Why do I need a consultation?
‘What do I need?’
‘What would you do to my face?’
‘Which treatment do you think I should have?’
The answer is you do not NEED anything.
You do need to feel great and confident in yourself, and if you think I can help you with that, then let us start with a consultation.
I speak about consultations frequently but not sure I make it clear why they are so important.
An initial consultation has many parts. Firstly, it is essential that you feel I am the right person to help you. Sharing your information, concerns, fears and motivations is personal and it is important that you know, like and trust the person you are sharing this skin care journey with.
I will share with you what qualifies me to help you, there is no judgment and everything you share is confidential. This gives you the opportunity to discuss your reason for coming to see me.
Information is vital; the more I know about the motivation behind your visit, the more I can help. This could be you wanting to feel fabulous for your daughter’s wedding, or because you want your skin to be brighter. Whatever your reason, gives details to better plan the best timely treatment plan for you.
I can explain what is happening above and below the skin causing the concerns you have; this will make it easier for you to understand the reason for any treatment suggestions I make. I can also find out which skin care or treatments you have tried before and discuss your likes and dislikes.
Assumptions and misconceptions around different ingredients and treatments lead to nervousness and misunderstanding; this is the time we can talk freely about these, and you can find out more about them.
With any product or treatment modality suggested, I can explain how it is performed or used, what results you can expect, any side effects and if there is any recovery time and after care.
This all leads to an informed plan by me and an informed choice by you. The treatment plan will incorporate any constraints, whether they are time, budget or lifestyle. Following this, we can order products and book treatments if you would like. We will also arrange reviews during the process to assess progress.
So, the consultation is nothing to fear, it helps you to understand what I can do to help you and what you can expect. It is your time; you have made a brave decision to boost your confidence and this is the way to find out how.
