It is highly advisable to carry out a Skin Consultation with a Client before performing any treatment.
When carrying out a Skin Treatment Consultation it is advisable that the client fills out a Consultation form and Signs the form prior to any treatments. A Skin consultation card is used to find out if there are any contraindications which may prevent you from carrying out any treatment.
