We hope you are well and safe in these difficult times. Following the Government announcement on Saturday and extensive consultation with local Government licensing departments we can announce that our clinics we will remain open for the time being during the lockdown. This may change at short notice if legislation or the situation changes. We will be operating a reduced service with extensive gaps between treatments for sterilisation and anti infection protocols to take place.
We received notification the evening on 4/11/20 that we can open for medical treatments only under medical treatment exemption rules.
What this means is that if excessive hair growth is causing you considerable distress/anxiety/is harmful to your mental health, it can be classed as a medical treatment and can be carried out. If your hair removal treatment is purely cosmetic we are not legally allowed to treat you and you should reschedule for after lock-down (3/12/20 onwards).
We will be sending out the medical form as usual via an email, 1-3 days before your appointment. This will contain mandatory Coronavirus (Covid 19) questions and will also ask questions as to whether the laser hair removal treatment is beneficial to you in dealing with stress/anxiety associated with excessive hair growth. If you answer yes, the treatment can be carried out, if you answer no, you will have to wait until we re-open as normal (currently scheduled for 3/12/20) when the Government gives the go ahead for purely cosmetic treatments such as nails, brows and lashes treatments to be performed. You can also reschedule for a later date if you prefer.
We implemented many changes after the initial lockdown in order to open in as safe and secure a manner as possible with the highest levels of hygiene and infection control in place. To read more about this, please click here.
