Adam welcomes the collaboration between the UK’s nursing regulator and Save Face (a voluntary regulator of nurses working in medical aesthetics).
As we’ve mentioned before, we feel the medical aesthetics sector is currently under-regulated. People are performing medical aesthetics treatments with no relevant training; they have no real understanding of the drugs or medical devices they’re injecting and no understanding of how these things may affect a person adversely.
All drugs have side effects and all procedures carry some risk, but nurses like Adam have qualifications, knowledge and training to ensure the safety of his clients.
We are encountering more and more ‘rogue’ practitioners operating in the field and cannot stress enough to the public that they should never undergo a medical aesthetic treatment from someone without the proper medical training. At a minimum, the practitioner should be a registered nurse or doctor.
We’re very happy to see the closer working agreement between the UK nursing regulator (the NMC), and Save Face, a voluntary regulator for Adam’s industry. In the future, we hope for stronger regulation in the area so that the public can trust that when they look for a medical aesthetics treatment, they’ll receive high-quality care and not unintentionally risk their health.
Adam has been a registered nurse for over 15 years, working in critical, emergency, and primary care. He has a master’s degree in Advanced Clinical practice, is a Nurse Prescriber, and has worked as a Head of Nursing at a healthcare organisation.
Adam has been practising medical aesthetics for ten years, trained on Harley Street, and has treated hundreds of patients with botox and dermal filler injections. He regularly undergoes additional training to advance his skills, so his patients know they’re receiving safe care when they choose him as their medical aesthetics practitioner.
