Topic: Wound healing and Aesthetic treatments

Introducing: Speaker, Danielle Hughes

Length of lecture: 30 Minutes

The wound healing model underpins a vast majority of aesthetic treatments – from laser to radiofrequency, skin needling to plasma pen, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion.

The key to the results we seek is to match the treatments to the limits of our client’s ability to repair and heal. Renowned as a leading researcher and educator Danielle Hughes will share important information on how to appropriate the theory of wound healing as it relates to the various procedures performed with aesthetic treatments. 

In this lecture you will learn:

  • Aesthetic treatments that induce wound healing
  • Understanding client healing limitations through consultation
  • Tensile strength of scar collagen
  • Epithelisation
  • Practical take homes that will see you either rethinking or cementing your approach to safe and reliable post-treatment care

Danielle Hughes is renowned globally for her in-depth and evidence-based education in all things aesthetic and cosmetic.  In this lecture, she will discuss a key facet of wound healing, one we rely on before new collagen and extracellular matrix is synthesised. A facet that must be allowed to effectively take place before the wound can remodel.

Topic: Essentialism – understanding the new black of audience behaviour

Introducing: Speaker, Gillian Fish

Length of lecture: 30 minutes

Essentialism is the new frontier principle of audience behaviour borne out of the seismic shift in the way we live, work and play, brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. As audiences have needed to adapt dramatically to the unfolding pandemic, finding a new rhythm in all facets of life, albeit still with a dose of the uncertainty of what lies ahead.  Most have needed to pare back to what is absolutely essential in life – people, time spent and consumption, either out of necessity or a desire to take the opportunity to reset, in this once-in-one-hundred-year Great Reset moment.

Topic: transepidermal deliver of actives: serums vs creams

Introducing: Speaker, DR Donna Marcal

In this lecture you will learn:

  • How skincare ingredients penetrate the skin and to what level
  • New advances in skincare trans-epidermal delivery systems
  • Can lipid-based actives be successfully included with water-based actives in the one formula
  • What do the studies say about serums versus creams when it comes to the effective delivery of actives.
