About the Course
Advanced Photo Damaged and Aging Skin Course from CAADEST
The harsh reality is that our prime physical condition lasts only about ten good years, usually from 17 until 27; by the age 30 people begin to notice disturbing changes. Photo damaged or sun damaged skin is something few escape. It occurs with exposure to sunlight (UVA or UVB) whether or not we intentionally suntan. Twenty-five percent of our lifetime exposure occurs before the end of our teenage years.
Photo damage to skin manifests in a variety of ways including:
advanced aging or wrinkling;
uneven or "pebbly" skin;
small blood vessels or red markings (telangiectasia);
rough or scaly patches (actinic keratosis);
"liver spots" and "age spots" (lentiginous);
thinned or fragile skin;
pre skin cancers;
skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma).
Aging is a topic that can be extremely expansive and complex.
Adding treatments that battle the sings of aging to the practice is a must for any esthetician who wants to stay competitive in this market. PREVENTING PHOTO DAMAGED AND AGING SKIN Course at CaAdEst will help a Master Esthetician with deep understanding of the issues surrounding aging skin. It includes the theories and physiology of aging and practical experience in customization of the available treatments for the signs of aging and photo damage in various skin types and conditions.
