CPCA Welcomes TGA’s Advice for Advertising of Cosmetic Services by Health Professionals

The Cosmetic Physicians College of Australasia (CPCA) welcomes the Therapeutic Goods Administration’s (TGA’s) decision to publish directions for health professionals and beauty clinics regarding the advertising of cosmetic services using Schedule 4 (prescription-only) substances, such as botulinum toxin, and the fines that apply for breaching guidelines of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989.

The TGA’s advice serves as a timely reminder that it is an offence for a person to publish or broadcast an advertisement about such therapeutic goods, with the offence attracting a maximum penalty of $10,800 for an individual and $54,000 for a body corporate.
