Description:

Chronic Diseases of the Skin: A Handbook for the Aesthetician is designed to offer the aesthetician with the tools needed to work with clients who present with unfamiliar or unusual skin lesions. This book addresses the common and not-so-common diseases and disorders that are seen on the skin, what they look like, and what to do about them. With the aid of photographs, descriptions, and illustrations, this book will help the clinician to know what they are looking at and what recommended action should be taken. It offers advice on how to avoid giving medical advice and medical diagnosis, and aides in understanding the common course of a disease, what to expect, treatment of the disease, and client prognosis. In addition, this handbook outlines the common course of a disease, what to expect, treatment of the disease, and client prognosis.
