Although we always try our best to accomodate patients, our provider's time is valuable and as a respect and courtesy to them and other patients our company has the following cancellation policy:
- We understand that sometimes emergencies happen and patients need to reschedule. There is no penalty for the first missed or rescheduled Laser Hair Removal, Exilis, or Microneedling treatment. After first missed treatment, if these appointements are cancelled less than 48 hours prior to appointment time, it will result in losing one treatment session of your package.
