If you live in Northern Ireland and are interested in getting botulinum toxin injections to reduce the appearance of your wrinkles, using Save Face is the only way to ensure you connect with a practitioner you can trust with your safety.
Did you know?
At the moment in the UK, non-surgical cosmetic procedures are almost entirely unregulated. This means that anyone, regardless of qualifications or experience, can set up as an “aesthetic practitioner” and administer these treatments without breaking the law.
The implications this has for the general public are significant – the lack of regulation surrounding non-surgical cosmetic procedures has led to thousands of people in the UK being harmed by dangerous amateurs. From burns caused by lasers used for hair removal to allergic reactions triggered by sub-standard products, the complications involved in undergoing treatment by an untrained individual can be extremely serious.
So how do you avoid falling victim to rogue practitioners?
Using the internet to search for “botox in Belfast” will bring up hundreds of results – but differentiating between them can be extremely confusing.
The practitioners you’ll be presented with will range considerably – from credible doctors offering their services in clinics and hospitals, to ‘cowboy’ practitioners offering treatments in the ‘comfort’ of your own home. This is because of the way that the three big search engines work – using complex algorithms to rank search results, without taking into consideration qualifications or safety.
At Save Face, our aim is to remove the risk involved in selecting a non-surgical cosmetic practitioner, with consumer safety as our ultimate concern.
Save Face is the sign of safe non-surgical cosmetic treatments. We provide an independent and impartial accreditation scheme for aesthetic medical professionals and clinics in the UK. These accredited practitioners are then listed on our centralised national register, so that those looking for procedures can select a safe, accredited professional with ease.
In order for doctors, nurses and dentists to become Save Face Accredited, they undergo strict on-site assessment against our comprehensive set of objective standards to ensure their safety. These standards were developed by the Save Face Clinical Director in conjunction with an independent advisory board containing a wide range of medical professionals and industry experts.
The practitioners that you will find on this page have all met Save Face’s stringent standards – and while no non-surgical cosmetic treatment will be completely risk free, you can rest assured that these practitioners will have taken every precaution to ensure that your procedure is as safe as possible.
