The First Consultation, upon your request, may be made orally (in person or over the phone) or in writing.
3.2 DEPOSIT required – You will need to pay a deposit with your request for a specific treatment in order to reserve the Initial Consultation and any subsequent appointment. The deposit will be a very nominal amount. However, we have the right to charge you a larger sum based on the price of the service we provide you. The precise amount of the deposit will be confirmed at the time of reservation.
3.3 Additional deposit requirements – In the event that you are unable to attend the First Consultation, you may request a new consultation date. However, the provision of a second consultation appointment is at our sole discretion, and unless you provide 48 hours notice, you will be asked to pay a second deposit to secure that appointment. The amount of the additional deposit will be determined solely by us based on the service you request from us.
4.1 When do we provide our service – We will provide our services to you during the Initial Consultation and any follow-up consultations included in your treatment plan and the appointments booked thereafter. We also provide our services over the course of a predetermined number of treatment appointments (a “Course(s)”), beginning with the Initial Consultation until the completion of services. All treatments and plans are documented on our website and the information leaflets we provide you before the treatment.
4.2 Continuity of our services and treatments – We cannot guarantee you continued treatment with the same staff or aestheticians, but we do our best to provide continuity of care.

Loss or damage is deemed foreseeable if it is evident that it will occur or if both you and we understood at the time the contract was formed that it would occur, such as if you discussed it with us during the booking process. To be clear, however, we are not liable for any economic loss or any other special, indirect, or consequential loss or damage arising out of or in connection with its provision of services to you, including harm resulting from your failure to provide us with any information required by clause 4.3.
