 Beauty Therapists Will Soon Need Additional Qualifications to Perform Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments

The widely available non-surgical cosmetic dermal treatments, which are considered safe by public, are actually associated with several risk factors some of them causing permanent damage. This is mainly due to unregulated practices of performing the procedure by beauty therapists who lack adequate training to carry out the procedure safely.

NHS medical director, Sir Bruce Keogh, reviewed the current practices and regulations in the cosmetic industry. The review was initiated following the breast implant scandal in UK in which thousands of women had received implants made by non-medical grade silicon and suffered serious medical complications.

Cheaper dermal fillers and laser treatment for wrinkle and hair removal treatment form major components of the cosmetic sector. Sir Bruce was worried on finding that these procedures are unregulated, putting the patients at an increased risk of side effects and permanent damage.

He also cautioned that most of the time the procedures are carried out people without proper training.

The director in his review will make numerous recommendations and guidelines to make patient safety a top priority. It will also suggest the training and additional qualifications required for the beauty therapists and doctors to qualify to carry out the procedures and handle any complications effectively.

The full report is expected to be released by the end of April.
