Skin treatments – Who would you let loose on your skin?
‘Injections used to plump up the skin including Botox and dermal fillers and other skin treatments are a cosmetic crisis waiting to happen’. So reports an independent review instigated by the Department of Health in England about skin treatments.
The review raises concerns that such beauty skin treatments are now being made freely available with no regulation in place to ensure that those delivering the skin treatments have the necessary skills and qualifications to do so. The review places particular concern on non-surgical procedures such as fillers , Botox and laser hair removal.
The independent review clearly stated that skin treatments procedures unless undertaken by a professionally qualified medic. It can and do go horribly wrong and strongly criticised the way that many such treatments were being done at hairdresser’s appointments and “beauty parties” where injections were being given without proper medical supervision.
