The Importance of a Professional Skin Consultation
Are you having problems with your skin, or perhaps looking to start with a new skin care routine? Whether you need advice or treatment, it is important to seek professional help. This is where a professional skin consultation can be beneficial. It eliminates the guesswork involved when determining which skincare treatments and routines are right for you.

Even if you think you know your skin well, you are better off with the guidance of a professional because your skin’s condition and texture may change as you age. You could also save time and money when you immediately know what to do and which products you should use for your skin.

Professional skin consultations are performed whenever you visit a new skin clinic or a dermatologist. That’s the only way an expert can provide tailored advice to ensure the best results. The consultation is also a good chance to get to know the expert, as it is important for you to be comfortable with a professional’s way of guiding you through your skin care routine or treatment.

The consultation will help the expert understand your skin concerns before they recommend the right skincare treatments. Professional skin consultants follow this process for most patients:

Upon arrival, at the clinic, you will have to complete a form that will ask for your medical history, general and lifestyle information, and skin concerns. The form tells the consultant how you are taking care of your skin and give them an idea of what may be causing your skin problem. Likewise, they can determine if you are taking any medication.

Observ 520 is a state-of-the-art device that takes skin analysis photographs. It will take six different images to show the various surface layers and the deeper layers of your skin. This way, the consultant can explore your skin’s progression.

At this point, the skin expert will connect with you and determine the purpose of your visit. They will discuss your health, skin history, skin care routine, lifestyle, and other factors that may be contributing to your concern. To them, there is always a reason why skin is acting a certain way.

Skincare professionals will want to take a closer look and feel of your skin before deciding on skincare treatments. This way, they can identify visible concerns, like oil flow, rosacea, pigmentation, dryness, congestion, dehydration, and others. Special tools like a magnifying lamp may be used to determine blackheads, pore size, skin texture, and other problems you may have missed.

A professional skin consultation may seem overwhelming, but it will ensure a good start to a new and effective skin care treatment or routine.
