Introducing the Australasian Academy of Corneotherapy



derma aesthetics are proud to announce the launch of the Australasian Academy of Corneotherapy in Australia and New Zealand. The academy has been established to provide cutting edge Corneotherapy and skin education to all skin therapists, with the aim of advancing the level of in-depth skin health knowledge amongst the local industry.

Simone Vescio, Founder of the Australasian Academy of Corneotherapy says, “Over the past eight years we have pioneered the awareness and education of corneotherapy across Australia and New Zealand, and we’re thrilled to be opening up our education to the aesthetics industry in Australasia!”

Throughout 2020, the AAC will be holding series of Skin Extension Education Classes with the first classes having already opened their doors and been held in Sydney and Auckland in February.

“From 2020 we are opening up our educational classes, training and access to the latest information on corneotherapy to all therapists, no matter what their brand of choice may currently be. There was a lack of non-product aligned education in our local industries, and we’re proud to be filling this gap,” said Simone.

AAC Skin Extension Education 2020 - Class Schedule:
Tuesday, 17 March 2020 – Perth
Monday, 30 March 2020 – Melbourne
Monday, 18 May 2020 – Albury
Monday, 27 July 2020 – Brisbane
Monday, 2 November 2020 – Christchurch

“The AAC Skin Extension Education classes have been designed to deliver comprehensive education on some of the most important and complex subjects and skin conditions. Plus, there will also be time for Q&A and further learning from your peers and educator during the day,” said Simone.

Topics covered in each class include:
  1. Corneotherapeutic principles.
  2. Embryonic development; what’s involved in the embryonic development, including the embryonic stem cells, neural crest, central nervous system and how the development before we are born affects our skin.
  3. Perioral dermatitis; the inflammatory skin disorder and histamine as a leading cause. We will also look at the leading causes of perioral dermatitis and common considerations for this difficult skin condition.
  4. Skin microbiome; why it is so important to the health and function of our skin and what factors can affect our skin’s microbiome. We will also take a closer look at the microbiota that is commonly linked to acne.
  5. Melanogenesis; from UV & hormonally induced, to post inflammatory pigmentation. In this session we will look at the cause and effect on our skin.
  6. Sunscreen; chemical verses physical (a hot topic). This workshop will help to debunk the myths and confusion around which option is more appropriate.

This cost covers all comprehensive guides and training resources plus lunch & refreshments that attendees receive on the day of education.
