The purpose of this program is to establish the factors that are contributing to your skin issues (dietary, genetic, hormonal, digestive, chemical etc) and create individual solutions so that your skin has the opportunity to heal.
As part of this program, you should experience not only improved skin health but also improved overall health. You will understand what factors contribute to your skin problems and a tailored treatment plan will be developed for you.
Why a 6 month program? Realistically any less and you may not get lasting skin healing. Experience working with clients with skin problems over 10 years has taught me that ‘overnight’ results are often short-lived, particularly if the underlying causes are not addressed.
At the end of the Healthy Skin Program you will:
- Have clearer, healthier skin
- Be able to see and track clear improvement over a 6 month period
- Experience improved wellbeing and overall health
- Understand what underlying causes impact your skin and know how to manage them
- Know what foods support your skin, and those that don’t
- Have an individual at-home care program that suits your skin
- Know what topical products suit your skin and how to choose them
- Have mindfulness and self-care strategies in place to support your overall health
The Healthy Skin Program involves working together for 6 months, which entails at least 6 visits over this period. The structure of the program is outlined below:
Initial Appointment – 60 minutes
This appointment is the longest as involves taking a detailed case history, determining any testing that is required and the use of questionnaires and skin examination to ascertain baseline skin health. This appointment determines how we move forward and so requires detailed health and skin evaluation. Preliminary treatment recommendations will be made at this stage and in some cases referrals for further testing may be recommended.
Supplements can and do assist with treatment progress and as such may be recommended but their inclusion depends on client preference.
Second Appointment – 45 minutes, two weeks after the Initial
The second appointment is scheduled 2 weeks later and at this stage skin health goal are set, a comprehensive treatment plan is established and treatment planning for the next 5 visits is determined. As part of the second appointment a check in by phone or email may be recommended to provide support or monitor skin progress.
Third to Fifth Appointments
Appointments from here are approximately monthly for 30 minutes. At each appointment progress and goals are reviewed, any adjustments are made as necessary and information about self-care, graded exercise, topical skin care, mindfulness, dietary changes and environmental resources are discussed. To monitor progress between visits various tracking forms will be utilised.
At this appointment, ongoing care is established for skin and overall well-being if necessary. Additional appointments can be made at this stage as per client discretion.
Appointment fees are charged at each appointment. Supplements and additional testing costs are clearly outlined as required and agreed upon with the client.
