Body Perfection laser clinic

 

All of us have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

 

We have missed being able to offer you the treatments that we know you love, and we are looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible.

 

Our priority is to keep you as safe as possible, and prior to re-opening the salon we have implemented a number of changes which we would like to make you aware of. During the time the salon has been shut, we have completed the Coronavirus(COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd and the barbicide COVID-19certificate, the UK trade body for our industry. We have since made a number of changes in the way that we operate that you will notice when you next visit.

 

Booking Appointments

 

If any of our staff feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, they will self-isolate immediately and not come into the salon. This may mean that we have to cancel your appointment at short notice. We appreciate that this may be inconvenient, but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled you will be able to re-book again as soon as we can and we will offer a discount for your inconvenience.

 

If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19 –please advise us as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. Please allow 48 notice to cancel your appointment, if you book and pay a deposit you are taking responsibility for loss of deposit should Covid symptoms/track and trace / isolation or any other illness occur. We will do our best to try and fill the space for you, but if we cannot fill the space, the deposit unfortunately will be lost.

Visiting the Salon

 

For your safety and to maintain social distancing, we ask that you attend your appointments as close to the appointment time as possible. Please do not turn up early for appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving. We will ask you to stay in your car until your appointment time. We have provided outdoor seating for you to relax in while you wait.

We have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, toilets door handles are wiped clean using disinfectant products between each client, we will have a 15 minute gap between each client to do this.

 

All tools and equipment will be disinfected or sterilised in line with the specific manufacturers’ instructions for your safety.  

 

Wherever possible we will utilise environmentally, friendly, single use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use in order to protect you from cross infection.

 

Only one person per visit, please don’t bring family or friends to wait with you in the clinic.

 

We will not offer refreshments or food, however if you would like a drink, we will provide disposable cups and spoons for you.

 

We kindly asks for no hugs, kisses or handshakes at the moment.

 

You will have access to soap and hot water to wash your hands with as soon as you enter the salon and we will also have hand sanitiser available for you to use when you come into the salon.

 

We will understand and not be offended if you wish to wear a facemask or wear disposable gloves when you visit the salon and during your treatment is this is appropriate, please provide your own.

 

Please don’t be surprised or upset if our staff use personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment. This may include disposable gloves / facemasks / aprons / face shields / screens where appropriate.

 

We can confirm that the laundering of salon towels and uniforms is a priority we can assure you that all salon laundry is washed at 60 degrees C

Our treatments

 

Although we are very happy to see you, please do not try to hug us or shake our hands we want to keep contact to a minimum for protection to both parties.

 

We have carried out a risk assessment on all treatments and we are confident that we can continue to provide these safely

 

During your treatment

 

Our staff understand the importance of hand hygiene and we will ensure that we wash our hands in according to the NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment.

 

We will try to make your treatment as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns about your treatments please let us know and we will do what we can to satisfy you.

 

After the treatment

 

In order to avoid handling of cash, we would prefer if you could pay for your treatment by card / or in advance using bank transfers.

 

All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and that of our staff. We will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary.

 

Thanks you for your understanding.
