Skin Analysis and Consultation
By Sheryl Pilcher on April 06, 2018
When it comes to professional skin treatments, what works for one patient may not work for another. Because each patient is vastly unique, extra care must be taken when developing a treatment plan. That is why we perform a thorough skin analysis and consultation when you visit our San Antonio, TX practice.
At Accent Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sheryl Pilcher and team are committed to providing the highest quality care possible. That is why we strive to deliver fully personalized treatments for predictable outcomes.
What Happens during a Skin Consultation?
During a skin consultation at our practice, Dr. Pilcher will sit down with you and listen to your aesthetic concerns. We believe that getting to know our patients is key in providing effective care.
Therefore, we will discuss your complete health history, including any current medications you may be taking and any skincare products you are routinely using. Because all of these factors can contribute to the condition of the skin, it is important to have a thorough understanding of your medical background.
Why Is Skin Analysis an Important Part of Your Consultation?
What you see on the surface of the skin is not always what is happening underneath. That is why a thorough skin analysis is crucial for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
To perform your analysis, a clinician will cover the eyes with cooling cotton pads and examine your skin under magnification and bright lights. In addition to assessing your pigmentation and skin tone, we will also be able to visualize any skin imperfections, such as wrinkles, sun spots, acne blemishes, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and even precancerous lesions.
What Can Be Determined with a Skin Analysis?
Skin analysis helps us establish the present condition of your skin and determine the most appropriate treatment. In addition to comprehending what is going on with your skin, we will have a better understanding of why it is happening as well. As a result, we can recommend the most effective products and treatments for a dramatic outcome.
How Often Should Skin Analysis Be Conducted?
Depending on environmental and lifestyle factors, skin health can change dramatically in just a few months’ time. Therefore, skin analysis should really be performed seasonally if feasible.
As you progress through your recommended treatment plan, we will work with you to tweak and fine-tune your regimen as cell health improves. Of course, like all good things, skin fitness takes time. Although it can be difficult to muster the patience necessary for long-term treatment, it is important to trust that your personalized plan is working from the inside out to reveal healthier, younger-looking skin.
When Should Patients Consider Undergoing a Skin Analysis and Consultation?
Essentially anyone can choose to undergo a skin analysis at our practice. However, we find that the individuals who are dedicated to self-care and loving one’s body tend to benefit most from this treatment. We understand that choosing to spend money on cosmetic treatments is a significant decision. That is why we work with our patients to discover a budget-friendly, effective treatment that they can sustain.
