Information for Models attending Facethetics Training
Facethetics Training operate from COVID-19 secure medical premises. Our Healthcare Professionals engage with standardized clinical protocols when providing training or treatment.
As you have chosen to be a model for Facethetics Training, we wish to let you know about the safety measures we are putting in place for you.
We will be following infection control and risk management protocols.
When necessary we will be carrying out a screening telephone call prior to treatment, to check your medical history and health. Along with this, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire on arrival at Facethetics Training, see below.
We would ask that you come alone and arrive on time and NOT early.
We would kindly ask that you arrive with your hair tied back and face cleansed.
You will be provided with PPE in respect of the treatment you are receiving.
We ask that where possible, you pay with bank transfer or credit/debit card.
If you prefer to pay cash, please provide the correct amount in an envelope.
All those coming into contact with you, will wear PPE, including staff.
Safe distancing will be in place according to our protocols. At times when we cannot keep to the 2m rule we are taking steps to manage transmission risk.
You must NOT attend to be a model if:
You are showing symptoms of the virus.
You are waiting for a COVID-19 test result.
You have travelled from an area of high infection.
You have had physical contact in the previous 14 days with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.
If you live with or are caring for someone who is under strict self-isolation instructions and received an NHS letter.
- Any clients returning from Spain from 26th July 2020 are now required to self-isolate for 14 days if this applies to you it is important that you phone us to re-book your appointment.
We would ask you kindly that when you arrive at Facethetics Training you follow these protocols:
Please wash your hands on entering the building:
Hand hygiene is essential to reduce the transmission of infection.
All visitors must decontaminate their hands by washing with antimicrobial soap and water for at least 20 seconds, taking care to systematically clean thoroughly especially under the fingernails and palmar creases.
Hand hygiene must be performed immediately before every episode of direct patient/model care and after any activity or contact that potentially results in hands becoming contaminated, including the removal of personal protective equipment (PPE), equipment decontamination and waste handling.
As you are aware, the treatments we are delivering to you cannot be delivered whilst adhering to the 2 metre distancing rule but we can still abide by this when we are not delivering a treatment. It is important that you follow the safe distancing rule when and where possible.
Disposable, single-use tissues should be used to cover the nose and mouth when sneezing, coughing or wiping and blowing the nose – used tissues should be disposed of promptly in the nearest waste bin which will be lined and foot operated.
Practical session and patient/model consent
In addition to treatment specific consent, we will ensure that you have complete and informed understanding of the potential impact that Covid-19 might have upon the treatment. This will allow you and your practitioner to reach a mutual agreement in ‘weighing up’ risks and benefits to achieve and inform valid consent.
It is important that you understand the rationale for the various measures that are being taken, both by the practitioner and you as the patient, to minimise risk. This relates to both peri and post-procedural care and will further enable the practitioner/patient to take a broader and more informed approach to future decision making in relation to your health and wellbeing.
There is increasing evidence that dermal fillers given in the presence of a recent viral infection (or where a virus is caught after treatment) can increase the risk of delayed hypersensitivity reactions. This will be reflected in medical history taking and will form part of your understanding and consent.
It is particularly important that you understand that the measures taken above cannot completely remove all risk in relation to Covid-19. As such, you will have been provided with sufficient time to consider this fact prior to consenting and receiving treatment.
We have posters and signage to give visual reminders to continually wash your hands as staff and visitors move around the workplace, touching doors, handrails etc.
As you leave
Please make sure you thoroughly wash your hands as you leave and return home, keeping those family members that remain at home safe, as safety to all is vital as we all try to return to some form of normality.
We will also be asking all visitors to Facethetics Training to complete and sign this questionnaire.
