Young women want to plump lips. The Trend is unmistakable. Beauty clinics and beauty salons, their customers pouty mouths spraying, shot in the last few years like mushrooms from the ground. Her magic is called hyaluronic acid. Injected under the skin, you lips, cheeks and nose swell. Possible, the Trend was because of the expensive substance is offered for some years, on the Internet at dumping prices.
Now the Association of plastic surgeons and other doctors associations but Alarm: In a letter to the therapeutic products authority Swiss medic you require a rigorous spray ban for cosmetics inside. Hyaluronic acid to be administered in injection molding "only by Doctors", as stated in the Letter.
Because If the needle was placed in the wrong place, could have "devastating consequences, ranging from abscesses to blindness," says Mark Nussberger, cosmetic surgeon and President of the society for aesthetic surgery. In the cosmetic trade journal, he has published a chilling article, illustrated with images of a wrong set of beauty Squirting desolate, disfigured faces.
beauticians grey use zones in the act
Swiss medic has answered the letter of the Doctors immediately. The answer is the doctors , however, are not satisfied. The medicines authority refers to a published leaflet. Therein it is pointed out that already under current law, cosmetics are allowed to inject their customers actually not a hyaluronic acid.
The leaflet makes clear that the law grey zones open to interpret many of the beauticians seem to your favor. Thus, the rule allows a medical layman, the injection of hyaluronic acid, when it is demonstrated that the substance is at the latest after 30 days from the body. If there is hyaluronic acid preparations, which the human body breaks down so fast, is controversial.
"a rigorous spray ban for cosmetologists," as a plastic surgeon walnut Berger calls, will be the remedies authority's knowledge, however, nothing: The demand for an absolute ban on "necessitated an adjustment of the legal basis, for which Swissmedic, but to the Federal office of public health in charge". Also the BAG does not want to be active themselves.
The call now health politician and CVP national councillor Ruth Humbel on the Plan: The whole beauty craze you have to set boundaries. Beauticians should be prohibited by law or regulation, to inject hyaluronic acid. Because here the limits of social solidarity to be achieved. "If such treatments are something goes wrong, you pay the the public about the health insurance," says Humbel. It would be wrong if premiums would have to suffer the consequences of a payer error of medically insufficiently trained personnel.
beautician: The surgeon is just about the money
it is Controversial whether the beauty surgeon with your appeal to action a injection prohibition selflessly. According to Nussberger, the hyaluronic acid is to spray the prohibition, namely, even for registered nursing personnel shall apply. A look on the Websites of the local beauty Institute shows that many of the trained nursing women to work as beauticians. A spray is ban difficult to justify.
such A medically-trained beautician Regina Petrik from Stein am Rhein is. The nurse has worked for ten years in a hospital, where she led daily injections. A year ago, they made themselves: their specialty: wrinkle and Lip injections with hyaluronic acid. For this, they completed additional training.
you fight back against the threat of prohibition from practising a profession: "As a medically-trained Person I know, how it is administered properly injections." Therefore, you would find it incomprehensible if only Doctors hyaluronic acid are likely to inject. In addition, hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the body and, in contrast to Botox harmless. The nurse suspects that "beauty surgeons want to secure with the rigorous ban on its own business fields".
