Integumentary system/Advanced skin analysis

This is a ‘must have knowledge” for all estheticians, skin care cosmetologists and cosmetic nurses. This class covers understanding the intricacies of the Integumentary system ie: the skin cell, skin tissues and their functions. We focus on skin types utilizing the Fitzpatrick and Rubin’s scale as well as basic and advanced analysis using both objective and subjective analysis. You will also gain a profound understanding of many of the common skin conditions and skin disorders and how to take action to help treat them and when to refer to a doctor. We will also cover some of the most common skin care ingredients today and how these ingredients effect and benefit the skin.

Chemical peels:

This course covers 4 different peels: Glycolic acid, Latic acid, Salicylic acid and Jessner’s. We will also discuss other AHAs as well. We will focus on how these different peels affect the skin physiologically and who is a candidate for each. Skincare enzymes will be covered and the discussion on the differences between peels and enzymes. We will focus on the chemistry of the peels and the correct and safe application of each, as well as contra-indications and precautions.

Understanding and Treating Acne:

In this advanced course, we review the basic skin anatomy with a special focus on the hair follicle and the specific disorders that can arise from the hair follicle. You will gain a deep understanding of both the causes and trigger of Acne Vulgaris and the best treatment protocols. We will cover the 4 grades of acne, how they are treated in a skin care clinic and by a physician. You will learn about skin care products and ingredients as well as skin care modalities ie: Tesla, Blue LED and how they work in the treatment and control of acne. We will discuss how certain hormones and types of anaerobic bacteria play a great role in the creation of acne, and the medications that doctors use to treat it as well as vitamins and other supplements that can be helpful in the control of acne. Your instructor will provide you with an effective skin extraction treatment demo and access to the demo video. Acne Rosacea will also be discussed in this class.

Understanding and Treatment of Hyper-pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a multifaced condition, and all types cannot be placed in just one bucket. We will go over the Integumentary system with a special focus on the melanocyte and the melanogenesis process. We will cover the causes of Melasma, Solar Lentigo, Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and Freckles. You will learn the different causes, treatments and skin care products used to help treat this condition. We will be using LED, ultrasonic, peels and melanogenesis inhibiting ingredients in our treatment protocol of hyperpigmentation.

Micro-current/Anti-aging class

In this advanced anti-aging class .We will focus on biological and environmental aging causes. We will talk about the aging process of both skin and muscle and how to “slow down the hands of time” using microcurrent and other anti-aging modalities. Diet and anti-aging skin care products and ingredients such as: peptides, antioxidants, and DNA repair products will also be discussed so that you will know when to implement these products into your regime.

We will study the facial muscles and their actions and you will gain a deep understanding of the action and benefit of microcurrent for the skin and muscles, and learn how to use the machine professionally and safely for all your clients who are candidates.

Manual Facial Lymphatic Drainage

Manual facial lymphatic drainage can be used for detoxification, reduction of swelling and healing after facial surgery or for individuals who retain a lot of edema in the skin, and for overall health and wellbeing.

In this class, we will cover the intricacies of the lymphatic and circulatory systems. You will learn who is a candidate and who is not. You will understand how to perform a safe, effective manual facial lymphatic drainage massage and when to add it to your procedure. This is a technical massage that needs expert training and practice

LED/Light Therapy

There is a lot more to light therapy than just applying it to your client’s skin.
In this class, you will learn about the different colors of light and their nanometers. How the different nanometers effect and benefit the skin and how they can be used in different skin treatments ie: Acne, treatment of hyperpigmentation, anti-aging to boost your regimes.
We will also briefly discuss lasers and IPL in this class

Diamond Microdermabrasion/Ultrasonic

This modality is still one of the most practiced modalities in a skin care clinic. We will focus on the benefits and correct usage of the machine and how it can be coupled with other modalities for the greatest effect. We will compare this mechanical exfoliation to chemical exfoliation and when they can be used together. You will learn the correct and safe application of this modality and the best practice protocol.

Galvanic, High Frequency, Ultrasonic (3 modality class)

Adding machines to your skin care treatments can increase its efficacy. This is a three-modality class.

Learn how Galvanic can help make extractions easier with its saponification effect, and how it can help water-loving ingredients enter the skin with greater efficacy. Understand the benefits of ultra-sonic and ultrasound and the difference between them. Find out why the Tesla machine is germicidal and how it creates ozone. Learn the benefits of each of these modalities, their indications and contra indications and how to effectively and safely use each of them in your practice with ease and confidence


A procedure for the face. Dermaplaning uses a scalpel to exfoliate the stratum corneum layer and vellus hair from the skin. The benefits of this procedure:

  • smoother
  • hydrated skin
  • products penetrate better.
  • makeup application is smoother.
  • Helps to lighten post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

In this lecture we will cover the physiology and anatomy of the skin, contraindications, safe, application, and procedure. This class also comes with a thorough demonstration video

Micro-needling/Nano infusion:

Understand the integumentary system and the way that the collagen of the skin can remodel with the use of these modalities. Learn how they can improve many skin conditions such as lines in the skin, dermal atrophy, hyper-pigmentation, and help certain products penetrate better. Understand how to use these modalities safely and effectively.
