The Journey Begins: Your First Step - The Consultation

"Within the consultation lies the spark of transformation, where aspirations meet expertise to craft the blueprint of beauty." Anonymous

The consultation is a personalised appointment with our prescribing aesthetic nurse, where you can discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals and explore potential treatment options. At your initial consultation, which generally spans from thirty minutes to an hour, confidentiality is paramount, and there is absolutely no pressure to commit to any treatments or purchases.

You may have some questions...

What should I expect at my consultation? During your consultation, you will be provided with a personalised and comprehensive assessment of your cosmetic concerns and goals. Here's what typically happens during a consultation: Discussion of Concerns and Goals: The consultation begins with a discussion where you'll have the opportunity to express your aesthetic concerns, desired outcomes, and goals for treatment. This could include concerns about aging, skin texture, volume loss, body contouring, or any other cosmetic issues you wish to address. Medical History Review: We will review your medical history, including any past surgeries, medical conditions, allergies, medications, and previous aesthetic treatments. This information helps ensure that recommended treatments are safe and suitable for you. Physical Examination: A thorough physical examination of the areas of concern may be conducted. This allows us to assess your skin quality, facial symmetry, volume loss, and other factors that may impact treatment recommendations. Education on Treatment Options: Based on your concerns and goals, various treatment will be discussed along with available options. This may include both non-surgical treatments such as injectables, or plasma pen as well as skin health options like chemical peels or topical skin care regimes. Customised Treatment Plan: Following the discussion of treatment options, we will create a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and preferences. This plan may involve a single procedure or a combination of treatments to achieve the desired results. Explanation of Procedure Details: We will explain the details of the recommended procedures, including how they work, what to expect during and after treatment, potential side effects, downtime, and expected results. This information helps you make an informed decision about proceeding with the treatment plan. Cost and Financing Information: You'll receive information about the cost of the recommended procedures, including any associated fees. Questions and Clarifications: Throughout the consultation, you will be encouraged to ask any questions or seek clarifications about the proposed treatments, potential risks, expected outcomes, or any other concerns you may have. Scheduling Follow-Up Appointments: If you decide to proceed with treatment, the consultation may conclude with scheduling follow-up appointments for the procedure(s) and any necessary pre-treatment preparations. The consultation is an opportunity for you to openly discuss your cosmetic goals, receive expert recommendations, and make informed decisions about enhancing your appearance safely and effectively.
What is the cost of an aesthetic consultation at pHskin? All consultations, except skin health consultations, are free of charge. However, when booking you may be asked to provide your card details as a no show or late cancellation protection for our business.
Should I remove my makeup before a consultation? While it's not mandatory to remove makeup before your consultation at pHskin, our aesthetic nurse may request it during your appointment if deemed necessary. However, arriving makeup-free can allow our nurse to focus more effectively on your assessment, maximising the time devoted to your needs.
What questions can I ask at my consultation? Feel free to ask any questions or raise any concerns you deem necessary during your consultation. Our experienced aesthetic nurse has years of experience caring for patients from all walks of life and is well-prepared to handle most situations beyond her aesthetic role. It's not uncommon for the aesthetic consultation to evolve into a counseling session, as many patients have waited and agonised before seeking help from aesthetic interventions. Rest assured, there's always a box of tissues on hand!
Can I bring someone with me to my consultation? Certainly! Indeed, the adage "two heads are better than one" holds true in this scenario. With a plethora of information to absorb and decisions to contemplate, having someone accompany you can provide invaluable support. Their presence can offer reassurance and assistance as you navigate through the consultation process and make decisions regarding any treatments.
Do I really need a consultation or can I just book in for a treatment? For returning patients, a consultation before every treatment may not always be required. However, as per our policy, invasive treatments are never administered without a comprehensive initial consultation. In certain cases, treatment may be scheduled on the same day as the consultation, provided you and your treating practitioner are happy to proceed.
