Cosmetic Doctor, Dr Mervyn Patterson has released a very useful infographic to explain the issues and dangers of seeking dermal filler treatments via un-medically qualified Beauty Therapists as compared to medically trained Doctors and Nurses.

In it he explains the different levels of training and competence between Doctors/Nurses and Beauty Therapists and their corresponding abilities, or not, to deal with complications and adverse events. Plus the regulation of the specialities.
