Face 5 Policies
We are here to provide you with the very best care and attention. In our commitment to provide an outstanding experience to all of our clients, and out of consideration for our acne specialists, we have adopted the following policies.
Consultations and Health Information are required for all new clients to Face 5
Acne is not something just one facial will clear up. It takes commitment to diet, lifestyle, skincare, etc. We start all our clients off right with a consultation. Our consultation includes education in acne-safe-diet, acne-safe-lifestyle, non-pore clogging skincare & haircare, what to expect with our program and cost of our services. Nothing will be a surprise. However, you will be surprised at all the information we share with you during this consultation. For us to provide you with the best acne care plan which is customized just for YOU, your health Information is necessary. Your allergy list, medications, health history, etc. are all needed to help us determine the best approach to care we can provide.
Arrival at the Office
Please arrive for your appointment on time to ensure a complete session. This allows you the time to talk and ask questions of your acne specialist. For the Virtual appointment, please be ready to start at the time of appointment. Technical difficulties happen, but most can be avoided by being prepared ahead of time.
You may cancel your appointment with no charge with at least 24 hours’ notice. However, we understand that life happens and an emergency comes up. Therefore, we give one free-pass per client and will send a reminder email about our cancellation policy. However, the second time you cancel or reschedule within 24 hours of your appointment, you will be charged $50 to the credit card you used to reserve your appointment.
- Local Clinic Clients: If you arrive late, your session will be shortened to the remainder of your original scheduled appointment. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late without any notice, you will be asked to reschedule.
- Virtual Clients: If you are not available at the time of your appointment for a virtual meeting, your session will be shortened to the remainder of your original scheduled appointment. If you are not available for the meeting more than 10 minutes, you will be asked to reschedule.
Out of consideration and respect of our acne specialists’ time, if a client does not show up for a scheduled appointment and does not provide any advanced notice, the client will be charged the full price of the scheduled visit to the credit card used to reserve the appointment.
Please Note: Not receiving an automated reminder is NOT an acceptable excuse for missing an appointment. These automated reminders are a courtesy to keep you on track with your schedule and should not be relied upon as your sole method of keeping track of your appointment.
Payment & Pricing
We accept cash, check, and major credit cards. If a teen client is attending the appointment without a parent/guardian, please make a payment arrangement before the appointment time. All pricing for services and products are subject to change at any time.
Since we are not offering spa style “fu-fu” facials, we do not accept gratuities. Please spend your tip money on your products or services instead.
We love small children, however, in order to get the full benefit of your treatment time, please come in without small children or please have them wait in our waiting room with a responsible party.
Products may be returned within 30 days for a full refund, provided they have not been opened and/or used. We do not offer refunds on any treatment, however, we will discuss other options with you if you are unhappy with the services provided by Face 5.
You may purchase products online and pick up at Face 5 Acne Clinic in Colorado Springs during the business hours of Face 5 Acne Clinic. In order to do so, the products must be purchased on our website before you pick up. No exceptions.
Concurrent Skincare Treatment Policy
Please let our acne specialists know if you intend to receive any other skincare treatments, which include waxing, laser treatment, etc. Depending on your chosen procedure, we might need to stop our treatment for a short period.
While we make recommendations of supplements that are beneficial for treating acne, we are not medical doctors. All supplement recommendations are for acne treatment purposes only and not meant to substitute any advice of medical doctors.
- If you are prone to cold sores, please take an antiviral medication before your appointment. If you have a cold sore, please wait until it has healed before coming in for an appointment. We cannot perform a treatment if you have a cold sore.
- For our own health and wellness and that of other clients, it is our policy that we will not treat anyone who is exhibiting cold or flu symptoms, or currently has an infection of any kind, We ask that if you have a cold, fever, the flu, infection, virus or feel as though one is coming on, please cancel and reschedule your appointment. If you have a cold, infection, virus or a similar illness when you arrive for your appointment, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.
All information provided on our website, email, or text is for educational purposes only and is not to be used for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. If we are unable to improve the condition of your skin due to factors beyond our control, but within yours, we reserve the right to decline treatments. You must comply with all instructions given by your acne specialist, including home care, lifestyle issues, etc.
