Even some trainers offering toxin injection courses may have no experience or might never have picked up a needle, yet can legally train others how to do it! It's the stuff of nightmares. However, with a few facts about toxins, treatment, safety and standards and why they are (or should [...]

2017-03-04T21:06:48+00:00By |Categories: Rejuvenation|

There are a rapidly growing number of dermal filler injectors with little knowledge and experience, and who aren’t Doctors, Nurses or Dentists. So it's no surprise that we are seeing a sharp rise in the number of people coming to us for dermal filler correction, after treatment performed elsewhere by non-medically trained individuals.

It's bewildering, and often unhelpful, so this week I thought I'd just highlight the 5 key tried, tested (and I don't mean on 20 something guinea pigs but on 1000's) and proven ingredients that are a must have in any good anti-ageing routine.

Having just returned from the FACE conference I wanted to share a growing concern in our industry - the sale and use of fake toxins and fillers and the untrained and non-medical injectors using them. The problem isn't new but the results we are seeing from botched procedures and fake products are growing in number. Why anyone would want a cosmetic procedure done on the cheap is baffling, considering all the horrible things that could go wrong. There is the possibility of complications with a genuine trained and experienced medical [...]
