The global injectable market is booming in recent years – Europe alone was recorded to be worth a staggering £12.4 billion last year. Alongside the rise of non-surgical treatments, there has also been a considerable increase in adverse reactions. Those of you that have had injectable treatment in the past, did you ever consider the qualifications or medical background of your practitioner prior to being treated?
When having any advanced treatment, especially injectable work, it is important to know if your practitioner will have the ability to deal with an adverse reaction if it were to occur or have the ability and resources to resolve the issue if you were not pleased with the final result.
Rajiv Grover (the President of British Association APS) said in 2013 ‘aesthetic treatments should only ever be provided by medical professionals’ as ‘dermal fillers have clear benefits but also risks – it is not just about who can wield a syringe but who will have the capabilities to deal with expectations.’ The bottom line is, is that when are choosing a practitioner right for you, ask yourself; will they be able to deal with medical complications if they occur, effectively and efficiently?

Park Street Clinic are among a great number of medical providers that are part of a strong network of professionals, on hand to provide advice and support to each other in the event of an adverse reaction. You will find that most medical practitioners are bound to some form of this unique support system which effectively heightens the level of customer care and overall satisfaction following a treatment. Aestheticians and non-medical treaters are rarely welcomed into these environments, which amplifies overall risk when dealing with medical complications/reactions. As a result of being a member to such a network, the treating professional is given something a one-day training course could never provide; 24/7 advice, constant up-to-date training and the opportunity for growth whilst assisting and providing advice to other treating practitioners. So, you must ask yourself, who or where does my future practitioner turn when complications arise?
