What Is Save Face?
Save Face is a national register of Accredited practitioners who provide non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Our Register is accredited by Professional Standards Authority and is recognised by the Government, The Department of Health, NHS England and The Care Quality Commission.

Why is This Important?
In the right hands, the results of non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as Botox® and dermal fillers can be fantastic, restoring a more youthful appearance, delivering subtle and discreet enhancements that not only make us look better but can help to make us feel better too.
Up until now, finding a safe, reputable practitioner has quite simply been a lottery. Legally, non-surgical cosmetic procedures like Botox® and dermal fillers can be injected by ANYONE regardless of their training or experience.
The lack of regulation has resulted in a mass of unscrupulous people masquerading as trained professionals who entice you through their doors promising to deliver great results at incredibly low prices. The truth is, without proper training, the results of any non-surgical cosmetic intervention can be disastrous. Just take a look at a few of our recent investigations in to bad practice.
You Can Use Save Face to find a Safe Reputable Practitioner
Selecting a safe practitioner can be extremely challenging. In an industry that is inadequately regulated and unaccountable many people are only influenced by price – or they are pressured into having treatments with time-limited deals and discounts that can ultimately leave them feeling regretful and disappointed. When choosing to have a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, selecting the right practitioner is vital!
Searching the internet for information can be time-consuming, daunting and very confusing.
Thankfully, now, identifying a safe, medically qualified practitioner has never been easier. If you are considering a treatment, you needn’t worry or spend time scouring the internet trying to differentiate between the good, the bad and the indifferent, because Save Face has visited each and every one of our accredited practitioners to ensure that you will be in safe hands, that use safe products in safe environments.
