What is a skincare consultation?

If you’re new to the world of skincare, you may be wondering what a skincare consultation is. A skincare consultation where you discuss your skin concerns with a medical professional.  They will assess your skin and recommend products and treatments based on your individual needs. During a consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about any concerns you have about your skin and learn more about how to take care of it. If you’re thinking about getting any injectable treatments or starting a skincare routine, scheduling a consultation is a perfect way to get started to understand all the options suitable to you! Carry on reading this blog to find out more.

A skincare consultation assessment

A skincare consultation is a great way to get expert advice on specific skin concerns as well as skin type identification. At Amedics, Dr Ameera will provide one-on-one advice based on individual needs. During the skin care consultation, we take into account various skin variables such as age, lifestyle, stress levels and existing skin conditions to assess what kind of skin products and treatments would best suit you. A thorough skincare assessment will include looking at factors that influence skin health, we look at fine lines & wrinkles, pigmentation, laxity or ageing skin and offer a treatment plan to combat these concerns. We also assess the skins suitability for injectable treatments like toxin or dermal fillers. 

They will then recommend products and treatments that are suitable for you

Depending on what the aesthetic doctor finds or what your concerns are, they may recommend certain skin treatments such as: 

  • Medical grade skincare (including Obagi or ZO skin health),  
  • Injectables like Botulinum toxin or dermal fillers
  • Chemical peels
  • Medical micro-needling
  • Skinboosters like Profhilo or collagen injections 

The above are all designed to improve your skin’s hydration, tone, and texture. Moreover, skincare specialists may also suggest certain skincare products such as moisturisers, sunscreens, serums, cleansers, exfoliants and more that suit your individual needs. 

If you want glowing and healthier-looking skin then consider visiting our aesthetic clinic in Leicester for an initial skincare consultation.

After the consultation, you should have a better understanding of the right treatment for you

After skincare consultations, you should feel more confident about maintaining healthy skin for years to come. The visit should provide you with a better understanding of skin health and how to best care for whatever skin type you have. You will discuss a personalised treatment plan that you can start on straight away. 

You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about your skin and get advice from the professional who is performing your consultation. From building a routine that works best for your skin type, talking through ingredients in skin care products, and discussing all injectable or machine-based devices that can give you the skin that you want.  

After the consultation, you should have a better understanding not just of what needs to be done but how often it must be done. This allows informed decision-making when buying products or arranging your usual skincare regimen.  With this better understanding–mentally and visually–you will now have the knowledge needed about your skin and feel confident about properly caring for it.
