Lack of regulation in non-surgical beauty treatments “dangerous”

Posted By Kirsty Dakin - 22nd July 2021

A recent government review has found that the lack of regulation in non-surgical treatments is dangerous and has made 17 recommendations to be implemented, including mandatory training for all practitioners and a national licensing system to ensure that premises meet hygiene requirements. The treatments, such as Botox-style injections and lip fillers, can have serious complications if they are not carried out properly and there is currently no method of redress for anyone who has been injured. We hope that safety is improved in this area soon.
