It was recently announced on social media that reality star and model Katie Price is currently training to administer injectables, including botulinum toxin.
Price revealed her plans on her Instagram account that she was completing an aesthetics course and her aim was to eventually administer injectables to patients.
Sharon Bennett, chair of the British Association
of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN), said, “Katie Price undertaking a short course in
facial injectable implants, demonstrates the blatant lack of understanding and
concern for public safety our country is in. This is not a quick easy ‘beauty’
treatment to be learnt in a day or so, and those responsible for allowing
anyone to leap from no qualifications whatsoever to purportedly having the
clinical judgment and know how to carry out a medical cosmetic procedure in a
few days should be held to account. In the meantime, the public are left
exposed and vulnerable, and must think hard about who they see and whether any
unforeseen complications that happen to them can be managed swiftly by whoever
they choose to go to.”
