Non Surgical Skin Treatment By Qualified Doctors
In August 2010, a government backed register was launched for those who offer injectable cosmetic treatments, such as Botox. Those who meet the standards as set out for The Independent Healthcare Advisory Services register, will receive a quality assurance mark. The IHAS hope that their new register will discourage Botox parties and unqualified individuals from attempting these procedures. They are also keen that the treatments are only carried out in clean and safe clinical locations, such as our Belfast clinic. The IHAS require all who sign up to their register to complete a face to face consultation prior to any treatment, which will prevent drop in clinics.
The IHAS believe that Botox and other injectable treatments should only be carried out those with relevant medical training such as Doctors and registered Nurses. The IAHS is trying to eliminate unqualified Beauticians from the industry in an attempt to make the procedures safer. Due to the nature of the substance Botox, things can go wrong (in a very small number of cases) and in the event of a patient having an allergic reaction, the IAHS feel that beauticians are unqualified and unprepared to potentially have to save someones life.
Unqualified providers of Botox who dont inject it correctly can cause lumps on your skin, asymmetry and even permanent damage to your skin. Is it really worth the risk? Our Belfast Clinic guarantees a professional service, from a qualified Doctor and all clients have access to an aftercare consultation to ensure the highest possible standard of treatment.
Dr Donal Mckeown offers advice to anyone considering Botox, or any other injectable treatment and urges them to make sure the provider is safe before they receive any treatment. Ensure they are fully registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and The British Association of Cosmetic Doctors (BACD). Also ensure the clinic is fully registered with the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA).
If you are interested in Botox or other injectable treatments, why not visit our Belfast clinic, and have the assurance of a high quality service provided by a qualified doctor. All Laserase Medical Skincare treatments are followed by our free after care service.
