In the first stage of the Five-Star Method, Nerida Joy explains why skin analysis is the foundation of a successful treatment regimen. You’ll learn the basics of the technique, see her in action performing an inch-by-inch skin analysis, and hear her explain not only why it is so important, but also how it sets your treatments up for success with your client.

Having the knowledge and confidence to incorporate skin analysis into your own practice will help you determine whether you’re dealing with acne that is hormonal or food-related, or if your client has sensitive skin, surface dryness or inflammation – all of which is essential to customizing every facial you do so that you can get the best results for your clients.

This complete course includes video lessons, sample clips, and downloadable assets. The Five Star Method Courses are all provided to you in a digital format. After purchase you may begin the course immediately.
