Doctor warns of the dangers of using unqualified therapist for dermal fillers

fillers

Following a number of high profile cases, where patients have been left disfigured following dermal fillers, a leading specialist has called for tighter government control on unregulated clinics and therapists.

Dr Christine Cowpland, who runs the CMedical Aesthetic Clinic in Bristol, is pressing for the introduction legislation to safeguard men and women undertaking dermal filler injections. Unlike Botox, which needs a medical prescription to be purchased, dermal fillers are classed as 'medical devices', so in theory, anyone can buy and use them.

5 Crafty Wedding Favours You Can Make

Crafty Wedding

While your wedding day is a celebration of your love for one another, it’s become customary to shower your guests with a little affection too, in the form of a wedding favour. 

 

Originally introduced at high-society weddings in Europe as a way for the rich to provide their guests with a gift for attending their wedding, they were known as bonbonniere, a box covered in crystal, porcelain or gold, which was encrusted with precious stones.
