Beginning with a Comprehensive Skin Assessment

How often do you think about your skin? You might spend more time thinking about the way you look or wondering how other people
see you. But you probably don’t think about your skin’s health. Well, believe it or not, your skin is one of the first things people notice when they look at you. We just don’t realise it because it’s so automatic. We look at skin all the time. It’s time to start prioritising your skin’s health. Today, we want to show you how to begin your journey towards better skin. We want you to find confidence in your skin and, ultimately, confidence in yourself.

Your journey to beautiful, healthy skin should start with a comprehensive skin assessment, performed by a professional skin practitioner. You should do this before you have any treatments. You might already have your own skin routine in place. And that’s great! But if you want to take it to the next level, you’ll need professional input. Remember, a lot of the skin care advice you hear is of a general nature. It applies to a wide range of people. But you really want advice that applies specifically to you.

Not all skin is the same. So it’s crucial to match the right clinical technique to your unique situation to ensure the best outcome possible.
When we conduct a thorough skin assessment, we learn about your skin concerns. Then we can tailor a solution that is safe and effective for you.


The Skin Assessment Process

So what happens in a skin assessment? Your skin assessment will be performed by one of our Registered Nurses or Skin Therapists. Our staff are experts in the science of skin care. They also understand the art of personal appearance and know how to help you look your best.
We understand that this might be intimidating for some people. Maybe you have a long-term skin condition and feel a bit self-conscious about having it looked at. But don’t worry. Many of our clients feel nervous when they come in for the first time. We do everything we can to make sure your assessment is welcoming and relaxed, which always comes with a professional outlook.

Step 1. We Discuss Your History
Your practitioner will start by asking what your specific concerns are about your skin. We then check what your goals are too, and what you hope to see as the outcome of treatments. It’s important that we establish what you want upfront. Because we are here to help you achieve your goals, not anyone else’s. It’s all about giving you confidence in yourself.

Once we’ve established your goals, we’ll ask questions about your medical history, your lifestyle, and any past skin conditions or skin treatments. It’s also worth mentioning any skin care products you’re using already.

Step 2. Examination
Once we have this information, your Nurse or Skin Therapist will conduct the examination. The exact process can vary, based on what condition you’re dealing with. In most cases, we’ll give your face a gentle cleanse first to remove makeup and debris. This way we can see more clearly the health and condition of the skin.

Our nurses will use certain tools to help with the assessment, and all of them are non-invasive. We may also take some photos. Don’t worry if you’re a bit uncomfortable with having your photo taken. They are simply used to document your progress as you go through treatments. Also, our nurses are trained to identify any severe or serious skin conditions. If they do find something unusual, they will refer to your GP or our Dermatologist for specialist
intervention.

Finally, a doctor will attend the assessment if your skin care plan is likely to include
cosmetic injections.


Step 3. Outline Your Action Plan
In the final stage, your practitioner will outline your skin care plan. It will be personally designed to suit your skin concerns. You will be able to see a recommendation of in-clinic treatments and home skin care products. It’ll also include a timeline for your skin care plan and a cost estimate. We will explain how your treatments will address your specific concerns. And if there’s anything you’re not comfortable with, we can suggest an alternative you’re more comfortable
with.

There is no obligation to book in any treatments or buy any products after your skin assessment. If you need time to think about it further, you’re welcome to take the information home and consider your options.

Final Step: Enjoy the Confidence of Healthy Skin
Your confidence is worth investing in. Many people can struggle to feel good about themselves. The best way to pick yourself up is
to do a little self-care. Prove to yourself that you are worth caring for. And taking care of your skin is a great way to improve your self-worth and your confidence.
