Terms and Conditions

Set out below are the terms on which Skin Life provides service to its clients. Please ensure that you have read and fully understood them prior to booking any Skin Life treatments.

Reservations
We highly recommend that you schedule your appointments at least one week in advance to ensure that your preferred time and treatment or service is available.

Appointments and Cancellation Policy
All doctors, nurses and therapists at are trained and approved in accordance with the company’s treatment protocols and therefore Skin Life does not guarantee continued treatment with a named nurse or therapist.

If you are unable to attend your appointment, we require 24 hours’ notice. If you fail to attend an appointment without giving due notice, we may charge a cancellation fee and require you to pay for all future treatments in advance. Clients who have purchased a course of treatment but fail to attend their appointment will be charged for their missed treatment.

Late arrival may result in reduced treatment time or forfeiting of the appointment. Skin Life will endeavour to ensure that your appointment runs to time; however, should we need to cancel or postpone your appointment at short notice, we will make every effort to contact you in advance.

Prior to your appointment we will inform you of any preparation required in advance of your treatment. Failure to follow the guidelines may result in cancellation of your appointment, reduced treatment time, or additional fees being charged.

We do not provide refunds for cancelled or missed appointments. Cancellation is accepted over the phone or in person at the salon. Cancellation via e-mail is accepted. Do not leave voice message regarding cancellations.

Please note clients can reschedule their existing booked appointment for a maximum of three times. Any further rescheduling will be at the discretion of Skin Life. Too many rescheduling per client in a very short time frame causes business disruptions which can affect existing clients.  Skin Life wants to ensure disruptions are set to a minimum and provide all clients the best flexibility and assured times possible.

Courses of treatments
All treatments purchased as a course must be paid for in full in advance of the first treatment. All treatments must be taken within 12 months of the date of purchase; any treatments left untaken after 12 months will be forfeited.

Please note that treatment exchanges are available upon discretion.

Payments
All treatment bookings must be paid for in full, on arrival at the clinic, prior to treatment commencing.

If you have paid for a course of treatments and are subsequently unable to complete the course, we will offer you a refund, calculated by deducting the full list price of all treatments already taken, plus any charged for non-attendance, from the total price of the course of treatments, and return the difference to you. (Note: treatments or courses that have been bought with discounts will be calculated based on full list price per course and per treatment)

You have 7 working days to cancel the service, beginning the day after you made a booking. If your treatment starts within the cancellation period then your right to cancel ends the day you start treatment.

Please be aware that the booking fees are non-refundable unless you cancel 24 hours before your appointment time.

Purchased products are non refundable. However Skin Life may agree to exchange the product (unopened/original packaging) for another product of same value.

Please note we do not tolerate any type of receipt fraud.

Treatment suitability
We will always assess whether treatment is suitable for you, or likely to be successful, prior to any treatment being carried out. If not, we will inform you as to the reasons why. You will only be liable for the cost of the initial consultation, where applicable.

Liability
Skin Life will not be liable in contract, tort or otherwise for any economic loss (including, without limitation, loss of profit), or for any other special, indirect or consequential loss or damage arising out of, or in connection with, its provision of any goods and/or services to the client.

It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that he or she provide Skin Life with all relevant medical details prior to each treatment. Skin Life will not be liable for any damage that occurs as a result of the client’s failure to disclose such details.

The client agrees to comply with all instructions and/or recommendations given to them by, or on behalf of, Skin Life regarding the care of a treated area. Nothing in these terms of business shall exclude or limit Skin Life’s liability for death or any personal injury resulting from Skin Life’s negligence.

Your right to complain
Skin Life endeavours to treat all its clients appropriately, compassionately and fairly. If, however, you have an issue with any matter in relation to your treatment at Skin Life, you are entitled to lodge a complaint, either verbally, by telephone or in writing. If you require assistance with making your complaint, Skin Life will be pleased to help.

The member of staff who initially receives the complaint will convey the details to the Clinic Manager or their designated deputy, and you will receive a letter within two days of lodging the complaint that an investigation into the matter is under way.
