Milady's Aesthetician Series: Common Skin Diseases: A Handbook for the Aesthetician  (ISBN-10: 140188170X | ISBN-13: 9781401881702)

Common Skin Diseases: A Handbook for the Aesthetician, part of Milady's Aesthetician Series, is designed to offer the aesthetician with the tools needed to work with clients who present with unfamiliar or unusual skin lesions. While it is critical for the aesthetician to know the answers to questions posed by clients, it is equally important for the aesthetician to avoid medical diagnosis and treatment recommendations. The aesthetician should know as much as possible about common skin diseases and disorders including what they look like, what the possible cause could be, what the course of action should be, and finally the outcome. This book addresses the common and sometimes not-so-common diseases and disorders that are seen on the skin, what they look like, and what to do about them. With the aid of photographs, descriptions, and illustrations, this book will help the clinician to know what they are looking at and what recommended action should be taken.
