Covid is still a thing, and will remain so for the rest of our lives.
A clean environment is important for laser procedures and we will continue to take care in ensuring everything you come in contact with is maintained to a good standard of hygeine. However, we are no longer taking specific measures to stop the spread of Covid at this time.
You are welcome to wear a mask to your appointment. Obviously if we are treating your face, you will have to remove it for this part of your procedure. Your operator will not normally wear a mask, but will put one on at your request, no questions asked.
We will update this page if any new advice or guidelines are put in place.
Research has shown that viruses such as coronavirus travel attached to moisture particles produced when talking or coughing. They may also be released during laser procedures.
Aerosols produced by people when they breathe, talk and cough are generally between about 0.7 microns to around 10 microns. Our medical grade extraction machine is fitted with H14 HEPA filters. H14 is proven to filter 99.7% of particles below 0.3 microns
HEPA filters well exceed the 95% of filtration that N95 masks can provide. In fact, HEPA filters match the FFP3/N100 level of filtration.
Using the extraction arm allows contaminants to be captured at source.
