Read that and I’m glad they’re requiring practitioners to be medically qualified before being admitted to the register.

Sadly it won’t have any legal bearing x

I keep wondering how so many people are looking like FREAKS with all these lips and faces looking so weird! Who are doing all these fillers? It can not just beauticians doing them, is it nurses/doctors too? I think there needs to be limits to how much people should have over who is providing the treatment. Am I wrong?

I agree it's shocking and as a beauty therapist some are giving us a bad name. It needs regulating and fast and I don't think any old dentist nurse or doctor who has had no previous experience with the beauty industry should be doing it either.

Hi Glou life
I agree, there needs to be some strict health and safety regulations on the amount of fillers given to anyone. Do you think beauty therapist should be able to do fillers or botox? I feel the training is a little extreme to become a nurse first and I do think with the right and correct training beauty therapists should be able to provide these treatments.

Yes I think we should but it should have it's own qualification that maybe follows the level 3 as we are already using needles anyway and because nursing is nothing to do with beauty therapy in my eyes its a torally different carreer path so we as an industry are getting a raw deal,it makes sence that our industry has the choice to follow on. My mum is a nurse and she thinks that really nurses doing it should also have a beauty therapy background as we trained just as long and specialise in facial areas and I don't think the public know what we are actually trained in . If I'm honest I think many are hopping on the band wagon for the money and it's very clear with what's going on witn nurses and doctors setting up clinics with no background in beauty whatsoever is concerning . Iv had BOTOX and the lady that does mine has a nursing and beauty therapy background and it shows in her work and clients and reputation. It's a tough one tbh very tough but something's got to be done as iv seen some right disasters lately. Ps I don't really like fillers full stop so id only offer BOTOX anyway.

oh I know its just becoming ridiculous with people looking completely different its very sad to see and yes, bad its just for the money and people are ruining themselves its getting out of hand. I agree they should have beauty training too it is a difficult one.

And if they don’t keep up with all these fillers what’s their skin going to end up looking like when they do age and have to keep having more and more fillers there’s going to be a lot of scary older ladies as a mature lady it is tempting when I see all these fabulous looking older ladies who have a lot of work to compete naturally without fillers is hard

I totally agree with you. It matters who has good aesthetic understanding and care for clients. Some Doctors can't say no to client and stop injecting before their face looks ridiculous.
