Our Mission

Cosmetic medicine is a rapidly growing and expanding area and it may surprise the public to know that it is nearly entirely unregulated. Treatments should only be performed by medically qualified practitioners including doctors, dentists, nurses and prescribing pharmacists. However as there is no enforcement of these rules, it is not uncommon to find a therapist who has been on a course and claims to be qualified to perform potentially dangerous treatments including injecting prescription only medicines. But what happens if something goes wrong? They will not have the necessary skills or drugs required to manage the complication and as they are unregistered, they can continue practising without any repercussions.

View our mission statement

Appear on the “Find a Practitioner” search

The general public are becoming increasingly concerned about cosmetic disasters and more savvy in doing their research. Appear on our search facility to show that patient safety is your number one concern and you are competent at managing any complication that may arise.

Use of the ACE Group logo on your website and literature

The ACE Group guidelines are widely circulated and respected, when you register, you can display our logo to show to colleagues and patients that you are following the latest, evidence based guidelines.

Discount on attendance at ACE Group workshops

Ongoing education is essential and the ACE Group will be facilitating national workshops on the management of complications. As a registered practitioner, you will receive discounts on these courses.

Feedback from our patients and practitioners

The ACE guidelines are an essential tool in everyone's emergency kit when practising in aesthetic medicine. The ACE group are an expert set of practitioners with many years of experience in the field. They have certainly been an invaluable source of advice and help to me. They benefit us all to practice safely and effectively. A really excellent resource.

I have had lip fillers several times however on the last occasion, the next day the side of my lip became very painful, swollen and changed colour. I went straight back to my clinic and the nurse contacted Martyn and Sharon, we both went over to see them and they did an injection into my lip which dissolved the filler and it got better over the next few days. They were both very professional and calm and reassured me all the way. I have since had my lip filler done without any problems and they look great!
