Combining Medical and Esthetic Treatments to Help Build Client Retention
This presentation will explore the most important roles the esthetician will play in a medical setting, including patient education on care of their skin before, during and after medical treatments. Combining medical and esthetic treatments to build client retention may include: pre- and postoperative skin care; skin disease intervention; lymphatic drainage to assist with ecchymosis and edema; camouflaging cosmetics to cover scars postoperatively; permanent cosmetics or micropigmentation for reconstructive purposes; or laser and light therapy for hair removal and facial rejuvenation. Attendees will come away with proven strategies and ideas to enhance patient care, and build relationships for better outcomes.

Technological progress may be fast-paced in many fields, but one mundane area has been almost left in the doldrums for the last 150 years: The basic technology for permanently coloring hair. That's the conclusion of an analysis of almost 500 articles and patents on the chemistry of permanent hair dyeing, which foresees much more innovation in the years ahead, including longer lasting, more-natural-looking dyes and gene therapy to reverse the gray. The article appears in ACS's journal Chemical Reviews. More
