The recent COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed the way we live our lives. Things aren’t quite back to normal yet, so you may be wondering what types of health and spa services might be available during this time. If you’re ready to get some pampering done, here’s what you need to know about whether MedSpa services are open – and safe – during the COVID-19 pandemic.
What Services are Open?
The good news is that MedSpa services are open during this time! Depending on your area’s infection rate and local regulations, you may find that certain services will be off the table, but in general, you can expect that botox and chemical peels are still available. You’ll have to check with your local place to see which services they are still offering specifically. Some services may not be available.
Are They Safe?
Yes, getting botox, chemical peels, and other MedSpa services is safe. So far, there has been no scientific indication that these services increase the spread of COVID-19 as long as proper precautions are followed. To ensure the safety of patients and staff, MedSpa providers such as IV League will implement CDC-recommended measures.
Typical Safety Precautions
To limit the potential spread of the virus, MedSpa providers should follow certain procedures. These protocols will be set in place so you’ll know before you arrive what to expect. Here are some general protocols that might be followed:
- You might be asked to provide a negative COVID test or have your temperature taken upon arrival. You might also be screened for other symptoms.
- Patients might be requested to call the office as they wait in their car. When it’s time for their appointment, they’ll be called or texted to come in.
- Masks should be worn into the building and in the waiting room. The waiting room might be skipped altogether as patients are led straight to their treatment room.
- Hand sanitizer should be placed at the entrance and reception.
- Generally, patients should arrive alone, without any accompanying friends or family, to limit exposure.
- Payment may be required over the phone or online before your appointment to limit hand-to-hand contact.
- Waiting rooms, treatment rooms, reception desks, and offices should be regularly sanitized and disinfected between patients.
- When treatment begins, the patient can remove their mask, but staff should keep theirs on.
