A Skin Treatment Plan Designed To Fit Your Needs
Making an informed decision amidst confusing, conflicting, and sometimes contradictory information is one of the biggest challenges in knowing what is best for your skin. From consult to follow-up, Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa wants to ensure that you will receive the most advanced treatments for your skin care needs. We want patients to be educated about their treatments and will do our best to make sure have a clear understanding of the process.
Make The Most Of Your Skin Treatment Consultation
Know your goals. At Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa, we do complimentary consultations for skin treatments, body contouring, and hair removal. To make the most of your consultation, have your goals in mind when you schedule your appointment. Before coming in to see our Patient Care Coordinator, stand in front of the mirror and take notes. You’ll be asked what bothers you about your skin and overall appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles? Sun damage or freckles? Scars? That tummy bulge or expanding waistline? Under eye bags or dark circles? Don’t leave anything out. (You won’t want to forget to mention any sagging skin or those little frown lines we call “the elevens” between your eyebrows if they bother you.) Then decide what bothers you the most. When you come in for your appointment, we will start with those things most important to you and go from there. We may not be able to cover EVERY treatment you are interested in, but we certainly want to focus on your biggest concerns first and help you meet your goals.
Find Out If You Are Mistreating Your Skin
We find that many clients are using the wrong skin care products, so bring a list of the current products you are using and the order in which you are using them. You’ll find out if you’ve been unknowingly compounding problematic skin. For instance, if you think your skin is oily, you may be overdoing the exfoliating products causing your skin to overcompensate by producing more oil.

Be Completely Candid During Your Consultation
The success and safety of your skin care treatments depends very much on your complete candidness during your consultation. You’ll be asked a number of questions about your health, goals, and lifestyle. Be prepared to discuss things like allergies and pertinent medical history; past treatments; use of tobacco, alcohol or drugs; current medications and supplements; etc. Mention any special occasions coming up. If you have a class reunion, vacation, wedding, or any other special occasion coming up, let your Patient Care Coordinator know. We have certain skin care treatments to give you a healthy glow for the occasion, but for other treatments, it may be best to wait since some treatments have downtime. Consider your options and ask questions.
What To Expect During Your Consultation
When you arrive at Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa, you will be greeted by Dr. Manjoney’s welcoming and friendly front desk staff. Whether you fill out paperwork online ahead of time or come in early to fill it out, there still may be some papers to sign and items to take care of. Please be sure to bring in your photo I.D. and any questions you have written down for our Patient Care Coordinator. Once checked in, you can relax in our beautiful relaxation room. Coffee, tea, and water are available for your enjoyment.
Our Patient Care Coordinator will then meet with you to discuss your concerns and goals. Be sure to plan about 45 minutes to an hour with her and be sure not to be late as in it only creates less time for you to ask questions and discuss concerns. In order to help us determine your skin’s current condition more accurately, you might want to come without makeup or come early to cleanse your skin. We can then observe your skin using a woods lamp, illuminating the underneath layer of the skin. Only after a thorough assessment of your skin, can a recommendation for skin care products and course of treatment be made.
From skin care products to treatments, we have several options for your skin care program and we customize each treatment program for every patient. We also offer many easy ways to pay for your treatments – cash. It’s also nice to know that there is Care Credit Interest-Free Financing available for easy monthly payment plans if needed. If you have further questions on our vein services, please feel free to call our office and be on your way to a younger-looking, more beautiful you.
