David Sines explores the JCCP's mandate for 2024

The JCCP was established in 2016 to set standards for non-surgical cosmetic practice, and to consider both the benefits and risks associated with non-surgical, anti-ageing treatments and hair restoration surgery.

In recent years both the JCCP and the CPSA have witnessed a growing number of harmful complications arising from such procedures, many of which have been the result of sub-standard practice, administered by inappropriately qualified and poorly trained practitioners. We are also seeing an exponential increase and gross misrepresentation of the benefits of treatment, not least on social media and other online platforms.

The recent explosion in cosmetic procedures has been fuelled by social media, the proliferation of high street beauty outlets and a dramatic increase in the range of cosmetic procedures, including those involving botulinum toxins, dermal fillers, chemical peels, vitamin injections or infusions, plasma replacement therapy, laser treatments and breast and buttock augmentation surgery using dermal fillers. All of these procedures carry the risk of serious harm if they are not administered by suitably trained and relevantly experienced professionals operating from clean and hygienic premises.
