About our primary author-Florence Barrett-Hill
Florence Barrett-Hill CIDESCO, ITEC Dips
Independent Technical Educator & author to the Professional Aesthetics Industry
Florence Barrett-Hill is an internationally acclaimed dermal science educator, practitioner, researcher, and author with a vast experience covering all aspects of professional aesthetic therapy and paramedical skin care.
Florence’s special area of expertise is effective skin analysis and has written numerous books and developed many specialist training programs around that topic. During the late 1990’s, Florence began developing The Pastiche Method® of advanced skin analysis; a progressive and effective technique to more accurately determine skin types and skin conditions. The method focuses on the cause of skin conditions to appropriately target interventions as opposed to treating the symptoms only.
Today, the method has been adopted or assimilated in to many skin diagnostic procedures practiced by skin care professionals around the world, and is an integral part of curriculums of progressive aesthetics and skin care colleges.
Florence has trained both generic and brand specific philosophies, understanding the wide range of treatment modalities, and their place in the industry. With wide experience from owning and operating clinics, through to paramedical technical experience in the post operative care of burns survivors and plastic surgery patients and the formulation of skin care products, Florence is a uniquely talented industry practitioner who intimately knows her subject and is passionate about continually raising the standards of professional beauty therapy and skin care.
