consent forms for acne treatment

If you are an aesthetic practitioner or facial therapist performing acne treatments in the UK, you will know how important it is to gain patient consent. 

A popular treatment for eliminating unsightly acne blemishes, along with other skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage, chemical peels can be life-transforming for patients. 

These highly effective treatments exfoliate away layers of skin to reveal fresher, clearer and more youthful looking skin, but it is vital that you obtain clear consent for these invasive procedures. 

Electronic consent forms are safer

Old fashioned paper forms are risky. All too often they can be handed in incomplete. It’s time-consuming to check over them, whereas electronic forms have mandatory fields that ensure all that critical data is collected and stored. Electronic acne treatment consent forms are a smart, efficient way to collect and update client data, while protecting practitioners. 

A smarter way to gain consent

Paper consent forms can so easily get lost, damaged or stolen, which can also leave you vulnerable to litigation. Electronic patient consent forms for acne treatment, on the other hand, provide total peace of mind. You can rest assured that all your client sensitive information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. It can also be stored securely and is easy to access from any device. 

GDPR Compliant

Electronic acne treatment consent forms also allow practitioners to stay compliant with GDPR, allowing you to easily update the latest GDPR consent requests when switching to electronic forms. 

Improved patient experience

Acne treatment patient consent forms can be completed and updated on an iPad or tablet, speeding up the consultation process and providing a more superior customer experience.  Electronic forms can also be branded with your logo and used for a wide range of treatments.

Electronic facial consultation forms

We all know how essential obtaining client consent is before carrying out any facial treatment. Failure to do so could invalidate your insurance and leave you facing big charges should they make a claim against you. Yet consultation forms filled out on paper can really hamper the client being able to enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable experience during their appointment. 

Today’s client expects a smooth, intuitive and efficient experience when it comes to their visit to a Beauty Salon or Spa. After all, they are there to relax and get rid of the day-to-day pressures of work and life – and completing a consultation form by hand will be the last thing they need. 

Thanks to digital technology and mobile deployment, iPEGS has been able to address these challenges and improve the customer experience with the introduction of electronic consent forms, specifically with the health and beauty industry in mind. 

Welcoming new clients

Having a detailed consultation is a key first step before undertaking any facial treatment. This will show new clients that you are professional, able to offer expert advice and keen to understand exactly what they want. Carrying out this process electronically by handing the client an iPad to complete the form, will leave a good long-lasting first impression with new clients.

Personalising your service

iPEGS electronic forms allow you to customise and personalise client consultation forms to your own needs. Using a simple drag and drop functionality, you can customise fields, add your own colours and branding and unique forms for each treatment. This in itself makes your salon stand out from the competition and makes the customer experience slick from start to finish.

Reduced cost and errors

The easier a form is to complete, the quicker the consultation process which reduces your time spent (and therefore cost) with each client. Electronic forms also eliminate errors by ensuring that all essential fields are completed, and reduce any inaccuracies caused by illegible handwriting.

From a time perspective, the customer is not the only beneficiary; electronic consultation forms are immediately stored and backed up without having to transfer the information manually onto a computer. 

Client confidentiality 

Beauty therapists are often in a position of trust. Clients trust you with their most important information, and it is vital that this information is stored correctly. Not just from a client sensitivity point of view, but data protection is your responsibility and if it gets into the wrong hands a client is well within their rights to make a claim against you.
