Please arrive for your appointment at least 10 minutes in advance so that the necessary paperwork can be completed. Late arrival may result in reduced treatment time or forfeiting of the appointment. Gild Clinic will endeavour to ensure that your appointment runs to time; however, should we need to cancel or postpone your appointment at short notice, we will make every effort to contact you in advance.
Prior to your appointment we will inform you of any preparation required in advance of your treatment. Failure to follow the guidelines may result in cancellation of your appointment, reduced treatment time, or additional fees being charged.
Any client who requires treatment and brings a child with them must also be accompanied by another adult to chaperone the child whilst the client is being treated. Failure to bring an adult chaperone with any child will result in the treatment being cancelled and loss of the value pack treatment or deposit. No children under the age of 16 years must be left unattended within the clinic at any time.

You may cancel or reschedule your appointment free of charge up to 24 hours before your scheduled appointment start time by contacting us on 0203 884 3246 during normal working hours, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You may cancel or reschedule your training clinic appointment free of charge up to 72 hours before your scheduled appointment start time by contacting us on 0203 884 3246 during normal working hours, or by email at email@example.com.
Should you give less than 72 hours written notice or fail to attend a training clinic treatment session, Gild Clinic will retain your full deposit.
Gild Clinic reserves the right to cancel any treatment with any given notice period.
The use of and indications for the products that patients will be treated with will be explained by the training practitioner and patients will have the opportunity to have all questions answered to their satisfaction prior to treatment. It is the patient’s responsibility to seek further clarification from their training practitioner if questions about the procedure remain, this must be done prior to treatment.
Clients will be specifically informed of the following common injection-related reactions: redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the treatment site. These reactions are generally described as mild to moderate and typically resolve spontaneously a few days after treatment. These reactions are normal and are to be expected. Again, clients must clarify any doubts with their practitioner prior to treatment.
For muscle relaxation injections with Botulinum toxin Type A: Patients will be advised by their practitioner of the expected outcomes and risks associated with this treatment based on the current product Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC). In particular, practitioner and patient have discussed realistic outcomes regarding the onset of action and the duration of effect, together with the potential side effects including those relating to the site of injection and the generalised common and uncommon side effects including headaches, muscle activity disorders (raised eyebrows), feeling of heaviness in the upper part of the face, accumulation of fluid in the eyelids (eyelid oedema), drooping eyelids (eyelid ptosis), inflammation of the eyelid, eye pain, blurred vision, fainting, noises in the ears (tinnitus), nausea, dizziness, muscle twitching, muscle cramps, localised muscle weakness in the face (drooping eyebrow), dry mouth, flu symptoms, influenza, bronchitis, inflammation of the nose and throat, infection and in rare cases, excessive muscle weakness and difficulties in swallowing.
The practitioner will also inform clients that depending on the product used, area treated, skin type and the injection technique, the effect of anti-wrinkle treatment typically lasts between 2 and 4 months. In some cases the duration may be shorter or longer. Gild Clinic accepts no responsibility for the effects of treatment lasting longer or shorter than the expected timeframes, and any follow-up treatments will be regarded as a new treatment requiring payment.
Other types of reaction are rare, but approximately one in every 10,000 patients treated with a dermal filler has experienced localised allergic reactions after one or more injection treatments. These have usually consisted of swelling and firmness at the treatment site, sometimes affecting the surrounding tissues. Redness, tenderness and rarely acne-like formations have also been reported. These reactions have either started a few days after injection or after a delay of several weeks. They have been described as mild to moderate and self-limiting, with an average duration of two weeks. In rare instances such reactions or lump formations like granulomas have persisted for a number of months. Gild Clinic practitioners will ensure that clients have been made aware of this before treatment begins, and it is the clients’ responsibility to raise any concerns with their practitioner before treatment commences.
Gild Clinic will not be held liable for any side effects caused as a result of safe and proper treatment if prior explanation about the associated risks has been given.
On very rare occasions (less than one in 15,000) prolonged firmness, abscess formation or greyish discolouration at the implant site has occurred. These reactions can develop weeks to months following the injections and may persist for several months but normally resolve with time. Even more rarely, the formation of a scab and sloughing (shedding) of tissue at the treatment site has been noted, which could result in a shallow scar.
A report published in 2012 discussed 32 reported incidents of blindness following dermal filler treatment in areas including the glabellar frown lines, under eye area, and temple1. In a separate study published in 2013, of the 6 visual disturbance cases reported, 3 were following glabellar frown line treatment with dermal filler2. Should any of these side effects occur after treatment, Gild Clinic cannot be held responsible.
Depending on the product used, area treated, skin type and the injection technique, the effect of dermal filler treatment can last 4 – 12 months. In some cases the duration may be shorter or longer. Follow-up treatment will help to maintain the desired correction. All follow up treatments are treated as a new, separate procedure and will therefore incur further costs in line with those on the Gild Clinic website.
In the event of an adverse reaction clients will be advised by their practitioner to seek further help/consultation immediately. Gild Clinic will not be held liable for adverse reactions to treatments.
Clients should be aware that if they attend a GILD Clinic Training Clinic the treatment performed, any images taken, and clinical notes will be used as part of the trainee’s (student’s) confidential portfolio. Practitioners will advise clients on the amount of product required and the cost of the treatment, which clients agree to pay upon demand.
Suitability for Treatment
As with any medical procedure, a full medical history and facial assessment is required before treatment. For injectable treatments (anti-wrinkle injections & dermal filler) clients must be over 21 years old, for skin treatments clients must be over 18 years old. As a government regulated medical training provider, Gild Clinic strictly adheres to guidance published by the General Medical Council and ensure that all practitioners and trainee practitioners (students) are fully educated in this. If our Gild Clinic training practitioners feel that on the day of treatment the client is not suitable or would not benefit from the treatment being delivered, the treatment will not go ahead and the deposit payment will be refunded. Despite the discounted price of all treatments for the purpose of educating students, we strongly encourage all clients to consider all treatments prior to undergoing them and not rush into any decisions. Clients are encouraged to ask as many questions as they need both prior to, and on the treatment day.
