We recommend booking your sunbed in advance and not just showing up. This is to ensure you get a sunbed and are not disappointed by being turned away due to having no sunbeds available.
If you cannot make it in for your appointment, use the confirmation email you received (sometimes goes into junk folder) to reschedule your appointment. If you simply cancel the sunbed the value of your sunbed will be lost.
Once your appointment time has came you will no longer be able to reschedule your appointment and if you do not show the value of your appointment (minutes or money) will be lost.
All sunbeds are sanitised after each and every use using an appropriate disinfectant cleaner with disposable towels. Please do your best to leave the sunbed in a clean tidy condition as it was when you arrived for your appointment.
INFORMATION FOR SUNBED USERS
Using sunbeds can harm your health in the long term. Sunbeds have been linked to:—

- Eye damage including a higher risk of cataracts (an eye disease in which the lens of the eye becomes covered in an opaque film.
- Have had skin cancer in the past.
- Have a family history of skin cancer.
- Have fair or sensitive skin.
- Burn eye film that affects sight and may eventually cause total loss of sight) – if appropriate eye protection is not worn.
- premature skin ageing which means that your skin becomes coarse, leathery and wrinkled at a younger age.
- The health risks of using a sunbed are greater than any possible benefits they might provide in helping the body create Vitamin D.
There are also short term health effects:—
