   treatment therapy. This course will not only expand your knowledge of the skin but give you a new respect for the largest organ of the body.

   You will learn how to  analyze and determine the both intrinsic and extrinsic causes of skin conditions affecting the diagnostic

   characteristics of texture, color and secretions.  Relating leading causes to the skin cells and systems affected and how this changes skin

   structure and function. Learn to summarize the analysis and write a treatment program following the principals of corneotherapy.

   Module 1 – Core Principal – 16 Modules , Module 2 – Skin Texture – 12 Modules, Module 3 – Skin Color – 9 Modules,  Module 4 – Skin  

   Secretion – 9 Modules , Module 5 – Summary – 3 Modules. The course comprises of 5 modules and over 50 UNITS LEARNING equalling

   a  total average of 50 CEs. The CE’s gained upon completion will transfer to Intellective AEsthetics program and towards the Intellective

   AEsthetics’ AEsthani method – Scientific Esthetics Certificate.


   CONSULTATIVE SKILLS, ASSESSMENT & PRACTICUM:  This highly interactive class  bridges the training from the Pastiche Skin

   Analysis  Program  and positions the esthetician in a real time environment for advanced skin analysis and consultative skills utilizing

   diagnostic equipment and  various tools  including digital imaging and microscopes. Theory and hands- on guidance is presented allowing

   the integration of consultative skills, though provoking “critical thinking”, and how to orchestrate client skin care programs based on

   conclusive assessment findings. Students are required  to complete the  interactive exercises, workbook and test for the certificate in 

   Consultative Skills, Assessment & Practicum.  Those who desire to receive  the AEsthani Method -  Scientific Esthetics Certificate are

   required to complete in entirety the Pastiche Training -Advanced Skin Analysis: Overview of  Skin Diagnostic Tools and Technologies -

   Interactive Workshop Session of Advanced Skin Analysis Using Diagnostic Tools -Implementation of  Protocols and Exercises for  

   Documentation - Consultative Skills, Verbiage, Methodology  Approach - Assessment & Intake - Vital Information - How

   to Conduct and Utilize Case Studies- Designing Skin Assessment Programs - Treatment Approach & Rationale. 



 

     THE SCIENCE OF SKIN

​     Part A – CELLS AND SIGNALS – THE SKIN IN MOTION © 
       This exceptional and highly scientific module presents vital information for understanding the functioning of the skin, the 
relationships

       that cells have in messaging, cellular relationships, and how these activities impact and outwardly affect the  surface of the skin. Visual

       diagrams and illustrations make this dynamic presentation a must for the modern esthetician desiring to attain a “science edge” in their

       knowledge of the skin. This unit will also provide valuable insight into modern approaches in the assessment and management of the skin: 

       Old Thoughts and New – A Novel Approach in Assessing the Skin - Expanding Paradigms and Standardized Evaluations
       The Science of Cormeobiology - The Intricacies of Barrier Function - The Evolution and Function of the Cell - Ionic Channels, Cell Action

       & 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
