The Aesthetic Complications Expert Group will make recommendation on stock items that should be held in the event of a complication occurring. It is realised that not all practitioners will have easy access to certain drugs required in the management of complications and non-prescribing practitioners should work with a prescriber who is a full member of the ACE Group to ensure that help and medications may be available when needed.
Greater regulation in the aesthetic market is long overdue and it is hoped that producing nationally recognised guidelines in the management of complications will help raise standards within the industry and to ensure early diagnosis, appropriate management and so improve outcomes for patients who suffer complications.
