Why I believe the consultation is one of the most important and the first proper step to address any skin issues?
I like details. I like stories. I love beginnings and I love to listen.
I like to discover, to be a ‘detective”, to ask questions, to explain, and to find answers.
My days as a skincare therapist are a lineup of treatments for acne, scars, diverse pigmentations, regular facials, peelings, IPL sessions, and every time, but absolutely every time when I have a new customer, consultations. I must tell you this is my favorite part of the day. I strongly believe that one of the most important parts of a successful facial treatment is the Consultation.
A full in-depth consultation is the key to access the overall health of the skin. I see this first meeting as our chance to become “friends in skincare”.
In the most relaxing manner, with all my attention to small details which may appear without any importance for you, we will start learning about your general health state, any possible medical issues, medications, or any other conditions. For me, this is just the beginning of drawing up a map, which will lead us to a “solution”. The most suitable solution, for each one of you.
I will ask you a lot of things, about your skincare routine, daily, weekly, occasionally, habits, events, experiences, what you like, what you hate, what are your goals, how was and what you would change to your journey. We will also review some diet/eating habits and lifestyle factors, together.
After I will have all these details, and the “control keys”, I can reach to a conclusion, and I will be more than happy to show you how I’m building up this “puzzle” and create a clear image out of it.
Me, if I was a client, I would be concerned and in doubt, if I wouldn’t receive something similar. I strongly believe that one cannot think about himself/herself as a professional esthetician, who offers customized treatments and facials, if he/she cannot solve this “puzzle” first.
Sometimes the key is in the health issues, or in a long-time medication (like for most of the hyper pigmentations). Other times it could just be in a small detail in your daily routine, like a harmful scrub.
Anyhow, I am here for you. This is the most challenging daily exam for me in front of my guests, to connect the dots in a specific way and to put together everything that I learn about them with my professional experience and knowledge, concluding with practical solutions, that are comfortable and manageable.
My foremost goal during consultation is to explain you, why am I choosing a certain plan (type of the treatments, their regularity, home care routine and products) and not another, even if you might be somehow convinced of better efficacy of some solutions from other sources. We will discuss those as well.
Also, I will do my best to show you why most of the times you need a plan, which is never too late to apply and why that baby steps sometimes are the path to success. It is imperative to start with healing, and a happy skin is a healthy skin.
You do not need anything aggressive, harmful, or painful and we can always find suitable solutions for your lifestyle and budget.
A 10-minute free consultation is included for any new client looking to have a regular facial treatment. We do this to find out the suitability and possible contraindications for the treatment (if any).
For any skin concerns or specific conditions such as acne, rosacea, premature ageing or pigmentation disorders, the elaborate consultation (1h) is mandatory before we start any of these treatments and is also available as a stand-alone service.
