Last week Botox injections and dermal fillers were once again in the headlines.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons issued a warning to consumers about the health risks of buying into group discount online promotions for non-invasive cosmetic medicine procedures. Meanwhile NICE reported that some unscrupulous injectors were re-using the same needle on several different patients putting them at risk of blood borne diseases like HIV and hepatitis C.

At Consentz we believe promotions offering cut-price Botox and dermal fillers should be banned as they de-medicalise the treatments and downgrade the health risks.

  • Botox and dermal fillers should only be administered by a trained and qualified practitioner with a new and sterile needle every time.
  • The practitioner should have an innate understanding of the anatomy of the face and be able to provide sufficient aftercare and redress in the event of an adverse reaction.
  • The practitioner should always carry out a detailed consultation prior to treatment and obtain proper, healing informed consent from their patient.
