Reaching your goals, solving your skin concerns
In order to have healthy skin, you must understand the condition your skin is in now, what has led to this condition and what is optimum health for your skin type and your age. It is not sufficient for someone to look at your skin and simply tell you it is dehydrated or photodamaged/sun damaged. A Skin Consultation Analysis is the first step in determining the specific needs of your skin.
The staff at The Skin Care Clinic are trained to educate you about your skin, to analyse your skin and to consult with you as to what you wish to achieve in creating healthier skin. They will plan with you a program of home care and in-clinic treatments which will be easy to follow and easier still when you start to see and feel changes happening in your skin.
Of course, if you don’t live in Hobart, you may be unable to come and see us. However, please email us your questions with selfies, explaining your concerns. We have enough experience (18 years or so) to be able to advise you.
If necessary, we will work within your budget to make a program more accessible for you – online or in-clinic.
Your first visit to The Skin Care Clinic
At your first visit, you will be asked a series of questions that give the consultant an overall feeling for your skin; you will have a basic skin anatomy lesson, and your skin will be cleansed and then examined under a Wood’s lamp. This is an ultraviolet lamp that shows levels of hydration, types plus amount of oil and pigment as well as the overall health of your dermis – the deeper layer of your skin.
It is often appropriate for you to begin your new skin regime with a facial treatment. This can usually be accommodated during this visit; it gets you off to a flying start and you’ll leave with your skin glowing. It will be tailor-made on the day for you depending on your skin condition and your concerns.
Antioxidants will be applied and a protective SPF moisturiser, whether you require a treatment or not.
You will then sit down and a treatment plan will be discussed with you.
This consultation lasts 1 hour and costs $60; there are additional costs for your at-home products and any treatments you have on the day.
Subsequent consultations cost $30, which is waived if you have any treatment. An hour is usually scheduled; however, these appointments may be shorter. Each time you visit you will have your skin cleansed and examined, your program plus products will be reviewed and changes made if required. As you use these products and as your skin changes, the products will need to change to suit your new skin, so we recommend that you contact the clinic whenever a product is finished.
Staff can be contacted by email with any concerns or problems you may have.
