New Legislation

Facial Aesthetics Regulation

There was some fantastic news in the aesthetics industry yesterday, that a new law will soon come into effect in the UK requiring those that carry out Botox, Dermal Fillers and other aesthetic treatments to hold a licence to ensure safe practise.

Sadly, there are far too many people that have inadequate knowledge and training that offer these services to the general public, far too often resulting in the horror stories that we read about in the news.

The new facial aesthetics regulation will protect against rogue practitioners and ensure no one can administer these injectable treatments without a valid licence. This new scheme will see consistent standards brought in across the industry that all practitioners must meet, whilst also setting safety and hygiene standards within facial aesthetic premises.

This should greatly aid to combat ‘back street’ clinics that really should not be offering these services as they cannot deal adequately with any potential complications that may arise from their work – putting their patients at great risk.

This news is another step in the right direction, towards regulation of the facial aesthetics industry. It follows the Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Act which came into effect last October which finally put a stop to anyone advertising or administering dermal fillers or toxin to those under 18 years of age.

Dr Harry comments;

“Having worked in the facial aesthetics industry since 2002, I have always championed safe protocols. Running my own clinic since 2002 I know the importance of adequate clinical knowledge and training needed to be able to provide these services to the public. I have sat on medical boards and actively tried to introduce more regulations into this industry. This news signals a positive shift towards the regulations that are so needed within this industry to protect patients.

I started my training academy the Botulinum Toxin Club (BTC), in 2014 to train other medical professionals in safe and effective administering techniques, to ensure fantastic results for their patients in the most comfortable way possible. I also recently authored the Ultimate Complications Guide to help clinicians deal with any complications that could arise, so that no patients should have to deal with any unforeseen issues with any injectable treatment.

I personally feel a treatment that is clinical in nature, that is being administered beneath your skin and that can create medical complications, should only be performed by a qualified medical professional. Yes, a patient may spend less on their anti-wrinkle treatment at a salon but does the practitioner have adequate medical knowledge for the treatment and product they are administering? Are they getting the right – premium – product injected to achieve the results they want? And, should a complication arise, does the practitioner know how to deal with it quickly and accurately?

I urge anyone looking for facial aesthetic treatments to do their research and find a fully qualified medical clinician to perform their treatment. Don’t base your decision solely on price alone – there is often a reason for such low prices, which can have dangerous outcomes.”
