About Aesthetic Medical Practice

a) There is no internationally accepted definition for “aesthetic medical practice”. 

For the purpose of these guidelines it is defined as: 

An area of medical practice which embraces multidisciplinary modalities dedicated to create a harmonious physical and psychological balance through non-invasive, minimally invasive and invasive treatment modalities which are evidence-based. These modalities focus on the anatomy, physiology of the skin and its underlying structures, to modify the otherwise „normal‟ (non- pathological) appearance in order to satisfy the goals of the patient and are carried out by registered medical practitioners. 

(b) “registered medical practitioner” is defined as a medical practitioner who is registered and holds a valid practising certificate under the Medical Act 1971 [Act 50]
