We enable you to make the decision for yourself based on what feels right for you. If we don’t have the right treatment for you, or if we know the treatment you are requesting won’t be suitable for the outcomes you want, we will also advise you of this. We never sell unnecessary treatments.
This leads to our Dermal Plan service which considers a ‘whole person’ approach works to your needs. Our medical, nutritional and beauty aesthetician team works with the patient to assess their overall skin health and nutrition. We are then able to develop your Dermal Plan that includes all the relevant treatments and products to help you to look and feel your best.
Our approach starts with your consultation
We pay for a free half an hour consultation for you. Perhaps the most important aspect of cosmetic medicine. It is very important that you get an honest, informed opinion on whether or not the discussed treatment can achieve your expectations. You as a patient will have certain expectations of what you want to achieve from your treatment and you should express your expectations as clearly as possible. A trained cosmetic physician has to identify what can and cannot be achieved with the treatment and will explain this to you as clearly as possible. If you require further time to discuss in more depth your requirements a charge of £150 per hour will be charged that can be offset against any treatments booked.
The stages of a consultation are as follows:
Medical History & Clinical Examination
Initially Dr Berkowtiz or the most relevant team member will take a full medical history of your previous health problems, current medication, known allergies, smoking and alcohol intake, details about your lifestyle etc to understand why you want the procedure and what it is that you wish to achieve and if it is safe to undertake the treatment. Dr. Berkowitz will then undertake a careful examination to identify what needs to be done in order to achieve your goals. A series of photographs will be taken to record the pre-treatment appearance and for planning purposes.
After the consultation, it is your choice if you want to have the procedure at the time of your consultation or you may book your procedure at a later date. If you require a further consultation to discuss in more detail, the cost for this can be taken off your treatment cost.

Trust your own feelings and go with your instincts.
