Dermal fillers are not currently regulated in New Zealand making it incredibly easy – and legal – for untrained beauticians or members of the public, to purchase cheap dermal filler kits online and carry out procedures, putting you and the public at risk.
Because these operators aren’t qualified and registered they are also unable to prescribe the medication needed to treat and dermal filler complications.
This means patients are ignored and left to seek help and solutions elsewhere, often when it’s too late, causing serious problems like blindness, stroke, and disfigurement.
The New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine (NZCM) has a razor-sharp eye on these unlicensed operators and is leading the charge on a petition and they need your help to make a change.
Let’s keep you safe! Please sign this petition to Health Minister, David Clarke, which calls for filler treatments to be limited to trained health professionals such as Doctors, Nurses, and Dentists only: http://chng.it/nZdhT2Yc7y
