SHOW A LITTLE SKINcare Policies
Schedule Appointments / Rebooking / Walk-In's
Appointments are required, We also highly recommend pre-booking your next appointment either online or upon checkout as our schedule tends to reach capacity a least a few weeks in advance.
Your time is valuable and so is ours. We provide services by appointment only. When you book an appointment at SHOW A LITTLE SKINcare you are purchasing time with us so that we may provide you with our expert services. As your Esthetician, I commit to having enough time to serve you. Please arrive on time and precisely at your scheduled time for your appointment.
**COVID-19 UPDATE- When you arrive for your appointment we ask that you remain in your vehicle and text us to let us know that you have arrived. We will text you back when we are ready for you to enter the clinic. Please note we are also not allowing any additional guests to accompany clients during services. The only exception is if a minor is receiving treatment then a parent/legal guardian is required to be present during treatment.**
Clients will not be taken earlier than their scheduled appointment time unless we have contacted you prior to your appointment and offered you the option of an earlier start time.
Please keep in mind that we have scheduled breaks and a time to eat lunch during our busy day. We know you will understand when we say that we will not forfeit those needed time **COVID-19 UPDATE- For us to remain compliant with state/county/CDC guidelines for modified reopening practices we are required to maintain gaps in our schedule between clients to allow for thorough cleaning/sanitizing/disinfection between each client service. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all adjust to our “new normal”.**If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment please do so at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. We understand that life gets busy and sometimes things come up. Please be respectful of our time and the time of our other clients. The cancellation/ no show policy will always be enforced.
**COVID-19 UPDATE- We are requiring all clients who are sick or have been sick in the last 14 days to reschedule their appointment until they have been healthy for a MINIMUM of 14 days. This includes ANYONE in your home/ ANYONE you have been exposed to who is sick or has been sick in the last 14 days. We are requiring appointments to be rescheduled if you, or anyone in your home or anyone you work in close proximity to is awaiting the results of a COVID-19 TEST. Once you/they have a NEGATIVE test result you may reschedule your service appointment. We will do our best to get you back in for an appointment as quickly as possible**
Our waitlist is usually filled to capacity every day, this allows time for another client to be offered your appointment time.
**We hope our clients will understand and appreciate that we were forced to shut down for 8.5 MONTHS. That is a very long time for a small business to have almost no revenue coming in to pay all the bills that did not stop needing to be paid. We have a lot of time/revenue to make up for and we cannot make any special exceptions for anyone in regards to fees**
Appointments canceled within 24 hours up to 2 hours of the scheduled appointment time will be charged 50% of the service fee.
Appointments canceled within 2 hours of scheduled appointment will be charged 100% of the service fee.

If you have or think you have COVID-19 or if ANYONE IN YOUR HOME has COVID-19 symptoms as long as you call/text IMMEDATELY to cancel your appointment you will not be charged a cancellation fee if you can show proof of a COVID TEST result for said illness. Regardless if it comes back positive or negative if your physician felt it justified a test to rule out or confirm COVID-19 then we will waive the cancellation fee. Please note you will need a note from your physician confirming you are healthy and cleared to receive services**
NO CALL/ NO SHOW will be automatically charged 100% of the service fee that was missed.

- Client non-compliance with home care product use
- Habitual tardiness/cancellations
- Disregard of our professional advice is a waste of our time and your money.
- Rude or inappropriate behavior of kind to anyone on the premises
- **COVID-19 UPDATE- Any client who comes to the clinic exhibiting ANY symptoms of illness will be refused service and will be charged 100% of the service fee. Any client who does so a second time will be permanently refused future services at SHOW A LITTLE SKINcare.

JUST DON’T DO IT. PERIOD.
Minors / Teens
Minor teens and children coming in for appointments must be accompanied by their parent or guardian during the ENTIRE appointment. All intake/consent forms for minors must be signed by their parent or guardian at the start of every appointment.
Generally, it is not recommended that you bring your children with you to your appointment as your service should be a time for you to take for yourself and as a parent myself, I know it is difficult to keep tabs on a child while laying down with your eyes closed.
However, we understand that sometimes we don’t always have childcare available so if you do need to bring your child to your appointment you may do so as long as they are able to sit quietly either in the waiting area or in the treatment room with us in the chair provided.
If your child is overly disruptive to the point of inhibiting my ability to provide the service or disrupts any of the products on the shelves, equipment, or furnishings your service will end at that point at the full price. You will need to make arrangements for childcare for future appointments.
Clients will be held financially responsible for anything damaged by their child during the appointment.
Any Child left unattended will be given caffeine and sugar and taught to curse like a sailor! 😉
