Aesthetics on TV {It’s in the news you know}

It seems aesthetics have been in the news more than usual recently

Aesthetics have featured on primetime ITV a few times recently as the national debate about injectables in the aesthetics industry hots up.

The Kyle Files, with Jeremy Kyle, was the most recent show to have a look at what’s going on.

The show focussed on the debate about whether non-medics should be allowed to offer injectable treatments like Botox and fillers.

And a couple of weeks before that, ITV news featured industry leaders calling for higher standards and better professionalism and fighting for the right of beauticians to be able to perform perfectly legal procedures like Botox and dermal fillers.

And This Morning has also featured the debate and looked at whether with proper training and in proper facilities many experienced non-medics are at least as equally proficient as medics in this field.

Now the Government seems to be moving with the formation of an All-Party Parliamentary Group to look at the industry and report back and the launch of a new awareness campaign aimed at advising customers how to choose a safe place to have treatments done.

As more and more public attention is drawn to the aesthetics industry and the provision of training, levels of proficiency and safety, those who offer best practice can only flourish more.
