Before the Party

From 10:15–11:45AM on Saturday, August 23, join AmSpa's Founder, Alex Thiersch, and associate general counsel, Renee Coover, as they present "So You Call Yourself a Medical Esthetician?" at the Business Summit during the Advanced Education Conference Program.

Unbeknownst to many skin care professionals, the term "medical esthetician" is often considered to be a violation of state law, and using it on your website or business card may lead to dire consequences. Although it has become commonplace and seems to show up everywhere, the term "medical esthetician" is, according to many state laws, misrepresentative, misleading and therefore, illegal. In this presentation, Thiersch and Coover will address the basics of medical esthetics law, advertising restrictions in the medical field and steps estheticians can take to protect themselves.

From 1:15–2:15PM on Saturday, August 23, join True U's Terri Wojak as she presents on "Acne Realities Exposed" during the Acne/Rosacea track during the Advanced Education Conference Program.

Acne is a frustrating condition for many clients, and they often seek out skin care professionals to get to the root of the problem. There is no single answer or miracle treatment for acne; it takes time and patience from the client—as well as the esthetician—to get the right system in place. Learn the vital questions to ask clients in order to uncover the underlying causes and triggers—such as hormone fluctuations and lifestyle choices—that are producing acne breakouts. Also, discover the truths and myths behind commonly used tools to treat acne, from over-the-counter products to medical treatments. Performing a thorough consultation and having in-depth knowledge of acne treatments will allow you to customize the perfect program to target each client's needs!
