Coronavirus Mangement at Highland Laser Clinic

Screening


We are doing everything in our power to prevent cross infection to our customers. Due to the nature of our work, it is impossible to maintain social distancing during procedures so it is impossible to eliminate this risk entirely.

Because of this, we would rather not treat customers who are regarded at high risk of the effects of Covid-19 in their best interests. We apologise in advance if this conflicts with your desire to just get on with your life, but we have to do what we think is best.

You will be asked to fill in this questionnaire on arrival, so please read the following carefully to save yourself a wasted trip. If you answer YES to any of the following questions, we are unable to treat you at the moment:

 I have received official or medical advice to SHIELD during any phase of the pandemic
 I suspect I might currently have Covid-19
 I have tested positive to Covid-19 in the last 28 days
 I am awaiting a test result for Covid-19 taken in the last 14 days
 In the last 14 days I have experienced any of the following symptoms: New frequent cough, high temperature or fever, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of or change in sense of smell or taste
 I live with someone who has either tested positive for Covid-19 or had symptoms of Covid-19 in the last 14 days

We will do everything possible to minimise transmission of coronavirus. However there is a small residual risk of cross-infection during your visit, as there is with any social interaction during the pandemic. If you wish to undertake treatment it is with that understanding and you will not hold Highland Laser Clinic responsible should you contract Covid-19 subsequent to your visit.

About our Medical Grade HEPA Extraction Machine

office clean-up-scaled

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.
