The cancellation policy gives us the time to inform our standby clients of any availability and keeps our team members’ schedules filled.  Our aim is to provide you with an excellent level of service and our policies help us to achieve this.  Thank you for viewing and supporting our policies criteria.

Treatment Procedures and results

Our treatments require a full consultation and in many cases a test patch to asses suitability, this will be carried out by a qualified member of our team. During your consultation expected results will be explained clearly and may also require you to follow treatment advise. Failure to follow advise may result in a less effective treatment for you.

Results in both non-surgical Face and Body treatments and Laser Hair removal may vary and is dependent on many factors including:
  • Skin type
  • Hair type
  • Body mass
  • Physical activity
  • Medical conditions

We advise a minimum of Six treatment sessions for laser hair removal, but some clients will require multiple courses to achieve desired effect. We will be able to determine more once the course begins and will discuss progress on each session.

All of our treatments use medically approved and licenced equipment, to provide a high-quality service.
