Both conditions require medical attention and management to ensure the client's well-being and to address any potential risks or complications. Therefore, seeking medical advice is the appropriate course of action for this client.

    Facial growth is sometimes experienced during:

    • A.

      Puberty

    • B.

      Childhood

    • C.

      Pregnancy

    • D.

      Illness

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Puberty
    C. Pregnancy
    Explanation
    During puberty, there is a significant increase in hormone production, including growth hormones, which can lead to facial growth. This is a natural process that occurs as the body goes through physical changes and matures into adulthood. Pregnancy is another time when hormonal changes occur, including an increase in estrogen and progesterone levels. These hormonal changes can also lead to facial growth, such as the development of a fuller face or the appearance of a pregnancy glow.

    Male pattern hair growth can sometimes be caused by:

    • A.

      Illness

    • B.

      Puberty

    • C.

      Polycystic ovaries

    Correct Answer
    C. Polycystic ovaries
    Explanation
    Polycystic ovaries is a condition that affects women, but it can also cause male pattern hair growth in some cases. This condition is characterized by hormonal imbalances, specifically an excess of androgens (male hormones) in the body. These androgens can lead to the development of male-pattern hair growth, such as facial hair or a receding hairline, in both men and women. Therefore, polycystic ovaries is a possible cause of male pattern hair growth.

    Anorexia can sometimes cause Amenorrhea which is increased growth of vellus hair on the face, trunk, and arms, wasting of muscles.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by severe restriction of food intake, leading to significant weight loss. Amenorrhea, the absence of menstrual periods, is a common symptom experienced by individuals with anorexia. Hormonal imbalances caused by malnutrition can disrupt the normal menstrual cycle. In addition to amenorrhea, anorexia can also lead to the growth of vellus hair, which is fine, light-colored hair, on the face, trunk, and arms. This is known as lanugo and is the body's attempt to keep warm due to lack of body fat. Anorexia can also result in muscle wasting due to the body breaking down muscle tissue for energy.

    Socially acceptable, male-pattern, and excessive hair growth are known as?

    • A.

      Hirsuitism

    • B.

      Superfleous

    • C.

      Hormonal

    • D.

      Hypertrichosis

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Hirsuitism
    B. Superfleous
    D. Hypertrichosis
    Explanation
    Hirsutism, Superfleous, and Hypertrichosis are all terms used to describe socially acceptable, male-pattern, and excessive hair growth. Hirsutism specifically refers to excessive hair growth in women in areas where men typically grow hair. Superfleous means unnecessary or extra, suggesting that the hair growth is not needed or desired. Hypertrichosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive hair growth on any part of the body. All three terms describe the same phenomenon of abnormal hair growth, but may be used in different contexts or with slightly different connotations.

    The following conditions would prevent epilation treatment:

    • A.

      Scar tissue

    • B.

      Hepatitis

    • C.

      Skin infection

    • D.

      Heart problems - pacemaker

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Hepatitis
    C. Skin infection
    D. Heart problems - pacemaker
    Explanation
    Epilation treatment involves the removal of hair from the roots, typically using methods like waxing or laser. Scar tissue can interfere with the process as it may make it difficult to remove hair effectively. Hepatitis is a viral infection that affects the liver, and individuals with this condition may have weakened immune systems, making them more susceptible to complications during the treatment. Skin infections can also pose risks as they may worsen or spread due to the procedure. Heart problems, specifically having a pacemaker, can be a contraindication for epilation treatment as it involves the use of electrical currents that may interfere with the functioning of the pacemaker.

    Shallow insertion of the epilation needle may cause 'blanching.'

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Shallow insertion of the epilation needle may cause 'blanching' because when the needle is inserted too shallowly, it may not reach the appropriate depth to effectively remove the hair follicle. This can result in the hair not being fully extracted, leading to blanching or whitening of the hair instead of complete removal.

    Which size needle should you use when working on fine hairs?

    • A.

      0.3

    • B.

      0.4

    • C.

      0.5

    • D.

      0.6

    Correct Answer
    A. 0.3
    Explanation
    When working on fine hairs, it is recommended to use a smaller needle size in order to achieve more precise and delicate results. The size 0.3 needle would be the most suitable option for this purpose, as it is the smallest size listed. Using a larger needle size may cause damage or be too harsh on the fine hairs.

    The drier the Epidermis the more likely a galvanic burn is likely to appear.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a galvanic burn is more likely to occur when the epidermis is moist, not dry. Galvanic burns are caused by a flow of electric current between two different metals on the skin's surface, and moisture helps to facilitate this flow. Therefore, if the epidermis is dry, the likelihood of a galvanic burn occurring is actually reduced.

    What would you use at the end of the treatment to calm redness?

    • A.

      Anaphoresis

    • B.

      Cataphoresis

    • C.

      Iontopherisis

    Correct Answer
    B. Cataphoresis
    Explanation
    Cataphoresis would be used at the end of the treatment to calm redness. Cataphoresis is a technique that uses a positive electrode to deliver a calming solution into the skin. This can help to reduce inflammation and redness, providing a soothing effect after a treatment. Anaphoresis and iontophoresis are not suitable for calming redness at the end of a treatment. Anaphoresis is a technique that uses a negative electrode to remove impurities from the skin, while iontophoresis uses an electric current to deliver medication into the skin.
