If you’re based in Birmingham or the surrounding area and are interested in getting botulinum toxin injections (commonly known as “botox”), using Save Face is the only way to differentiate between safe, qualified practitioners and dangerous amateurs.
Did you know?
Despite recommendations made by the Keogh Review in April 2013, currently in the UK, non-surgical cosmetic procedures are almost entirely unregulated.
This means that although, when administered poorly, these treatments have the potential to have major and irreversible adverse effects on health and wellbeing, anyone, regardless of their knowledge, training, or previous experience, can set themselves up as an aesthetic practitioner. What’s more, they can do this perfectly legally.
This lack of regulations has significant implications for the general public. Every year, hundreds of people in the UK are harmed by dangerous amateurs masquerading as trained professionals.
Avoid Unsafe and Unethical Practitioners
When searching for a non-surgical cosmetic practitioner in Birmingham, the West Midlands, and beyond, most people’s first step would be an internet search. Whilst using one of the three big search engines will indeed bring up hundreds of results, differentiating between them is extremely difficult.
The results that are presented to you by search engines will range considerably – from credible medical professionals offering their services in safe environments, to dangerous, unethical practitioners offering time-sensitive, multibuy deals that they will administer in the ‘comfort’ of your own home.
Google, Bing and Yahoo use complex algorithms to come up with these results, and none of these have any bearing on their quality or experience. Save Face offer a much safer solution.
Save Face is the sign of safe non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Our aim is to remove the risk involved in selecting a non-surgical cosmetic practitioner, and consumer safety is our priority.
In the absence of a mandatory register set up by the government, Save Face have developed an independent and impartial accreditation scheme for aesthetic medical professionals and clinics in the UK.
Doctors, nurses and dentists can now apply to become Save Face Accredited, as a way of differentiating themselves from the unscrupulous and unsafe.
Details of Save Face Accredited Practitioners are then held on our centralised register, which can be searched by the consumer using our multi-faceted search engine.
The practitioners you will find below have all undergone on-site assessment against Save Face’s strict set of objective standards, which were developed by the Save Face Clinical Director in conjunction with an independent advisory board, to ensure their safety.
