The Consultation Process

Discover You At Your Best with your DestinationSkin treatment journey

Your journey into advanced skin solutions starts with a mandatory skin consultation that allows you to discuss your condition, treatment goals and expectations with a medical practitioner. Consultations are bespoke to each client and will all be held in a private treatment room. Depending on your concern, the medical practitioner you’ll speak to will either be a doctor, nurse or practitioner who’s highly qualified in treating your specific condition.

What happens during the consultation?

As part of our commitment to safety, you will be asked some questions about your medical history & lifestyle and will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire & self-certification form.

UV skin scanning during a consultationYour consultation also includes taking a deeper look at your concern; depending on your condition, this might mean having your skin scanned under a UV lamp or having a patch test (e.g. for excessive hair growth treatment).

 

You can expect to be with your practitioner for up to 45 minutes in total, which gives you time to ask any questions about the treatments prescribed for you.

What will my treatment journey look like?

Your treatment plan is as unique as you are. We pride ourselves on being honest & genuine in our approach and only recommend a treatment plan that will deliver a solution to your concern and help you to restore your health. For some conditions such as Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) your doctor or nurse might only recommend injectable treatments (toxin), whereas some conditions such as acne might need a combination of treatments & clinically proven cosmeceutical products to achieve the results you deserve.

What will I take home with me?

Your no-obligation consultation is an opportunity to discuss your condition with a medical practitioner without feeling any pressure to buy. We understand it can be difficult to remember everything your practitioner discusses with you, so we’ve developed a library of educational leaflets that explain each of the conditions we treat as well as information about how our treatments work to support your decision making at home. You will also be given a bespoke client prescription which explains your optimum treatment program.

What happens after each treatment?

As part of your treatment plan, you’ll have full access to our aftercare. We pride ourselves on getting results for our clients and strive to make a tangible difference to every person we see, from improving self-confidence through to helping you live your life without a condition taking control. If you need to speak to a member of our team at any point, we can either book you in for a free treatment review, offer advice over the phone, or even refer you to our Medical Director. When you commit to correcting a skin condition with DestinationSkin, we commit to offering you the complete tailored service that you deserve.
