THE ACNE AND ROSACEA SUMMIT It has been estimated that over 16 million individuals in the United States are impacted by the symptomatology of rosacea and over 50 million experience numerous multiplex symptoms involving acne on both the face and body- identifying acne as the most common skin disease. Statistics forecast that by 2028, the acne treatment market is set to garner sales at more than 12.57 billion dollars. Acne and rosacea commonly feature distinguishable hallmarks including inflammation, irritation, sensitivity, and skin textural changes often resulting in scarring and potential disfigurement. Although there have been numerous theories presented regarding the development of acne scars, and several approaches for treatment, a concise understanding as to acne scarring and repair in all skin types and ethnicities is not fully understood.
The socioeconomic impact of acne scarring is globally observed for its influence on self-esteem and potential disfigurement and requires a multi-faceted approach in its management. Psychodermatology involves the evaluation of psychosocial implications of both these conditions with the debilitating impact including emotional distress, low self-esteem and the socioeconomic impact of these global skin conditions affecting men, women, and teens .The pathobiology of acne and rosacea present well-defined characteristics from a clinical and visual perspective however, often it is what is not apparent that can create complicated manifestations of both these conditions. The various phases of inflammation and sensitivity present important details to provide insight into understanding the complexities of these disorders.
The Scientific Esthetics Symposium 2023 gives prominence to these paradoxical skin conditions and the complexity involving product selection, treatment, and management for the esthetician. The physiology and identification of the various types of acne and rosacea are our target objectives for this symposium. Our focus is to deliver scientific research and contemporary concepts regarding these conditions to offer new perspectives, increased knowledge, your approach, and treatment considerations.
Join us for this non-product-aligned unprecedented esthetic event offering world-class education on two of the most perplexing skin concerns today in our industry.
SPECIAL EXCLUSIVE BONUS!

4:30- 6:00 PM - KRIS CAMPBELL - LE & GARRETT CAMPBELL -RA - UNITED STATES
FUELING THE FIRE- INGREDIENT ANTAGONISTS IMPACTING ROSACEA & SENSITIVE SKIN: One of the common accompanying symptoms of both acne and rosacea is skin sensitivity. A key determinant in skin sensitivity is the physiology and “barrier status” of the stratum corneum involving TEWL and lipids. Continual exposure to irritants and agents that disorient skin’s acid mantle, natural lipids and water content will increase vulnerability to sensitivity. Many individuals are susceptible to at least one common ingredient in skin care or cosmetic products, and the potential for irritation and sensitivity increases with those individuals with an impaired stratum corneum.Products may contain ingredients that may be either singly, or when combined with other products present the activity to classify as antagonist ingredients, and instigate immune response for redness, itching, dryness, stinging, irritation and in some individuals – edema. Haptens are electrophilic compounds in the body that elicit the skin’s immune response and potentiate allergic reactions. Haptens are <1kDa, and act as cutaneous allergens eliciting reactions on the skin. Low molecular weight ingredients may act as haptens and may be activated before the become a sensitizing antagonist. This lecture will explore some of the key aspects of skin sensitivity with rosacea and will describe both some of the most common and lesser-known cosmetic agents that may act as antagonists and give rise for the opportunity for skin sensitivity.

11:30-1:00- RENE´ SERBON - CORNEOTHERAPY EXPERT & SKIN THERAPIST - CANADA
ACNE CONCEPTS IN CORNEOTHERAPY - Acne is a complicated skin condition that's not just about the skin's secretions, texture, and color, but also involves hormonal factors. A range of conventional treatments have been used for acne, but it's now becoming increasingly evident that they're not always suitable for all skin types. In particular, individuals with sensitive lipid dry skin and poor corneocyte compaction may experience cellular inflammation and an overactive innate immune system- making it difficult to find effective treatments for their acne. Effective treatment for acne in lipid dry skin requires a different approach to that used for hyperactive oilier skin types. Hormonal imbalance is another factor that can contribute to acne, and where this is the case, one specific type of treatment, an anti-androgen that inhibits 5A reductase (an enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone) without blocking the androgen receptor, can be highly effective in treating acne. To overcome acne effectively, a tailored treatment plan that suits an individual's unique skin type and hormonal makeup should be considered. Acneic issues can have several underlying causes, so understanding the specifics of an individual's acne issue is key to finding a suitable treatment regimen.By understanding the cells and systems involved in the condition of acne and considering which ingredients we have available in our scope of practice to assist while rebuilding the skin barrier function with a corneotherapy approach, this class is excellent for compounding all your previous knowledge with new knowledge to open a different and effective approach to sustainable results for your clients suffering with acne.

ACNE & SKIN SIGNS IN CANCER THERAPIES: Various cancer therapies may present cutaneous reactions as a result of chemotherapy or radiation and other related oncology therapies. In the last decade many new developments regarding oncologic treatments have occurred, along with the development of numerous targeted and immune related agents. Several new mechanisms of activity from these therapies have brought about a totally new spectrum of dermatological presentations in conjunction with medications and cancer therapies. This lecture will discuss some of the associated skin signs that may occur as a result of oncology therapies including trans epidermal water loss, rashes, scaling, skin sensitivity and acne. Additionally, there has been recent research giving insight to the potential connections between the development of various cancers and acne. Morag will discuss some of the highlights from this recent research and identify the hallmarks of oncology skin signs estheticians should be familiar with.
2:00-3:00 - DR. KATERINA STEVENTON - MsC, PhD - ENGLAND
PSYCHODERMATOLOGY - COMPASSION & CARE: Psychodermatology addresses the interaction emotional stressors and the correlation to skin conditions and their severity. This class will provide insights as to the socioeconomic and phycological impact acne clients may face due to their chronic conditions. Acne vulgaris one of the most common skin conditions. The prevalence of adult acne is increasing, and “female acne” has become a distinct clinical entity. The degree of psychosocial impairment correlates with patient’s subjective assessment, not objective clinical severity of adult acne. The major emotional implications and its social consequences challenge the classical view of acne as something purely physiological or even trivial. Skincare recommendations and working with the cycle helps to alleviate the severity of the disease, the next step for a clinician in achieving successful outcomes is to guide self-management and work with patient’s emotional experiences.

THE RELATIONSHIP OF PHYTOCEUTICS IN IMPAIRED ACNE & ROSACEA DERMAMICROBIOME CONDITIONS: The skin microbiota can modulate the skin’s innate and adaptive immune system. The skin can also discriminate between harmless commensal microorganisms and harmful pathogenic microorganisms. Keratinocytes are continuously interacting with the colonizing microbiota through pattern recognition receptors (PRRs), such as Toll-like receptors (TLRs), mannose receptors and the NOD-like receptors. Melanocytes, also being dendritic cells, can act like antigen presenting cells (APC) through endocytosis and phagocytosis along with the secreting of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), cytokines and chemokines. AMPs can directly fight with bacteria, fungi, and enveloped viruses through a constant communication interplay among keratinocytes, immune cells and microorganisms that are invading. Many PhytoCuetics can be explored in terms of maintaining polydiverse nature of skin microbiota and microstatic and microcidal type of activity and adjuvant to enhancing AMP activity through topical and systemic applications.

THE PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF ROSACEA AND NEURODERMETIC SKIN: The etiology of rosacea inflammatory responses are subject to sensory neurological influences as well as vascular changes. Rosacea, its subtypes as well as neurodermetic skin tendencies all feature similar characteristics include inflammatory mediators that are main triggers in the onset of rosacea “flares”. Substances such as histamines, serotonin, and prostaglandins may be included as mediators in these cycles as well as chronic tissue damage caused by photo aging, leading to both vascular insufficiency and inflammatory rosacea. Lymphatics also play a role in this complex response network particularly in the presentation of advanced and papular-pustular rosacea. This lecture will outline the most distinguishable characteristics of chronic skin sensitivity, explain the pathway of neurodermitic skin, the etiologic presentations of rosacea, identify mediators and chronic tissue damage caused by photo aging that may lead to both vascular insufficiency and inflammatory rosacea. etiology of rosacea inflammatory responses are subject to sensory neurological influences as well as vascular changes.

TRUNCAL ACNE -UNDERSTANDING THE PHYSIOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT OF BODY ACNE: Truncal acne (back and body acne) is a common skin condition that may accompany facial acne, yet it remains a topic that is unresearched. Social interaction and self - esteem concerns often impact truncal acne sufferers due to disfigurement concerns form chronic inflammation and scarring. It is estimated that there is a 70-85% global lifetime prevalence surrounding the various types of truncal acne, and various type of body acne impact approximately 48-52% of individuals with facial acne. In many respects, truncal acne presents much of the same etiology as facial acne: follicular hyperkeratosis, Cutibacterium acne, and inflammation – however, more recent research has shown various physiological differences between the various types of body acne, as well as the etiology of truncal acne development. This lecture will present the various types of truncal acne, physiological and anatomical considerations, environmental, hormonal, and dietary influences, and will note standardized treatments and management for truncal acne. As truncal acne may instigate a great deal of inflammation and scarring – the hallmarks surrounding wound healing and scarring will also be discussed.
4:00-5:00- DR. YULIA BORYZCH - HD, MD - UKRAINE
THE MENOPAUSAL SHIFT - UNDERSTANDING ADULT ACNE: Adult female acne is defined as acne that affects women over the age of 25 and may persist continuously or intermittently from adolescence or manifest for the first time during transitional years of adulthood. As acne typically appears during adolescence and early adulthood - the onset of acne during the ages 30-50 can often be problematic and it may be triggered by multiple factors. These include hormonal imbalances, ultraviolet radiation, stress, diet, smoking, sleep disorders, cosmetics, medications, excessive skin washing, blood sugar imbalances, and endocrine disorders. Other considerations include the deficiency of the epidermal barrier function as the consequential increase in trans epidermal water loss may be responsible for the onset of the inflammatory cascade that contributes to the onset of acne. Dr. Borzykh will explore various transitional influences of hormones and key multiple aspects of the development of adult acne, along with a management overview.
5:00-6:30 - DR. ERIN MADIGAN-FLECK- NMD, LE,LEI -UNITEDS STATES
EXTERNAL INFLUENCES ON THE SKINS MICROBIOME: The skin is colonized by a vast terrain of microorganisms, bacteria, and to a lesser extent, fungi and viruses that comprise the ecological community of the human microbiome. The microbiome nexus places emphasis primarily on human health however, a broadened perspective also reflects the interaction between the microbiota and other external influences. As our primary interface with the external environment, the homeostasis of the skin’s microbiome is strongly influenced by lifestyle, host factors and the exposome. This formidable complex system is comprised of integrative microorganisms involving both the skin and the gut, each having essential protective functions against invading pathogens, mediating inflammatory conditions, and the modulation of the immune system. This unique symbiotic network provides cell to cell communications, integral lipid components and functions as a gateway between external and internal environments. This lecture will explore several intrinsic and extrinsic aspects of the skin’s microbiome, the microbiomes relationship with acne and rosacea and conditions that may present opportunities for skin dysbiosis.
