Consultations and Fees
At your your first skin consultation, our staff will review your skin concerns and goals, medical history and relevant lifestyle factors. We will discuss your treatment options and with your help customise a treatment plan for you. We only suggest treatments we have tried or would use ourselves and review progress every 3-4 months- we don’t want you to waste your money on unproven expensive treatments.
We offer consultations in person at our clinic, at a few select satellite clinics and over the phone or via Skype. Your customised cosmeceuticals, medication scripts and practitioner - only Synergie products can be mailed directly to your home or office.
Dr Grant sees clients in person and via Skype and works with our laser therapist on a Thursday afternoon. She also runs a dermatology, laser and cosmetic clinic monthly in the rooms above Bulli Medical Practice. If you have a medical condition, such as acne, rosacea or hyperpigmentation, a medicare rebate may be applicable for face- to- face appointments and some laser treatments. Cosmetic and Skype consultations do not attract a medicare rebate.
We are professionals and our time, like yours, is valuable. A fee of $50 fee will be taken upon confirmation of your appointments. This fee will act as a cancellation fee if you cancel less than 48 hours prior to your appointment but can be redeemed against any product or service you use in the clinic. Deposits can be transferred to a later date if advised with enough notice.
Everyone’s skin is unique and responds differently to treatment. Results vary from one patient to another but with decades of experience we can advise on typical results.
