In the growth of Naturopathic Aesthetics, we are fortunate to have access to a wide amount of studies, research reviews, and even textbooks covering relevant topics such as cosmeceuticals, nutrition, lifestyle modifications, and even acupuncture. Having said that, despite this plethora of therapeutic options, the Naturopathic Doctor looking to integrate an aesthetics component into their practice requires a place to start, especially from the viewpoint of assessing common aesthetic concerns. As such, the major goal for this course is to explore key components of aesthetic assessment, evaluation, and methods to better measure outcomes in the achievement of our patient’s cosmetic goals.
We will review tools you can use in the building of your own preferred assessment approach. Some of the key assessment tools we will review include visual photo-numeric scales used to evaluate severity of wrinkling across specific facial locations; tips on how to take optimal before and after cosmetic clinical photographs; assessment for skin sensitivity; key aspects in assessing periorbital cosmetic concerns, including under-eye darkening; and an introduction to a questionnaire designed to more fully evaluate and determine a patient’s skin type, from which more individualized topical, lifestyle, and other treatment options can be made.
In addition, included with this course is a fully customizable sample Naturopathic Aesthetics Assessment form. This form blends key elements from a standard aesthetics assessment with many of the key tools explored throughout this course. It is designed for you to adapt and integrate into your personal aesthetics practice.
