How to get the best results from your treatment

When investing in an aesthetic treatment, we all want to ensure that we achieve the best possible results. So, how do we make sure this happens?

The answer has two parts. Firstly, make sure you put your skin in expert hands. There are three levels of cosmetic clinics. The first consists of beauty clinics run by beauticians, often referred to as dermal therapists or dermal technicians. These clinics offer standard beauty treatments including facials, peels, microdermabrasion and some light-based therapies.

The second level consists of non-invasive cosmetic clinics run by doctors and cosmetic nurses who are qualified to administer a more diverse range of treatments including, cosmetic injectables, laser, and skin tightening.

The final level consists of cosmetic surgeries, run by cosmetic surgeons who perform more invasive procedures including breast augmentation and liposuction.

Achieve the best results by making sure you’re being treated by a professional with the correct level of experience for the treatment you’re investing in.

Secondly, take the time to have a thorough consultation prior to your treatment. This goes for any kind of treatment, from a microdermabrasion, through to a Fraxel®. In this consultation, ensure your clinician covers the following:

Exactly what the treatment involves

Get as much detail as possible prior to your treatment so you’re not surprised at any point.

Whether there is any pain involved

Ask what measures will be taken to minimise discomfort if there will be pain – i.e. local anaesthetic, cool gels or cold compresses.

Who isn’t suitable for the treatment

Always ask whether any of your lifestyle factors could potentially impact you undergoing the treatment. This could be anything from your alcohol habits, to how you’re trying to conceive.

What to expect following treatment

There’s nothing worse than having a treatment and then realising it requires two to three days of social downtime because you’re red and peeling.  Get detailed instructions of what you can and can’t do following your treatment.

How to care for your skin following the treatment

This one’s an important one. How you care for your skin following your treatment will dictate the quality of your results. So, if they say to avoid the sun and to wear 50+ sunscreen, do it! Same goes for your skincare regime. And always ask whether you can still use your serums and active skincare products, or whether you need to rest them for a while.
