What happens at our free skin consultation?

If you’re thinking about any cosmetic treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical, you need as much information as possible.

Only then can you make a properly informed choice about which – if any – procedure is right for you.Aurora Skin Clinics: Photo showing Mel in a skin consultation

At Aurora, it’s our policy to offer free no-obligation skin consultations to everyone who expresses an interest.

We love to meet and talk to people about their skin. It’s what we know best, and as a team we really are passionate about it. Some might call us skin geeks, but we don’t care!

We’ll always do our best to advise you comprehensively and honestly. And as our team ‘walk the walk’ and have regular treatments themselves, they’re well placed to let you know exactly what you can expect from our treatments.

So what happens at one of our free skin consultations?

The skin consultation process

Aurora Skin Clinics: Photo showing Staying Safe during Aesthetic TreatmentOur skin consultations are an informal two-way chat, and because everybody is an individual, they don’t follow any set formula.

Your skin consultation will be tailored to you and what you’re interested in.

Whether you’ve specific concerns you’d like to address, a particular treatment (or treatments) you’re researching, or you’d like some advice about your individual skin care routine, we’ll be more than happy to help.

Broadly, we’ll ask you about your goals, and what you’re ideally looking to achieve. And we’ll talk about how we can best help you achieve those goals with our treatments or products.

We’ll also cover your medical history, any current medications and whether you’ve had any aesthetic treatments before. This will help us to treat you effectively and safely.

Skin assessment

Part of the consultation will be dedicated to assessing the condition of your skin.Aurora Skin Clinics: Visia Skin Analysis

If you’re interested in anti-ageing treatments, that will include looking at any active lines, static lines, loss of volume in the face and the quality and texture of your skin.

We sometimes use a Wood’s lamp to help us with the process – completely painless, we promise! The lamp highlights any areas of oiliness, dehydration and sun damage so we can address those.

All of this helps us formulate a specific and personal treatment plan for you.

It may include a treatment or combination of treatments, and a home care regime with suggested products you might want to use to maintain the benefits of any treatment, but more importantly protect your skin from further signs of ageing – specifically sun damage.

At the end of the consultation, you should walk away well informed about the treatments available to you, and feeling confident that we can deliver the results you are looking for.
