Prior to your appointment you will receive a “pre-check form” linked to your SMS reminder that you must complete prior to your appointment. This is to ensure the safety of your treatment and to prepare our clinicians for your appointment. If this is not filled out, you will be required to fill it in when you arrive to the clinic before going ahead with your treatment. You will receive this before every appointment visit with The Aesthetic Skin Clinic to ensure we keep up to date with any medical changes.
As mentioned, all new clients require a skin consultation. We need to see your skin in it’s natural state to recommend a custom treatment and home-care prescription. We also need to analyse what could be causing your concerns. We will want to know anything and everything that goes on to your skin, so make a list of your product names and brands - bringing them in also helps (this way we can check ingredient labels and help provide the best advice).
Please be open minded. Skincare is often best left to professionals, so although you might be interested in a specific treatment we offer, if it is going to do more harm to your skin we will recommend a treatment that will work well with your current skin health.
Please note; for all laser skin therapies such as laser pigmentation removal, laser vascular therapy and our IPL procedures, a test patch is required 24-48 hours prior to full treatment. This is to ensure we can provide 100% safety at all times to our patients and achieve the best results possible.
There may also be some procedures we perform in clinic that require a “skin prep” prior to having the treatment. For example, we can not do a deep peel on a patient that has never had any treatments and not using appropriate skincare. If so, this can compromise the skin causing further complications.
PRE + POST CARE PRODUCT
Some procedures we perform in clinic may require pre & post care corrective products as a “skin prep” to ensure appropriate care for the treatment area. This is also to ensure we limit associated risks involved. For certain procedures this is a non-negotiable however this will be discussed with you at the time of your consultation and/or before the treatment.
A notification reminder will be sent via SMS 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment along with a notification email. We understand that you may need to change your booking from time to time and we kindly request that you provide us with a minimum of 24 hours notice so that we can offer that appointment to another patient. If sufficient notice is given, (24 hours), you will not lose your booking deposit or prepaid treatment. Please phone the clinic on (03) 52691847 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel or change your appointments.

We operate class 4 medical grade lasers, light based technology and electric machinery that moves around treatment rooms and the clinic that carry serious risks. For this reason, children under the age of 12 are not permitted in our treatment rooms or left unsupervised in the clinic. We also do not have the capacity for our staff to care for your children while you are having a treatment done.
We have late night appointments available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday until 8pm.

Gift vouchers are valid for 24 months from the date of purchase and are not redeemable after the end date. Any lost vouchers cannot be replaced and “no show” to appointments after booking will mean the voucher can no longer be used. The voucher must be brought in with you on the day or it can not be redeemed. Vouchers are non transferable to another client.
DISCOUNTS + PROMOTIONS
