What's included in a Skin Consultation?
We know more than anyone that first impressions count, which is why we are dedicated to making your visit to us extra special. We have specialised in skin for over 13 years, treating conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, pigmentation, rosacea and premature ageing. Our skin consultations give us an in-depth view into your lifestyle, genes and daily routine to enable us to come up with a tailor-made treatment plan individual to you. So you may be wondering what happens in a consultationFace mapping is a term used for dividing the face into sections to create a deeper conclusion of skin type and concern. Instead of analysing the skin in a general term the best diagnosis is done by looking at each area individually. The skin on the forehead for example may present signs of sun damage from over exposure to UV, whereas the lower half of the face is subject to elasticity loss due to gravity on the jawline and skin thickness on the neck.Nutrition and diet play a huge role in the development of many skin conditions. It is important to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle in order to achieve maximum skin health. Certain foods may need to be avoided and occasionally food groups can be a trigger of the problem. We have worked closely with a top nutritionist to devise diet plans for every skin concern. We even have a personal trainer on hand to offer exercise and lifestyle advice.Product prescriptions are often required as part of your skincare plan. Achieving great skin is not something we can do alone; it requires hard work and dedication from you to acquire the best results in the shortest time. This may mean you are prescribed a home care regime to follow in-between your clinic treatments. Treatments aren't always required, sometimes home use products are enough for you to achieve your skin goals. If you lead a busy lifestyle and can not commit to a treatment plan we can manage your skin journey through use of products and are always on hand for regular Skype consultations if needs be.Photographs are an essential part of your skin transformation. When seeing yourself every day it can be difficult to look for results and know what to expect. We have a 4D skin analysis machine that takes in depth photographs of the skin under different lights to show an accurate plan of the skins make up. This is not only useful for before and after shots but can also pick up concerns not visible to the human eye. Underlying dermal pigment, excessive dead cell build up, hidden vascular disorders and barrier dysfunctions can be highlighted using the OBSERV 520. You even get a copy of your photographs to keep and compare.If you're looking to start your new skin journey, book in for your free consultation and let us get you started.
