WHY DO I NEED A CONSULTATION?
Many times, when we meet new clients, they have certain symptoms they want to see improved, like wrinkles, excess fat, fatigue or brain fog, or pain with sex. They may also have a possible treatment plan in mind.
The goal of our consultation is to learn what are the most important issue you want to see improved and to create a proper, safe treatment plan to help you reach those goals. Through the process of an in-person assessment, we are able to discuss your goals and expectations, health and safety, budget, and design a treatment plan that will work best for you.
Secondly, the consultation is the best chance for you to get to know us! We know that discussing concerns and choosing a treatment plan is deeply personal, so we create an environment that is relaxed and personal. We will share our extensive knowledge and also let you know the scope of services that we offer, and how they may best be used to enhance your life.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY CONSULTATION?
We have patients consulting with us for a variety of concerns:
Skin issues such as sun spots, redness, acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles
Sagging skin around jowls, on the neck, or on the body
Weight gain and weight reduction options
Hormone imbalance causing fatigue, low libido, hot flashes and weight gain
Vaginal issues like dryness, painful intercourse, or loss of sensation
Urinary urgency, leakage, or night time urination
Difficulty with orgasm
We are happy to address these issues and more! About 5 days prior to your consult, you should receive an email with a link to our patient portal. There you can fill in all necessary paperwork prior to your visit. This includes a full medical history, which is always critical in providing you with the safest and best care. Depending on your concerns, there are also forms asking about the types of symptoms you are noticing, and what treatments or therapies you may have tried in the past.
It can seem like a lot of information up front, but having a complete background about you helps us make the most of our consultation time. We can now focus our time on education about what YOU feel is important. Plus, our consultation will include:
A Visia full facial photo-analysis; these photos of your skin layers will help you to quantify issues like wrinkles, sun damage, redness, pore size, and acne bacteria (for skin consultations)
A detailed pelvic examination, to uncover muscle tone, pelvic organ prolapse, and the quality of the vaginal tissue (for consults regarding intimate issues and sexual health)
Bloodwork and EKG evaluation (for patients proceeding with hormonal therapy or weight loss treatments)
CAN I RECEIVE A TREATMENT ON THE SAME DAY AS MY CONSULTATION?
If timing permits, yes! We try to be as flexible as possible when working consultations turned first treatments into the schedule. However our providers may recommend planning, testing or products that are needed prior to a treatment. This pre-treatment planning is critical for the best outcome.
CAN YOU JUST GIVE ME PRICING OVER THE PHONE?
We avoid discussing price over the phone because there are so many variances that may make pricing vary from client to client. Very often, clients need combination treatments involving more than one procedure, and pricing reflects this. To put it simply: our pricing between clients is just as unique as our treatment plans, so pricing can only be determined accurately during the consultation.
THE POWER OF A CONSULTATION
Sometimes our clients are surprised to learn that what they thought they wanted at the start of the consultation is very different than what they actually book! For example, a client may come in thinking they want to get some Botox for fine lines and wrinkles. During consultation, we may discover that the real issue is loss of facial volume and sagging skin on the face. While Botox alone may provide some improvement, the best outcome might be a facial treatment to lift skin and build collagen and elastin for longer-lasting results. A treatment plan addressing the root of the issue is always what we look for with our clients!
