Five Questions You Should Ask Your Client

Written by Florence Barrett-Hill on July 20th, 2015.      0 comments

Performing a treatment without a thorough consultation is like baking a cake without a recipe!


Here are five quick questions you should ask to determine the protocols or contraindications of daily and clinical care for your client.

1. How old is your client?

Rationale of asking this question is to determine the level of cellular ageing. This will:
  • dictate the modality choice.
  • determine how many treatments may be necessary to get a result.
  • dictate the success of clinical service.

2. Does your client have the ability to tan?

Rationale of asking this question is because no client will get to adult life without knowing whether or not their skin can tan.
  • The longer a skin can spend in the sun unprotected without burning is an indication of having a long burn time and the ability to tan.
  • This is an indication the skin is high risk for pigmentation.

3. Does your client have the red hair gene within their maternal or paternal family history?
The rational of this question is to determine if the client has a risk for skin cancer.


4. What is the genetic history of your client?

The rationale of this question is to determine their photo-type without testing. Photo types high 3 to 6 come with the risk of:
  • pigmentation
  • post inflammatory pigmentation
  • vitiligo 
  • keloid scarring

5. Does your client have any of the following conditions? 
  • eczema
  • allergic contact dermatitis
  • irritant dermatitis
  • history of asthma or allergies
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • psoriasis
The rationale of this question will determine the skin is high risk for barrier disorders and an inflammatory response.

Please Note:

If your client answers YES to any or all of these questions then you would choose the protocols or
contraindications for ‘high risk’; in other words: what we used to call "diffused redness or sensitive", irrespective of oil flow or other skin conditions visually present.

Sensitivity ALWAYS takes priority!
