Choosing a practitioner and your skin treatment - what to look for and expect

Choosing the right practitioner

Whatever treatment you are looking for, first and foremost choose a practitioner who is medically trained. This includes nurses and doctors. Check their qualifications, insurance and ask about the numbers of treatments they have done. Many are happy to discuss this with you.

Although non-medical people are carrying out these treatments, which is not illegal, there are associated risks. Medically trained personnel work to a Code of Conduct (ethics), and are normally registered to practice.

Be wary of anyone who gives you the 'hard sell'. The treatment options should be fully and clearly explained and you should be allowed time to consider them before consenting to treatment.

Choosing the right treatment

The cheapest treatment is not necessarily the best treatment. You are not purchasing a retail product but a service. Your practitioner may have spent years building up expertise and experience in this specialty and this experience has a cost.

The risks and benefits will be fully explained. You will be asked about your medical history and a consent form signed.

The premises must be clean and tidy and fit for purpose.

Aftercare

Aftercare is also extremely important and you will be asked if you would like a follow-up appointment.
