Most people are dissatisfied with some aspect of their appearance. However, some individuals are so distressed about the way they look that it interferes with their daily life. Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a severe and impairing disorder characterized by a preoccupation with an imagined or slight flaw in appearance. Although BDD has been described in research and literature for more than a century it remains an under recognized disorder.Objective:
Develop awareness from recent research finding that address the face and body perception. Understand and discuss how the perception of faces and bodies are integrated. How to recognize and address patients with BDDWeek 12
Dermal needling is the latest skin renewal technique to restore the healthy youthful appearance of your skin at a fraction of the cost and with minimal or zero downtime, in addition, the only treatment that respects all three main target cell types (keratinocyte, melanocyte, fibroblast).
Skin Needling is also one of the few skin therapies that are suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin, and which can be used to treat the fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and on the neck.
The concept of Skin Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibers as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro‐“injuries” in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, healthier, and younger looking skin.
Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport, Facial Anatomy, Physiology, Histology, Bacteriology, Cell Proteins, Proprietary AgentsObjective:

DMA stimulates your own body to produce new collagen. At a microscopic level, proliferated skin cells, such as fibroblasts, migrate to the point of injury and transform into collagen fibers, resulting in increased fiber strength and elasticity. You will learn how this technology facilitates natural repair and growth making the skin healthier and stronger.Week 16
