Health Education England (HEE) has published proposed voluntary standards ‘Qualification requirements for delivery of cosmetic procedures. Non-surgical cosmetic interventions and hair restoration surgery’ aimed at improving the training available to therapist practitioners who perform non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox, chemical peels and laser hair removal.

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.
More to come.
