Britain Welcomes Stricter Control for Botox Injection Training

Botox Injection Training

According to BBC news, our neighbor across the pond is embracing tighter control on who can perform Botox injections. Unlike the United States, anyone who isn’t a medical professional who also has an interest in skin care (beauticians, estheticians, etc.) can perform Botox injections on clients if they’ve received proper training. In the U.S., only medical professionals can perform cosmetic injectable treatments, and with good reason. Medical professionals have a background in injectables already, and Botox injection training strengthens their knowledge of injectables and teaches them how to perform quality treatments when it comes to cosmetic injectables, such as Botox and dermal fillers.

Botox Laws in Britain

The Royal College of Surgeons wants to implement stricter laws and regulations when it comes to Botox treatments. They say they would like those who have “medically recognised qualifications and training” to perform Botox injections as well as other cosmetic procedures. Medical professionals come from an intense background of the human anatomy and health care, so it only makes sense that they would be the ones to perform these types of treatments. Overall, clients would probably feel like their skin and health is in better, professional hands. The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons agrees with more regulation.

Botox Injection Training for Medical Professionals

National Laser Institute is the leader in the medical aesthetic industry and offers many Botox injection training courses for medical professionals. In fact, they are taking their expertise and training to London, England this year. Medical professionals have the option of choosing between 1-day Botox injection training courses, 2-day Botox and filler courses, or handfuls of comprehensive courses that also include cosmetic laser training, sclerotherapy, BHRT, skin rejuvenation therapy, and much more. These courses are taught by experts in the field and provide students with hands-on training on scheduled clients so medical professionals can practice and hone their new skillsets in order to bring it back to their clinics.
