For example, your skin may react in a different way to that expected, or your skin may not be in a suitable condition for the planned treatment on the day of the appointment, or you may simply be seeking to avoid an expected reaction on a particular day because of a lifestyle commitment. Any such adjustments to a treatment program will be discussed with you, in order to seek your agreement, prior to treatment commencing. Your verbal agreement in these circumstances will be taken as implicit consent.

As part of your treatment program, it is likely that you will be prescribed skincare, which can be purchased in the clinic, for use at home. Some internet traders are now selling such products. They are not, in most cases, authorized or trained to do so, and in many cases the source of the supply is unknown. Using such a product, which may not be appropriate for your skin, and may be short-dated or counterfeit, can result in an adverse skin reaction. Andresa Aesthetics recommends that you purchase the products that you are prescribed from the clinic or similar health clinic, so that you get the results you expect.
16. Client Satisfaction
If you are not satisfied with the service or products provided by Andresa Aesthetics, you must contact the clinic within 24 hours so that the situation may be rectified.
