Non-surgical cosmetic proceduresWe published several reports aimed at improving and standardising the training available to practitioners who carry out hair restoration surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, such as botox, chemical peels and laser hair removal.
Commissioned by the Department of Health the reports set out qualification requirements for practitioners who perform these types of treatments – regardless of any previous training they might have had or their professional background.
These requirements are aimed at ensuring that people are properly trained in the use and application of any products that they use – thereby making sure that patients’ safety comes first.
This work follows an intensive engagement process with key figures from the cosmetics industry, regulators and professional bodies.
We have concluded our mandate for developing education and training standards for non surgical cosmetic interventions.
The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners has now assumed responsibility for designing and implementing a new voluntary Register to support the enactment of these standards.
