Any successful business has to keep an ear to the ground and remain one step ahead of competitors. Savvy professionals recognize an expanding market and develop the products and services to tap into it. For the aesthetician, that expanding market segment is the multi-ethnic clientele and the tool to help achieve success in this segment is Milady's Aesthetician Series: Treating Diverse Pigmentation. Building a successful career in aesthetics hinges on the ability to identify and treat the skin concerns of this diverse population. Treating Diverse Pigmentation teaches treatments for skin of color that include: the causes of aging and how it affects each race's unique facial anatomy; a guide through several different skin analysis classification systems; review studies analyzing the racial differences in the anatomy, physiology, and histology of pigmented skin; and case-by-case studies that help the reader recognize skin diseases and disorders common to people of color. The text was created for licensed aestheticians and other professionals working in skincare, including RNs and dermatologists, as well as students. Considering that the majority of the world's population is ethnically diverse, the aesthetic professional with an eye on the future will not hesitate to take advantage of Treating Diverse Pigmentation.

I purchased this book after attending a class with the author at a conference in Fla. As an instructor teaching skin care, I found her information to be beyond my expectations on the subject of diverse dischromia. After the class, I knew I had to have the book. I'm using it now to supplement my regular curriculum. This is a subject we deal with daily in Arizona. The book should be required reading for estheticians providing treatments to today's clients with blended ethnic backgrounds!
The areas where this book is not so good are really stupid. Sections on Indian treatments are just stuck in there with little or no explanation but the areas where this book is good at, they are really, really good. Mostly anatomy & physiology. Most books simply make a statement of what happens, while this book gets into the nitty gritty about HOW it happens.
Thank you, This book has met my needs and answered questions that I feel will improve my skills as a Licensed Esthetic Instructor. Licensed Esthetician, Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Spa Specialist and Holistic Aromatherapist
