COVID-19 has changed how we interact in our daily lives. As we slowly adapt to the phases of opening up the State of Texas, we have implemented the following guidelines as our patients return to our clinics.
- Be on time, but stay in your vehicle
- Text once you have arrived to let us know you are here 817-705-0324
_ The nurse will text you when you can enter the building
- Wear your mask. MASKS MUST BE WORN IN ALL COMMON AREAS OF BUILDING
- Once inside, the nurse will get your temperature and review any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 (Temp. above 100.0 are not candidates)
- Medical Clearances and consents forms, as usual, plus a COVID-19 consent form will be gathered
- All services must be prepaid. To make arrangements, our office will contact you prior to your appointment. You can also purchase by clicking on our Prepay tab
- Expert Aesthetics has set aside 1 hour for each appointment regardless of service to ensure the proper history is collected
- Medical Clearances with the NP $30
- If you are feeling sick or have recently been exposed to COVID-19 please let us know as soon as possible so that we can cancel your appointment and stop the spread of the virus.

Texas Medical Board Covid-19 FAQs
Although we understand that life happens and we cannot predict when the unexpected happens, we encourage our patients to cancel or contact our office if you cannot make your appointment regardless if it is the last minute. Our nurses are extending the time we spend with each patient to 1 hour due to the new COVID-19 protocol. Nurses are also disinfecting the area and rooms for your safety.
$25 cancellation policy will be waived during this time. If you get an alert, please disregard the message. We are working to remove the alert as soon as possible.
No-Show patients are people who do not notify the office in any communication channel available to let the nurse know that they will not be keeping their appointment. During this difficult time, Expert Aesthetics, will not tolerate this behavior. If you "No Show" we will not reschedule you in our office at any time in the future.
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported –
ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.
These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus:
Fever- 100.0 or higher
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Repeated shaking with chills
New loss of taste or smell
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19).
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
Cloth face coverings should—
fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
be secured with ties or ear loops
include multiple layers of fabric
allow for breathing without restriction
be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Put distance between yourself and older people.
