The Real Drivers of Aging, Acne and Skin Disease

For years, skincare professionals have been operating from a common understanding of the drivers of skin aging, acne and other diseases or conditions. However, research continually shows that the answers are more complicated than originally thought. Looking beyond ultraviolet radiation, environmental factors such as pollution, harsh climates and irritants also play a major role in driving what we ultimately see as skin aging, sensitive skin and other skin conditions as well. Additionally, research is also finding new causalities behind what is driving other skin concerns such as acne and hyperpigmentation. The goal of this workshop is to uncover how all of these factors affect the skin, how damage can be reversed, and provide tangible tools that a skincare professional can implement in-office to provide better results for your patients.
