Getting Botox During COVID: Is It Safe?

Botox Singapore - As the current pandemic seems to be alleviating here in Singapore, many people who haven't been to their local aesthetic clinic for the longest time might now be seeking out botox Singapore treatments post-lockdown. But is it advisable for these people to get any sort of dermal treatments, especially since there are some worries to be had regarding the COVID-19 vaccines. However, before you start panicking, let's take a look at some things to consider before you seek out your next botox treatment:

Get in touch with your preferred clinic

One thing you can do before making an appointment for your next botox Singapore treatment is to monitor the ongoing situation. The best thing to do in this case would be to make a call to your preferred aesthetic clinic to find out if the necessary precautions pertaining to the current pandemic have been met. These precautions would include the clinic doctors and staff being fully vaccinated and how the clinic itself would deal with any potential COVID transmission, also ascertain and clarify about their mask mandate protocols as well in order to make sure the staff adhere to these safety protocols .

Health screenings to be conducted on site

Health screenings have become commonplace as a result of the pandemic, and it's especially important for clinics even ones specializing in botox Singapore treatments and the like to screen their staff and patients for signs of fever and related symptoms. If you do happen to have an appointment and yet you may exhibit minor signs of a fever during the screening, like your temperature is elevated slightly above normal for example, do not fret! Merely ask the staff to help reschedule your botox Singapore treatment at a later date after you have recovered and rest well at home until your next appointment.

Make sure to wear your mask at all times

Unless prompted otherwise, make sure you wear your mask outside and especially when you're visiting your specialist for your routine botox Singapore treatment. Likewise, make sure to check that the clinic in question adheres to the mandate of wearing a mask at all times, as well as wearing additional personal protection equipment (PPE) such as gloves, face shields and gowns when in contact with patients. Even when your doctor is administering the botox Singapore treatment, listen to their instructions in regards to wearing your mask during the procedure and if there is any need to remove it.

Carefully weigh the risks

Getting your routine botox Singapore injection in the midst of an ongoing global pandemic can be very risky especially if you've yet to be vaccinated or are immuno-compromised and susceptible to catching COVID as a result. Therefore, before you decide to go through with your botox Singapore treatment, weigh the risks and check if the risks outweigh the necessity or vice versa. Do you live with elderly family members or family members who might be at risk of catching COVID, for instance? There are many variables to consider and if the treatment is not really necessary at the moment, maybe it's not worth the risk so take note of that.
