The consultation process should focus on your skin goals and needs. First and foremost, you want to be starting an effective daily skincare program that includes essential skincare ingredients. This is the most important first step because what you apply to your skin each day is essential to having healthy skin and seeing results. Secondary is identifying which skincare treatments will address your skin needs. There is no one-size-fits-all model. Some clients will only need to start an effective skincare program at home while others will need to undergo treatments to address their skin goals and needs. Dedicate a year to your skin health and you will see it flourish.
