14-15th August 2018 – Sydney

Speaker Jacine Greenwood

Treating acne conditions can be a real challenge, but when you achieve excellent results it is so rewarding, not to mention it boosts your confidence and reputation.

What if you could look at acne and know IMMEDIATELY what you should be doing with 100% certainty?  Here is your chance to learn from a leading expert.  Attend this two-day information-packed workshop and gain incredible knowledge from Jacine Greenwood on how to become an expert in treating acne conditions.

The Pathogenesis of Acne – Biofilms and the Acne Cytokine Connection is the holy grail of acne knowledge and understanding.  This two-day intensive workshop will blast through the roadblocks you have previously experienced when seeking credible results.  You will come away with so much more knowledge on every level, and you will leave truly believing that you are an ACNE EXPERT.

Just look at what you will learn in this intensive two-day workshop:

  • BIOFILMS and the acne cytokine connection
  • IDENTIFY THE COMEDOGENICITY of ingredients that you should avoid
  • COSMETIC ACTIVES – Understanding which actives target which pathways
  • ACNE IN DISGUISE – Understanding the different types of acne
  • OBSTACLES AND CHALLENGES – Learn how to overcome common problems such as dehydration when treating acne
  • THE DOMINO EFFECT – Master cytokines that influence multiple pathways and which ingredients influence this
  • THE COSMETIC NIGHTMARE – Understanding actives that help, hinder and achieve FASTER RESULTS
  • TREATMENT PROTOCOLS – Finally understand what actives you need to be using for success

Besides walking you through the Pillars of Cytokine Influence Jacine will also teach you:

  • How to STOP DEHYDRATION IN ITS TRACKS and how to use BPO successfully without the chronic dehydration.
  • You will learn how to establish AMAZING CREDIBILITY so your clients will always come to you.
  • You will learn how to turn around even your most difficult acne client into RAVING CLIENTS

This education, based on the above pillars of knowledge will help you gain a deeper understanding of the exact cellular responses that occur in the skin. Without this understanding, you are just guessing and each wrong guess will mean your clients will lose TRUST in you.

“To get the right results we must understand how cytokines affect the skin to alter cellular communication so that you can “successfully treat acne”,  Jacine said.
