Dr Christian on Save Face
Dr Christian Jessen, is a practicing Doctor who specialises in HIV & sexual health, but is best-known for presenting a number of extremely popular Channel 4 television programmes. From BAFTA award-winning ‘Embarrassing Bodies’ to documentary series ‘Supersize vs Superskinny’, each of the programs Dr Christian is involved in takes an unflinching look at sometimes uncomfortable issues, opening the eyes of the public and breaking down taboos in order to educate those who watch them.
Over the years, Dr Christian has built a reputation as a friendly, approachable doctor, and his frank and honest attitude towards health has helped thousands seek medical help for issues they might otherwise have not.
Save Face are passionate about eradicating unsafe practice from the non-surgical cosmetic industry by raising standards throughout the country. They believe that by having Dr Christian on as a brand ambassador, they will be able to increase consumer awareness of the dangers of selecting an unsafe, unqualified non-surgical cosmetic practitioner, and therefore reduce the number of people harmed by unsafe, unethical individuals.
The market on the whole, is full of safe, reputable and qualified practitioners who provide a consumer centric service, delivering excellent results and patient care. Up until now, finding one has quite simply been a lottery. Sadly, dotted in amongst all of the industry gems there are a mass of unscrupulous people masquerading as trained professionals that entice consumers through their doors with expensive websites and unethical advertising techniques. The truth is, without proper training, the results of any non-surgical cosmetic intervention can be disastrous.
For many years now, the aesthetics industry has needed some form of rigorous and reliable regulation to reassure, safeguard and improve service provision for patients.
I’m delighted that Save Face has taken the initiative to offer such regulation, and I am inspired by its thorough approach and conscientious desire to improve satisfaction and outcomes for both patients and practitioners alike.
I hope that checking for Save Face accreditation will become standard when patients are choosing a reliable aesthetic practitioner.
