The report on the impact of body image on mental and physical health – by the health and social care committee was published last week.
We welcome the report as it addresses the lack of regulation in the non-surgical cosmetics.
At the moment you could pretty much get your cosmetic treatments (including fillers) done anywhere by anyone – back of a hairdressers, at home, in a cupboard. Scary thought.
Legally we hold high (and tightly regulated) standards. And here’s why.
This new government report calls for tighter regulation across the board – including making some services prescription only, making sure clinics that are not CQC registered have higher hygiene standards, training is better, and that advertising is not mis-represented. All good news.
A note on advertising – many people ask us for before and after shots. Whilst we have a few, it is not something we push out much – and this is deliberate choice for two reasons – 1, the discretion of our clients is one of our priorities. And 2, everyone is unique – so the results for one person will be different to the results on another.
One thing you can be reassured of though is that we will always, always, keep the health of your skin as the priority and within our cosmetic services we focus on replacing what’s lost to make you look great, and not done.
So, whether you have a medical or a cosmetic need – we’re here for you with the highest of safety standards. And if you’re looking at the safety of other clinics – seeing they are CQC registered is a good start.
