TOWIE Lauren Goodger is the latest reality TV star to launch a career in cosmetic treatments.
Inspired by her own experiences having fillers herself, she has decided to embark on a career doing cosmetic injections. She went on a training course in Essex to learn how to inject dermal fillers and has shared her journey on Instagram. She told the Daily Mirror
“I have a good eye for this stuff and can’t wait make you all beautiful #mircoblading #filler #tan #makeup.”
Lauren is not the first reality TV star to go into carrying out cosmetic treatments as a career. Earlier this year Rykard Jenkins – Love Island 2017 alumnus – shared images of himself training to become an aesthetic practitioner administering fillers and also BOTOX® – a prescription only medicine.
Should Non-Medics Be Allowed To Inject Filler?
Aesthetic Clinicians (those with medical qualifications) have spoken out about their fears about the lack of regulation in the industry, but the law is yet to change and in the meantime, the industry remains unregulated.
In principle, there is nothing to stop any person carrying out filler injections or even BOTOX®, providing a prescription has been obtained for the client. It is legal to carry out cosmetic injections without any formal qualifications and there are no laws to control who carries out cosmetic treatments.
However, the short training courses for non-medics can not be compared to those designed for those qualified medical professionals who are building on previous knowledge and experience.
Having medical qualifications gives a greater understanding and is better preparation not only for learning new skills but also for managing the risk that things may go wrong.
