The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Beauty, Aesthetics and Wellbeing has called for dermal fillers to be available on a prescription only basis, alongside a number of other recommendations, warning that the public is being put at risk of harm and that the current situation cannot continue.

Other recommendations include a mandatory face to face consultation with a medical professional, mandatory psychological screening of clients prior to treatment, as well as mandatory qualifications to perform invasive procedures, a licensing scheme, and restrictions on advertising.

The recommendations come on the back of a Sky News investigation uncovering substandard training in the aesthetics industry.
