Pretoria, 12 December 2019: According to Dr Chris Giezing, founder and medical director of Medskills Training Academy, facial aesthetics is challenged by its three-dimensional origin: dynamics, volume and skin degeneration. Therefore, it is a priority and not a luxury, to look after patients’ skin. The course ‘Skincare Overview Perspective on Cosmeceutical and Peel Training, offers a comprehensive scope of solutions and practical pointers on how to implement facial aesthetics in medical practitioners’ practices.

The modern medical aesthetics environment has changed over the past decade. The focus is more on an outcomes-based full-face approach, rather than treating individual problems. Chemical Peeling, PRP, TCA Peels, Micro-needling and Skin Boosters offer exciting new possibilities for both doctor and patient while serving as the foundation for skin treatments.

New developments in the ever-evolving field emphasise the importance of these indispensable aesthetic treatments for all aesthetic and anti-ageing practitioners – doctors and therapists alike. Patients are savvy regarding anti-ageing treatments. As medical practitioners, we need to educate and offer the “full package or basket” of treatments. The aim is to tie all those loose standing tools together into a powerful combination for the 3D “liquid facelift”.

This course provides detailed information on:

– The Business of Aesthetic Medicine

– Physiology, Anatomy and relevant Pathology of the Skin

– Cosmeceuticals, Chemical Peels and Micro-needling

– Incorporating these techniques into your Practice

– Treatment Protocols for various indications: pre-care and post-care

– Demonstrations.

Naturally, times have changed, but Medskills will give you the full rundown on how the modern medical aesthetic landscape has changed and how to implement every single tool to attain optimal results for your patients.
