This module, composed of 10 clinical cases, assesses your knowledge of Aging Skin and Hair. On successful completion of this resource, you will be provided with one hour of CPD.
The skin is the largest organ covering the entire surface of the body. Similarly the effects of aging are most obvious in the changes that occur in the skin and is characterised by the development of wrinkles, reduced thickness, increasing pigmentation and increased laxity. Such processes are accelerated by two processes: photodamage due to UV exposure and hormonal changes. The changes associated with aging are therefore the focus of both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic interventions. For improved therapeutic outcomes it is important to understand the mechanisms through which the aging process alters skin, but also it is important to understand the hormonal changes that contribute. Similarly, knowledge of the processes involved in hair growth and hair loss can also optimise therapeutic outcomes.
This resource, composed of 10 multiple choice questions, is designed to assess your knowledge on the anatomical and physiological effects of aging upon the skin and hair, as well as to understand the impact of hormonal changes and interventions upon the skin. Also, it is important to appreciate the differences in facial characteristics associated with gender in order that one can optimise therapeutic outcomes.
Once you successfully complete the resource - and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% - you'll be awarded with a downloadable one hour CPD Certificate, which you can include for your annual appraisal or produce for your insurance company as proof of your ongoing learning in aesthetic practice.
