Welcome to our COVID-19 Information Page. We will keep this updated with the latest changes around the office as well as new FAQs as they arise.
Update on May 22, 2020
I am really excited to announce that the office will be re-opening on Monday May 25th. Booking is now available for in-person appointments.
We will be implementing a new Car-to-Clinic Touchless Workflow, which requires all of our clients to follow some instructions to ensure your treatment experience is as seamless as possible.
In addition, we will be following Infectious control recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the American Medical Association (AMA), and America Med Spa Association (AmSpa) in addition to our new PFAM Protective Procedures.
Does my Botox/microneedling/laser treatment increase my risk for contracting COVID?
Not at all. COVID is spread person to person via droplet or through touching an infected surface and then your own mucous membranes. While an interruption in your skin’s barrier increases risk for bacterial infection, COVID requires access to the mucus membranes of your respiratory system or around your eyes. You will be no more susceptible to COVID post-treatment than before the treatment.
Can I get COVID from the PFAM skincare products I ordered?
Not a chance. We package all our orders from the office in La Jolla, and for the foreseeable future, will be doing so while masked and gloved.
As this crisis continues to evolve, remember that part of staying safe is to be well informed. Rely on facts from the CDC and WHO instead of the pseudoscience and fear based advice that tends to gain a foothold during times of panic. We here at PFAM promise to continually evolve our office practices and procedures to stay in line with the latest CDC recommendations.
