Media Focus on Lack of Training for Botox and Fillers

botox newsThe importance of injectable products such as Botox® and dermal fillers being provided by properly trained medical professionals is back in the news again this week.

Industry body BAAPS  (the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) have previously spoken out about the desperate need for regulation of a sector in which there is no need for any formal qualifications prior to injecting botox or dermal fillers.

Although the law has changed to stipulate that Botox must be prescribed by a doctor who has seen a patient, this does not in most peoples’ opinion go far enough. The Botox can still be injected by a non-medical person and when it comes to dermal fillers there is no need for any form of review by a doctor or a prescription before treatment.

The Keogh report issued earlier this year laid down a series of recommendations which are likely to improve regulation in the sector, although these are yet to be introduced.
