Patients looking to have the very latest injectable cosmetic treatments such as facial fillers might expect to find that such a medical procedure adheres to a series of regulations and standards. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily the case.
There is no need for a prescription for facial or dermal fillers and they can be administered by anybody even with no medical training. Not even a beauty NVQ is required to ensure a minimum level of skill and competency.
This situation is expected to change for the future; but for patients seeking treatment in the here and now, how can they be certain of accessing good practitioners or companies for their treatment?
