We wanted to update you about Elan Medical Skin Clinic and the treatments we are able to perform under the current government guidelines.
We are a CQC registered medical clinic and as such during the Covid-19 pandemic and up to Saturday July 4, Sue Ibrahim, our clinical director and nurse consultant in dermatology, was seeing most of our regular dermatology patients via video link consultations and issuing their prescriptions remotely. For the time being, where we can still do this remotely, we will be because we need to be restricting footfall in clinic.
FREE dellvery on all DermaActive skin care products
For those of you looking to purchase your DermaActive skin care products we decided it would be much safer for you, patients coming into clinic and our staff if you were to buy them online. To make this easier, we have extended our FREE DELIVERY offer on all DermaActive purchases for the foreseeable future. This is something we will review again in September.
Now that the restrictions are starting to lift, we have taken the decision to open our doors a little more to allow those patients of ours who were receiving treatments of a non-urgent medical nature to continue their ongoing treatment programmes with us.
This would include minor surgery procedures, such as mole and cyst removal and those we consider are of a medical rather than cosmetic nature. If you have any concerns please contact us and we will assess this on an case-by-case basis based on your individual needs.
We are not a beauty salon, we don’t wax people, massage them or carry out facials. Virtually everything we do at Elan Medical Skin Clinic is based on a medical model, so on need, rather than want. For example, patients do not come into our clinic wanting a prescription, they visit because they have a particular concern and we will judge the risks and the benefits associated with offering a treatment or a prescription for medication.
One of the cosmetic treatments we do offer is ear piercing and as the rules have now changed and restrictions have been lifted we have started to book clients in for this service.
Our ear piercing clinics is now full for July and booking has started for the next session on August 8. Slots are filling up fast, so please contact us now to avoid disappointment. Please keep visiting our Facebook page for details of the next available days we will be offering this service.
We can’t wait to see you!
It is great to know we can now start seeing you all again now that the scientific advisors have said it is safe to do so. Rest assured that we have gone above and beyond the guidelines in our safety measures and protocols to keep you and our team as safe as possible. We look forward to seeing you again soon – we have missed you!
