Government to Crack Down on Unregulated Cosmetic Procedures

As you know, Springpharm places a high value on ethics and only works with qualified healthcare practitioners.  Therefore, we welcome the news that the government will be introducing ‘a new licensing regime for non-surgical cosmetic procedures, such as Botox and fillers’[1].

According to the Department for Health and Social Care, the Amendment to Health and Care Bill aims to ensure ‘consistent standards and protect individuals from those without licences, including from the potentially harmful physical and mental impacts of poorly performed cosmetic procedures’.

Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid Javid acknowledged that ‘while most of those in the aesthetics industry follow good practice when it comes to patient safety, far too many people have been left emotionally and physically scarred after botched cosmetic procedures.’

At Springpharm we strongly agree that non-surgical cosmetic procedures should be safely administered by a reputable, qualified practitioner.

This new amendment seeks to make it ‘an offence for someone to perform these cosmetic procedures without a licence’.
