For all our patients that have been vaccinated against COVID-19:

Treatments with muscle relaxants can be performed up to 2 weeks BEFORE receiving a vaccination against COVID-19 and 2 weeks AFTER receiving a vaccination against COVID-19. Please ensure sufficient time between booking your appointment and vaccination to ensure your treatment with muscle relaxants can go ahead.

Treatments with hyaluronic acid/dermal fillers can be performed up to 2 weeks BEFORE receiving a vaccination against COVID-19 and 6 weeks AFTER receiving a vaccination against COVID-19. Please ensure sufficient time between booking your appointment and vaccination to ensure your treatment with hyaluronic acid can go ahead.

For all our patients that have tested positive for COVID-19:

Treatments with hyaluronic acid or muscle relaxants are possible no earlier than 6 weeks AFTER you have finished quarantining. If you still have long-term effects from the virus at that time, we ask that you cancel your appointment, as we will be unable to perform any treatments.

We carry out these policies for your protection and ask for your understanding.
