The International Dermal Institute Introduces New Class on Acne

The International Dermal Institute The International Dermal Institute (IDI) is now offering a new class, Skin Series: Acne, to educate professional skin therapists about the most recent research on treating acne. Acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S. that affects up to 60 million Americans each year. “In a marketplace flooded with treatments, products, and advice, professional skin therapists need to be armed with facts and more importantly be able to deliver results,” says Heather Hickman, senior director of U.S. education at IDI and Dermalogica. “Skin Series: Acne explores the most recent discoveries in the pathogenesis of acne, along with theories making headlines such as diet and the highly investigated gut-skin connection.”

In this ongoing half-day workshop offered from 10 am to 1 pm for $55 at IDI locations, skin therapists will go through all four factors involved with acne pathogenesis in extensive detail at a cellular and biological level. Therapists will also learn about medical treatment options and the benefits of non-invasive techniques and alternative therapies such as probiotics and topical and oral medicationsin treating acne-prone skin. Skin therapists will leave the workshop feeling confident and knowledgeable to help achieve better results for their clients.
