JCCP Update Ban On Remote Prescribing

JCCP Update: Ban On Remote Prescribing

In line with several Professional Statutory Regulators (the General Medical Council and the General Dental Council and in accordance with guidance set down by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society) the JCCP and the CPSA have set down their decision not to endorse or permit the remote prescribing of any prescription medicine when used for specifically for non-surgical cosmetic treatments. In such circumstances when a prescriber delegates treatment to other practitioners, then the JCCP would remind the prescriber that the patient remains under the oversight of the prescriber, requiring that the prescriber must be familiar with the patient through an initial face to face consultation and diagnostic assessment of the patient’s suitability for treatment. This applies to the routine/planned administration of medicines that are used specifically for cosmetic purposes, such as botulinum toxins, injected local anaesthetic or topical adrenaline, and the emergency use of medicines such as hyaluronidase.

Using Dermal Filler In The Jaw | VIDEO

Clinical Director of Cosmetic Courses and Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Mr Adrian Richards discusses the use of dermal filler in the jaw in this video. The number one area for dermal fillers as we've mentioned before is the cheeks. The number two would be the lips and number three jaw. If your patient is looking to define the jaw, we can use dermal filler injections in this area to make it more prominent. Dermal filler would draw her jaw backwards and give a her a defined jawline, whilst accentuating the angles of the face. When treating the face, it is important to look at the face as whole and adopt a holistic approach. This means that if you are treating the jaw, perhaps the cheeks would benefit from some additional volume to produce a proportioned face.
