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.

Why You Should Relax About Getting Injectable Cosmetic Treatments

Why you should relax about anti-wrinkle injections

There are many misconceptions about injectable cosmetic treatments, and we’re here to put them to rest. Here are some common reasons you can relax about injectable cosmetic treatments. Everyone is using cosmetic injections. Even just a few short years ago, cosmetic injections seemed to have an air of taboo about them. Things have certainly changed, with most famous faces in the world now being open and transparent about what injectable cosmetic touch-ups they’ve had to keep their faces youthful, plump and vibrant. Countless Australian men and women in their twenties and thirties are now using anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers to keep their skin looking great. There’s no secret and no shame in cosmetic injectables, nor should there be!  The results aren’t forever. There’s been a recent movement in using cosmetic injections to enhance your existing aesthetics rather than choosing the surgical route, and this is a welcome change. Non-permanent, adjustable cosmetic enhancements have never been more affordable or accessible than they are now. As your treatment wears off very gradually, your skin will return to the way it was before, so all you’ll need to do is reschedule your next appointment. The added benefit is that if the effect of your initial injection wasn’t quite what you were after, this could be adjusted and perfected in your next treatment. It’s much easier to find a specialist in cosmetic injectables. Within Australia, most injectable cosmetic treatments must be applied by either a medical doctor or a nurse supervised by a medical doctor to maximise the safety and hygiene of the process. All Cosmetic Nurses at Juv’ae are registered nurses dedicated to the perfected art of cosmetic injections. Our teams visit salons throughout Australia. To book a consultation in your area, call 1300 255 913, and enjoy the meticulous service and peace of mind that a professional cosmetic specialist can provide.
