Medics threaten to boycott new cosmetic filler register…

by | Aug 21, 2018

British Beauty Council reads that lack of statutory regulation for cosmetic filling procedures is creating issues for a new register designed to make this kind of surgery safer. When two beauticians tried to register with The Joint Council For Cosmetic Practitioners, a voluntary register which opened in April, nurses and doctors already listed threatened a boycott because it was felt that the therapists could not prove adequate training for injecting fillers. While there is no statutory regulation or training in place in the UK to deliver a benchmark of ability for this, the Council can’t enforce their standards for safety. The Department of Health and Social Care say they are currently exploring ways to ‘strengthen’ regulations.
