SPCP Best Practices Committee Position on Permanent Cosmetics and COVID-19 Vaccines 1/16/2021
Based on available information regarding COVID-19 vaccinations, the Best Practices Committee’s medical experts follow the current guidance used in their associated medical practices. Permanent cosmetic professionals should refrain from conducting procedures two-weeks before or after a COVID-19 vaccination if choosing to follow this guidance. There may be delayed reactions to the vaccines, and it may be difficult to discern an untoward response to products used during the permanent cosmetic procedure. There is also a consideration to separate any inflammatory responses either may cause.
