Hertfordshire to award first Skin Camouflage Course Accreditations

05.08.2005


The first accreditation for a Skin Camouflage course ever to be awarded by a university is soon be awarded by the University of Hertfordshire.



The course which started in April and ended last month attracted skin camouflage practitioners and individuals with skin disfigurements from all over the UK. Most of them were beauticians who wanted to gain formal qualifications in skin camouflage and to update their skills.

The course was developed by the University of Hertfordshire as a result of an approach from the Skin Camouflage Network which wanted the University to run it so that participants could be awarded academic qualifications for successful completion.


The course involved instructing participants on how to apply skin camouflage make-up to cover facial disfigurements or scars and allowed them to share good practice. The University of Hertfordshire was chosen to host it because of its knowledge of tissue viability and its familiarity with the counselling skins needed in such a sensitive field.

Madeleine Flanagan from the School of Continuing and Professional Development commented:

“We’re not just teaching people how to apply camouflage make-up, we’re also raising important psychological issues within a very delicate subject area and one which is often difficult for those affected to discuss openly. This work is providing insight into the specific needs of this client group and the skin camouflage practitioners who provide an invaluable and professional service”.

The next course will run in April 2006.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
