we offer treatments for a wide range of medical & aesthetic concerns
Patients come to Berkshire Aesthetics for a myriad of reasons, a complex mix of physical ailments or emotional discomfort triggered by certain aspects of their appearance. Not everyone perceives ‘normal’ in the same way and our consultation process is designed to identify the factors which influence how a patient has come to seek treatment in the first place. For the uninitiated, a medical aesthetic clinic is often seen as being like a beauty salon but this is a simplistic take on an emerging field of medicine.
The line where medicine ends and beauty begins is blurry but what is not is how a patient feels about themselves. The image we present to the world is under increased scrutiny with social media, celebrity, fashion, magazines all promoting image ideals. And while aesthetics and the treatments we offer can be used for cosmetic purposes we are very careful to ensure that when offering treatment it is for the right reasons.
Whether we are treating a skin disease such as acne, a disorder such as excessive sweating, or an injury such as a scar it is important that we consider the emotional wellbeing of the person presenting. At the end of the day, one person’s vanity is another’s whole world. Every patient who presents with a concern is assessed and treated as an individual and their needs are assessed and treated to ensure that their physical, as well as their emotional wellbeing, is protected.
