Dermal Fillers and Lip Enhancements – Did you know?
In the UK at the moment, non-invasive cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers and lip augmenting treatments are nearly completely unregulated.
This means that anyone, irrespective of the skills, experience and qualifications they hold, can administer these treatments to unsuspecting members of the general public without fear of legal recrimination.
In the wrong hands, procedures such as dermal fillers (which are often used to plump the lips and fill in fine lines) can have serious adverse effects on appearance health and wellbeing.
When administered poorly, dermal fillers have been linked to:
- Nodules and granulomas
- Open wounds and sores
- Allergic reaction
- Tissue death
The Law Surrounding Dermal Fillers
A recent Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Interventions, which was carried out by the NHS Medical Director in England, Sir Bruce Keogh, highlighted the fact that those undergoing a non-surgical cosmetic treatment have the same amount of consumer protection as someone who had bought a toothbrush or a ballpoint pen.
This same review recommended that the government introduce legislation to classify dermal fillers as a prescription-only medical device, and that those offering them should be centrally registered. The government has, however, declined to act upon this advice.
Save Face – The Sign of Safe Non-Surgical Treatments
Save Face believes that in the absence of a government-funded register of appropriately qualified non-surgical cosmetic practitioners, there should be a way for consumers to easily connect with safe doctors, nurses and dentists who have proven experience and qualifications, and who work in clean, appropriate clinics.
With this in mind, we developed an independent and impartial accreditation scheme that allows skilled, experienced practitioners to differentiate themselves from the unsafe and unethical.
