Frequently Asked Questions
What Is A Master Esthetician?
A master esthetician is an esthetic professional who underwent extended training which included some basic medical education in skin conditions. Their enhanced education and experienced certify them to perform certain procedures that a traditional esthetician cannot. This includes procedures such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
Our master estheticians are all licensed and board certified. Combined they have decades of experience and have worked with patients of varying skin tones, types, gender identities, and ages.
How Long Is A Skin Consultation At Seattle Plastic Surgery?
A skin consult with a master esthetician at Seattle Plastic Surgery is generally about thirty minutes, but can go up to one hour. Using a combination of your pre-appointment paperwork and discussion, your master esthetician can quickly help you determine the right treatments for you. The consultation is only in-office.
What Is Done During A Skin Consult?
Most of a complimentary skin consultation appointment is a discussion about your skin goals, concerns, routines, and treatments. Your master esthetician will also review your medical history provided via your paperwork. If they have any questions, they will bring this up during your discussion.
Your master esthetician will also perform a brief examination of your skin. They particularly focus on the face and any other areas you may want to address. They take all of the time necessary to answer your questions and explore all treatment options. We want you to leave feeling more confident in your skin regimen and treatment plan.
Can I Wear Makeup To The Appointment?
You can. However, we prefer that you do not so that your master esthetician can see your bare, natural skin. This will help them create a more accurate and effective treatment plan for you. One compromise is that you can usually wear eye makeup as well as your normal skincare and sunscreen.
Do You Only Treat The Face?
No, our master estheticians can treat concerns in almost any area of the body. Outside of laser hair removal and laser tattoo removal which can be performed anywhere, we also treat scarring on the body, stretch marks, and other special cases.
