Tips On Finding the Right Skincare Specialist in Malaysia

Skin Management | | 03 Jan 2022

Not all skincare specialists are created equal. Finding the one who will work with you to resolve your skin problems and concerns requires some research and some investigation on what's really going on behind the scenes!

When you’re looking for your ideal skincare specialist and skincare clinic in Malaysia, here are 5 tips to find the best from the rest.


       Find a skin specialist with the best educational background

When it comes to skin and health, knowledge matters. Anyone can start a beauty centre, but a specialist with a degree, Master's or PhD can boast additional years of supervised study and have passed rigorous exams.


       Find a skin specialist that gives unrushed appointments

Exceptional skin specialists don’t look at the clock; they look at your chart and are completely focused on your personal story and your questions.

Your skin specialist should take the time to explain things, address your concerns, and explain treatment plans, as well as any tests you may have to undergo.

If a skin specialist doesn't seem to take your thoughts and requirements into consideration, is hard to follow up with or rushes you through an appointment, it’s time to find someone who values you more as a customer.


       Find a skin specialist who doesn't do sales pitching

You're visiting a skin specialist's office, not a sales event. The specialist and the office staff should never aggressively push products, treatments, or other remedies that don’t specifically address your personal concerns.

If you feel that a specialist is selling you more products than you need, he or she may be more interested in your money than in helping you.

       A generous sampling policy

Most off the time, a good skin specialist will be happy to provide you samples, such as mini tubes of various products to show that he/she dermatologist genuinely wants you to experience the best solution to a given skin problem, and that he or she is conscious of budgets.

If your skin specialist wants you to try a product to make sure it’s right for you before you commit to it, it’s a great sign.

       They ask for your full medical history

It’s vital for your skin specialist to know if you’re allergic to anything. For example, someone who is allergic to aspirin might not know that some anti-aging skincare contains aspirin.

It’s also vital for skin specialists to know if you have any existing conditions. Someone with a history of herpes simplex who gets laser treatment without taking prophylactic (preventive) medication first could get herpes all over their face as a result.

Lastly, it's important that your skin specialist asks for any medications that you have taken or are currently taking! This is key as this could lead to effects from any treatments you undergo.

For example, if you’re currently on blood thinners or are taking regular medication that makes you sensitive to light, getting a usual laser treatment could in fact cause severe bruising to your skin. It might also result in permanent and irreparable white or dark spots on your skin!

       They provide ample after-hours care.

You should never feel left in the dark. Whether you're experiencing an allergic reaction following a treatment or you have a pressing question about it, there should be a way for you to reach the skin specialist during evenings and on weekends.

A good skin specialist will have on-call service for emergencies or after-hours consultation. While you can expect some delay, you should expect to have a reasonable way to contact your skin specialist urgently. Find a skin specialist who will be there for you!
