Know your skin

Skin Type

Our in-depth assessment enables us to identify your skin type, predict potential problems, take action to prevent them from happening, and recommend the most appropriate skincare products that treat skin conditions quickly and effectively.

Your perfect skincare


Skin is a fabulously complex, ever-changing organ that protects us from the elements and helps control our body temperature. It reflects our age, health, diet and even our mood. Understanding your skin type is essential to caring for skin in the right way for optimum results.

Many clients are uncertain of their skin type. This is perfectly understandable as skin type can be described in the most simple of terms (normal, dry, oily) to the very complex. At L’Atelier Aesthetics on Harley Street & Mayfair, we take a problem-solving approach to determining skin type, checking sensitivity, whether skin is dry or oily, whether there are signs of premature ageing, and whether it is prone to pigmentation.

To book a consultation or to find out more about your skin type at L’Atelier Aesthetic skin clinic in Harley Street & Mayfair, London, contact our friendly team by calling 0207 637 3208 or sending an email to info@latelieraesthetics.co.uk.

Your treatment journey

Discover how we can create your perfect skin through our skin type assessment.



The first step on your journey is an assessment at our aesthetics clinic. We’ll help identify whether your skin is dry or oily, sensitive, prone to pigmentation, and whether there are any signs of premature ageing.



Once your skin type has been determined, our experts can suggest appropriate treatments to target your concerns and help prevent future ageing of the skin.



Following treatment, we’ll offer tailored advice to help optimise your results and ensure any side effects, if applicable, are kept to a minimum. We can also put together a plan to outline when you may need to repeat treatments.

The Experts


Our state-of-the-art clinic is tucked discreetly away within Harley Street, Mayfair – Marylebone, London’s most renowned medical district.

Our dedicated team offer a warm welcome alongside informed, expert and completely confidential advice. We’ll help you to address your concerns or goals and create a bespoke treatment plan to outline what’s involved, including aftercare and answers to any of your questions.

Your questions answered

  • Establishing your skin type and treating it accordingly is essential to caring for your skin. Skin type can be a confusing issue and there’s lots of conflicting advice. We use proven diagnostic methods to effectively determine your skin type. Our experience and expertise then enables us to recommend the right treatments and products for you.

  • The L’Atelier bespoke skincare service has been developed to help our clients really understand their skin and its needs. We carry out an in-depth assessment and then use the insight and knowledge gained to develop a bespoke skincare programme. This helps improve skin’s natural beauty while maximising the results of any aesthetic treatments.

  • This advanced technology uses live image overlay to capture images of your face and skin to identify areas of sun damage, pigmentation, wrinkles, rosacea, enlarged pores and uneven texture.

  • This advanced diagnostic test helps determine how your skin will age and how to prevent this through assessing your DNA. We’ve partnered with SkinDNA (a leading Australian pharmaco genomics company) to provide this revolutionary approach to skincare at L’Atelier. Your DNA is obtained via a simple swab on the inside of your cheek. Comprehensive testing results in a personalised report with skincare recommendations based on what your DNA has revealed about your skin.

  • It takes around 30 minutes including collating results and making recommendations.

  • Skin is constantly changing and evolving. At L’Atelier, we continually assess your skin to ensure we’re keeping up with its changing needs.
