Every practitioner working in the aesthetic field is exerting the best efforts to learn the best techniques to provide the best quality service however the best outcome of the aesthetic service does not depend only on a good technique but also on a good patient selection and making sure that the most appropriate technique is selected for the patient. Learning the patients motive, the expected outcome and evaluating the psychological status of the patient play a vital role in the final outcome and patient satisfaction.
Patient psychology plays a crucial impact on his/her self esteem and demands and this is reflected on the demands and satisfaction of any procedure he/she might undergo.
Keeping that in mind, it is mandatory for the treating physician to be able to evaluate the psychological status of the patient before discussing any cosmetic treatment modality and starting to implement it.
In Conclusion, It is important to:
- Understanding the Patient psychology
- Understanding the patient needs
- Using the best available procedure for the patient’s condition/problem
- Trying to achieve the desired results with the most natural result possible
- The goal should be rejuvenation and not a temporary fix or permanent damage
Acne vulgaris is the commonest skin disorder. It affects up to 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 years old. Twelve percent of women and 3% of men will continue having acne until the age of 45.
Scarring is the most common, most disfiguring, most distressing and most recalcitrant sequel of acne. It is, classically, the end result of severe cases of acne but also occurs with excoriated acne and, surprisingly, in some cases of clinically mild acne without previous noticeable inflammation or neurotic excoriation.
Post acne scars form in many shapes and in different degrees of severity from atrophic to hypertrophic and from cosmetically acceptable to socially embarrassing.
In few minutes, a scientifically simplified and direct-to-the-point review explaining the mechanism of scarring in acne and how to avoid and treat it will be presented. Prophylaxis and treatment cover the important instructions to be given to the patients and best treatment options available.
Skin is the interface between the human being and the surrounding society. The first impression we give to others, is given by “how we look”, and in our modern life, this raised the awareness about aesthetic products and procedures. It is surprising, with all the interest given to use beauty products and to undergo cosmetic procedures, how many doctors, beauticians and “clients” ignore the basic facts about keeping a healthy skin. To make the situation even worse, strange myths and trends gain popularity every now and then, that do more harm than benefit.
The ultimate result of all the treatment options we offer to those who come asking for our help and advice is obtain a healthy, good looking and socially attractive skin. Caring about the skin health should be the base that supports whatever aesthetic maneuver.
In this presentation, we will revise some of the basic facts and important tips about the health of the skin (and its appendages) and how to keep and improve it. Health is beauty and nothing is more beautiful than a healthy clean skin.
Alopecia areata Alopecia areata (AA) is defined as a chronic, recurrent and non-scarring alopecia. It is the second commonest cause of hair loss after androgenic alopecia. It is thought to be autoimmune in origin.
A number of important facts about Alopecia areata are still unknown including the exact pathogenesis of the disease. A number of significant developments have been reported over the last few years regarding alopecia areata and its management.
The commonest scoring system used for assessing alopecia areata is known as Scalp Area (SALT score) but interestingly this score can only assess the severity of alopecia areata on scalp. Alopecia areata involving the eyebrows, eyelashes, beard hair or body hair cannot be assessed by SALT score. To overcome this limitation, a new score known as Alopecia Areata Severity Index (AASI) has recently been proposed and published in Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
On the management front, many new drugs and procedural treatments have been fond useful in the management of alopecia areata. The most significant among them is JAK inhibitors like Tofacitinib. These molecules are used really commonly now in alopecia areata especially in progressive or severe disease. Other notable additions to treatment include Hydroxychloroquine, Apremilast and procedural treatments like Fractional laser resurfacing and Platelet rich plasma therapy.
