BOTCHED filler victims are being “ignored” by rogue practitioners in 80 per cent of cases after they complain, new research shows.
More people are turning to anti-wrinkle jabs and fillers amid an apparent “Zoom boom” as people want to look good on video calls, experts say.
But they warn bungled procedures are causing irreversible damage to customers’ physical appearance and mental health.
Save Face, the national register of non-surgical cosmetic treatment practitioners, received 1,617 complaints last year.
They found 82 per cent of complainants were ignored or “blocked” by their practitioner when they sought help for problems.
Some 81 per cent were not required to give appropriate consent prior to treatment and 76 per cent were not told which product was used.
