UNDERSTANDING SKIN – THE FACTS ABOUT SKINCARE

UNDERSTANDING SKIN – THE FACTS ABOUT SKINCARE

AUTHOR: AMBER DANSON

COMPANY: ADVANCED SKINCARE CHELTENHAM

LINK: AESTECH TRAINER

Our skin has two main modes; Attack and Recovery and these are activated and controlled by our Circadian Rhythm or Body Clock.

During the day, our largest organ, skin, is in ‘attack’ mode. Actively fighting off invaders like pollution and UV light whilst defending against and neutralising unstable molecules. It works to bind moisture and fight bacteria and viruses that can penetrate the skins barrier. The water and lipid system work to eliminate toxins and the acid mantle is responsible for differentiating between friendly and harmful microorganisms!

Also add temperature control, oil regulation and immune response and the skin is one hell of a warrior during the day!

At night, the skin shifts into DNA repair, cellular detox and cell production mode.

This regeneration phase actually speeds up biological processes up to 3 times faster and around 9 p.m., our skin starts to wind down, too. Melatonin is a hormone that is responsible for sleep and drowsiness. Between the hours of 9 – 11pm, the body begins to release it, enhancing the feeling of tiredness as well

As boosting our skins healing abilities. Now during this “prelude” to sleep, the increase in Melatonin means that the skin is more able to absorb topical treatments and DNA repair is boosted. Then once asleep and melatonin is at its highest level, it works to counteract damage to the skin during the day from aggressors like UV, pollution and free radicals!

So as you can see, the skin has different requirements based on different modes. It is often why certain actives and products are recommended for different times of day. We want to be supporting our skins natural responses when correcting issues and working with our skin, not against it!

This is why you will often see different serums or moisturiser recommendations; your Aesthetician wants you to be using the correct products for your skin dependant on the time of the day!

Hifu Machines

SO YOU THINK YOU KNOW YOUR HIFU?

SO YOU THINK YOU KNOW YOUR HIFU?

EVER WONDERED WHY YOUR HIFU DOESN’T GET THE RESULTS YOUR WANT? EVER WONDERED WHY YOUR CLIENTS END UP LOOKING MORE GAUNT AFTER TREATMENT? EVER WONDERED WHY SOME HIFU’S RETAIL IN EXCESS OF £8,000 YET YOU CAN PURCHASE OTHERS FOR UNDER £3,000? IS THERE REALLY A DIFFERENCE? THE ANSWER IS YES!

READ THIS ARTICLE ON HI INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND SO THAT YOUR CLIENTS GET AMAZING RESULTS, FIRST TIME, EVERYTIME – AS IT WAS INTENDED.

WHAT IS HIFU?

Hi Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a is a non-invasive therapeutic, thermal technique that uses non-ionizing ultrasonic sound waves to heat tissue. HIFU can be used to increase the blood flow or lymph to organs through ablation, cavitation, thermal coagulation or implosion and it can be focused to destroy tissue, such as tumors or cataracts in patients.

The technology which is similar to ultrasonic imaging, uses ultrasonic waves – although in the case of HIfu – at lower continuous frequencies, to achieve the necessary thermal doses. However, pulsed waves may also be used if mechanical rather than thermal damage is desired. Acoustic lenses, transducers or phased arrays are often used to achieve the necessary intensity at the target tissue without damaging the surrounding tissue.

HIFU, although relatively new to the cosmetic arena, was first discovered back in the early 1940s with extensive important early work performed in the 1950s and 1960s on its efficacy. However until recently, clinical trials of HIFU for ablation were few (although significant work in hyperthermia was performed with ultrasonic heating), until recent advances in ultrasound technology arose, which has ultimately led to further trials on the ablation of tumors in the NHS and medical arenas.

Since the early 2000’s HIFU has been investigated for its benefits in cosmetics, namely to reduce vaginal laxity and to aid both face and body skin tightening. As clinical trials are few and far between, the safety and effectiveness of these devices and techniques have previously been disputed however in 2018, the NHS recognised HIFU as an effective method for vaginal tightening and moreover, a beneficial option for the treatment of incontinence.

At present, HIFU is not available on the NHS for cosmetic purposes, for vaginal rejuvenation or incontinence correction, however clinical trials are currently underway.

HOW DOES HIFU WORK?

HIFU transmits energy in the form of acoustic (sound) waves into specific targeted area, deep within the tissue, without causing any damage to surrounding cells. The energy is absorbed by the tissue creating heat, causing the temperature to rise to between 65-85 degrees which consequently destroys the cells through a process called coagulative necrosis. Higher temperatures are avoided to prevent the boiling of liquids inside the tissue. Coagulative necrosis is a form of cell death whereby specific trauma causes hypoxia (a lack of oxygen) and important nutrients reaching the cell which preludes in its death. Owing to the nature of the necrosis, the dead tissue is preserved for up to 7-days as the injury is believed to denature structural proteins as well as lysosomal enzymes thus blocking the proteolysis (digestion) of damaged cells. The lack of lysosomal enzymes allows it to maintain the coagulated morphology for some time which increases the likelihood of cell regeneration. In necrosis, if enough viable cell framework is present around the affected area, regeneration will occur. This is especially important in the formation of collagen and elastin within skin tissue as HIFU has the ability to produce 1000X more collagen, than microneedling alone.

Each sonication (individual ultrasound energy deposition) treats a precisely defined portion of the targeted tissue, thus multiple sonications are used to create volume of treated tissue. The extent of tissue damage occurs as a function of both the exact temperature to which the tissue is heated and the duration of exposure – this is called the ‘thermal dose’.

At high enough acoustic intensities, cavitation can occur. Cavitation is where microbubbles are formed around the ultrasonic field which oscillate, grow and then eventually implode (internal transient cavitation). This destroys fat cells by creating shock waves which mechanically alter the surrounding tissue. Cavitation can be unpredictable which is why it has been previously avoided in clinical applications however new technology has managed to control the delivery of heat thus lowering the temperature at which cavitation occurs.

THE MECHANICS EXPLAINED

The successful delivery of HIFU is subject to a number of variables namely distance, focus, intensity, resistance and absorption. The delivery of HIFU for cosmetic usage is focused through transducers which are curved to focus the waves at specific points. The power or intensity (joules) applied relates to the force at which the energy is delivered. The temperature achieved is proportional to the intensity applied and the area over which the ultrasound beam is spread – IE increasing energy and decreasing the beam width will create a rapid temperature rise at the focus point.

HIFU machines are manufactured specifically to reduce resistance, maximise focus, offer variable intensity and thus temperature absorption as well as deliver set depths, to achieve maximum rejuvenation effects. During production, the machines are developed to maximise the energy output, allowing temperatures to achieve the desired 65 degree benchmark through the distribution of waves. This is achieved by the degree of curve in the transducer as well as the internal power mechanisms of the machine. The machine is then set at various energy outputs against ideal parameters. Failure to match the correct parameters leads to insufficient energy production, an increase in resistance and a reduction in temperature, resulting in little to no treatment effect. HIFU machines post-production are tested to ensure they are calibrated to attain the desired outcome at each focal point. Without this testing, temperatures in excess of 85 degrees can be obtained, thus triggering cell implosion or internal cavitation resulting in non-regenerative cell death. This leads to a reduction in collagen and elastin and can destroy fat pads underneath the SMAS and dermal layers leading to ‘hollowing’ of the facial regions. It is for this reason why Medically Graded equipment is both more reliable and more effective as more stringent testing, manufacturing regulation and accuracy is applied.

THE KNOWLEDGE

Owning a medically graded HIFU is only part of the process, understanding the basic principles of energy distribution and wave focus is absolute key to achieving the desired results. HIFU is a variable energy which can be manipulated by the professional to attain different outcomes, therefore without a wide and coherent understanding of the mechanics of HIFU, unwanted reactions will inevitably occur.

FERN ANSELL – COURSE OPERATIONS EXECUTIVE

FERN ANSELL – COURSE OPERATIONS EXECUTIVE

Hi my name is Fern and as stated above I am course operations executive. My role here at Aestech is one that I am incredibly proud to have achieved and one that both consistently and effectively fulfils not only myself as an individual but the skill set that I have worked hard to acquire over my life time.  

My start into this industry was an unexpected one and only began to take form whilst studying both business and sociology A levels and working part time in a number of voluntary retail stores. Being able to combine knowledge of both the industry and the drive behind the cycle of supply and demand definitely helped me to progress in my status and effectively made clear what i valued the most, not only as an employee but as a consumer of goods myself. 

However it was my passion for both beauty and aesthetics that brought to me this role at AESTECH. Their strong sense of community and their message of looking to build relationships with consumers was one that really appealed to me, especially with it being at the forefront of their approach. Having the opportunity to be not only and employee but an advocate for Aestech is a great honour and I am incredibly excited to continue raising their great reputation in both the beauty and medical world.

EPIDERMODYSPLASIA VERRUCIFORMIS – TREE MAN DISEASE A RARE DEBILITATING SKIN DISEASE – THE FACTS

EPIDERMODYSPLASIA VERRUCIFORMIS – TREE MAN DISEASE A RARE DEBILITATING SKIN DISEASE – THE FACTS

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV), also known as treeman syndrome, is an extremely rare autosomal recessive. hereditary skin disorder associated with a high risk of skin cancer. It is characterized by abnormal susceptibility to human papillomaviruses (HPVs) of the skin. The resulting uncontrolled HPV infections result in the growth of scaly macules and papules, particularly on the hands and feet. It is typically associated with HPV types 5 and 8, which are found in about 80% of the normal population as asymptomatic infections, although other types may also contribute.

The condition usually has an onset of between the ages of one and 20, but can occasionally present in middle age. The condition is also known as Lewandowsky–Lutz dysplasia, named after the physicians who first documented it, Felix Lewandowsky and Wilhelm Lutz.

Signs and symptoms

Clinical diagnostic features are lifelong eruptions of pityriasis versicolor-like macules, flat wart-like papules, one to many cutaneous horn-like lesions, and development of cutaneous carcinomas.

Patients present with flat, slightly scaly, red-brown macules on the face, neck, and body, recurring especially around the penial area, or verruca-like papillomatous lesions, seborrheic keratosis-like lesions, and pinkish-red plane papules on the hands, upper and lower extremities, and face. The initial form of EV presents with only flat, wart-like lesions over the body, whereas the malignant form shows a higher rate of polymorphic skin lesions and development of multiple cutaneous tumors.

Generally, cutaneous lesions are spread over the body, but some cases have only a few lesions which are limited to one extremity.

Genetics

The cause of the condition is an inactivating PH mutation in either the EVER1 or EVER2 genes, which are located adjacent to one another on chromosome 17. These genes play a role in regulating the distribution of zinc in the cell nuclei. Zinc is a necessary co-factor for many viral proteins, and the activity of EVER1/EVER2 complex appears to restrict the access of viral proteins to cellular zinc stores, limiting their growth.

Other genes have also rarely been associated with this condition. These include the ras homolog gene family member H.

Treatment

No curative treatment against EV has been found yet. Several treatments have been suggested, and acitretin 0.5–1 mg/day for 6 months’ duration is the most effective treatment owing to anti-proliferative and differentiation-inducing effects.

Interferons can also be used effectively together with retinoids.

Cimetidine was reported to be effective because of its depressing mitogen-induced lymphocyte proliferation and regulatory T cell activity features. A report by Oliveira et al.showed that cimetidine was ineffective. Hayashi et al. applied topical calcipoTriol to a patient with a successful result.

As mentioned, various treatment methods are offered against EV; however, most importantly, education of the patient, early diagnosis, and excision of the tumoral lesions take preference to prevent the development of cutaneous tumors.

  1. DEBILITATING ILLNESS
  2. NO KNOWN CURE
  3. CONTROLLED THROUGH MINOR SURGERY AT EARLY ONSET
