New conference Panel
As we age, underlying health issues can impede on treatment directions through potential risks and limitations to a treatment plan.
It is therefore essential to carefully review a client’s skin, as well as their health profile to determine potential contra-indications, treatment settings, as well as the appropriate use of a sequence of techniques and technologies.
In this presentation, a panel of experts will be given a specific client/patient health and skin evaluation profile of a mature woman seeking to improve her skin concerns and achieve a more youthful appearance. Each panellist will be given the opportunity to discuss their treatment approach, as well as identify treatment outcome possibilities and limitations.
Brief Client/patient profile:
PRESENTED SKIN CONDITION: Mild rosacea in the mid-facial region with evidence of telangiectasia in the cheeks creating a flushed appearance. The skin is dehydrated and quite inflamed. The main area where lines appear in the forehead, around the eyes and upper lip.
The lower face is showing signs of loss of tone impacting the nasolabial fold and the jawline losing definition. The client’s skin colour is classified as a Fitzpatrick IV with evidence of some pigmentation in the cheeks.
HEALTH CONDITION: Menopause with hot flushes contributes to restless sleep.
Type II diabetes which she is keeping under control with diet. Allergic to seafood. Since COVID-19 she has been experiencing anxieties and her doctor has subscribed benzodiazepines for short term use only.
REQUIRED OUTCOME: The client/patient is seeking to improve overall skin texture, minimise the redness in her skin, remove pigmentation, refresh the skin minimising the appearance of lines and wrinkles including toning of her jawline. She is currently only using a light moisturiser, and a foaming cleanser and occasionally applies a night cream. She does not use sunscreen.

A panel of experts: The panel of experts consists of qualified and experienced professionals utilising various disciplines. They will be given the opportunity to present a treatment plan, any identified precautionary measures, contraindications, and to articulate potential treatment outcomes including limitations.
