On 6 August 2021 Indulgence Skin, Laser & Beauty Clinic secured membership with JCCP (Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners).
The JCCP has been established as a vehicle to promote patient safety in the world of non-surgical aesthetics and hair restoration surgery. It achieves this by the provision of information/advice to the public and its ‘Practitioner Register’. Practitioners must meet stringent entry requirements, sign up to a strict Code of Practice and operate within a new set of standards and competences
Why was JCCP created?
Over the last 10 years there has been a significantly high rise in the number and type of non-surgical aesthetic procedures performed in the UK.
Many of these procedures come within the remit of ‘Regulators’ but many do not. Many non-medically and medically trained Practitioners are performing treatments that are considered to put patients at risk without the necessary supervision. There has also been a rise in complaints about treatments provided by medically trained Practitioners.
To regulate and provide a clear route of redress for the public an explicit set of competences was required for each procedure with accompanying clinical and practice-based standards. Many premises are not required to be inspected resulting in wide variations in quality and safety.
These omissions have led to Government led enquiries and the establishment of industry based working parties to address these issues.
From these processes have emerged the new Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) to oversee voluntary regulation and the Cosmetic Standards Practice Authority (CPSA) to set evidence-based practice standards.
What does this mean for our patients?
Our high standards and area of competence in aesthetics has been recognised by an independent body.
You can trust that patient safety and well being is the heart of everything we do.
We abide by a clear and ethical code of practice
