Eat a healthy diet, whole food vitamins and daily omega 3 fish oil. It is also advisable to take 1000 mg of vitamin C and 2000 iu. of vitamin D3. This ensures an increase in vitamins internally and externally and will greatly aid in the healing process.

DAY OF TREATMENT:

    Must be On Time. (preferably a little earlier)   You will need to have numbing cream applied as well as fill out paperwork. This procedure cannot be rushed.   Any client that is 10 minutes late, MUST reschedule.  It is not fair to the next client to have to wait.   No Exceptions.   Give yourself PLENTY of time for traffic (Just assume it is going to be bad and leave early.  It is always better to be early than late.) Give yourself plenty of time for weather conditions, as well.

Skin must be clean...  without any lotions, creams, oils, makeup, powder, perfume or sunscreen. ( I will cleanse, but it is best to come in with a clean face. NO mascara please!   I understand if you are coming in from work, etc..  but if you are coming in from home, please ...NO makeup at all.) 

Inform us of any relevant changes in your medical history and of all medications you are taking.

BOOKING  POLICY/ CANCELLATION/ NO SHOW

We respect your valuable time and strive to maintain a timely schedule each day. In order to do this, we request that you are punctual and inform us if you are going to be late or if you are unable to make your appointment as soon as possible.  While we realize that sometimes lateness is unavoidable, we try to adhere to the schedule and will most likely have to reschedule you if you are more than ten minutes late for your appointment.

 

Please understand that all it takes is one late appointment in the morning and every appointment thereafter is affected negatively. We like to have ample time to devote to you for your service and we often have appointments scheduled back-to-back, which makes it impossible to make up for lateness. Therefore, we do not run over scheduled appointment times.  We absolutely will not rush through your treatment(s). 

 

Please note that all appointments must be paid in full with a credit or debit card via our secure on-line booking system. (unless we have made prior arrangements)

 

Your appointment time is reserved for you and only you.

When appointments are cancelled with 24 hours or less notice, or if there is a no-call/no show, we are unable to fill this time, in order to minimize these occurrences, you are responsible for the full cost of the service booked, if you cancel 24 hours or less before your appointment.

No Refunds.  You may reschedule, if necessary.  You may use your paid treatment(s) within 6 months of this signed contract.  You may transfer the payment for other types of facials/facial treatments within the 6 months.

 

In the event that you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please text 615-414-7939 with as much advance notice as possible and at least 24 hours in advance of your service to avoid any charges for your service. Our normal operating business hours are Tuesday through Friday, 11am – 4pm. An email or text message is an acceptable method to communicate your cancellation and MUST be confirmed by us.  Please note that verifiable emergencies will be handled on a per case basis.

 

If you have any type of contagious illness, we request that you reschedule your appointment immediately. Please do not show up for your appointment if you are not well. We will not be able to provide your service and you will be fully responsible for the charge if showing up ill and we have to refuse the service.  if you are not feeling well, please reschedule. 

 

We strive to offer you the highest quality of care and appreciate your patronage! Thank you for understanding.

NOTE:   If you have any questions about the above Pre/Post treatment form, please email me before booking your treatment(s).

Please arrive EARLY  (10-15 minutes) You will fill out the Traditional and/or RF Micro-Needling Consent and Waiver paperwork at your first appointment.  I can answer any questions or concerns you may have. 

I will apply the numbing cream and it will take about 15 - 20 minutes for proper affect.

You can relax to my spa music in this waiting time or you might want to bring something to read or listen to while relaxing, before I start the treatment.
