Why a Consultation is a Must

Here at Raw Canvas a consultation is the first step we recommend when you’re seeking to achieve healthier skin. A consultation is a must in our clinic, and one we feel very strongly about.

The consultation allows you to gain insight on what is best for your individual needs and concerns. It opens the door to building a relationship with us and allows you to develop trust and confidence in our recommendations. You'll know why you are buying products. This is very important. 

We often have new clients visit who have previously had treatments or bought skincare without really knowing why. Our goal is to provide education and understanding so when you leave you have a clear path and understanding as to what your skin health journey looks like.

We recommend skin consultations to every new client. It’s the only way we can provide you with our expert advice and help you achieve your desired results. It’s a crucial part to the foundations of achieving results.

A consultation is recommended even if you are only considering treatment. We won't try to sell you a boat load of products you don't need (promise!). Sometimes clients are so excited to get treatment, but after analyzing their skin we know that they could get better results from product. Other times we notice that the patient's skin may not prepped properly for treatment (won't get as good results).

In addition, if you express interest in treatment during your consultation it gives us a chance to spot treat you (if needed) so that we know your skin doesn't react negatively before a full treatment. 

All in all, a consultation only benefits you. It is a chance for you to ask an expert all your questions and express all of your concerns. The consultation fee goes towards future purchases. 

Walking you through a consultation at Raw Canvas: 

Step 1: Filling Out Consultation Form: 

A consultation form will be emailed prior to you on arrival, this form contains general and lifestyle information, medical history and current skin routine questions. This form gives us an indication of how you’re currently looking after your skin, what could be causing certain concerns and any medication we need to be aware of. 

To save time, you are able to complete this form at home or on a mobile device. 

Step 2: Photos

Once you arrive at Raw Canvas our Front End Coordinator will take picture of your skin for our records. We take photos of every new and existing client - it’s a great way to see the progression of your skin along your journey to skin health!

Step 3: The Discussion: 

This step is the most important for us, this is where we are able to connect with you and learn what your goals are. We discuss your skin history, health, lifestyle, current skincare routine and several other factors that could be contributing. There is always a reason as to why the skin is in a state that has brought you through our doors.

 

Step 4: Visual Analysis: 

This step allows us to visually see concerns such as pigmentation, rosacea, oil production, dehydration, acne, congestion, dryness and many more. Most patients suffer from trans epidermal water loss. This can happen from using products that strip the skin causing irritation, dryness, break outs, sensitivity...the list goes on.

Starting what we like to call "GSR" (getting skin ready) regimen often results in a visible difference 10-14 days after visiting us.

Step 5: Recommendations: 

Skin consultations can be overwhelming with information, we always approach the skin with medical grade skin care which allows us to achieve the best results, but it can be a lot to take in on your first visit.

To make this process easier for you, we always email what has been discussed during your consultation along with your customized regimen. There should never be unanswered questions or confusion.

Helping you along during your skin journey is our passion. We connect with every client that visits and love bringing you towards your skin health goals. You have full access to email us anytime with questions or concerns and a follow up will be done 4 weeks after your initial consultation.

This is what makes Raw Canvas different. Here, skin health is accessible to everyone.
