Government Consultation and Dr Fiona Durban's comments on Guardian article

Government consultation – Licensing of non-surgical cosmetic procedures

The Government released an open consultation on the licensing scheme of non-surgical cosmetic procedures in England on the 2nd of September 2023. We welcomed the government consultation as we believe in creating a safer future within aesthetics by providing delegates with high-quality training from our vastly experienced and skilled trainers.

The Government consultation is due to close on the 28th of October 2023 so if you haven’t submitted your views on what procedures should be in the scope of the licensing scheme for non-surgical cosmetic procedures in England then now is the time to do so.

Dr Fiona Durban’s comments on the Guardian article

Our Clinical Lead & Aesthetic Doctor, Dr Fiona Durban comments on a recent article in the Guardian “More and more people are having ‘tweakments’. But what do we really know about the long-term effects?” and how this affects aesthetic practitioners offering aesthetic treatments to their patients. You can view the video on YouTube by clicking here.

Safety is a key area for us as practitioners. The patients should always come first. It is our duty as aesthetic practitioners to make sure we are highly competent in the treatments we are offering. This means that our training should be up to date and should cover every treatment we offer.

Due to limited regulation within the industry, there is no standard when it comes to training. It can be hard to find the right training provider for you as there are so many. As a leading training provider and winner of the “Best Training Provider of the Year” at the Aesthetic Awards in 2023, here are the essential points your training provider should provide:

Accredited Trainers with a Medical Background

Live Models

Clinical Environment

Support After Training

We cover these points in more detail and why they are important for your development within aesthetics in a previously written article. You can click here to read this article.
