Q

Why did you ask for prescription originally but now you are selling it without prescription?

A

It was unclear whether the MHRA were going to classify this chemical compound as a medicinal product, a medical device or a cosmetic. Given the fact that there is a product which is molecularly very similar to this (one product is the carboxylic acid & the other product is the ester), the acid is a prescription-only medicine, therefore, it would be reasonable to assume POM status for the other product until told otherwise-this was also the safest option.

08

Q

Why are you now asking for an Advanced Dermal Filler Training Certificate when this isn’t a Dermal filler?

A

Being an Advanced Practitioner confers a certain level of experience which means the practitioner is likely to have dealt with more difficult cases, have experience of different kinds of injection techniques and have experience of procedural complications. This experience, along with the Deso specific training means they are much more able to deal with any potential issues which arise from using this product. Patient safety is our primary concern here at Foxpharma and it is important to get the balance right.
