We get it — you come see us, you’re spending your hard-earned money on skin care products and treatments.
You want to know when you’re going to see results.
Let’s start with skin care products. Depending on what you’re using, it takes time for your skin to build up tolerance to certain ingredients, and sometimes you have to get past a certain point to see the benefits.
At Skin Pharm, you will always be seen by an Advanced Practice Provider, either a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant, specializing in cosmetic dermatology. Our providers are trained in specialties such as dermatology and plastic surgery and are experts when it comes to aesthetic medicine.
What does the $125 deposit for a skin consult go toward?
The $125 deposit goes toward your visit with one of Skin Pharm’s Advanced Practice Providers. During this visit, we will review your history, assess your skin, discuss concerns and develop a plan. Your deposit can be applied to any product or treatment purchase during your visit, too!
What if I do not purchase anything at this appointment?
The $125 deposit will then go toward your provider’s time. We hope you find the skin consult valuable and find a product routine or treatment plan suitable for you!
I’m pregnant or breastfeeding. Can I use Skin Pharm skin care products?
We generally recommend use of all products except retinoids and hydroquinone during pregnancy or breastfeeding. We recommend receiving clearance from your OBGYN prior to using any skin care while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Skin care minimalists, skin care enthusiasts and those concerned with:
Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event if you intend on receiving a treatment at your appointment. Please see specific treatment pages for the treatment you desire and more specific pre- and post-treatment tips.
Arriving with a bare face is helpful for us to properly assess your skin. If you are unable to come without makeup, you can wash your face upon arriving.
Adherence to your prescribed Skin Pharm routine is critical for achieving clinical improvement. We recommend using your skin care routine like you would any prescription medication (i.e. use products as instructed and use at frequency prescribed) by your provider.
Due to the skin cell turnover rate, we recommended waiting a full 8-12 before follow-up to determine if your skin care routine and treatment plan need any adjustments.
Adjustments to the routine may be needed. This is normal! Schedule an appointment to discuss with your provider.
Skin concerns such as acne and rosacea typically recur, and maintenance therapy is an important component of skin health management. Please continue to make regular appointments with your provider for maintenance.
