Thinking about a medi-spa treatment? Make sure to stay safe:
- Thoroughly research the spa you are thinking of going to. Don't be afraid to ask the difficult questions, check their track record, and try to speak to someone who has had treatments there before.
- Insist on an in-depth personal consultation before the treatment.
- Find out as much as you can about the treatment you will be having - whether it's suitable for your skin or body type, how invasive it will be, how much recovery time you will need, and what the associated risks are.
- Ensure a pre-treatment allergy test is done with the products - if the spa doesn't voluntarily suggest it, they are not doing a professional job.
Please confirm treatment prices and deals at the time of booking.
