NOTE FOR NON-PRESCRIBERS
If you are a non-prescriber we strongly recommend that you find a prescriber to work with who can provide clinical oversight. This will mean you can practice safely with the prescription-only reversing agents that you require in order to manage the more serious complications that can occur from cosmetic injectables. Let us know if you require help with this.
