Skin Consultation

How to prepare for your consultation?

 If you are coming to see us for a Free of Charge Laser Consultation we will need to assess the skin or area to be treated to determine the best treatment programme for you. It is important you notify us if you have a tan (real or fake) or have applied any moisturisers including tan in the past 3 weeks as these can affect your ability to have a test patch. Please call your clinic ahead of your appointment if you are unsure.

As part of your consultation, we will discuss any current medications you may be taking as some medicines may interfere with selected treatments. Please bring with you a list of any medicine you may be taking and the doses, so that we can tailor your treatment programme to your individual needs.

 If you are attending a Free of Charge Skin Concern Consultation we may need to remove your make-up (if applicable) Consultation allows us to thoroughly explain the treatment, to ensure you understand its advantages and any risks and allows us to assess your suitability for the treatment. It is also an opportunity for you to have a confidential discussion with your practitioner, enabling you both to ensure your goals are understood and achievable.

 If you are attending an Advanced Skin Consultation we use the Opatra Skin Analyzer used by cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical and skin care professionals. The skin is cleansed removing any makeup and the Opatra skin analysis is used to examine your skin in detail using complexion analysis which uses multi-spectral imaging to reveal damage and signs of ageing on and beneath the surface of the skin that is not visible to the human eye.  Details on bacteria, pore size, texture, UV Spots, sun damage, acne, wrinkles and hydration are all measured to grade your skin features relative to others of the same age and skin types. 

During the consultation, you are given expert advice on the results of this report, which includes details of your skin analysis, recommendations for treatment, and skin care options. Your skin data will then be used to put together an effective skin rejuvenation regime for your specific needs. The cost of this is £30 redeemable against skin care purchased on the day. 

If you are attending a Free of Charge Injectable Treatment Consultation with one of our medical team it is advisable to bring details of any previous injectable treatments you have had including; the treatment name, a product used and date of the treatment. If you wish to proceed with treatment on the same day as your consultation (providing you are suitable for treatment) please mention at the time of booking so additional time can be allocated. For the treatment we will need to remove your makeup, you may wish to bring it with you to re-apply afterwards (if applicable), alternatively, we are able to offer a mineral foundation to be applied afterwards.
