Checklist for Cosmetic Procedures
The increasing popularity of cosmetic services as well as recent complaints to NSW Fair Trading about poor quality beauticians has prompted the creation of a NSW Fair Trading checklist.
Minister for Better Regulation Matt Kean said NSW Fair Trading received 287 complaints about beauty services in 2017 alone, with almost half relating to defective or unsatisfactory services.
“In 2016, there were more than 43,000 anti-wrinkle injections, 15,000 laser hair removal procedures, and 11,000 chemical peels performed across Australia,” Mr Kean said. “That same year, the Australian Consumer Survey reported 7 per cent of consumers had experienced a problem with a beauty service in the previous two years .”
