Annabel Jones, Beauty Editor at large interviews Mr Olivier Amar about reopening and gradually treating patients in a Covid-secure setting.

The good news is aesthetic medical practitioners are starting to reopen their doors as BCAM (British College of Aesthetic Medicine) quietly confirmed two weeks ago that they can begin resuming cosmetic procedures.

How will the clinic environment change?

Waiting room culture will all but end for the time being. There will be no more chilling with a magazine and a coffee, patients will need to be prompt as it will be in a one in, one out process. As for PPE, clinicians and patients will be required to wear a mask and gloves, while sanitizer and hand washing will be required before during and after treatments.
