I proceeded as I always do and suggested that we start with some quick photos taken from different angles. This allows us to look at the photos together on the computer screen in the privacy of a consultation room and know we are both seeing the same thing. “If you could change anything about your appearance, what would it be?” I asked her. “I hate my wrinkles!” she said.
This began a conversation to discuss her various concerns which included fine lines, sun damage, and facial spider veins. She also had lost volume in her face which was making her appear tired. She was a slender woman who had seen a lot of sun, but sagging was the least of her concerns. With her permission, I pointed out what I saw, and explained that of the many options we have available, Ultherapy is not the treatment I would recommend for her. Not that Ultherapy isn’t a great treatment! It just isn’t the treatment for what she wants to accomplish. Simply put, it is not going to do what she wanted it to do. She needed something completely different than the treatment she wanted!
Our style of consultation is relaxed and educational. Our goal during a consultation, I explained to her, is to find out what results you are hoping to achieve and help you achieve the benefits you want within the budget you wish to invest. Based on your specific concerns and the order of your priorities, we make suggestions on which treatment or combination of treatments will accomplish your goals. One option at a time we explain what each appropriate treatment can do for you. We show you before and after examples of what we have achieved for other people who have given us permission to show their photos. We tell you how the treatment works, how much it costs, and what to expect during and after your treatment. We review your medical history, discuss any risks, and provide written pre and post-treatment instructions and literature for you to take home.
It is not our goal to tell you what to do but to give you the information you need to make an informed decision. The key to patient satisfaction in this wonderful world of medical aesthetics is to proceed with the right treatment plan. Once you have all your questions answered, maybe you’ll dip your toe in the water and do a little something for yourself. Maybe you’ll dive in and make some major changes. Or maybe you’ll just take the information home to think it over, and that’s okay too.
If you’ve been thinking about investing in your appearance, our hope is that you will think about us. Skinpossible would value and appreciate an opportunity to be your treatment provider. Evening and Saturday appointments are available. Consultations at Skinpossible are free and so is parking.
