BAPRAS collaborates to improve safety for non-surgical cosmetic intervention patients

15th April 2016


BAPRAS has joined together with four other healthcare groups to improve safety for patients undergoing non-surgical cosmetic interventions.

Along with the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses, the British Association of Dermatologists and the British College of Aesthetic Medicine, we have formed the Clinical Standards Authority for Non-Surgical Interventions (CSA) and the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) with support from the Department of Health.

The two groups will be working collaboratively to ensure patient safety in non-surgical interventions, including dermal fillers, Botox and cosmetic laser therapies, an area which is largely unregulated. We hope to work together to protect patients by improving and enforcing clinical standards and training, as well as maintaining a register of practitioners.
