Effective December 13th, 2020 the Alberta government has ordered the closure of several business in an effort to slow down the growing cases of COVID-19 infection rates. Mistakenly, this has included Advanced Aesthetic Service Providers under "COSMETIC and PERSONAL" services.

Many Advanced Aesthetic Service Providers are also Regulated Health Professionals such as Physicians, Nurses and Dentists that have invested in additional training to be able to perform advanced aesthetic services.  Furthermore, many work within clinics that are owned and operated by provincially Regulated Health Professions such as Physicians, Nurses, and Dentists who are being allowed to continue to perform non-advanced aesthetic services during this time. These Regulated Health Professions have governing colleges that have effectively upheld and have safely abided by all COVID-19 safety measures including wearing PPE, sanitizing all spaces, safe distancing and minimizing scheduling to allow for minimal contact in waiting rooms. 

Regulated health professionals that provide advanced aesthetic services recognize that the community's health, safety and well being takes the utmost priority over delivering cosmetic and personal services.   We believe in practicing advanced aesthetic services safely, ethically and commit to continually educate ourselves in our practice.  

We also recognize that many patients seek the cosmetic and personal services provided by Advanced Aesthetic Service Providers to support the community's goals for self-care, improved well-being and mental health.

Presently, Advanced Aesthetic Service Providers do not have an Association or College in Alberta, but many do belong to Colleges and Associations that regulate the practices of all levels of care for patients. 

The newly formed ADVANCED AESTHETICS ASSOCIATION of ALBERTA commits to further regulate the SAFETY, ETHICS and EDUCATION of its members.  We request that members of the public support the following request:

We are asking that the Premier Jason Kenney, Minister of Health Tyler Shandro and the Chief Medical Officer Dr Deena Hinshaw reconsider the blanket restrictions placed upon Advanced Aesthetic Service Providers who already practice with or within these Regulated Health Professional clinics and allow for them to continue working and resume operations.
