At Medical Cosmetics, our goal is to make our patients feel better about themselves, and the first step in doing that is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with them. Whether you’re interested in a chemical peel, MiraDry, microdermabrasion, Sculptra, or another treatment, a consultation with a professional can help you familiarize yourself with both the treatment and the person performing it.
Here are some tips to help you make your aesthetic consultation even better:
Inquire About Experience
If you’re unfamiliar with the business performing your service, don’t be afraid to ask questions about their experience. Things like how long they’ve been in business, how many procedures they’ve performed, and if they’re certified can help you understand their level of expertise and give you peace of mind.
Take Notes on Preparation and After-Care
Depending on what procedure you’d like to have done, there may be some preparation and/or after-care involved. During your consultation, your consultant should go over exactly what should be done leading up to the procedure and after the procedure. These tips are very important, so take notes – they’ll help you remember what to do to achieve the best results.
If you’re interested in an aesthetic service like permanent makeup or brow waxing, don’t be afraid to bring a picture or two of the look you want. This will give the specialist a better idea of the style you’re trying to achieve and can give them an idea of what to do.
The purpose of a consultation is to not only familiarize the client with the patient, but also to familiarize the patient with the client. If you have any questions about the procedure you’re interested in, ask them! There are no “stupid” questions and the more you know, the better.
Know Your Quote
With the wide variety of procedures that are available, prices can vary greatly. There are many different factors that contribute to the total cost of a procedure and while you think you may know how much to plan for, you could be wrong. During your consultation, get an exact quote for the service you’re interested in. This way, the cost won’t come as a surprise on the day of your procedure.
