The foundational basics of skin your facialist NEEDS to know

A good skin consultation is how your facialist / skin therapist / aesthetician will create customised in clinic skin treatments for you 

An effective consultation requires a sound understanding of skin anatomy & physiology. The MSKIN PRO range contains ingredients & chemistry that works in conjunction with the physiological processes of your skin, we refer to this as “Bio mimetic” or “Skin identical” ingredients/actives.

To correctly prescribe MSKIN PRO you will need to identify which layer or structure in the skin is the site of the problem.

The Epidermis consists of five (5) layers

  1. Stratum Corneum
  2. Stratum Lucidium
  3. Stratum Granulosum
  4. Stratum Spinosum
  5. Stratum Basale

MSKIN PRO predominantly focus on

  1. Stratum Corneum: Corneocytes form the outer layer of the epidermis
  2. Stratum Spinosum: Melanosome transfer, Langerhan Cells.
  3. Stratum Basale: Melanocytes, Stem Cells.

The Dermis

  1. The Papillary & Reticular Dermis
    - Provides structure & strength
    - Capillaries & larger vessels deliver blood, oxygen and nutrients to stem cells & melanocytes.
  2. Fibroblasts: Responsible for collagen, elastin & glycosaminoglycans (GAGS) production. They require systemic Vitamin C to produce Collagen.
  3. Macrophages: large white blood cell that is an important part of our immune system.

The Subcutaneous Layer is the deepest layer, consists of Adipose tissue, larger vessels & about 5% of fibroblasts
