What Does a Cosmetic Consultation Include?
Cosmetic and healthy skincare are the most effective ways to enhance your natural beauty and to prevent further skin damage.
Gulf Coast Medical Center Cosmetics offers consultations for all cosmetic procedures and skincare offered at our office. A consultation includes a complete evaluation of your skin history, depicting your skin care concerns and goals, and a treatment and skincare regimen based on those areas evaluated. The treatment and skincare options will be described in-depth to you by our cosmetic consultant so that you understand all of the necessary information for beginning the recommended regimen. This information includes, but is not limited to, description of the treatment, pre- and post- treatment protocols, risks and side effects, costs, and before and after examples. The consultation is designed to provide you with all of the information necessary for you to feel most comfortable in receiving the benefits of these treatments and skincare programs.
If an area of concern is not treatable with the technology and therapies available at Gulf Coast Medical Center Cosmetics, we will refer you to a qualified professional in that field.
During your consultation your options will be discussed and the differences in each person available to perform the recommended treatment so you can decide which treatment is best for you.
There is a $100 fee for a 60-minute consultation. This fee covers the initial consultation, before and after photo sessions, and your follow-up consultation to evaluate the degree of improvement. Consultation fee will be applied towards cost of treatment (must equal $350 or more) and used within 60 days. Please understand that we will generally need to perform a full consultation before beginning any cosmetic treatment. Patients who have been treated with botulinum toxin and injectable fillers in the past are seen for a shorter consultation time.
