Dodgy Botox and dangerous fillers: The UK’s unregulated aesthetics industry

Description

Every year, thousands of people around the UK receive non-surgical cosmetic treatments – Botox and fillers - from people certified to give them. However, this booming industry is almost entirely unregulated. This means that some practitioner's qualifications come from courses that do not give them enough experience to safely practice aesthetic treatments.

A Sky News investigation has found that there are large amounts of substandard training in the industry putting patients at risk.

In this episode, host Sam Washington is joined by Victoria Elms, an investigative journalist on the Sky News forensics team, and Sarah Draa, who had severe side effects after being treated by a novice beautician.
