Last week, there were reports about a spa in New Mexico that was reportedly shut down after 2 patients got infected by a virus after a procedure. This is a very serious situation and we wanted to take this opportunity to remind our patients of ways that they can protect themselves.
At our office, we do many treatments that involve needles and blood. They include vitamin injections, pushes, IVs, blood draws, and microneedling with PRP and hyaluronic acid. We take every precaution possible to maintain a sterile environment and to prevent any cross contamination to protect our patients when dealing with needles and bodily fluids.
However, we know that some of our patients receive treatments while on vacation or in other locations so we just wanted to offer some tips and reminders to make sure they are receiving the best care possible and keep themselves safe.
These are just a few ways that patients can take control of their health and prevent the spread of illnesses. If you do not feel comfortable or confident that the person administering the procedure has the best clean technique and is putting your health at risk, please do not get the procedure done and find another location.
