With the growing popularity of skincare products, professional, non-invasive procedures are also becoming sought out more often. Additionally, topical skin products can only do so much for the skin, especially when it comes to more severe concerns such as wrinkles or acne. The master estheticians at Allure Esthetic offer an initial free skin consultation. You will learn about your specific skin and get recommendations on the ideal treatments. Allure Esthetic provides the best free skin consultation Seattle offers.
Overview: Skin Evaluation By A Master Esthetician
At a free skin consultation appointment, you will meet with a licensed master esthetician. First, they will review your paperwork and medical history. They may ask questions, especially if you have certain skin conditions or have had surgery in the treatment areas. From there, they may ask about aspects of your lifestyle such as how active you are, if you regularly wear sunscreen, and if you smoke.
Your master esthetician will also want to know about your specific concerns and what you hope to achieve. They will also want to know about the scope of treatment you are looking for. For example, not everyone is ready to or wants to undergo procedures and may want to stick to skincare products. Your Seattle master esthetician will customize your treatment plan based on these preferences and your skin needs.
Finally, your master esthetician will present your treatment plan to you. This may include lifestyle changes, procedures, and skincare products (both prescription or over-the-counter). They will discuss what each could do for you and if it is plausible to add to your routine.
Before you leave, you will receive a price quote for all of the procedures and products that your master esthetician provides. They may recommend services or procedures they cannot provide such as surgical procedures, injections, products, or other services.
Treatable Concerns & Conditions
Master estheticians can treat a variety of skin conditions—both cosmetic and medical. When it comes to medical skin conditions, they often treat the symptoms of the condition, but you may require other interventions. A few examples of the conditions that your Allure Esthetic master esthetician can address include:
- Acne scars
- Other scarring
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Minor skin sagging
- Unwanted hair
- Dry skin
- Rough skin texture
- Oily skin
- Stretch marks
A complimentary skin consultation with a master esthetician at Allure Esthetic carries almost no downsides. The main goal of the appointment is to help educate the patient on their specific skin and provide insight into treatments that may help them achieve their goals. Some of the benefits include:
- Understand your skin better
- Receive a customized treatment plan based on your specific concerns, skin anatomy, and needs
- Get answers to questions you may have
- Receive recommendations on the ideal skincare products for your skin

- Be evaluated as a candidate for multiple procedures at once, saving time at later appointments

Professional Skin Procedures & Treatments
The exact treatments recommended will depend on the individual patient. Below is a breakdown of some of the possible treatments your master esthetician may discuss with you.
Medical Grade Procedures
Professionally performed skin procedures such as chemical peels, microneedling, and medical-grade facials are common treatments our master estheticians suggest. These procedures can help treat a variety of concerns and conditions including those associated with aging, acne, and sun damage. Examples of these procedures include:
- Chemical Peels
- VI Peel
- RF Microneedling
- Oxygen Facial
- Laser Resurfacing
- Rain Facial
- Laser Hair Removal
Prescription Skin Products
Allure Esthetic proudly offers prescription skincare products to patients to help treat and improve the skin. While master estheticians cannot prescribe medications, they are supervised by plastic surgeons who can. They prescribe skincare products based on the master esthetician’s evaluation and their own review of the specifics. Some of these products may include:
- Brightening Cream
- Acne Triple Gel
- Ferulic Acid Serum
- Scar Protocol
- Salicylic Cleanser
It is possible that during your free skin consultation your master esthetician may consider procedures that they do not perform. For example, many people beginning to see the signs of aging desire skin tightening. However, if a patient’s skin laxity has progressed to jowling, they may benefit more from a facelift. Other possible treatments your master esthetician may suggest include:
- Dermal Filler Injections
- Tummy Tuck
- CO2 Laser Resurfacing
- Laser Facelift
Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Master Estheticians?
A master esthetician is a professional esthetician who bridges the gap between the beauty and medical sides of skincare. They can perform the same procedures as a traditional esthetician, but they specialize in more medically focused treatments and skincare. In short, they focus on both beautification and treatment of the skin.
Master estheticians also undergo enhanced training. After becoming an esthetician, they undergo additional courses and hands-on training. This certifies them to perform procedures such as laser treatments and deeper chemical peels.
Why Seek The Advice Of A Skin Professional?
Even if you follow a good routine, a master esthetician or other skin professional can help you refine it or treat specific problems. Additionally, topical skincare can only go so far in helping you achieve your goals. Our master estheticians customize treatment options specifically for your skin type, skin tone, conditions you may have, and overall health.
Will It Only Focus On My Face?
Not necessarily, if you have concerns elsewhere on your body, feel free to bring them up. Our master estheticians frequently treat areas other than the face, especially when it comes to a procedure such as laser hair removal. Microneedling is also common to treat stretch marks and scars all around the body.
Can’t An AI Do A Skin Analysis?
Yes, you may have come across software that can examine your skin and provide product or makeup recommendations. While these can be accurate and helpful, a master esthetician can address your skin on a deeper level. They also can work with Dr. Sajan to prescribe prescription-strength products.
An AI may be able to identify areas of discoloration, your skin tone, and certain skin issues, it still requires your input to understand your skin type and everyday routine. A master esthetician can understand this quicker and better than any AI.
Is There An Obligation To Make A Purchase Or Schedule A Procedure?
No, our free skincare consultations come with no obligations to purchase any products or schedule any treatments. Our goal is simply to provide education and guidance on your skin journey. You are also welcome to consider your master esthetician’s advice before scheduling or purchasing products.
It should be noted that for certain procedures you may need to re-consult if it has been over 90 days since your initial consultation. Though for many procedures, this is not the case.
