With the advances in skin treatment services, rejuvenation modalities and cosmetic formulations, skin therapists now need to know even more about skin physiology and know at a biological level, exactly what the modern treatments are doing to skin and how they change and improve skin. To understand the action of a modality, the therapist of today must comprehend, and apply all that is known about the wound healing processes of skin. The wound healing process can then be applied to the action of non ablative modalities such as iontophoresis, dermal needling, photo modulation, ultra sound, and intense pulsed light. The ablative actions of cosmetic surgery and laser can also be included.
