    • C.

      Living bacteria

    • D.

      Red blood cells   

    Correct Answer
    B. Dead white blood cells
    Explanation
    The fluid inside a pustule, known as pus, is largely made up of dead white blood cells. Pus is formed as a result of the immune system's response to infection or inflammation. White blood cells, specifically neutrophils, are the first responders to an infection and they accumulate at the site to fight off the invading bacteria. As they die in the process, they release enzymes that break down tissue and form pus. Therefore, dead white blood cells are the main component of pus.

    Correct Answer
    C. Open comedo
    Explanation
    The technical term for a blackhead is an open comedo. A blackhead is a type of acne lesion that occurs when a hair follicle becomes clogged with oil and dead skin cells. In an open comedo, the clogged pore remains open to the surface, allowing the trapped material to oxidize and turn black. This is in contrast to a closed comedo, also known as a whitehead, where the pore is closed and the trapped material does not oxidize. "Ostium" and "couperose" are not the correct technical terms for a blackhead.

    • C.

      15

    • D.

      8

    Correct Answer
    C. 15
    Explanation
    An SPF of 15 or higher is considered to be adequate strength for daily use because it provides a moderate level of protection against the sun's harmful UVB rays. SPF 15 blocks about 93% of UVB rays, while higher SPFs provide slightly more protection. However, it's important to note that SPF only measures protection against UVB rays and not UVA rays, which can also cause skin damage. Therefore, it's recommended to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays for optimal sun protection.

    A ______ point is the area over a muscle where pressure or stimulation causes a contraction?

    • A.

      Connective

    • B.

      Motor

    • C.

      Vascular

Emollients are commonly used in skincare products such as moisturizers, creams, and lotions to provide a smooth and soft texture to the skin. They are especially beneficial for individuals with dry or sensitive skin, as they help to replenish and protect the skin's natural moisture barrier.

    The use of isotretinoin, an oral cystic acne medication, causes what side effect?

    • A.

      Hardening of the skin 

    • B.

      Lightening of the skin

    • C.

      Peeling of the skin

    • D.

      Thinning of the skin

    Correct Answer
    D. Thinning of the skin
    Explanation
    Isotretinoin is known to cause thinning of the skin as a side effect. This medication is commonly used to treat severe cystic acne and works by reducing the production of oil in the skin. Thinning of the skin occurs because isotretinoin decreases the production of collagen, a protein that provides structure and thickness to the skin. As a result, the skin becomes more fragile and prone to injury, making it thinner and more susceptible to damage.

This process helps to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin. By using a handheld device, the crystals are sprayed onto the skin and then vacuumed away, leaving behind smoother and rejuvenated skin. This treatment is commonly used in skincare clinics and spas to address various skin concerns such as acne, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.

      Arthritis 

    • B.

      Hyperpigmentation 

    • C.

      A pacemaker

    • D.

      Moles

    Correct Answer
    C. A pacemaker
    Explanation
    Electrotherapy should never be administered to a client who has a pacemaker. This is because electrotherapy involves the use of electrical currents to stimulate muscles or nerves, and it can interfere with the functioning of a pacemaker. Pacemakers are electronic devices implanted in the body to regulate the heart's rhythm, and any external electrical currents can disrupt their proper functioning and potentially cause harm to the individual. Therefore, it is crucial to avoid administering electrotherapy to clients with pacemakers to ensure their safety and well-being.

    Cleansing milks are non-foaming. This means that they do not produce a lather or foam when applied to the skin. Instead, they have a creamy and smooth texture that helps to gently cleanse the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Non-foaming cleansers are often recommended for those with sensitive or dry skin, as they are less likely to cause irritation or dryness. They are also effective at removing dirt, makeup, and impurities from the skin, leaving it clean and refreshed.

    Correct Answer
    B. Mature skin
    Explanation
    Modelage masks are recommended for clients with mature skin because these masks are specifically designed to address the signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. They often contain ingredients like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which help to hydrate and plump the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Additionally, modelage masks provide a tightening effect on the skin, helping to lift and firm sagging areas. Overall, these masks help to rejuvenate and revitalize mature skin, leaving it looking more youthful and radiant.
