  • Today, we are going to learn all about skin; how it functions, concerns about conditions or disease and concerns about conditions that would take away its’ inherent beauty.
    Also, we will review the skin’s needs for health maintenance and the 6 step skin care system.
    Natural vs. Synthetic vs. Organic and how they are defined and last, we will learn more about product ingredients, the good, bad and ugly!
  • Our industry continues to grow. Except for the 2008 – 2010 dip, it’s growth continues to accelerate. But it is becoming ‘different. We’ll talk about those differences.
  • What used to be strictly a hair & nail salon and a Massage Parlour transitioned to Hair Salon and Spa with massage, skin care, and nails, then massage moved over to work with skin and then massage moved in to work with chiropractors and skin care specialists moved in to working with doctors then skin care specialists started doing acupressure and then massage therapists started doing lymph drainage and fitness and yoga, and on and on. The licensing bureaus are still trying to figure out who does what and when the dust is all settled we all may be dual licensed if we work in spas because spa owners must utilize labour to its’ optimum in order to keep its’ doors open.
  • Today, Massage Therapist and Estheticians both do all these treatments in your typical spa, but are only licensed to do some of them based on their state license. But again, spa owners can’t afford to segregate these services and cut it’s chances on serving its’ customers.
  • With that said, as a massage therapist, the more you can learn about skin and go beyond your focus of muscles, the broader your career and the farther you can go in your profession. Knowledge is power!

  • In the Bellanina Facelift Massage class, our focus has been to just understand enough about the epidermis and dermis but we really never got into the more finite aspects of skin and skin cells, vessels, and tissue. COMPLEX structure.

  • Now that we have reviewed the structure, let’s look at the aging process. Accepted wisdom has told us that aging happens either by the environment or through our genes. However, there are many theories on aging.
  • There are so many skin conditions plaguing the human experience. Some are easily identified but there are many that baffle doctors and these doctors have to do elaborate tests to determine what it is or even what caused it.
    Tell the story of my hives incident. Body covered in hives. Dermatologist thought it was scabies but had to do a biopsy. Treated it with pyrithrum. Hard to diagnose just by visual sight.
  • If your skinis red, itchy, inflamed, or painful? These symptoms can indicate a host of skin conditions, including rosacea, eczema, contact dermatitis, psoraisis, ringworm, eczema, impetigo, pityriasis rosea
  • Lupus Solar Lentigo Pityrasis Rosea Keratoses Pilaris(chicken skin) Cellulite Ringworm (Tinea Corpis) Poison Ivy Herpes
    Lupus – Auto Immune (butterfly rash)
    Solar Lentigo – age or liver spots, benign
    Pityrasis Rosea -Although the etiology of pityriasis rosea is unclear, several factors indicate an infectious cause. First, outbreaks of the condition occur in clusters, suggesting that an infectious agent is circulating within a community.4 Second, recurrence of pityriasis rosea outside the acute phase is rare, suggesting that there is long-lasting immunity after the infection. Third, up to 69 percent of patients with pityriasis rosea have a prodromal illness before the herald patch appears.5 Finally, some patients with pityriasis rosea show an increase in B lymphocytes, a decrease in T lymphocytes, and an elevated sedimentation rate.6
    Keratoses Pilaris - is a common skin condition in which a protein in the skin called keratin forms hard plugs within hair follicles. (Chicken skin) backs of arms
    Ringworm – fungus like athelete’s feet
  • SKIP TO THE BACK CHART ABOUT WHAT IS CONTAGIOUS!
    Actinic Keratoses
    Basal Cell Carcinoma
    Granuloma Annulare - is a fairly rare, chronic dermatological autoimmune condition which presents as reddish bumps on the skin arranged in a circle or ring.
    Malignant Melanoma
  • As we age Telomeres shorten. The genes and chromosones become frayed
    Aplle Stem Cell
    Multi chain peptides are cellular messengers

    9. 9. The Structure of Your Skin 9 The epidermis layer where the natural process of exfoliation occurs. This is the protective layer for the body. The dermis layer is the “living skin”. This layer is contains the collagen and elastin that gives our skin it’s plumpness and elasticity. The muscular structure gives your face the fullness and shape as it wraps around the skeletal structure.
    10. 10. Structure of your Skin Epidermis tratum Corneum – the outer most layer of the epidermis eratinocytes - the bulk of the cells within the epidermis eratin – Protective protein that forms the chemical basis of epidermal tissues elanocytes - An epidermal cell that produces melanin, a black to brown skin pigment elanin - The primary purpose of melanin is to absorb UV rays. angerhans Cells - specialized cells of the immune
    11. 11. Epidermal Skin Cells Life Cycle 11 nspecialized stem cells in the deepest part of the epidermis divide by mitosis. They start to migrate upward toward the skin’s surface. long the way they manufacture a tough, resilient protein called keratin. s the cells migrate upward, they gradually flatten. nce they are too distant from any blood supply they die. hey remain bonded together by a waterproof adhesive until they are lost as some of the millions of skin flakes that fall from our bodies daily. INTERESTING FACT: Humans shed and re-grow outer skin cells approximately every 27 days.
    12. 12. Structure of Skin Dermis ollagen - the main structural protein of the all connective tissues lastin - is a protein in connective tissue that is elastic ibroblast - a cell that produces and secretes collagen ebaceous Glands - secrete an oily/waxy matter, called sebum, to lubricate and waterproof the skin and hair ebum - a fatty substance made by the sebaceous glands that help move toxins through the dermis and out to the epidermis, where they can be shed. apillaries - the body’s smallest type of blood vessels,

The result is less natural exfoliation resulting in often thicker, scalier skin. ebaceousness (Oiliness). Body skin is less oily than facial skin because it has far fewer sebaceous glands. Dryness may be more problematic. kin thickness. The facial epidermis is about 0.10mm thick, while body skin is thicker, around 0.60 mm. This environment can lead to a build up of dead skin cells.

New Theories in Science on Aging The Wear and Tear Theory Body and cells decline with use and abuse from stress, overuse, diet, toxins, bacteria, etc. The Free Radical Theory Just by breathing and breaking down food, our body creates free radicals, or molecules with unpaired electrons. These unstable molecules make their way through the body, scavenging our cells, trying to snatch up that missing part. 17
    18. 18. New Theories in Science on Aging The Telomerase Theory of Aging Findings that Telomeres, which are sequences of nucleic acids extending from the ends of chromosomes become shortened, frayed and contribute to degeneration of cells. The Mitochondrial Decline Theory of Aging The Mitochondria (organelles) found in every cell creates ATP which the body uses for fuel. It becomes less efficient, fewer in number and ATP(Adenosine Triphosphate) production declines. 18

    42. 42. Skin Types 42 DRY skin is often a temporary problem but can be irritating. Re-hydrating the skin is important to resolve this condition. SENSITIVE skin is highly reactive to certain products. This causes irritation and redness. OILY skin can be caused by several factors. Frequent acne and enlarged pores are common occurrences. NORMAL skin will have occasional dryness or blemishes but is usually smooth, clear and hydrated. Combination Most people have a combination skin type that will be a mixture of two or more common types. For example, a person with “combination” skin may have dry hands but oily face problems. INTERESTING FACT: The skin is the largest organ in the body and accounts for 12-15% of total body weight.
