HOW WE ARE KEEPING OUR PATIENTS AND TEAM SAFE
To reduce risk in our community and practice during the pandemic, Albemarle Dermatology Associates & Signature Medical Spa ask the following:
Continue to wear a face mask even after you are vaccinated against Covid-19
Reschedule your appointment if you are awaiting a Covid-19 test result
Reschedule your appointment if you have any symptoms of illness
Reschedule your appointment if you are in the first 2 weeks of recovery from Covid-19
Come alone to your appointment unless you are under the age of 18 (must be accompanied by a parent or guardian) or you have mobility or communication assistance needs
Receive a vaccination as soon as possible
VACCINE SAFETY FOR DERMAL FILLER PATIENTS
1. In the Moderna vaccine trial there were a total of three reactions possibly related to dermal fillers out of 15,184 recipients. There has always been the possibility of inflammatory reactions after dermal fillers even without the COVID vaccine. There does not seem to be a higher incidence of inflammatory reactions after fillers in the Moderna vaccine trial as compared with long-term safety data from years of injectable fillers in individuals who have not received the COVID vaccine.
2. All three inflammatory reactions seen after the Moderna vaccine resolved completely.
3. Dermal fillers should be administered by board-certified physicians who are experts in the injection procedure itself as well as treating any potential complications.
