Virtual Skin Health Transformation Consultations FAQs

  • I HAVE BUDGET LIMITATIONS, IS THIS CONSULTATION A GOOD OPTION FOR ME IF I CAN’T AFFORD TO PURSUE MEDICAL SPA TREATMENTS?

    Absolutely! I will be sensitive to your budget concerns and tailor my advice to what you can comfortably afford. This is an area I can be very helpful; it is easy to lose money on experimenting with different skincare products and at-home treatments. My careful analysis of your needs and financially sensitive recommendations could certainly help you save substantial money in the long run and achieve your realistic skin health goals. 

  • WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE VIRTUAL SKIN HEALTH TRANSFORMATION CONSULTATION?

    I will take into consideration your medical history and everything we discussed then create a thoughtful analysis of your skin type and needs. I will create both a daily and long-term plan for achieving your personal skin health goals. I will also recommend based on careful research qualified medical spas in your area if you want to pursue that route. 

  • WHAT ELSE DO I NEED FOR THE VIRTUAL SKIN HEALTH CONSULTATION?

    A valid email address to communicate directly with me through. A stable internet connection, well-lit room, and a device capable of using Skype or FaceTime.

  • I’M IN MY 20’S, DO I NEED TO BE WORRYING ABOUT MY SKIN AGING ALREADY?

    Absolutely! The younger you start taking care of your skin, the better the results will be as you get older.  There are certain steps everyone should be taking during each decade of their life to maintain beautiful, healthy skin. Ask anyone you know over 40 how it feels when someone guesses their age to be younger than it is, and that will be all the proof you need to start your serious skin health investment young. 

  • WHY DO I NEED TO HAVE THE SKIN CARE PRODUCTS I AM CURRENTLY USING FOR THE CONSULTATION?

    The products you are currently using could be an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to your skin issues and concerns. I will do an unbiased assessment of the products and their ingredients taking into account my assessment of your skin type and issues then give you my evaluation.  Something you are currently using could be contributing to your problems and may inhibit you from achieving your skin health goals. My comprehensive analysis and recommendations of products tailored to your unique needs will ensure that you are using the best products possible. 

  • How should I prepare my skin for your Virtual Skin Health Transformation Consultation?

    Clean makeup-free skin is best so that I can get the most accurate view of your skin possible.

  • If I consult with you, does that mean I don’t need to see a dermatologist?

    Virtual Skin Health Transformation Consultations are not meant to be a replacement for medical care.  There is the possibility that my evaluation of your skin and recommendations could help you avoid having to go to a dermatologist.  If you are at the point of needing to see a doctor, that will certainly be one of my recommendations. While under the care of a dermatologist my consultations can provide you with extra attention and information you need to treat your skin issue. Imagine walking out of a dermatologist’s office after having been diagnosed with a skin condition and prescribed medication, all the questions that will start flooding your mind now that you are away from your doctor. This is where I step in and relieve your stress. Through our consultation, I will answer your questions and help you figure out ways to improve your condition and comfort on a day to day basis.

  • What do you mean when you say that you will review my lifestyle?

    There are many factors that impact the health and appearance of our skin. It goes much deeper and far more complex than just what we see in the mirror.  Your exposure to sun and efforts (or lack of) to protect your self from sun damage will be a top priority for me. Diet and nutrition will also be covered as there are many foods that can exacerbate certain skin conditions, and of course, we all want to know about the foods that can help reduce the signs of aging.
