What to expect at your skin clinic consultation following Covid-19?

The government lock down meant that our clinics unfortunately had to temporarily close for a few months. The time has come for us to look at opening the doors of our clinics again. To ensure the safety of our patients and staff, we have had to make a few changes so you will feel comfortable.

You might be looking for a skin treatment such as dermal fillers, skin peels, laser treatment for acne or treatments for anti-ageing such as laser for brown spots, laser skin tightening or rejuvenation. Whatever your condition, you can rest assured that we have a bespoke solution for you.

New Skin Clinic Patients

All new skin clinic patients will be encouraged to have an initial consultation over the phone with one of our experienced patient coordinators. Our patient coordinators are very knowledgeable in the treatments that we offer and will be able to find out which treatment may be best suited for you based on the skin concerns that you have.

This initial consultation is also a great chance for us to send you any products that you may be required to use ahead of your potential treatment, so your skin is well prepared.

If you know which treatment you want, then this is a great way to find out more and ensure that you are well informed ahead of your visit to the clinic.

Existing Skin Clinic Patients

If you are an existing patient, you will be given the option of an over the phone consultation if you are perhaps considering a new treatment. If you are returning to complete a course of treatments or having a repeat of a treatment that you have had previously then you will be given a time to visit clinic with your selected practitioner, doctor or nurse.

Visiting our Skins Clinics

You will be required to come to clinic ahead of your first treatment if you require a patch test. We are only able to offer patch tests in person and you will not be able to book any of our laser treatments if you have not previously had a patch test with us before.

If you decide to go ahead with treatment, this will take place in clinic. We have introduced some new protocols to ensure the safety of our patients and staff which include.
