Do I need a referral to see Dr. Claire Sheeran?

No, you do not need a referral to see Dr. Claire. Most appointments related to medical conditions such as eczema, rosacea, acne and skin cancer checks will attract a medicare rebate.

Will I benefit from your services?

If you have struggled with skin issues for most of your life, have been on and off medication and would like to learn to manage your skin condition through a holistic end to end approach- then it is highly likely you will benefit from a consultation. If you are looking for a “quick fix” to fix a long-term skin issue and are not keen to make lifestyle and dietary changes then you will likely not benefit from our service. Our aim is to help you understand your skin inside out so you can look after it in the best possible way for the future.

Why can’t I book in for a makeup consultation or a peel immediately?

The service we offer is holistic. Hence- a makeup consultation will not be beneficial until your skin is in prime condition for you to apply makeup. We are not offering generalised makeup services- rather we are helping you achieve long term skin that you feel comfortable in. Similarly, you cannot book in for a medical peel or other related topical treatments because we need to assess your suitability for these treatments and ensure that you will not suffer any adverse reactions to them. The initial consultation will also allow you to prep your skin so it can gain maximum benefit from further treatments.
