Exceptional Skincare Technologies at Nurse-Led Clinic
“Face the Future is an independent, nurse-led skincare clinic based just outside of Leeds. It combines cutting-edge therapies with a range of exceptional, globally-sourced skincare technologies and a rigorous commitment to training. Led by Kate Bancroft, a nurse independent prescriber with over three decades experience in the health industry, Face the Future has been at the vanguard of clinics that strictly self-regulate their therapies, placing care-duties above profit and ensuring that patients are fully informed of the realities of treatment options.Here's what Nurse Independent Prescriber, Kate Bancroft, had to say about being chosen to contribute to the Parliamentary Review's private healthcare edition“When the opportunity arose to contribute to the Private Healthcare report “ and in such a prestigious and highly regarded publication “ we were delighted. The clinic was established in 2005, a time when both cosmetic dermatology and medical aesthetics were fledgling practices, Face the Future has stood the test of time. This is credit to our dedication to enhancing skin health for the long term, using science-based, bespoke programs for men, women, and children.Our unique and personalised approach to treatments and offering free consultations further emphasises our commitment to patient care and solidifies patient-clinician relationships.
Personalised Approach to Treatments
“As a nurse-led clinic, all our patients at Face the Future are offered free consultations with a qualified medical practitioner, giving them time to express any anxieties relating to their skin condition and potential treatment options. We try to avoid rigid programmes of care and instead offer a more personalised approach to individual needs and lifestyles. We find that offering free consultations is crucial in encouraging the build-up of trust between the professional and the patient. Many patients come to us after years of frustration and disappointment and need significant support throughout their treatment journey. Beginning this process with a show of good faith on our part demonstrates that we wish to begin a patient- clinician relationship, acting on the results of the consultation.
To Treat or Not to Treat?
“One of the major challenges that we face revolves around the growing popularity of treatments such as botox and dermal fillers. Due to an historic lack of regulation, the public are often poorly educated regarding the potential risks and benefits of these treatments.We have worked hard to not encourage nor advocate so-called “fashion-filling at a fundamental level. We often reject patients who we feel are seeking treatment to help with deeper routed issues of low self-esteem and poor self-confidence.We are proud of our approach to this side of the industry. Even with patients where botox and filler may be indicated, we try to encourage small corrections rather than obvious changes, enhancing what is already there rather than changing the way someone looks.To read Face the Future's contribution to the Parliamentary Review in full, click here
