What to expect from your consultation with Cosmetier
In order to establish your concerns and expectations as well formulate your Treatment Journey, it is crucial to have a consultation. Without this you will not be adequately informed of the condition of your skin, your treatment needs and especially the benefits and risks of certain treatments.
This takes about a forty five minutes to an hour.
Certain anti-wrinkle treatments may be undertaken on the same appointment as the consultation but quite often we arrange another date for treatments as this allows you to consider whether you want to proceed and it is also considered'best clinical practice' rather than 'rushing to make a sale'.
We charge £45 that you can refundable against the cost of treatment.
It would be preferable if you did not have makeup on for the appointments in order to allow thorough examination of your skin. However, if you prefer to have make-up on, we can remove it at the appointment.
The first thing that we will do is talk to you about your concerns and expectations. You are the most important person in this process and we need to know what is bothering you so that we can make a treatment plan together. This plan is part of a journey that we, you and I, may not want to or be able to complete in one appointment. Lots of factors play a part and we will consider all of these when we make our plan. We thoroughly check your medical history and any other relevant history pertaining to your skin including your ability to burn/ tan and your ethnicity. This information starts to paint a picture about your skin type and how you will respond or react to certain treatments. We will also examine how much volume loss you have had as well as assessing how much your skin has thinned over the years. Next we will examine your skin to check for areas of redness, scarring, acne and pigmentation. We check the texture of your skin to ascertain whether it is dry/ oily/ coarse and then the elasticity of it. This gives us an idea of how much, if any, photo damage or aging has occurred.
