Acne and Rosacea Masterclass

About this Event

Acne Masterclass | Morning Session

All acne has a hormonal component, for hormonal mediated acne or what many researchers refer to as DHT- mediated acne, a specific anti-androgen that can inhibit 5a reductase without blocking the androgen receptor is the ideal approach to treating hormonal mediated acne. By linking the endocrine system to hormonal mediated acne it becomes easier to understand how those few 5a reductase inhibitors available works.

We have learned in recent years that our conventional acneic treatments are not always suitable for all skin types. Many are lipid dry with sensitivity and poor corneocyte compaction that contribute to cellular inflammation and an overactive innate immune system. The skincare market of the new millennium is one of ever-increasing complexity and sophistication, with consumers of these products also becoming more sophisticated. This stimulating class will cover the underlying causes of acne, explore the challenges and traits of an acneic skin in its varying grades, and explain the dermaviduals solutions in the treatment of acneic skin for home care and clinical treatments. All will be linked to a corneotherapy knowledge base.

Rosacea Masterclass | Afternoon Session

The Rosacea client has not only got a cosmetic and medical history, but also an emotional history that compounds this difficult skin condition. This is a class where you will learn more about the rosacea skin and why it is so difficult to maintain cellular homeostasis.

The epidermis mediates a broad set of protective ‘barrier’ functions that includes defense against pathogen challenges. When barrier defense systems are not optimal due to cellular inflammation or external sources many chemicals will inflame and compound what may have been a simple case of EFAD. For the purposes of Preventative Corneotherapy, it is essential to avoid skin care products with harmful substances such as irritants and allergens, to select the appropriate skin care substances, and to individually adapt the skincare products to specific skin problems. You will learn that substances such as humectants and emulsifiers will also aggravate the Rosacea skin sometimes more than fragrance or preservative ever will.

In this class, we will learn how to manage the rosacea skin with dermaviduals® for home care and clinical treatments, and highlight the common mistakes made in the management of this multifaceted skin condition.
