These flow charts follow the Pastiche Diagnostic Methodology (PDM) and are split into intrinsic and extrinsic categories, each group of factors comes with a possible event that will affect skins
structure and function. It is this extended thought process that helps you to understand why the skin is displaying specific skin conditions; because skin is a site of response to an event.
We have established that the consultation gathers a large amount of data that needs to be filtered into categories that will determine a quickly summarized result that the diagnostic technician can use confidently. By using the most commonly found causes and linking them across to cells and systems and skin conditions affected and by filtering with intrinsic and extrinsic factors, the Pastiche Diagnostic Flow charts are an excellent diagnostic tool.
