If you want to book a treatment please take note of some of the specific instructions below:
- A cancelation fee of 25% is charged if less than 48 hours notice is given.
- If a cancelation is due to Covid-19 illness or contact notification, a 14 day isolation period will be required before you can re-book an appointment, and only when you are well enough to attend. If you are running a temperature your procedure will not go ahead.
- If you take a holiday/trip abroad a 14 day isolation period will be required before you can book an appointment, and only when 14 days of self-quarantine have passed and you are well enough to attend will your appointment be booked. If you are running a temperature your procedure will not go ahead.
- If you have had a COVID-19 vaccination you cannot have your treatment until 3 weeks after this.
- If you would like more than one treatment, please combine the treatments on the same day e.g. Crows Feet, Forehead and Frown Lines.
Before your appointment:
- Please remove your make-up before you come for your appointment to save face to face contact time in the clinic.
- Please do not arrive early as there is no available waiting room as it is one client in the clinic at a time.
- Please bring your own face mask, should you forget one will be made available for you.
- Payments will only be available by BACs prior to treatment. Sorry no we can’t take cash payments at this time.
At your appointment:
- On arrival you will be checked to see that you have a suitable face mask if not one will be supplied to you.
- Your temperature will be checked by a hand held Digital Infrared Testing Thermometer, if you are running a high temperature your procedure will not go ahead and you will have to re-book an appointment, and only when you are well enough to attend.
- You will be required to wash your hands following the World Health Organisation Hand Wash instructions below before your treatment can start.
- After your treatment you will be required to wash your hands following the World Health Organisation Hand Wash instructions below before exciting the clinic.
How we have prepared the clinic :
- There will be hand washing facilities available for you to use.
- Please keep your mask on if you have one otherwise we will provide one.
- We will be wearing PPE, which includes a visor and disposable mask, apron and gloves. This is a new for every client we see.
- Appointment times have been lengthened to allow for extra cleaning and preparation time before and after each appointment. Please be prompt for your appointment that way there is sufficient time to ensure all cleaning and preparation between clients.
Working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19)
Aesthetics By Emma (ABE) is a close contact service, due to the needles involved and close contact of the procedures between practicioner and client. Currently at this time Group Bookings are not able to take place.
ABE have a duty to reduce workplace risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures. ABE have put the following procedures in place:
- Ensuring both ABE and clients who feel unwell stay at home and do not attend the premises or appointments.
- In every workplace, increasing the frequency of handwashing and surface cleaning.
- As appointments in the home are currently not possible, ABE workplaces make every reasonable effort to comply with the social distancing guidelines set out by the government.
- Where the social distancing guidelines cannot be followed in full, in relation to a particular activity, ABE will consider whether that activity needs to continue for the business to operate, and if so, take all the mitigating actions possible to reduce the risk of transmission between their staff.
- Clearly, when providing close contact services, it often may not be possible to maintain social distancing guidelines (2m, or 1m apart with risk mitigation, is acceptable). As a result, personal protective equipment in the form of a visor will be required to mitigate the risk.
Further mitigating actions include:
– further increasing the frequency of hand washing and surface cleaning
– keeping the activity time involved as short as possible
– using screens or barriers to separate clients from one another. If the practitioner is wearing a visor, screens will not provide additional protection between the practitioner and the individual. Everyone working in close proximity for an extended period of time must wear a visor
– using back-to-back or side-to-side working (rather than face-to-face) whenever possible
– using a consistent pairing system, defined as fixing which workers work together, if workers have to be in close proximity (defined as being within arm’s-length of someone else for a sustained period of time).
- Finally, services which require workers to be within the ‘highest risk zone’ of clients (defined as the area in front of the face where splashes and droplets from the nose and mouth, that may not be visible, can be present and pose a hazard from the client to the practitioner and vice versa), for the entire duration or the majority of the time the service is being provided, should not be resumed unless they can be adapted in line with this guidance to make them safe (for example, by moving out of the highest risk zone and wearing a visor). The closer someone is to the source of the virus, the greater the risk of transmission. Particular attention should also be paid to avoiding contact with surfaces near to the client and thoroughly cleaning those surfaces after each client.
