We do not offer international shipping via our online shop. However, by special request, we may consider shipping orders to an international address if the client agrees to the following terms of shipment:
- Internationally shipping costs more than shipping within the UK, thus, the client agrees to pay the higher cost of delivery and packaging plus 10% admin charge.
- The client agrees to pay any customs or import duties charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Adexcel Aesthetics Clinic has no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.
It is recommended that you contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.
Prescriptions for registered patients only
Prescription request are only available to patients registered with The Adexcel Aesthetic and Skin Clinic. By acknowledging that you are a patient of the practice you confirm that you are willing to submit to providing information for examination for the medical team to make the necessary assessment to allow a pharmacist to supply/dispense your product(s) or medicines.
Following your consultation, one of our clinical team will issue you with a prescription for your prescription-only products, which we will keep on file. You will also be issued with a series of repeat prescriptions which are required for you to complete your Obagi program or other medical grade treatment course. Whilst we hold repeat prescriptions for you on file, you will not need a further consultation, unless you order a different product or your medical history changes. Each time a product is dispensed and dispatched to you, a prescription is used up. You can continue to re-order your products until you have used up all of your repeat prescriptions for that particular product. Should you wish to continue with your treatment program after you have used up your repeat prescriptions, then you will have to have a new consultation with a member of our medical team before any further products can be dispatched to you.
