Getting the Most out of Your Cosmetic Consult

I know I want to look better, but I don’t know what I need?   This is often the first question our new clients come in with. Us Central Oregonians are healthy, we like eating right, exercising and practicing yoga, but face it we are all getting older and sometimes we’d like to look a little better.

A cosmetic consult is a great place to start, and taking a few minutes to prepare can help you get the most from your visit.

Start by taking a look in the mirror. What do you focus on first? Try to define what you would most like to improve, do you look right at your fine lines and wrinkles? Pigmentation? Skin texture? Loose skin? There are several on line resources available to help you. One of our favorites is the juvederm treatment visualizer app (available for free on the I tunes store).

Next think budget and time. Some treatments, like Botox, can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, with noticeable results in 5-10 days. Other treatments, such as laser treatments on brown spots or tattoo removals require multiple treatments spaced several weeks or months apart.

Of course our trained practitioners can help you through this process, but a little pre visit planning will help you get the best results.
