Medical spas get the green light to reopen in Massachusetts

NEWTON, Mass. — As Massachusetts moves forward with its reopening plan, medical spas are now seeing patients, but with strict guidelines since they come into close contact with them.

Doctor Renee Moran is finally back at the office. She said business has been brisk since getting the okay to reopen Monday. “Whether it’s homeschooling with your kids or doing your work from home, they’re so focused on what they are seeing in their reflection so they are hyper aware of all these wrinkles lines or even all the things happening with wearing the face mask, so people are breaking out people are contacting us right and left just to come in,” Dr. Moran commented.

Dr. Moran, who is is an anesthesiologist and pain medicine physician, opened her own medical spa business in newton center last year. It’s called Dr. Renee Moran Medical Aesthetics. They perform botox, fillers, body contouring, hydrafacials and other skin-care treatments.

“We are medical professionals. We are highly-trained in wearing our protective equipment and also just being sterile and handling sterile procedures,” said Dr. Moran.

In addition to cleaning and sanitizing, the state has implemented new guidelines, which include services by appointment only, closed waiting areas and staggered staffing hours.

“We have everyone waiting in their vehicles so they text or call us when they arrive we let them in keep the door locked as soon as we let them in we have a station set up with masks hand sanitizer and a touchless thermometer so we’re taking their temperature,” Dr. Moran said.

Patients will also be screened for Covid-19 symptoms 24 hours prior to their appointment.
