If you have symptoms related to COVID-19, it’s essential to call your health care provider, avoid public transportation, stay home and limit your contact with others, and practice good respiratory hygiene.
With the ability to work from home allowing more time for recovery and as Las Vegas and the state of Nevada continue to re-open, you may be wondering if now is the right time to schedule a body sculpting appointment.

What about body sculpting, aesthetics, and COVID-19?
At Las Vegas Body Sculpting and Aesthetic, your health is our top priority. Since care at body sculpting and aesthetic centers almost always requires close contact between provider and client, our team practices safety measures, for your health and the health of others.
You can rest easy knowing our practice follows all requirements from state and local authorities to ensure your wellness. In addition, we take extra precautions when necessary to safeguard your health.
Wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), like face masks and gloves, is important since the primary way COVID-19 spreads is through respiratory droplets. These droplets are released into the air when someone talks, coughs, or sneezes.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends practices use safety protocols during the pandemic that include screening for exposure and symptoms, providing hand sanitizer and facial coverings when needed, and using EPA-approved disinfectants for cleaning all surfaces.
What can I do to help minimize the risk of COVID-19?
Again, your health and the health of those in our community are our top priority. We’re asking our staff and patients to stay home if they show any symptoms that could be related to COVID-19. If you feel sick or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please reschedule.
The symptoms to watch out for include:
- Shortness of breath
You can do your part to reduce airborne droplets by wearing a mask and practicing good hand-cleaning hygiene before, during, and after your visit. Our goal is to keep you well so you can get the body sculpting services you desire in a safe environment.
