conditions with a view to their safe and effective management
Hormonal influences on the skin Hormonal irregularities cause some of the most common and challenging issues of skin imbalance and dysfunction. Treatment modalities for addressing hormonally mediated skin conditions need to be carefully considered, particularly when managing a client's expectations of the prognosis. This course examines the most common ways in which the complex endocrine system impacts on skin health and physiology and so help you in your assessment, clinical treatment and ongoing care of these skin issues.
Nutrition for skin health Determining the requirements of a good diet and it’s reflection on skin health is key to the ‘holistic treatment of the skin. Indeed the saying “We are what we eat” is no more true than in the case of our skin. Therefore this course explore nutritional influences on skin health – the good, the bad and the ugly. We examine how deficiencies and excesses of the primary nutrient groups impact on the development of specific skin conditions and the implications of modern day dietary preferences. Additionally we investigate the use of nutritional supplementation within a skin health programme to gain maximum benefits and results from your clinical treatment programme
