Stop beauty therapists injecting Botox and dermal fillers to protect the general public

This petition had 7,268 supporters

Please stop unregistered practitioners from injecting botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. Botox is a potent, prescription ONLY neuromuscular toxin which can cause unwanted side effects that need to be clinically managed. Dermal fillers can cause again a whole host of medical problems such as vessel occlusions and infections. Medical interventions are required when both of these treatments go wrong, requiring immediate access to prescription medication such as steroids and adrenaline. An unregulated practitioner has no medical training and does not have access to this and this leaves the patient in a vulnerable and dangerous situation - which could potentially cause irreparable damage leading to disfigurements or even worse - an anaphylaxis. Dermal fillers can cause permenant blindness and death in just minutes if injected incorrectly and with no access to prescription only enzymes required to break it down. Beauty therapists have no understanding of the facial anatomy nor drug pharmacology, this is a public plea for everyone to sign even if you don’t have cosmetic treatments yourself, one of your friends or relatives probably does. Ask yourself, would you want them to be in the hands of someone who has zero medical training but has completed a 6 hour day course and calls themselves an ‘advanced aesthetics practitioner’?
