A wide variety of medical health professionals are expanding their scope of practice to include cosmetic injectables, both fillers and neurotoxins, and laser and light therapies. It is incumbent on each practitioner to equip themselves with the appropriate knowledge and understanding of the products they intend to utilise in their practices, as well as any licensing requirements for each state. Similarly, it is a requirement to gain an appreciation of the anatomy of the structures and regions they plan to treat.
A further element in this Scope of Practice is an understanding of the concepts of beauty and how these may vary in different ethnic backgrounds. These elements provide the basis of this teaching curriculum along with recognition of and avoidance and management of complications.
