coronavirus(covid 19) infection prevention & control policy for skin luxe
The coronavirus pandemic has affected all of us. We just want to say a big thank you to everyone for your messages of support during this difficult unprecedented time, they have meant so much to us.
We have missed being able to offer you the treatments that we know you love, and we are looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible in our salon.
Our priority is to keep our clients as safe as possible, and prior to re-opening the salon we have implemented a number of changes which we would like to make you aware of.
During the time the salon has been shut, we have completed the BARBICIDE COVID-19 professional beauty industry training and understanding of proper sanitisation and disinfection practices and procedures consistent with the current highest industry standards.
Please continue to keep in mind that should any of our staff feel ill or have symptoms of COVID-19, they will self-isolate immediately and not come into the salon. This may mean that we have to cancel your appointment at short notice. We appreciate that this may be inconvenient but it is done entirely for your own safety.
If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of COVID-19 we ask that you advise us as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT.
VISITING OUR SALON
For your safety and to maintain social distancing, we ask that you attend your appointments as close to the appointment time as possible. Please do not turn up early for appointments as this may mean that you come into contact with other clients who are just leaving.
We have increased the frequency of cleaning in the salon including making sure that common surfaces, toilets door handles etc. are wiped clean using disinfectant products more frequently.
All of our equipment will be disinfected and sanitised after each use and wherever possible we will utilise environmentally, friendly, single use items during a treatment that will be disposed of safely after use in order to protect you from cross infection.
Hand sanitiser will also be available for you to use when you come into the salon.
We will understand and not be offended if you wish to wear a facemask or wear disposable gloves when you visit the salon and during your treatment if this is appropriate.
Please don’t be surprised or upset if our staff use personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and during your treatment. This may include disposable gloves / facemasks / aprons where appropriate.
We have carried out and will continue to risk asses all treatments and we are confident that we can continue to provide these safely, should it be decided for your safety that treatment can not be carried out you will be informed at the earliest opportunity.
DURING YOUR TREATMENT
Our staff understand the importance of hand hygiene and we will ensure that we wash our hands in according with NHS recommendations before the start of your treatment.
We will try to make your treatment as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any concerns about your treatments please let us know and we will do what we can to satisfy you.
All of these procedures have been implemented for your safety and that of our staff. We will continue to take advice from the Government and the NHS regarding safe practice and will amend them as necessary.
Thank you for your understanding, support and cooperation.
Owner, Beauty Therapy Practitioner
