The Importance of Choosing Experienced Aesthetic Doctors for Cosmetic Procedures

Good Morning Britain video clip (below) recently discussed the potential dangers of choosing cheap fillers and injectibles from untrained individuals. The critical takeaway from this is that selecting a qualified and experienced aesthetic doctor is paramount to ensuring optimal results and your safety.

An experienced and qualified aesthetic doctor ensures you’re in safe hands. They have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, product selection, and technique. Failing to use a properly accredited professional opens up an array of potential health risks, which can range from injection issues like bruising and swelling to acute complications like infection, allergic reaction, or even blindness.

Unfortunately, unregulated procedures administered by untrained professionals have plagued the cosmetic industry. We explored this in our previous blog, discussing Essence Medical’s support for the comprehensive review by the Department of Health and Social Care into unregulated cosmetic procedures.

This review was a significant step in the right direction for consumer safety, aiming to regulate non-surgical cosmetic procedures, enforce quality and consistency in aesthetic treatments, and protect consumers from potential harm while preserving the integrity of the aesthetics industry.

Why This Matters


The potential for harm and sustained damage from untrained professionals administering procedures is enormous. By emphasising the need for regulated professionals, we aim to safeguard clients and ensure all treatments are carried out to the highest standard. The ongoing consultation seeks to drive the aesthetics industry towards an end goal where every provider is authorised and well-trained, and its consumers are confident in the quality, safety, and professionalism of the treatments they receive.

We encourage anyone considering cosmetic treatments to take the time to research and select a reputable practitioner who is trained, qualified, and experienced. We believe that regulated healthcare professionals should only conduct non-surgical cosmetic procedures. We also will continue advocating for heightened regulation in the aesthetics industry and look forward to the outcome of the ongoing consultation.

At Essence Medical, we remain committed to providing high-quality aesthetic treatments – your safety and satisfaction are our priority. Contact us today to consult with Dr Bong about your aesthetic goals – we promise to deliver results and peace of mind that you’re in expert hands.
