Booking a Microdermabrasion Consultation

You can easily book a consultation for your microdermabrasion treatment.  Appointments can be made either online or over the phone.  Often if you sign up for a course of treatments the consultation will be included in the cost or will be free. 

During your Microdermabrasion Consultation

Your practitioner will want to give you a real insight into how microdermabrasion works and the benefits it can do your skin.  They will talk you through the procedure, explain any preparation that you ought to undertake before the treatment and also advice you on anything that might aid your recovery.

The initial consultation will allow your practitioner to make a detailed note of your skin and the problems that you want to focus upon.  They will discuss your skin type and tone, any scars or wrinkles that are apparent and between you decide how many treatments will be necessary to produce the results that you desire. 

When you have your consultation you need to be completely honest with your pracitioner with regards to your health and your expectations of the procedure.  It is possible that your expectations of microdermabrasion may be too high, but an alternative treatment would be able to achieve what you want.  Be sure to voice any concerns that you might have about the procedure, your practitioner will be glad to put your mind at ease and reassure you of the safety of microdermabrasion. 

Your consultation, as well as an opportunity for your practitioner to meet and discuss the method with you, is a chance for you to verify their qualifications and training.  It is not unreasonable to ask about their experience, in fact it is a very responsible thing to do.  If you wish they are likely to be able to show you photos of other peoples microdermabrasion results so that you can see the effect that the treatment has had on others. 

Your consultation will also allow you to visit the clinic or centre that you are going to be having the treatment in, and see the medical equipment and how it is kept.  The steralisation of microdermabrasion equipment is important to the prevention of infection, so asking some questions about this would also be a good idea.
