APPG on Beauty, Aesthetics and Wellbeing: Inquiry into non-surgical cosmetic procedures
The APPG has recently launched an important inquiry into non-surgical cosmetic procedures to investigate how standards for undertaking and advertising treatments such as botulinum toxins or similar anti-wrinkle injectables, dermal fillers, polydioxanone (PDO) threads and cogs, should be improved to support the beauty and aesthetics industry and protect public safety.
The Group has opened a call for written evidence and is in the process of inviting witnesses to give oral evidence in its inquiry.
Terms of reference:
- Review the scope and scale of non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the UK.
- Procedures within scope of this inquiry are botulinum toxins or similar anti-wrinkle injectables, dermal fillers, polydioxanone (PDO) threads and PDO cogs.
- Assess the adequacy of the regulatory and legislative structures and training around non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the UK.
