The Times has carried out an undercover investigation into Botox practices in the UK and issued a warning for prospective clients.
Botox Prescriptions Need Face to Face Consultation
Reporters found that there are still doctors who prescribe Botox without seeing patients first. This is against GMC (General Medical Council) guidelines, which state that a doctor must see the patient before prescribing the anti-ageing solution.
The onus is on the prescribing doctor; so if a doctor prescribes Botox to be administered by a third party (e.g. a beautician), GMC guidelines require the doctor to meet the patient before writing a prescription. There is no requirement for beauticians to ensure that their clients see a doctor before they give the treatment.
A doctor has actually been struck off the GMC register after it was discovered he ‘remotely prescribed’ Botox to hundreds of nurses.
There have been various investigations into the cosmetic treatments market and a series of recommendations for tighter regulations. However, until there are stricter laws in place to protect consumers, patients are best to take care when choosing a provider.
