BOOKING AND CHANGING APPOINTMENTS
You can book all appointments via our online portal, or by phone at 1(604) 371-2113. A credit card, gift card or prepayment is required at the time of booking to hold all appointments. Please advise of changes or cancellations to the reservation 48 hours prior to your reservation via phone or email to email@example.com. Respectfully, late cancellations or changes incur the full appointment fee. Consultations will be charged a fee of $100 plus applicable tax for missed appointments or late cancellations.
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. If you are late for an appointment we may need to shorten or cancel your treatment and the full scheduled appointment fee may still apply.
Please arrive at your appointment with clean skin. We recommend that men shave the morning of their scheduled treatment. All laser hair removal treatments require shaving 24 hours prior to arrival.
Whether it’s the room temperature, position of the bed, conversation level, please notify us of any preferences. Our qualified therapists are trained to respect your comfort and privacy.
While in our venue, we ask that you kindly respect our staff, facilities, policies and the enjoyment of other guests. We operate a very positive, professional and loving environment.
At Raw Canvas Skin Bar our therapist is certified in all respective services. You will always be treated by a caring, qualified professional.
For any additional dietary requirements, allergies, conditions (including pregnancy) or disabilities not advised at the time of making the reservation, please contact us so we can assist in making the appropriate choices or modifications. While all care is taken, Raw Canvas Skin Bar can not guarantee any of our treatments (or catering) are completely free from traces of allergens, or appropriate for any medical condition. Please seek prior advice from your doctor or healthcare professional. Patients being treated for chronic medical conditions or cancer should provide a written clearance from their doctor.
PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING
Due to increased sensitivity and various hormonal changes during pregnancy, there are some treatment contraindications and special precautions for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. We recommend that you check with your doctor on your individual needs prior to booking any treatment.
An additional consent form must be signed to proceed for all pregnant and breastfeeding guests. Due to manufacturers instruction all other treatments including facials, peels, laser and clinic treatments are contraindicated during pregnancy. If you have any concerns regarding sensitivity, please consult your doctor prior to booking.
Prior to any treatment, please use our consultation forms to disclose to Raw Canvas Skin Bar your medical history, including any medical conditions, pre-existing injuries, infectious diseases, skin conditions, allergies, and pregnancy. If your health conditions have changed since first completing the forms, please advise us as soon as possible and prior to your next treatment to allow us to make the necessary adjustments. If at any time during your services you experience discomfort, please alert your therapist immediately.
Gift Cards issued for any promotional purposes, including customer service and store credits are valid for 12 months and can be redeemed for the treatments nominated. Gift Cards purchased for a dollar amount can be used towards the products or services of your choice at any time. Gift Card numbers should be quoted at the time of booking your appointment and presented on arrival. Should you provide less than 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment booked using a gift card, the cost of the treatment(s) booked may be deduced from the card balance. Gift cards cannot be exchanged for cash or used to purchase products, gift cards or discounted packages/ promotions. Please keep your card safe as it can not be replaced if lost or stolen. *Gift cards redemptions may be paused in the 6 weeks before Christmas if redemption reaches capacity.
