Skin Inc.'s Face & Body spa expo and conference has partnered with IMPACT Melanoma to bring its Skinny on Skin certification class to the Face & Body Southeast.

This hour-and-a-half class offers vital information where spa and salon professionals will learn to identify early warning signs of skin cancer. In this class, attendees will learn:

  • How to screen for suspicious moles while performing common skin care or salon services
  • Gain tips on how to talk to clients about possible findings
  • Learn about the hard-to-see areas for melanoma, such as the neck and scalp

“The Skinny on Skin is an educational program focused on teaching beauty industry professionals how to spot suspicious-looking lesions on a client. We’ve been running this training for years and have literally saved lives with it. Attendees learn critical information that allows them to become an advocate and a resource for their clients. Imagine being certified to save a life,” said Meghan Rothschild, of IMPACT Melanoma.
