CLINIC OPEN   Monday, 11 May 2020 

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

COVID-19 PANDEMIC UPDATE:  In Queensland, the Chief Health Officer has given the direction for "Cosmetic injections provided by health practitioners registered under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, with social distancing observed to the extent possible", to recommence effective 1 May 2020.  

Cosmetic injection procedures involve a high risk of exposure, therefore returning to the clinic requires COVID-19 screening, infection control measures, social distancing restrictions (including shortened appointment times) and staging of procedures to keep clients, Suppelle® and our community safe from transmission.

Suppelle® has downloaded the COVIDSafe app.
