SKIN lounge Etiquette


At SKIN lounge we have an amazing range of treatments and products and believe it is essential that you receive the right programme to suit you. For this reason, every new client must have a Full Skin Consultation before any treatment, these include a 30 minute facial treatment and Light Therapy so that we can assess your skins health.

SKIN lounge Gift Vouchers

These are available in a monetary amount or for a specific treatment and can be purchased at the lounge, our website and by telephone. We ask that the certificates be redeemed within 1 year from purchase date. Unfortunately we cannot extend the date on gift certificates.


At SKIN lounge we provide course options on lots of our treatments which offers a good saving compared to paying for treatments individually. Our courses are valid for 1 year from purchase date.

Lounge Etiquette

We ask that you arrive at the lounge 5 minutes early for your appointment, so that you are relaxed and ready for your practitioner at the appointed time.


We request at least 24 hours notice to be given if you are unable to make your appointment. A cancellation fee of 50% of your booking will be charged for non-arrivals or late cancellations. If there are multiple last minute cancellations or no-shows to the same appointment we will either have to take a full payment or take a treatment off of the course that you are on.

Patch Testing

Patch tests for some of our treatments are essential. A Laser patch test is a quick shot of the laser on a small section of skin around the treatment area. It’s main purpose is to provide the relevant information to you and your therapist, such as the level of energy that is needed to achieve the best results for your skin and hair type. The second reason we carry out a patch test is for you to sample and gauge what your treatment will feel like and also for us to assess the recovery of your skin. If any side affects appear, they will be very minimal, hence the reason for a small test area.
After a patch test, your therapist will then know whether they can proceed safely with your treatment. We cannot go ahead with any treatment that requires a patch test if this has not been fulfilled and your appointment may be rescheduled, this includes all tinting and some laser/ facial treatments.
If you are a new client with us but have a history of lash and brow tinting we will still conduct our own patch tests before any treatment.


Late Arrivals

We regret that if you arrive late for your appointment, this may decrease the time of your treatment. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late, we may have to reschedule your appointment for another time. Sometimes practitioners can also run late into other appointments, we will always do our absolute best to assure this doesn’t happen, however things can change, please remember appropriate behaviour if this does happen. We will make sure that your full booking is still completed.

Client Information

On your first visit to SKIN lounge, you will be asked to complete a client record form and consultation forms depending on the treatment you are having. Please remember to keep us informed of any changes to your personal information, particularly with your health/medication or special requirements to ensure we can provide the best care and service to you every time you visit us.

Personal Belongings

We regret that we are unable to accept any responsibility for the loss or damage to personal belongings at the lounge.
