8 The dermalogica skin treatment The professional environmentThe consultationFace Mapping® skin analysis for prescriptive retailThe techniques and professional product applicationYour script:Firstly, we need to look at providing the correct environment for our clients.Dermalogica provides many of these tools for you to use in your skin treatment center.You will learn how to use the consultation card (hand out consultation card) and by understanding the reasons behind each question, determine exactly what and why our client may be experiencing different conditions. The Face Mapping® skin analysis consultation card is one of the most important steps in the treatment as it will determine everything that you use and subsequently the expected results.We will guide you through Dermalogica professional systems, customization choices and specific pressure point aromatherapy massage techniques.The Face Mapping® skin analysis prescription is the final step to your treatment and a critical part to the experience. Our client seeks our professional advice and must maintain the health of their skin after their professional treatment. We cannot help them if they do not follow our advice!
9 creating a dermalogica skin care environment Visually – Sense of sightVerbally – Spoken wordKinesthetically – Through touch and feelYour script:The ultimate skin care experience should begin as the client enters the skin treatment center. Use Dermalogica’s support materials to help you advertise what you do and recommend. Make sure that you appear to be serious about skin care. Do not have magazines that advertise the spa down the street or other skin care brands. Everything is about the experience and how we affect the client.Visually – Sense of sight: reception area, treatment room, dress code, etc.Verbally – Spoken word: greeting on phone, at reception desk, tone and pitch are very important.Kinesthetically – Through touch/feel: helping the client relax and get comfortable, focusing on the client and their preferences, customizing the treatment.
10 room set up - preparation First ImpressionsWarm and inviting atmosphereSupplies and equipment in working order and on handCabinets clean and organizedFreshly laundered bedding, towels, and client garmentsYour script:First impressions: this is of course a picture of a professional treatment room, very clean, warm and inviting.Our goal here, while you are learning, will be to create a similar environment for our clients.Discuss:Feedback about how important it is to maintain a similar type of environment while they are in school.Protocols that you have established to maintain a clean and efficient learning environment.

All the options do not have to be done, but they will be learned. It will be up to you, the therapist, to choose the appropriate options for the client and their skin condition.We will go into more detail on each of these elements for the next few months. The key to learning and mastering each step is to pay attention to every detail, and practice, practice, practice.If you are currently using a skin care regimen, such as home peels, over the counter hydroxy acids or Retin A, you must interrupt your program while you are going through this program. We will be working on each other on a daily or weekly basis, so be gentle with your skin.
13 your professional products Largest selection of professional productsUsed by professional skin therapists onlyFormula breakthroughs and maximum strengthFull ingredient listing on packagingSpecialty products and retail products in professional sizeInstructors: Let students know that they will be training and learning with professional use only products that will enhance their learning experience in real time practical experience.Dermalogica has the largest selection of professional products in the industry and many unique ways in which they can be customized and used together. Many of the formulas are at a professional strength so are intended for use by professionally qualified skin therapists.Each product is researched and developed by The International Dermal Institute and is tested by instructors(PSTs) to ensure it performs in the treatment setting and will get the best results on your client’s skin. Designed by skin therapists for skin therapists not many companies can claim that or have the ability to put their products to work in a live training environment!You will be working with break through formulations for use in your treatments,like water-soluble cleansers and massage creams, oil free massage mediums, maximum concentration complexes and exfoliants that can be increased in strength!Dermalogica was also the first company to provide full ingredient lists on professional packaging.How the professional products are grouped:speciality range which are our unique, professional strength products, only available to the skin therapist and not to the client andthe core treatment range which are the Dermalogica retail products but in larger economical sizes.
14 Discovering more about your client the consultation cardDiscovering more about your clientNow let’s consider the importance of the consultation.Dermalogica pioneered the importance of the professional consultation and has always provided the Dermalogica skin therapist with these great tools to help. Knowing how to read the card and understanding what it tells you about your client is of vital importance.This is not just a tool to determine contraindications to a treatment, as it can also be used with great success to help you determine your client’s inherent skin conditions and probable cause, therefore aiding in the Face Mapping® skin analysis procedure and ultimately the ideal customized treatment for each individual client and their skin.It is not simply a formality, it helps you to show the client your interest in their skin health and how much you know!Quick Student Reference: Dermalogica – “the book” pages The Dermalogica consultation card
15 conducting the consultation Complete the card 15minutes before treatment timeClient signature is criticalThe card is essential for the Face Mapping® procedureExpectations andconcerns are addressedStudents have a consultation card in the back of their Dermalogica training manual “thebook”, to be filled out and collected. It is a good idea to read over and see if any arecontraindicated to being worked on in any way. If a student is using a different regimen orproduct line, it would be a good idea for them to put it on hold (unless medical) while theyare in training.Your script:Normally this is the most neglected part of the treatment, but it is a priority in orderto ensure that the client is happy with their treatment and you have addressed theirconcerns.The in-depth consultation will not only reveal any contraindications to your planned course of treatment, but will also give you a glimpse into the client’s current regimen and expectations of your services. Keeping your Dermalogica consultation cards up-to-date will, therefore, not only allow you to chart your clients’ progress, but will also be a vital legal record of whether or not each client has accurately disclosed related medical conditions.2. Produces a positive response from the client as they are being heard and are having your personal attention.3. Also makes the client focus on the treatment: skin health vs. a treat!4. Brings respect to the skin therapist, through the education and insight they can provide about the client’s skin condition.Although we do not need to be with our client at the time of completing the consultation cardwe need to be able to explain the importance of the card to our clients.If we are unavailable to talk to our client prior to the treatment we need to be able to discussthis procedure over the phone when booking the appointment or make sure that our frontdesk coordinator is able to explain this procedure.We must know and understand our consultation card from front to back in order to use iteffectively.The question, "How did you hear about us?" at the top of the consultation card allows you to track your skin treatment center’s advertising/promotional activity effectively. Also note how we have updated the card with asking for the client’s address.You must collect all relevant information to capture your client so that the contact information can be transferred into your database.
16 the consultation card your health 1. Within the last year, have you been under a dermatologist or other physician’s care?2. Within the last 9 months, have you undergone any surgery? If yes please specify ___________________________________3. Have you had any health problems in the past or present? If yes please specify ___________________________________4. List any medications, supplements, vitamins, diuretics, slimming tablets etc. that you take regularly ___________________________________5. Do you smoke?Students follow through with the consultation card. Stress that all of these details are in theirnotes. We really need to concentrate on product usage associated with concerns addressedon the consultation card.Your script:Client’s Health - Helps you to discover more about your client’s health and stress levels.If the client has been under a physician’s care in the past year, we must ask tactfully, “Do I need to be aware of the type of care, may it affect the skin?” May need to implement the “less” rule. If it has been a Dermatologist, then we may need to find out what procedures may have been performed as the skin could be very fragile, may need to check with the Doctor as to the suitability of the treatment we had planned.Recent SurgeryScars should not be massaged (IDI style petrissage or frictions) for at least 3 months (face area) or 6 months (body area).3. Health Problems:Cancer - No lymph drainage. If skin cancer, check with Doctor.Diabetes - Poor healing, no waxing or extractions.Epilepsy - No electrical currents.Heart Problems - No body massage. No electrical current.Hormone Imbalance - May experience acne or very dry skin, excess hair growth and weight changes.Hysterectomy - May experience skin breakouts and/or dryness.Thyroid Conditions - Underactive: dry skin Overactive: oily skin, which products would we use?Varicose Veins - No massage on the body due to the risk of moving a blood clot.Systemic Disease - Could indicate fragility and sensitivity with the skin, higher risk of bruising, poor healing. Check with Doctor if you are unsure if the client should be treated. A Doctor’s note can be requested and sent through to the skin treatment center or brought in by the client. Less rule applies for diabetes, no lymph drainage for cancer. If in doubt check with a doctor.4. Your client’s medications and vitamins can also have a dramatic effect on their skin.Note: For detailed information on skin reactions to medications, refer to Consumers Guide to Prescription and Non-Prescription Drugs by H. Winter Griffith M.D., Published by HP Books.SmokingSmoking depletes Vitamin C in the body, and therefore impairs healing. By restricting oxygen to the skin, smoking causes a yellow, sallow look to the skin. May cause comedones and fine wrinkles.
17 the consultation card your health 6. Do you exercise regularly? 7. Do you follow a restricted diet?8. Do you wear contact lenses?9. Do you have metal implants or pacemaker?10.Rate your own level of stress on a scale of 1to 4 (1 = low stress, 4 = high stress). _________________________________Regular ExerciseUsually improves skin condition by assisting in stress reduction, as well as the stimulation of circulation and elimination. Lack of exercise calls for a more detoxifying, stimulation course of treatment.Restricted DietIf a client is on a highly-restricted diet or fasting, breakouts can occur as part of the detoxification process. Extremely low-fat diets can result in dry skin. Long-term fasting can stimulate breakout activity, and hormonal imbalance.Contact LensesUse extreme caution around the eye area for people wearing contact lenses. Do not apply pressure on or around the eyelid, or ask if they would prefer to remove their contact lenses prior to the treatment.Metal Implants or PacemakerMetal implants and pacemakers contraindicate the use of electrical current in any form. Use caution when using electrical currents around areas of piercing.Rating Stress LevelsOn a scale of 1-4 (1 = low stress, 4 = high stress) gives the skin therapist an improved understanding of degree of stress impact.
18 the consultation card your skin 11. Do you have any special skin problems pertainingto your face or body? If yes, please specify __________________12. What skin care products are you currently using?face: soap cleanser toner moisturizermasque exfoliator eye productsbody: soap shower gel scrubs oil bodymoisturizer depilatory productsself tanners“Your skin” section helps you to find out how your client currently cares fortheir skin and what concerns them.11. Special problems that relate to your skin or bodyLet the client tell you about any special concerns they may have about their skin. Listen, and ask questions as to "why?" they have these concerns, particularly if you do not make the same observation about their skin. It is important to address their concerns in the treatment and provide solutions to their concerns.12. What types of skin care products are you currently using?Provides good indication to the level of skin care sophistication the client has. Are they a soap and water user? Or a more elaborate user of multiple department store products? Make product suggestions based on their current type of product usage, try to fill the gap.
19 the consultation card exfoliation history 13. Have you ever had microdermabrasion, chemicalpeels or any resurfacing treatments?14. Do you use Accutane, Retin-A, Renova, Adapaleneor any other prescription skin products?15. Are you currently using any products that containthe following ingredients: glycolic acid lactic acid any exfoliatingscrubany hydroxy acid product vitamin A derivatives (i.e. retinol)Exfoliation HistoryThis is a highly important part to the initial consultation as clients are often undergoing procedures that can be quite invasive. If waxing, these questions should also be asked to the client. The main rule is that the skin must be healed and healthy at a normal skin thickness before any exfoliation should take place. It is important to know when they had the procedure, depth of the exfoliation and what was advised in regards to subsequent exfoliation treatments.Your script:13. Chemical PeelsAs these are a possible contraindication to exfoliation and waxing, assess the depth of the peel and invasiveness of the procedure. Even for lighter depth peels assess barrier function, hydration and thickness of the skin before deciding on treatment procedure. For medium to deep peels avoid exfoliation and waxing for at least 6-8 weeks and if in doubt check with the client’s Dermatologist.Laser and Dermabrasion are also highly invasive procedures and skin healing must take place. If the client says that he/she has undergone dermabrasion question further to see if they are referring to microdermabrasion. This exfoliates to the same level of most other hydroxy acid exfoliation techniques but check on sensitivity.14. Retin-AIncreases cell turnover leading to a more fragile skin and dries it out. The skin will lift off if traumatized by waxing, rubbing or peeling. Be very gentle with the skin. Renova is also a Vitamin A (Retinoic Acid) derivative which also thins the skin.Acne drugsAccutane or Adapalene. Question your client further as there are constantly new drugs on the market in this category. Refer to notes on "Medications.” Accutane is a prescription oral drug for cystic acne. It has similar, but more dramatic effects to Retin-A. Avoid waxing, peeling, rubbing or stimulating the skin. Antibiotics like Erythromycin, Minocycline, Doxycycline and Tetracycline are also prescribed for acne, possible side effects such as photosensitivity, upset stomach, dizziness and skin discoloration. Oral contraceptives are also prescribed for acne and may also lead to skin discoloration.Products that contain Hydroxy Acids or Vitamin A derivatives like Retinol, will also affect skin thickness, fragility and sensitivity. Ask about the percentage of active ingredient in the product and assess skin turgor before performing exfoliation or waxing treatments.15. One of the most prevalent problems experienced by clients is over-exfoliation, which can result in dry, over-sensitized skin and premature aging. Carefully check their existing exfoliation regimen, and recommend that they discontinue these products before beginning a Dermalogica exfoliation regimen.
20 the consultation card moisture hydration 16. How much plain water do you consume daily?_____________17. How many alcoholic beverages do you consumeweekly? ___________________18. Do you ever experience these conditions on your skin? flakiness tightness obvious dryness19. What SPF sunscreen do you use on your face? _____body? _______20. Do you sunbathe or use tanning beds? yes noYour script:Moisture Hydration16. Water ConsumptionPLAIN water aids elimination and helps cleanse the skin internally. Flushes out impurities and hydrates the entire body. Recommend 8 x 8 ounce glasses per day.17. Alcoholic BeveragesCauses skin dryness and body dehydration.18. Flakiness, Tightness or Obvious DrynessClients experiencing flakiness, tightness and obvious dryness should increase their water intake, adjust to a richer moisturizer and use a moisturizing masque at least 3 times a week.19. Sun ProtectionAll clients should use a minimum SPF15 sunscreen over the face daily to prevent incidental sun damage. A sunblock should be applied to the body if sun exposure is anticipated, and the hands should always be protected by an SPF15 if they are exposed while driving in sunlight. Sun protection should be worn year round. Sun damage will cause premature aging, hyperpigmentation (age-spots), skin cancer, dryness and a thickening of the skin. Solar Defense System should be used year round to provide full sun block protection against damaging UVA and UVB rays. SPF used should be checked to ensure that your client is wearing the correct SPF and also question on ingredients, chemical vs. physical sunscreen agents should be noted if the client has a sensitivity to ingredients.20. Check whether the client uses tanning beds or tans regularly, as this may be the cause of significant sun damage.
21 the consultation card capillary activity oil secretion 21. Do you burn easily in moderate sunlight?22. Do you blush easily when nervous?23. Do you have a tendency to redness?24. Do you suffer from sinus problems?oil secretion25. Do you ever experience oily shine during the day?26. Do you ever experience skin breakouts?Your script:Capillary activity21. BurningIf the client burns easily in moderate sunlight, Dermalogica’s daylight defense system takes advantage of several new advancements in technology to protect from harmful UV rays. Products like our Solar Defense Booster SPF30, Super Sensitive FaceBlock SPF30, Sheer Moisture or Sheer Tint Moisture SPF15 and MultiVitmain BodyBlock SPF20 must be worn daily to protect the skin. Increased sensitivity and irritation will also be a concern.22. BlushingBlushing easily indicates a more easily-flushed skin, with a tendency to show redness quickly. Treat as a sensitized skin and avoid excess friction or heat. Check for possible signs of early Rosacea.23. RednessTendency to redness indicates a naturally-high color, and a more easily-irritated, sensitized skin condition. Always check for red blotching around the neckline and collar line.24. Sinus ProblemsIf the client experiences sinus problems such as hay fever, post nasal drip, allergies etc., the skin will be sensitized.Oil Secretion25. Oily ShineOily shine may indicate overuse of exfoliants, dehydration and/or overactive sebaceous glands. Focus on home care products that can regulate oil production without stripping the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Evaluate how quickly their skin is producing oil and suggest oil reducing treatment products like Skin Refining Masque or Sebum Clearing Masque and Oil Control Lotion.26. Skin BreakoutsFor clients experiencing breakouts, check for comedogenic ingredients in their current skin and hair and body care regimens as well as their make-up. The answers from the “Your Health” section will indicate possible causes. Ask what type of breakout. Comedones? Milia? Pustules? Check which products they are using. Recommend Special Clearing Booster to speed drying and healing. Overnight Clearing Gel, applied overnight for under the surface congestion and comedones. Clearing Skin Wash to cleanse and treat inflamed breakouts and excessive sebum production.
22 the consultation card nerve activity 27. Do you drink more than 4 caffeinated beverages daily?(coffee, tea, soft drinks)28. Do you ever experience a burning, itching sensation onyour skin?29. What is your pain threshold? low medium high30. Have you ever experienced claustrophobia?31. What type of massage pressure do you prefer light medium firm32. Have your ever had a reaction to any the following? cosmetics medicine iodine pollen food animals hydroxy acids fragrance sunscreensother___________________Your script:Nerve Activity27. Caffeinated BeveragesHigh levels of caffeine can increase skin sensitivity and blood circulation, reduces skin moisture levels and makes the client anxious during prolonged treatments. The client will also have a lower pain threshold. Caffeine is a natural diuretic. This will cause skin dehydration. It is a stimulant and can cause skin sensitivity, particularly to waxing, look for caffeine in teas, coffee, carbonated drinks and even some herbal teas.28. Burning or ItchingMay indicate the client may have environmentally sensitized skin. You should be very concerned about cosmetic allergies. We recommend doing a patch test on the inside arm with the exfoliating product you were planning to use and allowing them to try some Dermalogica samples at home, before undergoing a full treatment.29. Pain ThresholdThe client’s pain threshold will determine how firm you can be with massage and extractions and indicates their response to waxing. Check pressure and be aware when performing extractions.30. ClaustrophobiaClients who experience claustrophobia should never be wrapped tightly or have their arms wrapped. Never leave claustrophobic clients unattended during a treatment. Avoid enclosed masques such as Contour Masque, or any spa body therapy treatment where the client is wrapped in layers of spa wrappings (you may be able to leave one of the client’s arms out of the wrap to resolve the problem).31. Massage PressureAdapt your pressure to the client’s wishes. Add more Massage Cream to reduce friction. Add water to the Massage Cream in your hand to improve "slip and glide.”32. Allergic ReactionCheck the client's history of allergies which indicates their potential to be very sensitized. If in doubt as to client‘s suitability for treatments, do a patch test on the inside arm and let them try some samples of Dermalogica at home.CosmeticsEducate the client about comedogenic make-up and products. If the client marked “yes” to any of thefollowing, it will indicate heightened skin sensitivity:medicine – if topical medication, do not treat affected area.pollen – asthma, hay feverfood – allergies such as shell fish, wheat, peanutsanimals – pet danderIodine - Avoid full body seaweed wraps containing large amounts of iodine, such as Enzymatic SeaMud Pack.Hydroxy Acids - Avoid all products containing hydroxy acids.Fragrance - Counsel against products, especially personal fragrances and skin care products containing artificial fragrances (all Dermalogica products are free of artificial fragrances).Sunscreens - Recommend the use of physical sunscreen.
23 the consultation card female clients only male clients only 33. Are you taking oral contraception?34. Are you pregnant or trying to become pregnant?35. Are you lactating?male clients only36. What is your current shaving system?37. Do you experience irritation from shaving?38. Do you experience ingrown hairs?Your script:Female Clients Only33. ContraceptivesCan cause pigmentation changes and acne type breakouts. Recommend Chroma White TRx system for areas of hyperpigmentation.34. PregnancyCan cause hyperpigmentation. Swelling (edema) in the skin can occur leading to an increase in sensitivity. Avoid electrical equipment.35. Lactation and breast feeding will mean possibly avoiding pressure and heat over the breast area also check with the client about the use of essential oils on the body.Male Clients OnlyShaving SystemWet or electric shaving systems need Daily Clean Scrub to clean the skin and exfoliate, and prep the beard, and Invigorating Shave Gel, Soothing Shave Cream or Close Shave Oil to provide a barrier of moisture between the razor and the skin, Multi-ActiveToner to soothe and hydrate the skin and a moisturizer to prevent dryness. Daily Defense Block SPF15 is ideal after shaving as a 2 in 1 moisturizer and sunscreen.37. Shaving IrritationIf irritation is experienced after shaving, check against the use of artificial fragrantaftershaves being applied afterwards. Continued use of such aftershaves can lead topigmentation over the face and neck areas. Recommend Pre-Shave Guard, Soothing Shave Cream or Close Shave Oil. Multi-Active Toner to refresh and hydrate followed by Dermalogica’s Post-Shave Balm, an ultra-soothing shaving remedy to combat any dryness or chafing.38. Ingrown HairsIf the male client experiences ingrown hairs after shaving, recommend Daily CleanScrub before shaving to lift the hairs away from the skin, followed by Post-Shave Balm with Salicylic Acid.
24 the consultation card questions to discuss every visit 39. Are you currently having or due foryour menstrual period?40. Have your started any newmedication since your last visit?41. Have you had any recent dental x-rays?42. What are your skin care goals?Questions to discuss every visit:Your script:39. MenstruationSkin becomes sensitized around menstruation time. Swelling occurs. Advise the client of this before waxing, heat treatments or exfoliation.40. MedicationCertain medications can affect the skin condition especially Retin-A, Accutane, birth control pills, hormones, etc.41. Recent Dental X-RaysThis will shrink the sebaceous gland and cause temporary dryness of the skin. X-rays were used in the 1950’s as a treatment for acne but showed to be unsafe when patients who were greatly exposed to radiation developed throat cancer!42. What would your client like to achieve from the treatment today?Tells you if they want to be relaxed, fall asleep, energized, refreshed. It helps you to provide the client with the feelings they are looking for and this will ensure their return!
25 treatment/product record datetreatment/products used in treatment/contraindications/notessamples giventherapistOn the back of the Dermalogica client consultation card, fill in any contraindications to any treatments for the client and make any professional observations. Ensure the client and therapist both sign the consultation card and remember to include the date. The client signs each time they come when you recap their health.There is also a “treatment and product record” and “samples given” part to the card. Record the date, the service given, the retail products that were purchased, any samples that were given and the name of the therapist that attended the client. This allows you to follow-up the service accurately and have complete information on the previous visits the client has made to the skin treatment center. When you recommend Dermalogica to your clients, ALWAYS complete the face map and prescription sheet with the client. Give the top copy to the client and staple the second copy to their client consultation card.Now that we are comfortable with the consultation card, let’s take a look at some of the skin types and skin conditions that the consultation will help us to determine.
26 skin analysisBefore going on to the Face Mapping® skin analysis prescription sheet, your students will need to cover the basics of skin analysis, skin types vs. skin conditions.
27 skin types vs. skin conditions let’s look at…Let’s review skin type vs. skin condition as Dermalogica is quite unique in how we address this.Instructor: At this point you will want to change it up a bit and write on white board the information below. It can also be given as a homework assignment. Students to look up and create their own glossary and share information the following day.SKIN TYPES SKIN DISORDERS SKIN CONDITIONSOily Acne SensitizedNormal/combination Psoriasis DehydratedLipid Dry Eczema Prematurely AgingSensitive Rosacea CongestedPhotodamagedPigmentationSkin type, GENETIC (can’t change just keep in balance) vs. skin condition which are the day to day fluctuations which one “feels” from day to day and determines general skin health (which we can change). i.e. For an oily skin type with congestion and sensitivity we would choose a cleanser and moisturizer for the skin type (oily). The boosters/specialities and a masque etc. address skin fluctuations on a daily, weekly or even yearly basis.The condition of the skin can change from season to season, climate to climate. Most skin conditions change according to our environment and lifestyle.A professional consultation and analysis is the key to using the appropriate products and ingredients to help correct and maintain a healthy skin.skin types vs. skin conditions
28 contra-indications Herpes Simplex Impetigo Infected Acne Malignant melanomaAllergic reactionCuts/abrasionsOpen skin/bruisesThese are some of the most common reasons for not giving the treatment.Explain what the term “contraindicated” means: - a reason why they would not give the treatment.There are many contraindications, but if in doubt always check with a doctor who is the only person qualified to make a diagnosis.The more obvious reasons are: to avoid cross contamination, spread infections from one client to another or from client to therapist!Photos show: infected acne, open wound and herpes simplexInstructor: You will be covering Disorders/Diseases in:Milady Standard Fundamentals-Chapter 10Pivot Point Salon Fundamentals-Chapter 8
29 feedbackWhat are some of the characteristics of the professional treatment room?How important is the consultation card to the success of the treatment?Review pages “the book”A brief oral review and or feedback session at the completion of each segment is a great way to motivate and stimulate student interest. By keeping each segment minutes prior to a workshop, demonstration or break, we stimulate more interest.Get students to give you feedback on what they have learned to date, review and give appropriate feedback.Quick Student Reference: Dermalogica – "the book" pagesInstructor refer to chapters in theory text that relate to consultation and analysis. Give appropriate homework assignment.
30 understanding the skin treatment segment 2school programSegment 1This is your introduction to the Dermalogica segments you will be using as additional support material for a very important aspect of your curriculum. Every slide is scripted but as you become familiar with the material, you may add your own notes and comments.This segment outlines the material and introduces the Dermalogica Face Mapping® skin analysis Consultation Card, step by step.

31 preview-the skin treatment Each step in the treatment is unique and needs to be masteredWe will start out with an overview of each step and continue to expand on them as we progress in the courseIntroduce the course materials that will be available to them throughout the program.Text books, videos, Dermalogica Training Manual – “the book”Ask your students how many of them have had a professional skin care treatment? Get feedback about the experience.Were they comfortable throughout the treatment?How did their skin feel afterwards? Would they go back for another treatment?Every step in a treatment is unique, even the way the room is set up, bed, equipment, is very important. It is the first impression.Let’s take a look at the purpose of each step and its importance.Notes:
32 room set up - preparation First ImpressionsWarm and inviting atmosphereSupplies and equipment in working order and on handCabinets clean and organizedFreshly laundered bedding, towels, and client garmentsFirst impressions: this is of course a picture of a professional treatment room, very clean, warm and inviting.Our goal here, while you are learning will be to create a similar environment for our clients.Discuss the school rules, protocols, and guidelines for maintaining a clean and safe environment.Take students to demonstration/workshop area - show supplies and equipment storage areas, laundry area.Demonstration - Preparation and set up of bed and lab/workshop area.Discuss or show how to set up bed, position and drape client, safety practices, must be picture perfect…assign partners, students to do short practice on bed set up, draping and positioning of bed, lowering and raising client, raising and lowering therapist chair, students rotate and change partners until they have worked on each person.Correct and encourage.Students should fill out consultation cards during first several days of school, so that you can collect, look over, and check if there are any potential problems. Show students where and how to file consultation cards.Notes:
33 consultationGet to know your client and their concerns about their skinAscertain medical backgroundReview client’s current home regimenPrescribe effective skin care treatment and home careGo over the importance of the professional consultation system, extra details to mention are:Normally the most neglected part of the treatment, but it is a priority in order to ensure that the client is happy with their treatment and you have addressed their concerns.Ensures that treatments are carried out safely. Clients can easily sue without having signed the consultation card. They must always sign the card as this is the therapist’s professional protection.Produces a positive response from the client as they are being heard and are having your personal attention.Also makes the client focus on the treatment: skin health vs. a treat!Respect for the skincare therapist, through the education and insight they can provide about the client’s skin condition.Dermalogica Face Mapping® skin analysis Prescription Sheet ties into treatment and subsequent home recommendations.Quick Student Reference: Dermalogica – “the book” pagesNotes:
34 preparationEye and lip cleanse is performed with a mild cleanser for the delicate eye area3 small dampened cotton pads to apply and remove productRinse with damp sponges or warm steam towelOne of the first things you will learn is how to make the cotton pads from rolled cotton. They are convenient, sanitary and disposable. You may also use packaged cleansing pads.Eye and lip cleanse done with a mild cleanser will aid in protecting the delicate tissue in that area.The cotton pads will be made up ahead of time and dampened for ease of application and removal of product.You will rinse the area afterward with damp cotton pad or open new face sponges, which can also be used throughout the treatment.Notes:
35 cleanse Cleanse twice Clean water is used for each cleanse First, to remove makeupSecond, oils and surface debrisClean water is used for each cleanseYou may choose to use a different cleanser once you have removed client’s makeupThe purpose of cleansing twice:The client may be wearing makeup which doesn't allow you to assess the skin clearly, and may lead you to choose a different cleanser.The purpose of the second cleanse is to remove dirt and debris from the skin.Questions to ask:How many of them cleanse twice? Ask them to add it to their home routines and discuss it the following day.How many sleep with makeup on?Reference: “the book” page (could use as a homework assignment)Notes:
36 skin analysis To confirm visual observation – you will use: Face Mapping ® skin analysis techniqueMagnifying Lamp or headsetWood’s Lamp(if available)Your touch; feel for congestion, hot spots, texture, oiliness, etc.Once you have cleansed the skin, you will now be ready to observe and analyze the client’s skin in order to be able to determine the course of the treatment. The tools that you will be using:Dermalogica Face Mapping® skin analysis technique – A technique that guides you through a thorough visual analysis of the client’s skin aided by…A magnifying lamp or headset which magnifies about 5 times the original size.Wood’s Lamp – optional, but very good to have in today’s practice.The most important tool that you will learn to use will be your touch. Feeling the texture and heat of each area of the skin.Quick Student Reference for Face Mapping® skin analysis: Dermalogica - “the book” pages or Dermalogica cheat sheet (back of manual).Notes:
37 exfoliation To remove dead cells and increase cell turnover You have options – condition of client’s skin determines your choiceEnzymes – all skin conditionsAbrasive scrub – normal/combinationHydroxy acids – normal, oily, congested, sluggish orunderactive skin conditionsHydroxy acid/vitamin combination – dry, sun damaged,Webster’s dictionary:Exfoliate – to remove scales or splinters (from). To peel off in thin flakes, as in bark of a tree.The purpose of exfoliation in the professional treatment is to remove dead cells and prepare the skin for treating specific underlying conditions - with a few gentle grains or enzymes we may un-cap a clogged pore, loosen dead, dull cells, and smooth skin texture. The choice of professional exfoliants will depend on the condition of the clients’ skin.Abrasive scrubs are mechanical and work on the surface cells.Enzymes are biological catalysts that digest surface dead cells (examples are papain and bromelain).We will study the effects of hydroxy acids and vitamin therapies. They have revolutionized the skin care industry. Hydroxy acids dissolve the intercellular glue that holds dead cells together on the surface of the skin and speed up cell turnover. Vitamins work on a deeper level and help rebuild collagen and elastin.All skin conditions and types benefit from some form of exfoliation.*Clients that are using oral or topical medications that thin or sensitize the skin should not receive exfoliation treatments.Notes:
38 extractions Performed on oily, congested, acne prone skin Steam – to aid in deep cleansingDesincrustation – to undo blockages, using galvanic current on – negative poleVacuum suction, galvanic and high frequency – to soften and prepare skin for extraction procedureAll of the steps above help prepare the skin for extractions which is a technique for removing debris from clogged pores, blackheads, and pimples.After we have removed the dead crust from the surface, we are then ready to soften hardened sebum within the follicle, this can be achieved by using steam from a vaporizator, and an alkaline solution (explain the skin is naturally acidic) of mineral salts and a natural foaming agent (saponaria). You could point out the equipment the students will be using during this step.Performing extractions properly is necessary to prevent scarring and pigmentation, so we will learn how to do them properly.Notes:
39 massageThe massage technique used is based on client’s skin condition and needsStandard massage using effleurage, petrissage, tapotement and frictionDermalogica pressure point massageA clean skin paves the way for a massage which is usually considered by most clients to be the best part of the treatment. There are various techniques and methods and it is good to be proficient in several. Massage mediums will vary with your technique choice. One uses a creamy, rich massage cream which gives you slip and glide, or you may choose an oil-free massage medium.Introduce concept of alternative massage technique. While they are in school the student’s own skin may become a bit “sensitized” from practicing and learning on one another. You may also have several students who are sensitive and so present a condition that they can relate to.The Dermalogica Pressure Point Massage Technique is taught in the Dermalogica Touch Therapy series of classes. You may also use “the book” as reference. Page 199.You may choose to incorporate this technique before the students start taking clinic clients.Notes:

It may be used again under the moisturizer.Iontophoresis is employed by means of an electrical device called a galvanic or iontophoresis machine. Because the serums are acid based (as is the skin) and have a positive charge, they will be used on the positive pole.The Dr. Lucas is a hand held apparatus that emits a fine spray to rinse, hydrate and calm the skin. Serums, concentrates or herbal teas can be infused by the apparatus.Notes:
41 masque To calm, hydrate, nourish and treat superficial dehydration Setting – clay baseNon-setting – cream or gelSpecialty – paraffin wax, colloidal oatmealA masque applied during the professional treatment has a specific action that will help you personalize the treatment. The ingredients are corrective and will leave the skin with a smooth and refined texture.A clay based masque will help control excess oil and breakouts.A cream base will be nourishing and may contain vitamin therapy.A gel base masque has ingredients that attract and bind moisture to the skin; it may be medicated and cooling.There are many specialty masques on the market now. Specialty masques are often used over a concentrate or serum that will address the underlying deeper problem (e.g. alipoid). So that you are treating the underlying condition at the same time. The new technology in ingredients and formulas allow the masques to play a more important role in the deeper layers. It is important that the manufacturer clearly explain the purpose of the masque and how it works.The masque is removed with warm steam towels or damp sponges.Notes:

48 the importance of cleansing The basis of skin perfection and the skin care treatment is thorough cleansing. The skin must be cleansed thoroughly without overstimulation or disruption of the natural acid mantle.A successful cleansing routine must remove all the tinted make-up and debris from the skin’s surface, and gently remove dead cells.Ingredients should be formulated to effectively cleanse and purify, be non-stripping, water-soluble, easy to rinse, leaving the skin smooth and refreshed.Your Script: let’s begin with cleansers as that is a key step in treatments as well as home care.Why is it important for a cleanser to be water-soluble? So that it doesn’t leave a residue on the skin.Instructor, the next 2 slides cover Dermalogica’s PreCleanse.There may be information pertaining to how PreCleanse works that you would want to cover when you are teaching the theory chapter on Chemistry (solutes, suspensions, etc…) If so, you may “hide” the slide or skip over it.
49 what happens when skin is cleansed? When we apply a cleanser, we generally use a gel-based, sudsy or milky cleanser. All contain surface active agents (or surfactants) that provide the primary cleansing action. During the initial cleansing process, surfactants emulsify the fat or lipid debris such as sebum, make-up, environmental hydrocarbons and sunscreens, allowing them to be solubilized in the rinse water. Meanwhile, the water-based portion of the cleanser solubilizes the water-soluble debris, namely sweat and some of the environmental pollutants.Considering the amount of material that potentially collects on skin, one might expect that the initial cleansing will only remove superficial debris and is certainly not adequate for a thorough cleansing. For this reason, The International Dermal Institute always recommends a second cleanse, or double cleanse, to thoroughly remove oils, dirt and grime from skin. However, our studies have shown that even if one performs a double cleanse with a water soluble cleanser, there still may be some oil-soluble substances left behind – particularly when cleansing an oily skin.Go through diagram on slide…To be most effective in removing all oil, one should use a similar substrate.In chemistry it is said that like attracts like. Fatty, oily substances are best solubilized in lipid solutions. An example of this is the capability of mineral oil (or baby oil) to readily dissolve all make-up and oil from the skin. The problem with using mineral oil is that it cannot be rinsed away with water. To remove the oil, an alcohol-based toner is required – but alcohol is not recommended for skin and is certainly not recommended for the eye area. Think back to when cold creams were first developed to remove heavier oil-based make-up. They had to be tissued off, and then alcohol toners were applied to remove the oily residue. Eventually, water-soluble cleansers were developed and the need for alcohol toners subsided.
50 precleanse and the dermalogica double cleanse A light weight plant based cleansing oilDissolves surface oils and debris, emulsifies with water, rinses away oil and water soluble grimeEffectively removes oils, sunscreens, pollutants and cosmetics; gentle enough to remove eye make-upGreat for oily and sensitized skinWill not disrupt barrier lipidsProfessional size: 16 oz.Student reference “the book” pages Dermalogica PreCleanseAs a result of this research, The International Dermal Institute has developed Dermalogica's newest product that will revolutionize the double cleanse regimen: PreCleanse. This light, plant-based cleansing oil effectively liquefies sebum, oil-based make-up (including eye make-up, as it is gentle enough for use around the eyes), waterproof sunscreens and hydrocarbons from environmental pollutants without disturbing the natural barrier lipids. Only PreCleanse is formulated with plant-based oils that can melt the layers of oil-based debris on your skin as the oil molecules bond to each other, unlike the water molecules in your usual cleanser. These oils then emulsify when you add water to encapsulate and remove the trapped debris, allowing the recommended Dermalogica Cleanser to penetrate even further than before.PreCleanse is recommended for all skin conditions, and is ideal even for oily and acne-prone skin conditions. In fact, oilier skin conditions greatly benefit from PreCleanse, as it melts through sebum easily and without the use of surfactants that can strip the protective barrier or cause irritation.

You may prescribe a couple of segment products, but you should not begin them on the complete system as you may need to build up their personal skin tolerance with some of our active formulas. Also keep in mind there will be an adjustment period when the client may experience some breakouts and skin irregularity as the skin detoxifies and adjusts to the active ingredients found in Dermalogica.As you check in with your client and evaluate their skin’s response, you can then continue to adjust their routine as needed. The client may already be experiencing positive results and the entire system may not be required alternatively the skin may require more products from the system.Link: so let’s begin with exfoliation…
55 professional exfoliation Biologically active exfoliants to smooth, refine and prepare the skin for absorptionYour Script:Skin exfoliation improves the texture and tone of all skins while preparing the skin for better absorption of treatment products.The human skin desquamates +/- 36 million dead cells a day (about 1 million every 40 minutes). You are all breathing in each others dead cells right now, and when you dust your furniture at home you are probably clearing up your friends! By the time you go from the bottom to the top of an escalator, you will have breathed in the entire body surface of the person in front of you! These dead cells can dull and dry the surface of the skin causing congestion and an uneven appearance.Dermalogica provides a range of professional exfoliants to suit client need and required level of exfoliation, in a gentle, but highly effective procedure.
56 exfoliation The process of removing excess dead cells Allows for better penetration of treatment ingredientsEncourages new cell growthAn exfoliant is the medium used to smooth and even texture of the skinMay be physical or chemicalInstructor: This section is an overview and introduction to the exfoliation step in the core treatment - it will be covered in-depth in the segment that applies to advanced facial treatments.Your Script:Webster’s dictionary:Exfoliate - to remove scales or splinters (from). To peel off in thin flakes, as in bark of a tree.The exfoliation step paves the way for treating specific underlying conditions - with a few gentle grains or enzymes we may un-cap a clogged pore, loosen dead, dull cells, even skin texture…This can be achieved by mechanical (scrubs, micro-exfoliants, machines, abrasives) or chemical processes (enzymes, hydroxy acids).*Clients that are using oral or topical medications that thin or sensitize the skin should not receive exfoliation treatments.Student Reference: Dermalogica –“the book” pages – Greatinformation on formulating and the level system that is unique to Dermalogica.Slot in where pertinent.If you need more in depth training on exfoliation please sign up for the Dermalogica Skin Exfoliation and Resurfacing Techniques class.
57 exfoliation All skin conditions Acne Dehydration Aging Skin PigmentationAsk the group: Why do we need to exfoliate the skin?Skin exfoliation improves the texture of all skins while preparing the skin for better absorption of treatment products. However, we have to be careful with this step and always work safely. The human skin sheds around 1 million skin cells every 40 minutes, that's 1.5 lbs. of dead skin a year, 36 million dead skin cells a day.Why is exfoliation important in the treatment room?Exfoliation is the one of the most important parts of the professional treatment where the client can see a visible improvement in their skin. Clients also seek out skin treatments for the type of exfoliation offered, think of the popularity of microdermabrasion and hydroxy acids.Which skin conditions benefit from exfoliation? All skin conditionsAcneIn acne, we know that there is an over-production of sebum and dead cells (about 5X more dead cells are produced). This binds together in the follicle causing a blockage. So what we have is retention hyperkeratosis, which is a common factor in acne. Hydroxy acids will do the job of the skin’s enzymes to dissolve the NMF and allow the cells to detachDehydrationLack of moisture in the Stratum Corneum leads to gaps in the cellular barrier. Moisture evaporates from below and we get a dehydrated skin. Clients attempt to overcome this by over-moisturizing - which is literally sticking the old cells down and this leads to a dull, uneven skin textureAging SkinCell production slows down as we age. So as the journey from the Stratum Germinativum to the Stratum Corneum takes longer, it means the cells are hanging around on the surface for a longer period of time getting drier and duller.PigmentationHydroxy acids will shed the pigmented cells more quickly, so are great combined with ingredients that suppress the melanin production. RESULT: more even skin color which also makes skin look younger.
58 safety steps: contraindications and precautions Signed consultation is critical & always face mapLipid barrier must be intact – look for signs such as recent colds, caffeine, sensitivity, travel, low fat diets, exfoliation products at home. Check history of resurfacing treatments, chemical peels, etcDo not exfoliate highly sensitized, broken, injured, sunburned or recently waxed skin (24 hours)Prevent problems arising- can patch testDo not use on any clients who are taking Isotretinoin or have taken it in the past 6 monthsDo not use on clients who use Retin-A, Renova, Adapalene, Epiduo or any other medically prescribed topical acne products, they need to discontinue use for at least 2-4 weeksNever leave a client unattended and always remove thoroughly!Always apply and prescribe a sunscreen! No sun exposure for a week- SHOW AND TELL CONSULTATION CARD AS YOU GO THROUGH THIS.Precautions/Contraindications for all professional exfoliation - explain contraindication is -absolutely cannot do, and precaution is a warning/awareness to consider.A signed consultation card is critical to your safety and your clients safety. The majority of litigious action taken against PSTs is due to the exfoliation step. You must review contraindications with emphasis on checking, questioning and reading. Use Face Mapping skin analysis to back up what the consultation card tells you. If your client is new to professional exfoliation you must be cautious versus ambitious, safety should always be first with this step.Precaution/possible contraindication: Barrier Function, a simple cold that has caused the client to repeatedly wipe their nose thus causing slight trauma to the nose and lip area could result in a burn-like problem if it goes unchecked. High caffeine intake, diet pills, low fat diets, frequent travel, soap and water users will all likely be dehydrated and therefore an impaired lipid barrier. Medical resurfacing procedures, microdermabrasion, chemical peeps and what exfoliating products a client uses at home can all adversely affect your treatment. Rinse off immediately if product irritates skin. Mild tingling or stinging may occur and is normal and should dissipate quickly.Contraindication: Do not exfoliate if skin is sensitive, sun burned or irritated 48 hours before waxing or within 24 hours of waxing.Prevent problems - For MultiVitamin Power Exfoliant and EA35 we recommend that you perform a patch test prior to application if you are concerned about clients sensitivity or reactivity to a highly active product. Apply to a small, inconspicuous area (i.e. behind the ear) leave on for 10 minutes and remove with the Dermalogica Double Cleanse. Keep in mind that this isn’t 100% reliable as you are applying to the skin on the face which may have areas with impaired barrier function and many times a reaction takes time (i.e. 24 hours) to develop. Ensuring you have consent from the doctor (if in doubt) is the safest route.Contraindication Medically prescribed exfoliating products - These are mainly prescription drugs for the treatment of acne. They treat the condition of retention hyperkeratosis in the acneic skin by speeding up cell turnover, causing less blockages in the follicle. Isotretinoin (previously known as Accutane) has some generic versions, which some of your clients may be on or you may be familiar with: Claravis, Amnesteem and Sotret. Please remember that although we give a guideline of minimum 6 months, this will depend on the client’s skin – how long have they been on the product, what else they use on their skin, what other medications are they on etc. With regards to medically prescribed topical products such as the ones listed on the slide or Differin, Epiduo Gel (Differin and BPO) Ziana Gel (Tretinoin and Clindamycin), Tretinoin, Atralin, Avita, Refissa, Retin- A, Retin-A Micro, and Renova, the guideline is between 2-4 weeks after they have completed their prescription (depending on how long they have used their topical product, areas of use etc.)You will also need to perform a Face Mapping skin analysis to ensure you are taking the necessary precautions for both the exfoliation in the treatment room and home care regimen. Please remember that the first time you exfoliate, we recommend that you choose a mild form of exfoliation (such as Daily Microfoliant) and see how the skin responds. Remember to follow doctor’s orders first and ensure it is safe for the client to have exfoliation.Do not leave your client during a professional skin exfoliation - We should be with our client throughout the entire skin treatment. Follow direction and always remove thoroughly.Increase sensitivity to the sun - Hydroxy acids may increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sun exposure while using a product with hydroxy acids. Clients MUST wear Sunscreen, prescribe a minimum SPF30!

Note different colors for each segment.These are the retail components that are available – as you can see, there is a full range of professional treatment products to continue the clients skin treatments in the home so that they may get the best results possible. In addition to this overview, you have your Dermalogica training manual as an excellent resource.Read what will be covered from slideTeachers please take note of the following with regards to the segmentation lines and remember to mention to students:When a client is new to Dermalogica products, and also quite possibly to professional grade skin products, it is advisable to get them started on The Gray Line. You may prescribe a couple of segment products, but you should not begin them on the complete system as you may need to build up their personal skin tolerance with some of our active formulas. Also keep in mind there will be an adjustment period when the client may experience some breakouts and skin irregularity as the skin detoxifies and adjusts to the active ingredients found in Dermalogica.As you check in with your client and evaluate their skin’s response, you can then continue to adjust their routine as needed. The client may already be experiencing positive results and the entire system may not be required alternatively the skin may require more products from the system.
114 User-friendly skin analysis for correct product prescription Designed by The International Dermal Institute to use exclusively with Dermalogica products and The Dermalogica Skin TreatmentUser-friendly skin analysis forcorrect product prescription14 different zones covering theface, neck and chestStudents should have copies of the Face Mapping skin analysis prescription sheets - refer them to look at it.Face Mapping skin analysis took the industry by storm! Never has a skin analysis been so personalized and thorough! Basically what we see (ask students to pick up their Face Mapping skin analysis prescription sheets), is that the face is divided into 14 different zones. The skin therapist goes through these zones very thoroughly to determine a customized Dermalogica skin care prescription for their client.Face Mapping skin analysis is a concept used only by Dermalogica. This concept has proven to not only help the therapist retain clients, develop more respect and trust, but also dramatically boosts retailing success.We want you to have a better understanding of Dermalogica’s products and which ones would be best suited for various skin conditions…Link: We will briefly re-cap skin types and skin conditions…

Skin conditions occur as we go through various stages in our individual lives and the skin type is affected by external or internal factors.Briefly go through each one.

117 dermalogica cleansers Your Script: questions you should ask your students.Why do we need to cleanse our skin? How often do we need to cleanse? Why do we need to cleanse our skin twice? Why do we need to cleanse our face in the morning?The following is great consumer information for students to pass on to clients.All of Dermalogica’s cleansers are water-soluble. They don’t leave a residue on theskin. They are quick and easy to use in the shower.There is 1 precleanser, 3 cleansers for the 3 skin types, plus 4 segment cleansers to target specific skin concerns or conditions. One to target acne skin disorders in the MediBac ClearingTM line, one for an environmentally sensitized skin, one for a skin concerned with signs of aging in our AGE smartTM line and the 2-in-one Daily Clean Scrub in the Shave line.The cleansers come in three sizes:1.7 oz. – 4 weeks8.0 oz. – 3 months16.0 oz. – 6 months*PreCleanse comes in 5.1fl ozWith all cleansers, you use a small amount with damp hands, use in a circular motion over the entire face and wash off with tepid water. Use twice a.m. and twice p.m. for professional results.These cleansers are suitable for all skin conditions because they have ingredients to soothe and calm a sensitized skin condition and ingredients to hydrate a dehydrated skin condition.Explain the size or amount they need to use of each product.All cleansers: use a quarter size amount EXCEPT –Special Cleansing Gel, Daily Clean Scrub and Clearing Skin Wash: use a dime sizeamount.All dermalogica cleansers are soap-free, completely water-soluble and acid balanced to purify thoroughly without stripping the skin's natural barrier lipids

119 (great for oily and sensitized skin) pre-cleanserPreCleanse - A light-weight plant-based cleansing oilDissolves surface oils and debris then emulsifies when water is added to rinse away oil and water-soluble grimeGentle enough to remove eye make-up; effectively removes oils, sunscreens, pollutants and cosmeticsWill not disrupt barrier lipidsall skin conditions(great for oily and sensitized skin)student reference: “the book” page 12PreCleanse: This light, plant-based cleansing oil effectively liquefies sebum, oil-based make-up (including eye make-up, as it is gentle enough for use around the eyes), waterproof sunscreens and hydrocarbons from environmental pollutants without disturbing the natural barrier lipids. Only PreCleanse is formulated with plant-based oils that can melt the layers of oil-based debris on your skin as the oil molecules bond to each other, unlike the water molecules in your usual cleanser. These oils then emulsify when you add water to encapsulate and remove the trapped debris, allowing the recommended Dermalogica Cleanser to penetrate even further than before.PreCleanse is recommended for all skin conditions, and is ideal even for oily and acne prone skin conditions. In fact, oilier skin conditions greatly benefit from PreCleanse, as it melts through sebum easily and without the use of surfactants that can strip the protective barrier or cause irritation.Instructor: If not done previously during the professional products class, you might refer to the chapter in the theory text books on chemistry (solutes, emulsions, etc…) Demonstrate the easy removal by applying lipstick or heavy eyeliner on the back of your hand –then work in small amount of PreCleanse – dampen hand and work over area, then rinse off. Cleanse again with any dermalogica cleanser.

This will remove dead surface cells and smooth the texture of all skin conditions, except users of Retin-A and Accutane. A home care exfoliant should provide the ultimate clean skin surface without harsh drying.Gentle Cream Exfoliant: A gentle hydroxy acid exfoliant that also contains Fruit Enzymes (pineapple and papaya) that micro-exfoliate the surface of the skin in a non-abrasive method and improve smoothness and texture of all skin conditions.

126 dermalogica masquesStudent Reference: Dermalogica – “the book” pages 34-37Masque TherapyEveryone’s skin care regimen can greatly be enhanced by regular use of a treatment masque. Masques have specific actions which reinforce the daily regimen and each masque has a different action on the skin. The actions of a masque are refining, revitalizing and nourishing. Depending on the formulation of the masque, they are used to give concentrated benefits to the skin which increase the action of those products that are used daily.While masques are not an everyday part of skin care, they are crucial for optimizing skin health. Depending on the skin, they may be used once, twice or three times a week. Leave on the skin for 10 minutes and remove with tepid water.Link: how many of you think your skin is lacking water? Feels tight?Regular use of treatment masques greatly enhances a daily regimen by providing extra nourishment, refinement and revitalization to the skin, solving specific problems to leave the skin radiantly healthy

This research has resulted in the development of AGE smart® a system of retail and professional products designed to specifically treat and control the structural manifestations associated with skin aging and the biological triggers that lead to these changes.

161 what is face mapping® skin analysis? reading the skin and effectively communicating to the client what you discover and prescribing the correct regimenYour script:As new students, you may feel overwhelmed at the prospect of retailing while you are still learning how to perform the core treatment, but this is a tool that will help you communicate to your clients in a positive manner and reassure them that you can provide solutions for their skin care concerns.What is face mapping® skin analysis?How we communicate what we see, feel and observe about our client’s skin is vitally important. The information we pass on about their skin, touches on who they are, and their current lifestyle.A simple statement at the beginning of every treatment will help you get started, such as:“I am going to be giving you a professional skin treatment today. I will ask a few questions and share some information about your skin with you during the cleansing and Face Mapping® portion of the treatment. Don’t worry, you will have plenty of opportunity to completely relax but as your skin therapist it’s my job to know as much as possible about your skin and also educate you about it.”Instructor, role playing with your students during the work shop portion will help them to process this technique in a very short period and they will have a fun time doing it!In the workshop phase, you may even have students face map clients that are waiting in the school reception area or students from another class. This breaks down resistance to approaching clients when they are assigned from the clinic floor.

164 let’s review – the consultation card Step 1 - Let’s just cover a few of the main points on the card, and discuss why it is important to gain this information.Direct students to detailed information in their Dermalogica training manual.Go through the sections.Your HealthKey to discovering the safety of treatment, as well as medications, surgery and lifestyle contribute greatly to general health and affect the skin greatly (i.e. recent surgery, client on antibiotics, increased sensitivity with the skin). This section also helps you to establish stress levels (i.e. Is the client a smoker? How are their sleep patterns? Do they exercise?).Your SkinSection helps you to find out how your client currently cares for their skin and what concerns them. Water temperature: either very hot or cold water can sensitize and dry the skin. Recommend using tepid water temperatures. Special problems that relate to your skin or body. Let the client tell you about any special concerns they may have about their skin. What types of skin care products are currently be used? Provides good indication to the level of skin care sophistication the client has. Are they a soap and water user or a more elaborate user of multiple department store products?Exfoliation HistoryToday, this is a highly important part to the initial consultation as clients are often undergoing procedures or using active exfoliation preparations that can be quite invasive. The main rule is that the skin must be healed and healthy at a normal skin thickness before any exfoliation should take place. It is important to know if your client has had any previous exfoliation procedures or treatments, like chemical peels, microdermabrasion,etc…Moisture HydrationWater, alcohol, sun exposure and lack of adequate protection will indicate how well hydrated client’s skin is.Capillary ActivityRedness or increased capillary activity. Ask the client what level SPF they have been using: Do they blush easily? Experience redness? or Sinus problems. This section will indicate possible early stages of Rosacea, skin sensitivity and sensitized skin.Oil SecretionEnables you to discover how oily your client’s skin is and whether they may be acne prone. Evaluate how quickly their skin is producing oil and what types of breakouts they may experience. Do they have Comedones? Milia? Pustules? Check ingredients in products and make-up. This section will help us in choosing the ideal cleanser from The Gray Line.Nerve ActivityKnowing more about your client’s nerve activity will help you to ensure that the client has the best experience. If nerve activity is heightened, this could lead to a possible reaction to the treatment and certain products. Question further about caffeine, burning, itching sensations on the skin, pain threshold, the client's history of allergies. If in doubt as to client's suitability for treatments, do a patch test on the inside arm and let them try some samples of Dermalogica at home.Female Clients OnlyThese questions must be answered as contraceptives, pregnancy, lactation and breast feeding can greatly affect what treatment can be performed and what signs are expected on the skin like pigmentation changes and acne type breakouts.Male Clients OnlyIf your male client complains of shaving irritation, it may be their routine or procedure they are following. Ask whether they prefer to shave with a wet or electric method, use aftershave, soap, experience ingrown hairs, etc. They will be very happy to have their problems addressed and solved!Questions to Discuss Every VisitSkin becomes sensitized around menstruation time. Swelling occurs. Advise the client of this before waxing, heat treatments or peeling. Any new medication? etc…Your healthYour skinExfoliation historyMoisture hydrationCapillary activityOil secretionNerve activityFemale clientsMale clientsQuestions to discuss every visit

The opportunity to try products, see instant results and get worthwhile advice is what the consumer is demanding.Clients will invest in a regimen that works – instant gratification along with getting value for money motivates clients to buy professional grade products versus mass brands, even if the price tag is a little higher than average.How to map:Communicate the conceptPut on the headset/magnifying lampIntroduce each zone to the clientWork methodically, touch and feel the skinExplain what you see and feel, educate the client and ask questions about their skin(asking questions is critical as it provides ”aha” moments for the client when they learn something, establishing you as an expert)
166 what to look for? Skin type Normal/combination Oil dry Oily Acne Sensitive/RosaceaSkin conditionDehydrationSensitizedAging/premature agingPigmentationCongestion/breakoutsInstructor: recap skin type vs. skin conditions. Students need to grasp that we can not change skin type with product, only maintain the associated symptoms. We can however change/ improve skin conditions with product.Overview skin types in Q&A style. Cleansers and moisturizers are recommended to maintain skin type as these are used on a daily basis. To address skin conditions we will look at all the other product categories.Skin Type is what we are born with and can be measured by the amount of oil secretion in the skin. The skin’s reactivity and capillary activity can also be genetically determined. We can’t change an individual’s skin type. We can only control the symptoms of the skin type with product, but without the product the skin would revert to the original state. It’s a bit like hair color. We are born with a hair color that we can change using product. Stop using the product and the hair will eventually return to the original color.Skin conditions we acquire through external and internal factors such as UV exposure, incorrect product choices, climate, immediate environment, medication, stress and lifestyle. The condition of our skin will fluctuate whereas our skin type remains constant. Cover conditions later. …Normal: Very rare! Not many of us have a normal skin - only when we are very young. This skin is balanced in regards to oil secretion but falls out of balance easily by hormonal changes and environmental factors. For someone who has been born with a normal skin, maintenance is still very necessary. To maintain a genetically normal skin type without any visible problems, we would recommend a simple routine that maintains hydration and protection.Oil Dry: This type of client will experience a lack of oil over the entire body as they have a smaller sebaceous gland that is under-active. This skin requires stimulation, warmth and oil-rich products to nourish and stimulate. For a dryer skin recommend a creamier cleanser and nourishing moisturizer.Oily: Clients need to keep the skin clean, free from debris to prevent breakouts and comedones, try to control over-secretion of oil. The skin needs to be judged as to whether it is thick, coarse and oily all over or maybe just oily in the classic T-zone. Zones 1,2,3,7 and 12. For an oily skin recommend a deep cleansing, purifying type cleanser and lightweight, oil-free moisturizer.Acne: As it is a genetic predisposition, medication or doctor’s advice may be needed for Grades 3 & 4, where there is inflammation, pustules, papules and in severe cases nodules and cysts. For Grade 1 & 2, this tends to be more like a condition as it is the oily skin that has been influenced by other factors and characterised by open and closed comedones and the occasional papule or pustule.Sensitive: This skin type is genetically predisposed to be sensitive. There is often a family history of hay fever, asthma and eczema. The skin is normally fair. Traditionally, we have always suspected thinner, fairer skins to be more susceptible to sensitive problems.Rosacea: As skin therapists we need to be aware of the first signs of rosacea. This is a genetic vascular disorder with four different stages of development. The exact cause is unknown, though we know that it is a disorder. It is mainly seen in Caucasians with light skin and hair - there is a strong genetic influence, but the exact genes have not been identified.
167 face mapping® skin analysis zones Step 2Your Script:During the analysis, a continual dialogue should be held between you and the client on what is being looked for and what is found.By covering the skin inch-by-inch a true analysis of the skin’s condition can be obtained and- you can imagine the zones in an overlay on your clients face.Face Mapping® skin analysis provides you with an opportunity of positioning yourself as the expert in skin care. You can provide the client with an insight into their skin (through talking during the Face Mapping® skin analysis and writing on the face map) in such depth, that they have never experienced before.Students have FACE MAPPING® SKIN ANALYSIS LAMINATED CHEAT SHEET located in the back of their training manual.
168 face mapping® skin analysis zones Map your findings:b = Breakout activityc = Comedoned = Dilated capillariesdh = Dehydrationm = Miliap = Pigmentationfl = Fine linesdl = Deep liness = Sensitivity/rednessHand out copies of the Face Mapping® skin analysis prescription sheetStudent Reference: pages “the book”Your Script:This is not an extra step, it is performed during the analysis. It simply divides the face, neck and décolleté into 14 Zones that you will cover very methodically.Instructor: At this point write on white board so they realize the purposeA customized treatment (hold up consultation card).A home care regimen (hold up prescription sheet) can be prescribed.This is the most in-depth, and methodical way to look at the skin. Point out the different zones.A code has been developed to help you to record your findings on the prescription map. This will help the client to understand exactly what they should be doing at home. It also is a convenient record to be attached to the consultation card.Read out each code.skin conditionb = breakout activity (inflamed, swollen or pus-filled breakouts)c = comedones (blackheads, clogged pores)d = dilated capillaries (tiny or fine veins or blood vessels)dh=dehydration (lacking moisture or water)m= milia (whitehead, generally not swollen and common under or around the eyes)p = pigmentation (includes dark (hyper) pigmentation like sun-damage or white (hypo)pigmentation)fl= fine lines (crows feet, first signs of aging)dl= deep lines (long term UV exposure, sun damage)s= sensitivity (redness, flushing/blushing, rash, razor burn, thin skin, over exfoliation)168
169 tools to work with Analyze the skin with: Your eyes through the magnifying lampYour woods lamp/skin scannerYour touch, feel for congestion, hot spots, texture, oiliness and drynessYour Script:These are the main tools that assist in carrying out a thorough analysis. Talk about the importance of good equipment.The magnifying lamp must be kept clean and is normally a 5 diopter strength.Skin Scanners are a great investment and will boost retail sales. Hand held Woods Lamps will also help give a more accurate account of what is going on with the skin.Woods LampIn Dermatology, it is used as a diagnostic instrument, to analyze skin types through their different shades, characteristics and peculiarities.The lamp must be used in a totally dark room, and blemishes that are barely visible to the naked eye can be seen under the rays.This instrument uses UV ‘black light’ to fluoresce skin conditions and abnormalities.Nothing will take the place of experienced touch, through your hands you will “feel” for congestion (bumpiness under the skin) hot spots or sensitive areas, texture (smooth or rough, coarse) oily, greasy feel or very dry “parched” skin.
170 The Face Mapping® Skin Analysis Prescription Sheet Along with the consultation, Face Mapping® skin analysis and insanely great treatment, the prescription sheet is part of the service we are providing for the client. Our treatment does not end with the application of moisturizer. The service is not complete without discussing the personalized prescription sheet.The Face Mapping® Skin Analysis Prescription Sheet will benefit both the therapist and client.For the therapist, the prescription sheet is a great tool to help with product recommendations and is invaluable to help close the sale. No longer will we wildly gesture at a complete shelf of product in the hope that the client might ask for something. The Face Mapping® skin analysis prescription sheet allows us to recommend specific products to deliver targeted results.After we go over the “how” and “why” of Face Mapping® skin analysis you will be able to pair up, practice and fill out prescription home care for one another.Let’s take a look at each zone and some of the possible skin conditions that we may find.
171 the zones Zones 1 & 3 – Forehead: possible breakouts, dehydration Nose: congestion, redness, flakinessZones 4 & 10 - Ears: comedones, sensitized skinExplain to the client as you are touching each area what you may be seeing or feeling.Start at ZONE 1 & 3 – left and right side of forehead Looking and feeling for congestion, irritation and breakouts. Check along the hairline and eyebrows. Congestion in this area may be due to improper cleansing and removal of products.ZONE 2 – in between eyebrows- Looking and feeling for congestion, areas of excess oil production and possible ingrown hairs. Cleaning improperly, over active sebaceous activity in the t-zone.ZONE 4 & 10 - ears - Looking for comedones and congestion, heat.You will be checking behind and inside the ear. It is a common thing to see comedones in the ears. This often happens because of product and shampoo collecting in the well of the ear and not being rinsed or removed.
172 the zones Zones 5 & 9 – Cheeks: sensitized skin and hot spots, milia Eye area: milia, fine lines, dark circlesDo not place eye pads on the eyes, as you will need to look and feel closely around these zones.ZONE 5 & 9 - right and left cheek - Looking for broken capillaries, sensitivity, barrier function and under surface congestionSmoking, sinus sufferers, any type of cough or chest ailment may experience problems in this area. Ask about work environment, pollution and chemical exposure.ZONES 6 and 8 – right and left eye- Looking for milia, fine lines, puffiness and dark circles, irritation (allergies) on the eyelid.Milia around the outer eye area can be caused by certain make-up that contains comedogenic ingredients, such as synthetic colors and eye shadows that glitter or have a high shine. What are they removing eye make-up with? Mineral oil, Vaseline? They may also wear eyeglasses, which rub on their eye orbit. Dark circles can be hereditary.
173 the zones Zone 7 – Upper lip area: congestion and comedones Zones 11 & 13 – Jaw line area: breakouts, under surface congestionZONE 7 – nose & upper lip Looking and feeling for congestion and broken capillaries - This Zone tends to have the most congestion of all due to the excess of sebum production in this area. Comedones along the lip line will indicate that lipstick or lip liners with comedogenic ingredients (artificial color), are being used by your client.ZONES 11 & 13 – right and left side of chin –Look and feel for under the surface congestion and breakoutsUnder the surface congestion can be due to not cleansing all the way down to the jaw-line and leaving residue of make-up and cleanser in this zone. Congestion and blemishes can also be hormonal as with the upper lip in Zone 7.
174 the zones Zone 12 – Chin: Zone 14 – Neck: breakouts, micro- comedones breakouts, pigmentationZONE 12- chin – Look and feel for under the surface congestion, microcomedones and breakouts -The front of the chin will often have congestion particularly microcomedones, this is common on all of us.ZONE 14 – neck and chest area - Looking for blemishes, pigmentation and signs of aging. Blemishes in this area are an indication of high stress levels in the client. Pigmentation is an indication of photosensitivity to fragrance in the past and not taking their sun products down onto the neck and chest area, which is commonly always exposed to the sun even in winter in hot climates. This is the first zone to really show signs of aging on a woman.
175 Workshop – option 1 - break students up into groups, give each group several zones with possible conditions that occur, have them prescribe the correct cleanser, exfoliant, toner and moisturizer for that condition. Option 2 – students partner up, face map each other fill out prescription for partner..You are now ready to begin your workshop. Be sure to demonstrate the technique on a model so that students have a good idea of how to begin. They will be quite eager and may not recognize everything they see, but it is good practice for them.Tips : Client’ s initial visit: First time clients will need to know the benefits of what you are doing, be sure to explain this to students during your demonstration.What they should do on Subsequent visitsStudent should review the client’s consultation card.Study The Face Mapping® skin analysis prescription sheet for the areas of concern during the last visit, what products were recommended and which of these were purchased or sampled. Ask the client for feedback in regards to using the products and samples provided. Check there are no changes on their consultation card before progressing with the treatment. Proceed with the treatment as before and when you get to the Face Mapping® skin analysis stage of the treatment, refer to the previously completed face map, see if there are improvements in the condition of their skin since the last visit and make notes on a new face map. This will take 5-7minutes during these subsequent visits. The extra time available can be spent on extractions or massage part of the treatment. When reviewing the face map with the client at the end of the treatment, use both the old and new maps to show improvements or new conditions and concerns.Complete the new face map with new products and give to your client, staple this carbon to the consultation. You can keep the old Face Map as a reference to the skin’s improvement.Instructor: This helps teach students the value of maintaining records and updating them each time the client comes in. The clients consultation card and prescription sheet should always be checked by the instructor before it is filed by the student. Once you have completed this segment you will move into the retail segment.let’s play!

177 “owning” the treatment In order to become great at whatwe do, we must ask ourselves:How well am I doing?Do I feel confident as I work?What are my strengths during the treatment?Am I following the protocol for the core treatment?Instructor, this may be a good time to get verbal feedback from your students on how well they feel they are doing as opposed to your visual observations. Ask yourself; would I want to receive a treatment from my students? Everyone learns at a different pace, some will have a natural ability to grasp things quickly, others will lag behind or need more practice… this is an opportunity to let them be frank and enjoy the open discussion without being critiqued on an actual treatment.Allow 5-10 minutes for this section. Listen as they speak among themselves, you will probably be surprised at some of the comments.
