Consultation Appointment Slots
Our consultation appointments are FREE. However, we do take a booking fee of £25 to secure your consultation with our Pharmacist Prescriber – Sarah Newey. If you are unable to pay this when you first book, the appointment slot will be held for you for 24 hours, after which time it can be taken by other patients. The clinic accepts bank transfer, cash, debit and credit cards including American Express. Unfortunately we do not accept cheques or payment via the telephone.
Consultation appointments are usually for 30 minutes unless a full skin care consultation is required, this would then be for 60 minutes. These appointments are standalone appointments in which the patient and the clinician discuss treatment but none is carried out.
Following your consultation, if you would like to book a treatment appointment slot, we will ask you for a further £25 to make a total deposit of £50 against the treatment. The initial booking fee of £25 can also be kept for 3 months on your account as a credit towards future treatments or products recommended to you.
If you decide not tot go ahead with a treatment the £25 booking fee can be refunded to you upon request as long as you attend your appointment and the request for refund is made within 14 days of your initial consultation. Depending upon your method of payment, this can take up to 10 working days to be credited back to you.
If you are not suitable for treatment, we will inform you as to the reasons why and we may refer you onto another professional. In this instance your £25 booking fee will be refunded to you. Depending upon your method of payment, this can take up to 10 working days to be credited back to you.
Treatment Appointment Slots
For certain treatment appointment types we will ask you for a £50 booking fee to be paid at the point of reservation. The clinic accepts bank transfer, cash, debit and credit cards including American Express. Unfortunately we do not accept cheques or payment via the telephone. If you are unable to pay this when you first book, the appointment slot will be held for you for 24 hours, after which time it can be taken by other patients.
You will be advised of the cost of any planned treatment following the consultation. The £50 booking fee will be deducted from this. The balance of payment is taken in full on the day of the treatment. The clinic accepts bank transfer, cash, debit and credit cards including American Express. Unfortunately we do not accept cheques.
Bank Details for a bank transfer are as follows:
Sort code: 040004
Account number: 94743968
Cancellation or Rescheduling your appointment
We understand that occasionally you may need to reschedule your appointment time or you may prefer to cancel. Should you need to do this – we ask for at least 48 hours’ notice. We reserve the right to charge you £25 for consultation appointments and £50 for treatment appointments if you fail to notify us within this timeframe. For pre-paid courses, this will result in one treatment being redeemed by the clinic. For a reward treatment this may result in the loss of your reward.
We do our best to accommodate late arrivals. However, there may be times when a late arrival will result in reduced consultation time, rescheduling or cancellation of your appointment. We reserve the right to charge you £25 for consultation appointments and £50 for treatment appointments in this instance. For pre-paid courses this may result in one treatment being redeemed by the clinic.
Online Booking Through Shedul
It is possible for you to book your consultation and treatment appointments online through our online booking system Shedul. Once you have selected your appointment type and time you will be asked to confirm your appointment with your bank card details. Your payment details will be securely saved and NO PAYMENT will be taken at this stage. We operate a strict late cancellation and no-show policy with remote charging of penalty fees which is different to booking via the telephone, through social media or through the website. Should you provide less than 48 hours notice for rescheduling or cancelling your appointment then you will be charged 50% of the appointment fee. Should you not show up for your appointment then you will be charged 100% of your appointment fee. Please bear this in mind when booking your appointment. Please note it is NOT possible to book a reward treatment online through Shedul.
For safety reasons, children are not permitted into the clinic rooms and cannot be left alone in any other areas of the clinic. We would therefore advise you not to bring your children to your appointment. However, if it cannot be avoided, please bring another responsible adult along with you to look after any children aged 12 or under. Thank you for your understanding.

- Finesse Skin Clinic does not issue refunds under any circumstances for Acts of God. An Act of God is defined as an event outside of human control such as sudden floods, earthquakes or other natural disasters, for which no one can be held responsible.

Finesse Skin Clinic will make all reasonable effort to replace a cancelled clinic by arranging an alternative date. There is no compensation for late running appointments or other factors that are beyond the control of the clinic and its staff.

- As explained on our consent form, clients will be expected to pay for additional treatment if the original treatment does not achieve the desired look. Results cannot be guaranteed and the treatment of side effects and complications is included in the cost of the procedure. Therefore no refunds can be given due to any of the above occurring. Our aim is for service users to be delighted with their results, however, we are also very careful to manage expectations, hence the thorough pre-treatment consultation.
