Botox beautician pleads guilty to five charges of fraud
This week has seen the ongoing story of beautician Jamie Winter, originally from Scarborough, who was arrested in May 2012 and charged with fraud by false representation, having treated several people and claimed to them that she was trained and qualified to inject botulinum toxin; which it transpires she purchased over the Internet. One women treated by her told police that she had suffered a reaction to the procedure which had left her with swollen eyes. The court considered various assault charges, but these were later dropped as at the time her clients were perfectly happy for her to administer the drug. Ms. Winter admitted to Hull Crown Court that she had mislead her customers over the extent of her training and pleaded guilty to five charges of fraud by false representation between July 2011 and August 2012. On leaving the court she is said to have told reporters that she has administered the drug on herself but is not seeking a future career in it. Jamie Winter will be sentenced on 11th November – extract taken from Consulting Room.com industry website.
Only Nurses and Doctors should inject Botox
The majority view within the aesthetics industry is that only medically qualified and registered staff such as Nurses & Doctors should be injecting BOTOX and other Dermal Fillers. However legislation is not clear in this are so we encourage all potential and existing patients to check the qualifications and training of their practitioner. The face is a complex area with many small muscles and nerve endings, it is important that any practitioner has an understanding of anatomy. Botox Beautician
