The changing face of injectables
The Medical Board of Australia has released Guidelines for registered medical practitioners who perform cosmetic medical and surgical procedures – October 1 2016. These changes allow us to make anti-wrinkle injectables and dermal fillers more affordable and convenient.
Previously, there was a grey area around video (Skype) consultations. However, new regulations state in clause 7.2 that ‘Medical practitioners must not prescribe schedule 4 (prescription only) cosmetic injectables unless they have had a consultation with the patient, either in person or by video.’
This allows us to introduce video consultations. I have worked with our Medical Director Dr Hooi to ensure the process is exceptionally rigorous.
“We will still have face?to?face consultations available in all our clinics, but everyday access to doctors enables me to lower the cost for you.”
