The new Health and Care Act 2022 gives the Government powers to introduce a licensing scheme for practitioners who operate in England. Work is now underway to decide what the licensing scheme will look like, the first stage of this is a national consultation, which was opened on the 2 September 2023. 

The reason for the legislation is to reduce the risk of harm associated with ineffectively performed non-surgical cosmetic procedures, also known as aesthetic procedures, to the public. Once in force, this legislation will make it an offence to perform particular procedures without a license.
