Aesthetic practitioners work diligently to perfect the depth of the needle injection, find the right products regimen, and create a perfect before and after visual. However, the true work of an aesthetic nurse lies in the conversations we have with our patients. Consultation may be overlooked by practitioners who are starting out and consultation is almost always the first item to be put aside by patients seeking aesthetic treatments. It is imperative for aestheticians to incorporate an effective consultation into the patient experience. The longevity of your career lives in the effectiveness of your patient consultation. This article explores the aesthetic consultation process and evaluates the importance of providing meaningful conversation that includes the patient while also managing patient expectations and creating a long-term care plan. Here, I share my own concept regarding aesthetic consultation. This concept allows me to consistently create a plan of care for my patients, while building trust and longevity in my practice. The PEAK Aesthetic Consultation process incorporates four elements: Prioritize the patient story; Education and expectations; Aesthetic treatment; and Kinetic plan.
