About

Overview

This extensive manual provides a modernized approach to hair removal and dispels the rumors, old wives tales, and half truths about hair growth, hair removal, and the techniques that are associated with the procedures. Deigned to act as a resource for students and practicing aestheticians, Advanced Waxing and Hair Removal discusses the must-know subjects of anatomy and physiology; patient interviewing; charting; techniques; and how to grow a hair removal business; and includes patient studies, photographs and recommendations for treatment. Illustrated are the processes of hair removal by following several candidates through different hair removal techniques and provides many illustrations to observe the results. Documentation of treatment plans, interviewing techniques, and patient recommendations are made available to the reader. In addition, the book discusses the use of lasers, who can perform this procedure, how it works, and why it may be the single prong in the hair removal plan for a patient. With its simple, non-intimidating approach, this handbook provides the reader with advanced, updated, and need-to-know information about the hair removal process.

This guide is designed to act as a quick drug reference for the aesthetician who requires information on drugs, their purpose, drug interactions, and potential effects and side effects, especially as they pertain to skin conditions.

Designed to increase knowledge in specific categories that are beneficial to patient care, the guide is organized to include coverage of common drugs for women; drugs used in the aging process; drugs used for autoimmune diseases; drugs for bacterial infections, viral infections, and fungal infections; drugs that affect the skin; drugs used for skin therapies; illegal drugs; and over-the-counter drugs. Special features of this reference guide include charts and illustrations for visual learning and a dictionary of drugs, their purpose and possible reactions.

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.
