Petition to make Dermal Fillers prescription only and relevant insurance mandatory has reached 1mil
The petition launched in April by the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioner (JCCP) to make Dermal Fillers prescription only and relevant insurance mandatory has surpassed 1,000 signatures. at 10,000 signatures the government will respond to the petition and at 100,000 the petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.
At the current moment dermal fillers can be purchased online by anyone with no training or insurance. Unregulated Aesthetic procedures i.e lip and cheek enhancements are rising exponentially by non healthcare practitioners and members of the public resulting in a significant increase in reported complication injuries.
The campaign was started by Dawn Knight, award winning campaigner for better safety, accountability and changes in law to protect the patients within the cosmetic and aesthetic sectors across the UK.
Simon Whitney, consultant plastic surgeon and chair of the Cosmetic Practice Standards Authority added his support for the campaign, "I strongly support the call to introduce legislation that would make fillers prescription only devices. Several years have passed since the Keogh review and patients continue to suffer harm from fillers. Patients are exposed to levels of risk that surprise them. Reviews of patient attitudes have exposed a gap between levels of legislation and protection expected by patients and the reality. Classification of fillers as a prescription only device would close this gap".
