Changes for NSW Cosmetic Nurses in relation to Schedule 4 Medications

NSW Health has set additional requirements relating to the administration, storage and record-keeping of medicines commonly used for cosmetic purposes – such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. The amendments to the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Regulation 2008 came into effect from 1 September and are intended “to improve the safety of the use of cosmetic medicines in NSW”. The category “cosmetic medicines” includes botulinum toxins; calcium hydroxylapatite; collagen; deoxycholic acid; hyaluronic acid and its polymers; polyacrylamide; polycaprolactone; and polylactic acid. The new regulation: Prohibits a person other than an authorised practitioner or a nurse acting under the direction of a medical practitioner or nurse practitioner from administering cosmetic medicines (an ‘authorised practitioner’ includes a medical practitioner georgia rehab near me, nurse practitioner or dentist). Requires a medical practitioner or nurse practitioner to personally interview (including via audio-visual link) before authorising administration of the cosmetic medicines. If a nurse administers the cosmetic medicine, it requires records of the direction to be made and kept by the medical practitioner or another authorised practitioner. If a nurse administers the cosmetic medicine, it requires administration records to be made and kept by the nurse administering on the direction of a medical practitioner or nurse practitioner. Sets storage requirements on the occupier of the premises where cosmetic medicines are stored. Requires businesses that provide services using cosmetic medicines to keep records made by the medical practitioner or another authorised practitioner and by the nurse administering on the direction of a medical practitioner or nurse practitioner. Requires businesses that provide services using cosmetic medicines to have appropriate risk management policies and procedures in place what to do to protect the health and safety of patients; appropriate equipment for use in a patient medical emergency; and to ensure that nurses are adequately trained for patient medical emergencies. Requires businesses that provide services using cosmetic medicines to ensure that the regulations are complied with. A breach of the regulation will attract: A maximum penalty between $5,500-$22,000 and/or imprisonment for six months for an individual; and A maximum penalty between $27,500-$110,000 for a body corporate. These restrictions do not apply where the administration “is undertaken by an authorised practitioner or by an employee in a hospital acting on an authorised practitioner’s direction”.

The changes follow NSW Minister for Health Brad Hazzard requesting NSW Health “undertake a review to determine whether the regulation of cosmetic procedures was appropriate to ensure the safety of consumers”, and its subsequent delivery of the Report on the Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Procedures. As a result, in July this year, NSW enacted the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Amendment (Cosmetic Use) Regulation 2021 – under the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Act 1966 – to commence operation from 1 September 2021.

How Can I Make My Wrinkles Go Away?

Anti wrinkle uses

While a few facial lines can be endearing and add character to your face, many of us would rather avoid them if we can, and there are many techniques a Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurse can use to help keep you looking refreshed and rejuvenated. The most common facial aesthetic concerns and how wrinkle reduction treatments can help are detailed below. Crow’s Feet The most significant cause of Crow’s Feet is a loss of elasticity in the skin combined with early wrinkles caused by smiling and squinting. Over time, your skin’s elasticity decreases, and normal facial expressions result in heavier wrinkles around the eyes. A Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurse can inject wrinkle reduction medication in this area to smooth and soften the lines around the eyes. Forehead Lines (horizontal lines) Forehead wrinkles are caused by the action of the frontalis muscle on the forehead. This muscle contracts when we raise our eyebrows. The raising of the frontalis muscle pulls the skin of the forehead up and causes forehead wrinkles which appear as lines across our forehead. Forehead lines, also known as forehead wrinkles or ‘surprise lines,’ become more apparent as we age. Excessive lines on your forehead can give the face and skin an aged appearance. If you’re starting to see traces in your late 20s or early 30s, it is best to consider exploring preventative treatment options. The more you wait to address your forehead wrinkles, the more difficult it will be to achieve the best possible results. Frowning Lines (vertical lines) Frowning is a facial expression that conveys the negative expression of anger, even when one is not angry. Frowning is produced by two main muscles, the corrugator supercilii and the procerus muscles. First, the corrugator supercilii muscle runs along the length of the eyebrows and draws the brows together. It creases the skin between the brows to create one or two vertical lines that may become ingrained should frowning be frequent or intense enough. Secondly, the procerus muscle runs vertically between the brows and on contraction causes bunching of the skin and a horizontal line across the bridge of the nose, which again can become etched in if the use of the muscle is over-utilised. Wrinkle reduction injections can relax the muscles that cause frowning and help reduce the intensity and severity of this expression. Top of the nose (diagonal lines) Lines on each side of your nose are often referred to as ‘Bunny lines’. This is because they are the creases that appear when the nose wrinkles up, for example, when we sniff or smell something. The careful placement of anti-wrinkle injections at either side of the nose can reduce the appearance of these lines. These lines can be a natural part of growing older, and some people find them charming. However, others may feel that bunny lines age their face and are self-conscious about it. If you fall into the latter category, your Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurse can help you get rid of your bunny lines. Brow Lift In younger faces, the brow is well supported, and its position above the eye remains high. However, the effects of ageing can cause the brow to drop, giving the eyelid a ‘hooded’ appearance. This can create horizontal folds in the surrounding skin. Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurses are trained in techniques that sculpt and lift the eyebrows, putting them back in a youthful position. This procedure involves placing injections in a careful combination of areas on the upper face to open up the eye and lift droopy lids. Lines Around the Mouth (smokers lines) The fine lines around the mouth or ‘smokers lines’ become more apparent with age is another ageing concern. We use muscles in this area when we smile and for other facial expressions. Cosmetic Nurses can use these injections to help turn the corners of the mouth up and improve your smile. A combination of wrinkle reduction and dermal fillers to this area can smooth the wrinkles, creating a refined surface to the skin with minimal risk. Chin (to prevent dimpling) As we get older, the muscles in the chin, known as the mentalis muscles, become overactive meaning they flex more often than they should, creating a dimpled, puckered appearance. Wrinkle medications can relax these muscles, thereby smoothing and reducing the overall dimpled look of the chin.

Man-ly Cosmetic Treatments for Men

Treatments for men

Cosmetic injectable procedures for men are growing in popularity thanks to modern techniques and the rise in the number of men who take an active interest in their appearance.  Nowadays, there are options for men focused on creating natural, masculine looks, some with relatively little downtime. Here are some of the most popular procedures for men. Jawline definition A chiselled jawline is an ideal aesthetic for many men.  Adding definition to the jawline can help sharpen or widen the face for a more masculine look. It can also help fix asymmetry and tighten sagging skin along the neck and chin. Chin enhancement If you have a weak chin or under-projected chin, it can make your nose look too large and your lower face small compared to your upper face. Having dermal filler placed in your chin can help to balance your profile and give you an overall more masculine appearance. Chin filler can also be placed in the cleft chin (chin dimple or bum chin) to decrease its prominence. Wrinkle-reduction treatments Anti-wrinkle injections are highly effective at delaying or hiding the effects of aging on the face, so it’s no wonder that men are lining up for the procedure as well. The treatment and the results are similar in men and women. With more and more of us working for longer, the need to look younger to stay competitive is real. Anti-wrinkle treatments can be a useful source in a 15-minute appointment. In the hands of a Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurse, your results should be natural and undetectable. But, of course, you should still look like yourself, just more refreshed. Dermal Filler treatments Dermal fillers can keep you looking refreshed and still masculine by enhancing your natural facial contours and restoring any volume lost from ageing. Dermal fillers can also improve the appearance of tired eyes, dark circles or bags under your eyes. Improvements can also be seen in static wrinkles and wrinkles caused by sun damage, smoking, or genetics. Whatever a patient’s desired treatment goals, the Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurse will customise a treatment plan that works with you, on your journey and to your budget.
