Why Images are Essential to Monitoring Progress

Dr Barbara Kubicka, founder of Clinicbe in Knightsbridge, always takes photos of the patient before and after treatment.

This provides an important record of the procedures undertaken, showing the results delivered. This is not just to show the patient what benefit the treatment has delivered, but also to ensure against the risk of going ‘too far’, which can result in looking unnatural or overdone. See last week’s article on When Cosmetic Treatments Go Too Far.

Dr Kubicka explains:

“Patients very quickly adjust to their newly improved facial appearance and it is therefore very valuable to have photographic reference of the ‘before’.

“This is really key to ensuring that we don’t get carried away with further improvements.

“Drifting too far from the patient’s normal appearance can lead us onto the ‘overdone’ territory, which I always discourage.

“I believe that the best compliment for our patients is ‘You look well’ rather than ‘What have you had done’. At Clinicbe, we deliver that through advanced injecting techniques rather than heavy-handed injections and our patients definitely favour the confidence that comes from a naturally fresh and youthful look.”

Recording results in terms of before and after photos enables the doctor and patient to see the results of treatment together, which is very valuable for discussing any further work at that point or in the future.

Before and After Photos

These before and after images show the results of treatment for facial redness using a combination of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment plus organic fruit peels. This shows a clear benefit from the treatment, which can be reviewed not only in any immediate follow-up appointments, but also in the future whenever the patient visits for a repeat treatment.
