New organisation the Facial Palsy Association (FPA) has been established to raise awareness of best practice when treating facial palsy.
The association, set up by aesthetic nurse prescriber Michelle McLean, is designed to offer support to those suffering with facial palsy, as well as assist practitioners worldwide through sharing information on safe and efficient treatment of the disorder with surgery, aesthetics and other therapies. According to FPA, the association will address a knowledge gap regarding facial balancing associated with facial palsy.
McLean commented, “After conversations with multiple facial palsy patients, it was clear there was a lack of knowledge sharing within the industry. I am so excited for the FPA to grow, support and spread awareness. My biggest enthusiasm comes from the prospect of linking up professionals within the industry to share vital knowledge in best practices and successful treatment, and explore new innovative treatment options. The FPA is a positive and exciting thing to be a part of.”
