Due to insurance companies’ refusal to give coverage, pharmacists were unable to practise in the area of non-surgical cosmetic operations for a very long period. Pharmacy professionals are now covered by HEE rules, and we are happy to make our Botox and filler training courses available to pharmacists from all around the UK. Because dermal fillers aren’t considered medical equipment and don’t need a prescription, a pharmacist without the prescribing licence can nonetheless find these goods on their own.
However, because Botox is a prescription-only medication, you will need to find a trained prescriber to evaluate each patient’s needs and write the prescription if you are not a certified prescriber. We address this and can assist you with it, as well as the appropriate insurance, as part of our thorough training programmes for you.
