Etiquette and Policy – SPADE Skin Care

Etiquette and Policy

CONTENT OF THE WEBSITE

We ask that you consider our policies not as restrictions but as indispensable rules, which allow us to provide high standards of service. With regard to appointment cancellation fees, these are unfortunately necessary due to unavoidable expenses and valuable time allocated to clients and patients when they make the appointments. Special offers or promotions can only be purchased once at discounted or promotional price to try our services. Please note that special offers has already been discounted, therefore we cannot combine it with any other specials or discounted offers. The promotional services advertised on various social medias can be purchased only once at discounted price.



APPOINTMENTS AND CONFIRMATIONS

Appointment Confirmations are sent to clients 48 hours in advance and it is the clients responsibility to arrive on time to avoid cancellation fees.



RESERVATIONS

Any reservations can be made by calling/texting our office during normal business hours. To ensure your desired date and time, please allow appropriate time for appointments. A credit card must be used to secure appointments. In the event you must cancel your appointment, please allow 24 hours in advance to avoid a service charge.



PUNCTUALITY

We would like for our guest to arrive promptly at the time of scheduled appointment. It is our desire for you to check in 5 minutes prior to the start of any appointment. We’re committed to offering all our guests a reliable timetable; that’s why your treatment will always end at the scheduled time, so please remember to be on time.



PAYMENT OPTIONS

Payment for all procedures is due at the time of the treatment. For specially packaged or grouped treatments, payment for the entire package is due at the time of the first scheduled treatment. A credit card is required to reserve an appointment for treatment scheduled in advance. We provide a number of payment options which may be used individually or combined according to your desires. In the event that a package or series of treatments has begun, these services will be considered to have been rendered even though the full series may not have been completed. Should you wish to discontinue your treatment in the midst of a series, credit for the pro rata share of unused treatments at the discounted package price may be extended, and this may be used to purchase other treatments or products offered by Spade Skin Care & More, or it may be transferred to another individual to be used in exchange for treatments or products of comparable value to the credit. There are no refunds for products or services. Credit may be extended for other services to you or another individual.



CANCELLATIONS

We ask that you give 24-hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment without charge. We understand that special circumstances are unavoidable and a cancellation may be necessary, and with a 24-hour notice or more there is never a charge. If you are unable to make your appointment without calling and canceling prior to your appointment, there will be a $50 charge for each appointment or lose one session per each appointment.

All multiple service and group reservations require payment in advance. We requests a 72-hour notice of cancellation for multiple service and group reservations. Reservations canceled without the benefit of notice will incur a charge for those services canceled. Gift certificates are considered payments in advance and, therefore, subject to the same policy. Charges will be made on credit cards or deducted from gift certificates that were used as security for reservations.



LATE ARRIVAL ON APPOINTMENTS

All appointments begin and end on time so that the next client is not delayed. If a client is late for more than 5 minutes, the appointment will be rescheduled, and it will be considered a same day cancellation. We regret that late arrivals will not receive extension of scheduled appointment time. In special cases, and when time permits, we may be able to treat the patient in between our other appointment. This will be at our discretion.



RETURN/REFUND POLICY

No refunds are made for products, service packages and pre-paid treatments once they are purchased. If for some reason you are not able to use an unrendered, pre-paid service, you may do a one time exchange of the unused portion toward other services. If there are any changes/adjustment to the discounted packages/series, the original non discounted price will be used to calculate remaining credit which can be used towards other services. There will be no refund on gift cards purchased.



CONSULTATION

Please call/text us at (310)316-1954 for your initial consultation. CC information is needed before an appointment is confirmed. Consultations with Dr. John Simmonds are $300, which will be applied to the treatment cost if the treatment is done on the same day. Consultations with professional therapists, RNs and NPs are complimentary unless you do not show up on this appointment or do not provide 24 hour advanced notice to which will be considered a same day cancellation.



PRACTICE-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP

We love having you as a patient, but we do reserve the right to refuse service at any time, to anyone, for any reason.



TREATMENT OF COMPLICATION

Although good results are anticipated, there can be no guarantee or warranty, expressed or implied, by anyone as to the actual results you may get. Occasionally additional treatments and/or treatment for problems or complications may be required. These could result in additional charges for which you may be responsible. Your insurance, if you have it, may or may not cover the expenses related to actual complications or other medically related problems arising out of treatment at Spade Skin Care & More.
