24.03.2020 CLINIC CLOSURE - Protecting You
The Australian Federal Government ordered ALL NON ESSENTIAL services to cease at 12 midday, Monday 23 March 2020.
The Australian Federal Government included the cosmetic industry as part of the "Beauty and Personalised Services" category to cease at 12 midnight, Wednesday 25 March 2020.
It is important to understand that cosmetic injections are ELECTIVE procedures. That means they are NOT ESSENTIAL services.
Despite strictly adhering to every rule of infection control and COVID-19 screening measures to protect each and every client, the fact is a cosmetic injection procedure involves physically touching every person's face:
- around the EYES (brow, crows feet/eye lines, tear troughs)
- around the NOSE (nose, nasolabial/cheek folds)
- around the MOUTH (lips, lip lines, marionette folds)
- the whole FACE.
These are the specific areas we are told NOT to touch ourselves to prevent transmission.
Social distancing requires 1.5m between people. Physical distancing is not possible at all when injecting.
A public health emergency has been declared and all hospitals (public and private) Australia wide have now cancelled all ELECTIVE / NON ESSENTIAL surgeries, so the direction is clear.
Suppelle® made the medically ethical decision to close the clinic effective 24 March 2020. Suppelle will continue to sell skin care with mail deliveries.
Suppelle® will remain closed "until the end of the declared public health emergency, unless they are revoked or replaced" as per Queensland Health. (Clinic review 20 April 2020)
Client safety is and has always been a priority at Suppelle®.
Clients with existing appointments will be notified directly.
