Anyone working in aesthetics or undertaking treatments that break the skin i.e. injectables or involve the injection of application of a product that could cause an allergic reaction, should undertake appropriate training in managing complications. Training should be taken regularly to ensure you stay up to date with current regulations and feel confident in dealing with any issues that should arise. 

Complications training is usually in addition to first aid and anaphylaxis training. 

Understanding the array of issues that could be presented from aesthetic procedures will allow you to confidently provide treatments to your clients. 

Invasive procedures always carry more risk than other treatments in a salon, and it is important that we are able to identify risk and know how to avoid it. 

Emergency Plan 

The emergency plan is the responsibility of the regulated independent prescriber. The emergency plan includes the appropriate onsite response, healthcare referral process and access to an emergency kit suitable to deal with adverse reactions or incidents. The regulated independent prescriber has a duty of care to their patients to follow regulatory guidelines set by their Professional, Statutory and Regulated Body. 

The client may contact you directly with any issues, and you must also raise any concerns to the prescriber to arrange a care plan for the client.
