This course provides an understanding of the fascinating topic of cell to cell communication of the skin, and how it is now a primary consideration during the development of topically applied skin care formulations and treatment modalities. The objectives of this lesson is to clarify of how and why cells in the skin communicate and the role of cellular communication in skin homeostasis; and where the regenerative potential of enhancing or inhibiting cell to cell communication plays an important role in effective and intelligent treatment modalities.
