Whether you’re a seasoned Botox regular, or brand new to the world of medical aesthetics, we’re here to help you understand all things “med spa.” This week we’ll focus on why a consultation & assessment are necessary steps in achieving your aesthetic goals. Here are 3 reasons why you should expect to receive a consultation & assessment with your visit to LuxeSkin Med Spa:
They’re Medical Treatments
While completely elective (and super fun), many of the services offered at LuxeSkin are considered medical treatments. When you need a refill of your blood pressure medication, or an antibiotic for a sinus infection, you contact your doctor’s office, right? Same thing goes for treatments such as Botox/Dysport, fillers, microneedling, etcetera. These treatments require a comprehensive health assessment with a licensed healthcare professional, as well as a prescription for treatment from a physician or advanced practice provider (APP). This ensures that you’re an appropriate candidate for treatment, as well as allows for an individualized treatment plan based upon your personal aesthetic goals and our professional expertise.
Managing expectations versus reality is extremely important. Most patients who seek aesthetic treatments will require multiple sessions over an extended period, as well as a combination of various treatments to achieve their desired outcome. One Botox/Dysport treatment is not going to completely smooth out deep, etched in static lines, nor will it correct lines or wrinkles due to volume loss. During the consultation and assessment, our licensed healthcare providers will develop a comprehensive treatment plan for you. This includes taking before & after photos to monitor progress, while adjusting your treatment plan where and whenever needed. Financial expectations are also discussed, as we strive to maintain complete transparency regarding service cost to work within your budget.
Know your options
There’s a saying-You don’t know what you don’t know. Perhaps you want to bring some life back to your tired undereye, but you also desire a little lifting of those pesky jowls. You’re thinking “I need my undereye and lower face done.” What you don’t know is that the undereye and lower face can often be corrected (at least in part) by adding support to the midface. Perhaps you’re open to injectables at some point, but maybe now isn’t the time. Have you heard about the results people are getting with regenerative aesthetics, such as PRP? Maybe you really want to use tretinoin, but your skin just can’t tolerate it. Have you considered a retinaldehyde? The consultation process allows you to share your goals with our licensed professionals, giving us the opportunity to provide you with a comprehensive assessment so that we can outline all the options available to you. We also do not hesitate to tell you no (sometimes that extra syringe of filler in your lips is just not a good idea), nor will we hesitate to refer you to a specialist if we don’t offer what we feel you really need (a brow lift will not offer surgical results for someone who really needs a blepharoplasty).
While visiting a med spa is fun and elective, it’s important to remember that many of the treatments you’re seeking are actual medical interventions and require prescriptions/orders from a physician or APP. The licensed healthcare providers at LuxeSkin will utilize the consultation and assessment to create a customized treatment plan sure to offer you the most optimal results!
