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 August 11, 2020
I am really excited to announce that we are offering our full menu of services! Just head to our appointments page to book your treatment today.
We have installed state of the art industrial grade UVC light bulbs into the AC system that when combined with existing high air turnover in the office leads to a reduction of 99.9% of circulating viruses and bacteria in the air.
We've also implemented a 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.
