Starting out in an unregulated industry when you come from a medical background can be daunting. I wanted to champion safer standards in aesthetics and what better way to do that than to join Save Face. I will share with you my experience on being a Save Face member and achieving Platinum status.

Learn more in this blog on what Save Face can do to elevate your credibility, provide access to regulated qualifications, and raise your safety standards to attract the patients you want.


Save Face is the UK's leading government-approved register for medical aesthetic treatments. It is home to hundreds of practitioners and clinics who have passed their rigorous 116-point assessment process ¹. I am currently in my 3rd year of membership. I found going through this assessment process allowed me to ensure I was safe rather than just assuming I was because of my medical background. External regulation is always better than self-assessment. I achieved platinum status this year due to compliance with their accreditation standards and publishing a full suite of information to my profile to inform the public about me and the services I offer. 
I will go over some of the main benefits I have found since joining Save Face.
