General information

Consultation is by appointment only

An initial consultation is a 30 minute appointment which allows you to discuss concerns and motivations. A full medical history will be taken, including current conditions, personal and family history, skin risk factors, medications and allergies. Your practitioner will then talk with you about what you would like to address, what options are available and outline a plan to be able to achieve this.

You are free to contact our clinic to make an initial consult with Sally, Mel or Amy. Mel and Sally will happily see you, discuss your concerns and skin goals, and determine a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Both practitioners have several years of experience and are comfortable working with you independently, but also discuss concerns with Dr Amy O’Brien when medical input is needed.

Patients can also book an appointment with Dr Amy O’Brien, with no referral required for aesthetic consultations.

An SMS reminder will be sent in the week prior to your appointment. Please let us know if you are unable to attend. When notice is given, cancellations can be easily filled, but a fee may be charged if you do not attend your appointment.

How to prepare for your appointment

If you are a new patient, please arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment time, so your administrative paperwork can be completed. Our aesthetics pre-appointment information form can either be printed and filled in ahead of time or completed upon arrival.
