The SSD Cosmetic Consult Process

The SSD Cosmetic Consult Process

Wonder how we approach cosmetic consults? Here's everything you need to know and can expect!

How SSD conducts cosmetic consults:

Thorough discussion regarding physiology of aging specific to patient, patient’s cosmetic goals, and the treatments we offer to meet those goals. Skin care, injectables, and lasers/peels are all discussed. At end of discussion, a packet containing all pertinent information from consult is given to patients for them to look over at home, and decide how they would like to proceed with accomplishing treatment plan. A 2 week complimentary followup is scheduled to discuss how they are doing with skin care regimen and clarify any questions they may have had at previous appointment.

What information you can expect to leave with: 

Patients are given a folder with a summary of recommended treatments, prices, and handouts on each treatment including pre and post care.

Why we recommend doing a cosmetic consult: 

At the cosmetic consult, we create a “shopping list” of treatment options tailored specifically to each patient. Recommended order of procedures is discussed as well. The patient feels empowered and educated in making their cosmetic decisions through understanding of injectables and expectations of results for each procedure.

Fun fact: 

In Hannah's consults, she uses calipers to map out each patient’s face and establish their ideal proportions. These calipers are designed using the golden ratio, which has been recognized for centuries from the pyramids in Giza, to the Parthenon, to Michelangelo’s and DaVinci’s paintings. This ensures we are making recommendations based on harmonious proportions which are based on an objective idea of beauty.
