What might prevent you having a treatment? Before you enjoy one of our treatments, it is important to check that it is the right treatment for you. Please take a few moments to read the advice below to ensure there is nothing to prevent you from having your chosen treatment. At your first appointment, Beauty@96 will complete a client consultation card with you and we will update it at every appointment. This is a legal requirement and is important to ensure we do not put you, ourselves or any other client at risk. A short consultation will also ensure that we give you the best treatment we can and that it fulfils your expectations. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us to discuss them confidentially. All information obtained during a consultation is kept in the strictest confidence and in-line with data protection legislation. Something which may prevent or restrict a treatment is called a contra-indication. The following conditions may prevent you from being treated at the current time or may restrict the treatment we can give, owing to health and hygiene considerations. For some conditions, you may need a doctor’s note before we are able to treat you. This list is by no means exhaustive but reflects the most commonly seen conditions. If you are unsure how a condition may affect a treatment, please do not be embarrassed or scared to ask, we are here to help and strive to never make any client feel uncomfortable. If we are not able to treat you now, we look forward to welcoming you in the near future.
