During your first consultation we will spend about 90 minutes thoroughly investigating your condition and causes. This is how we are different from your average skin clinic. It is impossible to identify all triggers for your acne in 20 minutes. Because we take the time to fully understand your skin, we eliminate the road blocks to success that are often missed by therapists who do not take the time to do a full skin diagnosis and lifestyle consultation.
We will discuss what acne is, because understanding how it forms and what it is, helps to get you clear and makes you more compliant with the treatments and process. While you often are not doing anything to cause your acne, you may be doing things that are triggering it and making it much worse and harder to clear. During our consultation we will help you to understand why your skin may be flaring more than normal and what you can do yourself to control it more.
During your initial consultation we will examine and test your skin to identify the amount of oil you have and the specific type of acne that you have. Our advanced skin analysis device will examine the number of bacteria you have on your skin and the moisture levels of your skin. These factors will help us put together a treatment plan and home care products for you.
If our Cosmetic Chemist thinks your skin needs something a bit different, then we can custom compound something that is unique for your individual skin needs.
We will also provide the first treatment for free during your consultation, so that you get off to the right start with clearing your skin. During your first consultation you will need to purchase product to take care of your skin at home. 80% of your results come from what you use on a daily basis. The products will cost approximately $130-$300 which will last you approximately 3 months.
I wish I lived near you but I am too far away. Can you still treat me?
Yes, we can still treat you. 80% of your results are home care. If you are a long-distance client, your skin therapist will organise regular video conference call to check in with you and to assess your skins progress. To accelerate your progress, you can purchase professional products for you to use at home, that will give you as close as possible to a salon treatment experience with results. We will give you detailed instructions on how to use them. All of our products are natural and there is no risk of burning or damaging your skin. We do not use anything with extremes of pH, so even the inexperienced can successfully treat their skin and get as close as possible to the results achievable in clinic.
