The very real risks of the unregulated beauty and aesthetics industry
Posted on 24th August 2021
Our specialist beauty treatment negligence solicitors discuss the dangers of the largely unregulated beauty industry, and what to do if you have suffered a negligent beauty treatment
When it comes to dermal filler gone wrong, and botched lip filler, our specialist beauty negligence personal injury solicitors know all too well what risks are involved, and the injuries that you can suffer from.
A recent investigation by a prominent news provider has exposed the realities of the training programmes in the filler and aesthetics industry, showing just how dangerous these treatments can be, and providing possible evidence for why the injury rate is so high.
Can anybody train in aesthetic injectables?
In order to train and become qualified in aesthetic injectables, such as botox and fillers, you need to have a medical background of some form. This means that you must be medically trained as a:
These rules are in place to ensure that those completing botox treatments and dermal filler treatments are medically trained in how to respond and how to act in a medical emergency situation.
However, while these rules are technically in place, there is little to no regulation in this subsection of the beauty industry, and an unknown amount of practitioners are currently injecting botox and dermal filler without the correct medical training.
In the previously mentioned investigation, reporters were offered places on half of the training courses that they applied to for botox and filler, despite being open and honest about having no medical background.
Many of these courses are advertised as ‘fast-track’ courses, and do not require students to sit any sort or test or have any medical knowledge before attending the course.
What are the risks associated with untrained people injecting filler and botox?
Here at MG Legal, our specialist beauty treatment negligence solicitors see the aftermath of botox and filler gone wrong on a regular basis. Whether people have been to see an unqualified practitioner for the treatment and suffered from an allergic reaction to the injectable, or have suffered from adverse side effects that they were not warned of before the treatment, there are a huge number of risks involved.
Some of these risks include:
Paralysis of the facial muscles
What to do if I have been injured due to negligence botox or dermal filler?
If you have suffered injuries of any kind due to the negligence of a beautician or beauty practitioner then there are a number of steps that you can take to strengthen any potential beauty negligence personal injury claim that you make.
For a full overview of these steps, outlined by our beauty negligence solicitors, see here.
The key point is to get in touch with a specialist solicitor as soon as your injuries allow, and begin building your claim for financial compensation.
How to find a good botox clinic or safe practitioner:
Our beauty negligence solicitors would always recommend for you to do your research before going to see any practitioner for botox, filler, or any other type of beauty treatment. With sub-par training courses being offered to people with no medical background, and often only consisting of one day of training, there are very real risks involved in visiting the wrong aesthetic practitioner.
One way to combat this, that our specialist beauty negligence solicitors would always recommend using before getting any beauty treatment, such as a botox, is to use: https://www.saveface.co.uk to check out whether a clinic or practitioner is government approved before attending them.
