Botox® And Fillers: North West Aesthetics Welcomes Children’s Botox® Bill
The recent passing of the Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill marks an important step in the safeguarding of minors against the inappropriate use of Botox® and fillers. As a practice, we hold ethical care at the forefront of our ethos and this bill helps to ensure the aesthetics industry operates in a safe and professional manner that holds client welfare at its heart.
What Is The Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill?
A Private Member’s Bill, the Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill stipulates that those under the age of 18 are prohibited from receiving invasive non-surgical cosmetic treatments, excepting in cases where there is an explicit medically determining justification. All aesthetics practitioners are legally required to comply with the new legislation.
Until the bill’s passing, there were no statutory provisions for minors being treated with Botox® and fillers, despite there being rules in place for other aesthetic-related procedures such as tattoo removal and sunbed use.
North West Aesthetics Fills In
At North West Aesthetics, we won’t perform any procedures unless we feel the treatment is necessary and beneficial to the client. Patient satisfaction is a big part of what we do and we care more about your jawline than our bottom line! Holding our clients’ wellbeing is key to our company philosophy and we hope that those values help cultivate long-lasting relationships with our valued customers who know they’re in safe hands.
Administering injectables to underage patients is usually an unsuitable practice. There is certainly unlikely to be any age-related symptoms to address and a child’s ability to consent to treatment is questionable. Social pressures are also rife at such an impressionable age. At North West Aesthetics, we wholeheartedly welcome the passing of the new bill that will help the industry put a halt to unscrupulous practitioners who have not previously been held accountable by law for treating children.
We want all our clients to feel like the best version of themselves, which is why we offer a whole host of tailored treatments to emphasise your radiant beauty.
