While the Government is making waves to help protect patients from potential harm, I urge anyone considering a cosmetic procedure to take the time to think about the impact on both their physical and mental health and ensure they are using a reputable, safe, and qualified practitioner. Do your research and read the reviews. Don’t live to regret it.
There are a growing number of sources that provides education and critical information for consumers who are contemplating a procedure to allow them to make informed decisions and evaluate credible practitioners.
Beauty Uncovered Live is a brand-new exhibition running from the 7th and 8th May 2022, at the Business Design Centre in Islington. The show has been designed to put a wealth of expertise under one roof. Over the 2 days, visitors can watch live procedures, and talk to field experts and brands from within the industry.
Beauty Uncovered surveyed 2000 Brits, to find out what is the biggest barrier to having aesthetic treatment. Findings showed that 25 percent of people are worried about looking fake or being unhappy with the result.
Interestingly, looking fake or being unhappy with the result was a barrier of more concern to the cost of treatment or even the fear of side effects/complications, judgement from other people and pain during/after treatment.
