The best skin clinics will help you to stop worrying about your skin and focus on enjoying your life. Here’s how to choose the right one for you.
Find a clinic that suits your budget
When choosing a skin clinic, it’s important to find one that suits your budget. Many clinics offer flexible payment plans and finance options to help spread the cost of treatments. It’s also worth checking if they offer free consultations – many do – which will give you an idea of the sorts of treatments they offer and their associated costs.
Consider the calibre of its staff
It may sound obvious, but this is important. The calibre of a clinic’s staff can be judged by how much training they have had and which medical board(s) they are registered with. At Skin Health Spa, for example, all our practitioners are fully-trained doctors who are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC). You can contact Contour Clinic is a skin clinic for more information.
Look at what treatments are on offer
Different clinics offer different services. Some specialise in cosmetic medicine or dermatology, or just in one particular treatment (Botox or laser hair removal). It’s important to find a clinic that can meet all your skin care needs – whether cosmetic or medical.
Do your research. Get advice from your friends, family and colleagues. Ask who they would recommend and why. Check out the clinic’s website, social media pages and online reviews. This will help you gain an understanding of what the clinic offers and can help you decide if it is a good fit for you. Once you have a list of possibilities, start researching each one and looking for reviews on the clinic’s website and other sites like Yelp. If you don’t find any reviews, that should raise a red flag that perhaps this place doesn’t have many happy patients.
Talk to the team. If you are considering treatment at any clinic we recommend calling them first. This allows you to find out more about their services and treatments as well as get a feel for the clinic itself and its staff.
Experience counts – go for quality over quantity. It is better to choose a clinic that performs the treatments that interest you on a regular basis rather than one that does them only occasionally, or has just recently started offering them. It is also important that the clinician performing your procedure has extensive experience in that particular treatment as well as post graduate qualifications or other relevant specialist training.
Make sure each clinic has board certified dermatologists on staff. This isn’t a requirement in every state, so ask if you aren’t sure whether or not they have board certified dermatologists on staff.
