Botox and Covid-19 | Treatments During the Pandemic

Share:

Botox and other beauty procedures are starting up again for many Americans. As things reopen amid the COVID-19 pandemic, doctors are beginning to see patients again. Botox might be high on your to-do list. Professionals say the demand has grown over the past few months. It’s a combination of backlogged appointments and a natural stress response to the pandemic. SKINNEY Medspa is featured on Refinery 29 in an article titled, “Is It Safe To Get Botox Again?” Experts say the situation is different in all states, but no matter where you go, the experience won’t look the same.

For people who have had Botox before, it’s probably worn off over the last couple of months. Stress has become a factor in many of our lives because of the pandemic. This gives those who haven’t had Botox a chance to learn all about it.

Before scheduling a Botox appointment, research your state’s public health guidelines about elective procedures. If your local dermatologist or clinic can reopen, call, and find out what new safety procedures they are taking to keep patients safe. Professionals recomend finding out if the staff is tested for COVID-19 and asking what preventative measures are used to stop the spread in their office. How often are the rooms disinfected? What’s the length of time between procedures?

the office visits

The waiting room at your Botox appointment should be empty. Neethi Masur, a registered nurse at SKINNEY Medspa, says appointments should be staggered to allow for social distancing and more time to clean. “In our office, each Botox patient will have a buffer time before and after their procedure, which is typically inside of 30 minutes. About 15 minutes between patients ensures our office has adequate time to properly clean and sanitize the room with medical-grade disinfectant, and the time-lapse also avoids all unnecessary contact between clients,” said Masur.

Your office visit should not entail any paperwork. Beauty professionals say to do all your medical insurance forms, payment, and paperwork online before the appointment. When you do come to the office, professionals should screen every patient for a fever at the door. Anyone with a fever should be required to reschedule. CDC guidelines for medical facilities say to not penalize a patient for cancelling or missing because they’re sick. Your Botox appointment will require a mask to be worn the entire time. Professionals say it is more difficult to inject Botox wearing a mask. It might have to be slightly maneuvered for injections in certain parts of the face. It shouldn’t last long, and your doctor should be wearing proper PPE
