Dear AAMSSA Members & Colleagues in Aesthetic Medicine,
All elective, non-urgent and non-emergent services to cease during the lockdown period.
In the current unprecedented COVID-19 environment it is vitally important for AAMSSA members, and all Aesthetic Practitioners in South Africa, to act responsibly, ethically and wisely.
AAMSSA is a SAMA affiliated society and SAMA strongly recommends that all doctors provide only urgent or emergent care. Aesthetic Medicine is not an essential or emergency service.
The executive committee of AAMSSA unanimously agrees that all non-essential cosmetic, aesthetic and somatology procedures cease completely during the lock down period from midnight 26 March 2020 for 21 days.
