Trick or Treatment
If you’re considering a facial aesthetics treatment, perhaps you’re wondering how to go about finding the right aesthetics clinic.
To avoid being ‘tricked’ into a treatment that isn’t suitable for you, or isn’t carried out by a qualified professional, here are some top tips to make sure that you have the treatment and level of care that you would expect.
Cheapest is not always best...
You get what you pay for. With wrinkle reduction and skincare treatments, it’s important to pick a facial aesthetics clinic that delivers on value rather than price. It might be tempting to compromise and go for the cheapest, however, when you sacrifice quality, you may find yourself in the hands of an inexperienced or unqualified practitioner. Quality treatments and products will give you long lasting results and results that you are happy with.
Choose someone who is qualified
In the right hands, wrinkle reduction treatments have a fantastic safety record. In the wrong hands, the results can be less than satisfactory. If in doubt, ask to see their credentials.
Check the practitioner is insured
Facial aesthetic clinics offering wrinkle reduction and skincare treatments should have appropriate insurance. Before booking an appointment, ask the clinic you’re considering whether they have medical insurance to protect their clients.
Visit the Clinic first
Generally, reputable facial aesthetics clinic will offer a choice of different facial aesthetics treatments and offer you a free consultation. This lets you check out the staff and premises, ask questions and identify the best facial aesthetics treatment for you without being under pressure to buy. Some wrinkle reduction treatments use fine needles to inject product into your skin. It is therefore important that these treatments are administered in a clean and suitable environment.
Look for Recommendations
Do you have family or friends who can recommend a facial aesthetics clinic? What are people saying about a clinic on Facebook or Twitter? Does the facial aesthetics clinic you’ve found offer before and after pictures of clients with recent testimonials?
Know what to expect
A good facial aesthetics clinic will give you information about your post-treatment care and be happy to explain how the procedure works in more detail. By doing some background research, you will have realistic expectations for your treatment and understand whether it is the right option for you.
Ask about the clinic’s follow-up service
A wrinkle reduction treatment can take up to two weeks before you see the full effect. A good facial aesthetics clinic will usually offer you a follow-up appointment to check that you are happy with the result and to make sure that small sections of the treatment area weren’t missed.
