In order to effectively administer and formulate skin care treatments, one must first understand the function and structure of the skin. Physiology of the Skin, 3rd Edition provides this information and addresses the biochemistry and free radical damage that changes young skin into old skin, with a specific focus on both extrinsic and intrinsic issues. This volume also provides an understanding of skin care products and their utilization in maintaining healthy skin. Disease states, including acne, eczema, photodamage, psoriasis and more, are discussed. Also, the new topical, injectable, and device products for skin rejuvenation are presented to build on the basics of skin physiology.

This latest edition takes the reader on a learning journey beginning with the formation of skin, moving on through the onset of puberty and adolescent issues, and finally discussing maturity and issues pertaining to perimenopausal and menopausal skin. Topics include:

Skin structure
Skin function and biochemistry
Skin needs in disease states and maturity
Photoaging mechanisms and sun protection
Cosmeceuticals and procedures for aging skin

Review:

If you are a skin care professional and you do NOT have AND use this Skin Bible, do yourself a favor: BUY it, READ it, learn what no school can teach you. Visionary. --Suze Vega - review on publisher site

Physiology of the Skin is a must-have for anyone in the cosmetic field, from estheticians to R&D specialists, as well as anyone involved in the product development or marketing aspects of skin care products. Pugliese and Draelos describe the structure and function of the skin and how it is affected at different stages by both environmental aggressors and cosmeceutical treatments. Estheticians can benefit from this book because of its in-depth scientific perspective, not usually taught in esthetics courses. Other cosmetics industry professionals can benefit because the more that we understand about how products affect the skin, the more we can target skin conditions that are of concern, and ultimately create truly efficacious products. --Tracy Wray, L.E, Director of Sales & Marketing, B&R Products, Inc.

A must-read book! Great investment. This is my fourth book from Alluredbooks and I will buy more. After reading this book, I am designing more effective and efficient treatments for my clients. I am also making better decisions on product and equipment purchasing for my practice. Knowledge from this book saved me several thousand dollars in equipment purchases. --Natalya Vasilev, Massage Therapist, Aesthetician, Certified Acne Expert
