Important COVID-19 Announcement
We are excited to share that we have been busy, diligently working to welcome you safely back to BenseSurgiSpa, where your personal health and safety are always our highest priority. While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to create unique challenges for us all, we remain focused on ensuring we have effective prevention and safety procedures in place, to ensure your safety and that of our staff.
We ask that you please be kind and patient with our staff. We will be working diligently to reschedule missed appointments due to the Covid-19 closure.
We have made physical changes to our clinic since your last visit, including the installation of new signage and directional floor markers that ensure provincial social distancing requirements are met. Plexiglass shields have also been installed for your safety and to protect our team.To avoid the risk of contamination, we have also removed all product samplings and refreshments such as coffee/tea (bottled water can be provided upon request). All magazines and reading material have also been removed from our treatment areas.
Our plan is to return to work cautiously and in phases that ensure your and our protection. To this end, some procedures may not be available immediately, and we are closely and continuously assessing and implementing new measures to ensure the highest standard of care possible.
Please note that an additional 15 minutes will be allocated between patient appointment times to ensure time for thorough sanitizing of treatment rooms and common areas between treatments. Our staff will also be wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times, including gowns, mask, face shields, booties and hats. They will act in strict accordance with the guidelines provided by the Canadian Society of Aesthetic Specialty Nursing (CSASN), as well as any procedures recommended by health authorities or government related to COVID-19. Staff have also been informed to stay home should they feel unwell or display any symptoms of COVID-19.
Thank you for your loyalty, support, kindess and understanding as we navigate our way back together.
Here is the process we will be using to ensure your safety and protection:
Bookings/Rebookings, Confirmations and Rechecks
We are working diligently to rebook patients that have had appointments cancelled. You will be contacted in order of cancellation date and rescheduled accordingly. We have also created a new portal on our website that will allow you to book or rebook your future appointment with us.
Our confirmation call process will be more extensive, as we will require detailed information on your health and travel prior to visiting our clinic.
Patient post-treatment rechecks will be done over the telephone where feasible, and patients may be requested to forward post-treatment photos to the clinic.
Due to the importance of maintaining safety measures in place, and physical distancing and allowing for appropriate sanitization time in between each patient, we will not be able to accommodate late arrivals. Late arrivals, cancellations in less than 24 hours and no shows will be placed on our waitlist and be rescheduled.
