Protect and Serve- Keeping Safe When Undergoing Aesthetic Treatments
Updated: Mar 23
Our Protect and Serve campaign is all about keeping safe when
undergoing aesthetic treatments. There are always risks when it comes to
injectable treatments and if they are not performed correctly, this is where
these problems can arise
This campaign will inform you of all the key things to look out for when
choosing your practitioner or clinic, and why it is so important to do your
Selecting a safe practitioner is imperative when thinking about having any
aesthetic treatments. This is due to the world of filler being completely
unregulated, so anyone and everyone can get hold of these products and
administer treatments with little/no experience in the medical field.
Medical professionals have the understanding and knowledge that is
required when administering injectable treatments. Many people are
influenced by cheap prices, when the focus should be on whether or
not they are in safe hands, after all, we are talking about your face!
Here at Tinkable, we are Save Face accredited, this is a national register of
accredited medical professionals who provide non-surgical treatments
such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Being part of Save Face
means that all Tinkable clinics and practitioners have to follow strict
protocols and guidelines to be a member.
All Doctors, Nurses and Dentists are registered with a governing body and
are given a PIN, which can be checked to see if you are in safe
hands. Furthermore, they are given additional training in aesthetics to
undergo treatments. You can search the register using their unique pins
or the full name of your practitioner on the following websites; GMC for
doctors, NMC for nurses and GDC for dentists. If your practitioner shows up
from your search, then your practitioner is a medical professional and
understands facial anatomy! If they do not show up from your search then
they are not medically qualified and are not a Doctor, Nurse or Dentist.
When considering all the possible risks that could take place when having
aesthetic treatments, it is always important to know whether your
practitioner is aware of the necessary steps to take if something was to go
wrong. For example, If you have an allergic reaction to your filler, a medical
professional is trained to know what to do following this reaction. Another
factor to consider is if you need your filler to be dissolved, a non-medical
practitioner is unable to do this without a medical prescriber.
All of our practitioners are independent nurse prescribers with experiences
such as emergency care, is a member of the British Association of
Cosmetic Nurses and having a master's level as a nurse prescriber. The
years of experience from all of our practitioners in the medical field before
aesthetics gives them the knowledge and experience to handle any
complications. They have undergone extensive aesthetic training and
consistently update these practices, therefore, understanding the facial
anatomy to administer treatments with providing exceptional results
At Tinkable, we have close relationships with high-end aesthetic brand
representatives such as Teoxane and Allergan. This allows us to know
everything there is to know about the products we are using from the
manufacturers themselves. This can also be extremely useful, given that
there are any complications, as we can get support from our reps at
Tinkable have been in the industry for 17 years and has grown within the
world of aesthetics, with our practitioners constantly updating their skills
and knowledge during this time.
During a consultation at Tinkable, your practitioner will go through all of
the risks and talk you through any aftercare, so even when you leave the
clinic you feel as though you know the necessary precautions to take
following your treatment.
