& Potential- Skin Assessment and Evaluation – A Three Dimensional View.
Part B - PHARMACOLOGY & ESTHETICS
As the health landscape changes through various age groups – increasingly, age related disorders and modern diseases presents the
likelihood of clients taking multiple medications. The skin care specialist should become familiar with of some of the most frequently
prescribed medications by physicians, dermatologists and plastic surgeons that our clients consume. This module identifies the potential
complexities, interactions and the response mechanisms of the skin during the consumption or use of medications, and the potential skin
and systemic reaction rationale: Biological Sciences – The Study of Pharmacology - Statistical Assessment – Client Landscape -
Physiological Aspects of Medications and Skin Interactions - Evaluation and Assessment – Procedural Tenets - The Most Commonly
Prescribed Medications Pharmacologics and UV Radiation, Foods and Chemicals - Phamacological Preparations & Skin Care Products.
Part C - ELECTROTHERAPY PRIMER AND EQUIPMENT TECHNOLOGIES
Evolutionary research and esthetic integration in the clinical community has necessitated electrotherapy training for the modern
esthetician to become more advanced. And in particular, with the development of newer technologies, devices, protocols and products.
