Why We Need Client Information Forms for Skincare Services

checklist paper and a girl having a facial; text; why do we need a client information forms for skincare services It might just seem more form-filling to you. But there are plenty of reasons why we will always ask you to complete one of our Client Information Forms or consultation forms if you’re coming to us for the first time, and in some cases, if you’re having a new treatment with us.

We must have a completed intake from you to make sure your treatments are effective and safe, and suitable for you. We only want to provide you with the correct and accurate treatment you truly deserve and need.


General Health

First of all, we need to know a bit about your overall health, including any medications you’re currently taking. Your medication is necessary because some products we use could interact with medicine (we wouldn’t use some facial types on a client taking acne medication because of increased sensitivity). Other conditions might make some types of treatment inadvisable, like microcurrent facials, for example.

We also need to know if you’re pregnant – some treatments aren’t advised during the first trimester, and even natural products like some essential oils aren’t recommended for women during pregnancy.

Skin Health

Creating stunning visuals means knowing what we are working with so that we can make you look good! If you suffer from any rashes, allergies, or skin complaints, please tell us to make sure we don’t use any products that irritate your skin even more. We can also factor that into your treatment plan as an issue to address.

We’ll ask you questions about your skin type so that we can make suitable recommendations for your treatment plan and home care products too. Knowing that your skin is sensitive will help us avoid products that could cause a reaction, and if we know you have oily/dry/combination skin, we can treat that accordingly.

Issues You Would Like to Address Must be Written in the Intake Form

Some people like to treat themselves to a facial to relax and pamper themselves, while others have specific concerns that they want to treat, like wrinkles and fine lines, dark circles, acne, or rosacea. If you can tell us as much as possible about your desires, we can formulate a plan and choose the best skincare products to help you get the results you want from us.

Your Lifestyle

We might ask you questions about your lifestyle too. This is to get an overall idea of how you are and whether you will make changes realistically. If you lead a very stressful lifestyle, juggling work, kids, and more, and barely have time for yourself, we’ll look at home care products for you that are quick and easy rather than a complicated yet effective regime. It’s all about you.

We’ll also make some gentle recommendations about ways to improve your skin through making minor changes, so if you smoke, for example, you know what we’re going to tell you! We can advise you on SPF skincare based on your answers and give you valuable tips to boost the effects of the facial or treatments you’re having.

The questions we ask you on our Client Intake Form are there for both your therapist and you. We need valuable information to make sure that we tailor any treatments to your exact needs. We appreciate you taking the time to fill them out honestly and in detail.
