Planning for Superficial Skin Treatments
Whether you’re planning a surgical or nonsurgical skin treatment, it’s important that you find a doctor who has training and experience with a variety of skin-management techniques. You’ll want a doctor who can give you the best possible single treatment or treatment combination. Look elsewhere if your doctor tells you that he or she has perfected a single technique that promises unbelievable results. The choice is yours, but be certain your doctor is qualified and certified to prescribe such treatments. After all, these treatments involve the most visible part of your body – your face.
As with searching out a well qualified physician, finding a well educated licensed esthetician with experience is also very important.

In your initial consultation, be open in discussing your treatment goals and don’t hesitate to ask any questions or express any concerns you may have. A consultation will explain the factors that could influence your choice of treatment options such as age, skin condition, as well as previous plastic surgeries.
It is unlikely that you’ll have to spend much time in the office for your skin treatment unless the treatment is performed in conjunction with a facelift or some other more complex procedure.
