Before undergoing any form of at our clinic in Cambridge it’s important to know what to expect from a skin rejuvenation consultation. At Cosmex Clinic, we appreciate it may be a little daunting to undergo treatments to refresh the face and how you feel about your appearance – but it needn’t be.

Here’s some questions and tips when seeking a skin rejuvenation consultation. Contact us if you wish to know more information.
Is this particular skin rejuvenation treatment right for you?
To understand what to expect from your consultation, it’s helpful to do a little research prior to both deciding on your treatment and booking the appointment at our clinic.
It’s helpful to have an idea of what you believe your specific areas of concern to be, and to have a rough idea of what the type of treatment you want will cost. Is it affordable? Will it improve how you feel about your appearance? The goal is always to enhance and bring out the best in you; not to change you.
During the consultation, we will take on board your aesthetic concerns and your aspirations, and then tailor a skin rejuvenation treatment plan to address your needs. No one size fits all approaches – just a bespoke plan for you.
This may include offering a different form of treatment from what you initially expected (e.g. you may require dermal fillers to improve facial volume, rather than muscle relaxing injections which will likely only prevent new lines from forming) or a combination of several non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to get the best, most natural result.
Ask questions and take the time to know your options
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you want to know how many years your chosen medical expert has been performing a treatment – just ask.
If you’re feeling confused or nervous about any part of a skin rejuvenation treatment make sure you speak up – the consultation is not just about meeting your aesthetic expert; it’s about your satisfaction and happiness in the long term.
Recovery and results
Don’t forget to ask about the recovery times, as you’ll need to factor this into your decision making process. Perhaps explain why you are considering a specific treatment, to allow your aesthetic expert to tailor your treatment plan further and take into account your lifestyle.
Remember you can ask about the results in advance – how long will they last; will you need top-up treatments to maintain the results. While each patient is different and results vary, your practitioner will be able to guide you.
Wrinkle relaxing injections, for example, are great at keeping lines and wrinkles at bay as a skin rejuvenation treatment, but if you want to maintain the look it’s not a one-off process. You’ll require repeat treatments every 3-6 months.
Risks and rewards
Why not ask about the risks and the rewards of treatments such as dermal fillers or chemical skin peels? Non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments, for example, are relatively low risk compared to surgical alternatives, but as with all cosmetic treatments there are some risks and side effects you should take into consideration.
Always ask about the associated risks with your chosen skin rejuvenation treatment and go away to think it over – go with your gut instinct. If you don’t feel that particular skin rejuvenation treatment is right for you, after a consultation, you aren’t obliged to undergo it.
