What Is a Consultation?
A consultation is a meeting or an appointment where a person discusses with an expert or professional to get advice and information and advice on a service or treatment. Client consultations are a legal requirement before treatment to ensure that regulations are easy to understand. Additionally, it enables you to express what you want and your expectations from the treatment and learn about possible contraindications or risks. Whether you are a new or regular client, you need a consultation since treatments, and your condition may change over time due to various factors. You need to feel safe and have all available options and information laid out to make an informed decision to achieve the desired results according to your needs and goals. Read on to find out how to get the most out of every consultation.
What to Expect During Your Consultation
Before going in for your cosmetic or skin care consultation, note the following to get the most out of your consultation:
- Whether you have noticed any changes in your skin?
- What do you not like or bother you about your skin?
- What would you like to be changed or addressed?
- Who do you entrust to address your skin’s needs?
- What is your goal(s)?
- Are you ready to commit to treatment in terms of time and money fully?
Do some research about the products or services you are targeting; do not go in blind. It would help if you don’t wear makeup on the consultation day, and if you can’t help it, you can remove it at the consultation office. Bring in any medications, supplements, and products you might be using.
Clarify these points to help you better prepare for your consultation with your skin care provider.
During Your Consultation
You will be asked to fill in a consultation form to provide any necessary information about your health, allergies, and any other information required. Once you go in for your skin consultation, express your needs and concerns by clearly communicating with your skincare expert, who will acknowledge your concerns. Your skincare expert will also allow you to share and discuss your expectations, goals, and questions. They will also inform you about their products and services that could help your skin needs.
Then, your skincare expert will assess the condition of your skin and review any aesthetic issues affecting your face, décolletage, neck, or hands. You will be asked questions about your skin history, beauty products, or any cosmetic procedures you might have undergone in the past, and your lifestyle habits such as smoking, diet, and water intake.
Your skin might also be assessed using imaging software to identify any conditions that might be difficult to diagnose and have a more detailed look at your skin. Your complexion and skin type will also be checked. If necessary, a patch test might also be performed.
Your skin care expert will be able to formulate a personalized treatment plan based on your needs and goals, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, skin rejuvenation, and IPL treatments. They will explain the cost implications, achievable outcomes, and realistic treatment expectations. You can also ask to see “before” and “after” pictures of previous clients, and your skin care expert may also take a “before” photo for you to look at during your treatment progress during and after treatment. You will be given a written report to take home with you.
