Consultation Process

consultationThe first step in transforming your skin’s health and wellness is an expert skin evaluation to understand your skin’s true condition. We assess both the visible surface and sub-surface characteristics. Understanding the underlying pigmentation and vascular features helps us develop treatment recommendations best suited to your skin’s specific needs.

Your consultation process includes a comprehensive medical history, treatment area analysis, photographic assessment and a treatment plan. We take great care to understand your concerns and assess the underlying causes. We will guide you through treatment choices, pros, cons and alternatives. You will have ample opportunity to discuss possible treatment in a supportive environment.

As well as a complete assessment of your skin condition we make available a non-surgical evaluation process called BEAUTIPHICATION based on the principle of nature called the “Golden Ratio”. By measuring the ratio between facial features, we can systematically design a treatment program unique to each individual rather than subjectively guessing what procedures might be best for you. Our goal is to balance the symmetry of our client’s facial anatomy to produce a natural and subtle enhancement.

In summary, we strive to listen to your concerns and what you would like to improve. A critical part of the consultation process is the discussion of the possible risks involved. We feel it is mandatory that a clear explanation of any inherent treatment risks be fully explained.
We want you to know, to be informed, to understand your choice to participate in aesthetic treatments. We are conservative by practice and we encourage our clients to be conservative as well. Small increments! That’s our motto.


If you have access to a printer, please print out and complete the New Aesthetic Client Information Questionnaire and bring it with you to your first visit. If you have photos from a younger time in your life that you would like to share, we always appreciate seeing those as they can be valuable in assessing realistic goals for facial enhancement.

Out of Town Clients/Virtual Consultation


Coming from out of the area? We have many out-of-area clients at White Salmon Family Practice,. They love the convenience, comfort, privacy and cost savings of having their procedures done in our friendly, comfortable office. In fact several of our clients build their annual Columbia Gorge vacations around their visits to our clinic.

To maximize your visit with us, we offer “virtual consultation” services prior to your arrival. We can assess your needs, develop an estimated plan and associated costs. Upon physically meeting you, we can make adjustments the day of your visit. We think you’ll find that our location has plenty of options for exploring, lodging, entertainment and dining venues. If you’re planning a trip to the Columbia Gorge for a weekend or a summer, call us! We’d love to see you!
