COVID-19 Client Safety Policy



Version 9: 10-04-2021


Firstly, welcome back to Nilosa.  We can't wait to catch up with our regulars and meet new clients.  Like last year, we are returning in 2021 after another Lockdown which resulted in a further 4 month closure for our business. 

Close Contact Services are still under strict guidelines and we continue to conform fully to the requirements to keep ourselves and our clients safe.

  • All clients will require patch tests (existing and new) for the following treatments:

       Lash/brow treatments & Chemical peels

       Patch tests should not be carried out within 2 weeks post receiving your COVID Vaccine.  Please bear this in mind when booking for your patch test.

  • Advanced aesthetic treatments (SPMU, skin peels, skin needling, dermaplaning, Plasma Skin Therapy, HIFU)  cannot be carried out within 7 days of receiving your COVID Vaccine.  Please ensure you do not book an appointment for any of those treatments unless it will be a minimum of 7 days after you have had the vaccine.
