Repost: Beauty industry association warns members away from filler

The following article excerpt is reposted from

The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology has responded to the worrying increase of untrained “influencers” and reality TV personalities setting themselves up to perform injectable treatments. 

The beauty industry association, which also providers insurance to therapists and salons, is urging its members not to administer injectables unless medically trained, through a consumer-facing message. 

BABTAC wants to circulate an image for its members to pass on to clients; a picture of an injector’s emergency kit, in bid to stop consumers seeing anyone other than appropriately trained medical professionals for toxin and filler treatments. 

BABTAC is asking its members to make clients aware of the potential consequences of being injected by someone who doesn’t have quick access to a fully-stocked emergency kit bag that contains items including an EpiPen, adrenaline, hyaluronidase and chlorphenamine injection – items only available to medical professionals.
