What You Should Know

Aesthetic medicine is a medical discipline undertaken by registered health professionals. It comprises a range of minor surgical and non-surgical procedures, performed under local or topical anaesthesia.

Aesthetic medicine is used to revise, enhance, treat or change the appearance, colour, texture, structure or position of the skin (cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues) and/or associated structures using techniques which encompass both the medical and aesthetic considerations for the patient.

Aesthetic medical procedures should be carried out only by a registered healthcare professional to ensure safety. BCAM aims to provide you with sufficient information to enable you to make an informed decision about which treatment may be right for you and to make you aware of the importance of using a reputable and ethical aesthetic doctor or dentist.
