This Is Your

Skincare Consultation Journey

Upon entering our practice, you will be greeted by a member of our team. Our waiting area is designed to immediately put you at ease while you enjoy our signature scent, beautiful ocean views and a refreshment of your choice. Here you will also be informed on the steps we will follow with your consultation.

Our practice prides itself on being completely paperless. While you enjoy your refreshment, you will be asked to complete any further information we require from you before we embark on your journey. Once completed you will be taken to a private room for further preparation.

Once in your private room, we will present you with the required sanitising protocols as well as a clean and fresh space within which you can comfortably remove your make-up and prepare for your consultation ahead.

A face wash is of utmost importance to your consultation as this creates a blank canvas for our specialists to study during your consultation and allows the Next Motion Photography and VISIA Skin Analysis to provide us with accurate information and results.

Once your preparation is complete, you will be taken to our VISIA Skin Analysis room to take detailed images. VISIA scans measure your skin pigmentation, pore size, and porphyrins (evidence of bacteria lodged in pores). It also scans UV spots, sun damage, texture, and wrinkles. With this skin assessment, we can compare your skin condition within your peer group.

This VISIA Skin Analysis consultation is completed with one of our experienced Skincare Specialists for you to discuss and analyse your skincare concerns and to assist in providing you with bespoke advice and recommendations for a truly individualised treatment/home care plan.

Once your assessments are complete you will be guided to a consultation or treatment room to continue your journey with one of our specialists where you will have ample time to discuss all your concerns and goals.

We pride ourselves on affording our patients the best service through their journey with us.
