Covid-19 Safety Measures

IMPORTANT UPDATE MARCH 2021:

The Aesthetic Complications Expert Group has produced guidelines for dermal filler treatment in relation to the COVID-19 vaccination. It is recommended to not have dermal filler treatment either 3 weeks before or 3 weeks after the COVID-19 vaccination. Although there are only a very small number of cases there is a risk of inflammatory reactions and soft tissue swellings in patients who have had fillers, or plan to have treatment, after receiving the vaccination. There is no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccination or infection has a detrimental effect on other aesthetic procedures. However, as patients may become unwell and experience flu-like symptoms following the vaccination, the ACE group recommends avoiding other aesthetic treatments for 1-week post vaccine. Please follow the link to read the full ACE guidance: https://uk.acegroup.online/blog/2021/03/06/covid-19-fillers/

We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and we have implemented the Save Face Covid-19 Operational Protocols.
