The following video outlines the most important factors to consider, along with some useful FAQ’s.

In addition, the following video provides important insight into the journey and evolution of the proposed licensing framework.

The DHSC (Department of Health and Social Care) released its consultation document on the future of licensing for aesthetic treatments in England on Saturday 2nd September 2023. This consultation considers which treatments could be included in a license for practitioners. People and businesses are invited to share their views on how to make non-surgical cosmetic procedures safer as thousands complain of ‘botched’ procedures.

  • Government to seek views on how to make non-surgical cosmetic procedures safer for consumers
  • Calls for views from industry and people who have undergone these procedures will be used to shape regulations
  • Proposals considered include restrictions on who can perform certain high-risk procedures and age limits for those undergoing cosmetic procedures

The JCCP has also prepared a public guide to the Government consultation, with a clear explanation of what it means and how to respond to it. This can be found here. 

The JCCP's FAQ guide also covers the scope of the proposed license and answers questions related to practitioner-related issues, education and training, age restrictions and key stages of the consultation.
