A new campaign launched today is encouraging people to make sure that they know they can trust the person giving them Botox...
After a change in the law only doctors or nurses can inject Botox and it must be prescribed for you. Daybreak has gone undercover and secretly filmed two people offering Botox who are not following the correct procedures.
Today, Dr Hilary Jones has joined forces with Baroness Trish Morris of Bolton, Chair of TreatmentsYouCanTrust.org.uk to launch a new safer injectables campaign.
Launching ahead of the peak period for cosmetic injectable treatments, traditionally the months leading up to Christmas and New Year, the campaign aims to advise consumers on the best and safest approach to Botox and dermal fillers whilst the review of cosmetic procedures, led by Sir Bruce Keogh, awaits conclusion.
With over 1,500,000 injectable treatments conducted this year, and set to rise further in 2013, patients are warned that there is an increasing risk from accepting treatment from providers with no medical background or appropriate level of training practising in unsafe and unhygienic environments.
