Latest updates:

Bioscor Melbourne’s clinic will be closed for the entire duration of lockdown 6.0 as of Friday, 6th Aug 2021. Due to the lockdown extension, the clinic is now scheduled to reopen after reaching 70% of 16+ fully-vaccinated (National Plan: Phase B indicative date: Tuesday, 26th Oct 2021)

If you had an appointment during the lockdown period, you would have been contacted or left a voice message or SMS to be notified. We apologize if we were not able to personally call you to cancel or reschedule due to the sudden lockdown. We ask for your understanding as it was not possible for us to get in touch with every single one of our patients given the circumstances.

COVID Vaccination & Cosmetic Injecting – What is safe?  [29th March 2021]

In February 2021, Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) advised it members about elective surgery and COVID vaccination. ASAPS’ advice was based on recommendations of best practice guidelines from the UK Royal Colleges of Surgeons and the Mayo Clinic, USA and recommended that:

  • An elective Cosmetic Surgery procedure is not a contraindication to routine COVID vaccination.
  • It is recommended that the date of surgery is separated from the date of vaccination by at least 1 week to avoid clinical confusion.

The ASCD Advice

  1. The risk profile with respect to timing procedures in patients undergoing Covid-19 vaccinations may vary between BTX (anti-wrinkle injections using Botulinum Toxin), Dermal Fillers, and Laser and Energy-Based Devices.
  2. The risk for BTX and Laser and Energy-Based Devices is low and there is not enough evidence to support a recommendation to change practice.
  3. We recommend that you exercise caution and defer treatment if symptoms develop after vaccination.
  4. Tissue Fillers, on the other hand, appear to have a small risk profile.
  5. For tissue filler injections, we would recommend an interval of at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after COVID vaccination.
  6. Previous treatment with fillers is not a contraindication to being vaccinated.

If you wish to attend our clinic:

We highly recommend that you arrive with a mask on as we are not able to keep a 1.5m distance at all times especially during treatment sessions.

You are required to fill in a COVID19 pre-screening questionnaire prior to your attendance. This is to maintain a safe environment for you, other patients and staff members.

PLEASE RESCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT IF YOU HAVE ANY FEVER OR COLD OR FLU-LIKE ILLNESS OR ARE UNWELL IN ANYWAY, even if mild or your illness is ‘barely there’ as you may be placing others at risk. If you attend and are evidently unwell, we have the right to refuse to see or treat you. Call us on (03)95447429 or (03)95442852.

When attending our clinic:

You are recommended to wear a face covering/mask while attending the clinic as we are not able to keep 1.5m apart at all times, unless you have a lawful exemption. If you do not have one and would like a mask, we can provide you with one.

Your temperature will be taken upon entry and you will be asked to QR check-in for contact tracing purposes.

You will be asked to submit a pre-screening questionnaire upon arrival and to confirm that you have not been to an exposure site in the last 14 days.

Our waiting room has a maximum capacity of 4 clients at any given time and you will be asked to sit in designated chairs that are adequately spaced apart. As we will be subject to density quotas, once we reach maximum occupancy, we may ask that you kindly wait in the car. We will then call you on your mobile phone when a seat/space becomes available.

We ask all patients to avoid bringing additional people who do not have any appointments with us to minimize the number of people in our clinic.

Note: we will not be serving food or beverages in the clinic. Magazines will be removed from the waiting room areas to minimize risks of COVID exposure.

While Bioscor continues to adhere to strict hygiene and disinfecting measures, we ask for your patience, understanding, and most of all your cooperation. Thank you for helping us keep our environment safe for yourself, other patients as well as our staff members.

We are committed to support you during this challenging times that we are all facing and we thank you in turn for your support as we work together to ensure our staff and clients continue to stay safe and healthy.

Kind regards,

The Bioscor team
