Is the treatment really wanted? If it is deemed that the patient has been coerced into having a treatment by a third party, more information may be sought prior to a treatment being performed by Skinsational Cosmetic Nursing.
Is the treatment wanted for the right reasons? If there is a history of mental illness that displays an unhealthy attitude towards their appearance which may cause an unattainable expectation of the results.
