We’re proud to operate as a registered member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine. Aesthetic medicine is classified by the BCAM as a medical discipline that should be undertaken exclusively by registered and reputable medical practitioners. Any procedure implemented with the intention of revising, enhancing, treating or changing the appearance of the skin or its associated structures is considered aesthetic medicine.

Cosmetic medical procedures should only be carried out by registered medical practitioners.” – The British College of Aesthetic Medicine

The aim of the BCAM is to empower practitioners across the United Kingdom with the information and resources needed to provide superior treatment for every patient. It is also the responsibility of the BCAM to help patients make sensible and informed decisions about the available treatments, along with the importance of locating an ethical and reputable aesthetic practitioner.

Aesthetic Medical Techniques and Procedures

As defined by the British College of Aesthetic Medicine, aesthetic medical techniques and procedures include the following among others:

The BCAM was established in 2001, by which time it was known as the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors. The purpose of the BCAM is to champion safe and ethical aesthetic treatments for the benefit of both members of the public and practitioners alike. The BCAM sets standards in an agreed and unified manner, ensuring all registered members perform to the same high level.

What Does BCAM Membership Mean?

To become a member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine is to provide every patient with complete assurance of responsible and ethical practices at all times. All members of the BCAM are required to attend regular scientific and educational meetings, as part of a network of more than 350 doctors across the UK. What’s more, every member of the BCAM must be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and have a formal licence to practice medicine.

The BCAM is a 100% non-profit organisation, overseen by a dedicated voluntary board of directors to help promote innovation and continuous improvements for the benefit of patients and practitioners.

Ultimately, becoming a member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine demonstrates the commitment of the practitioner to performing at the highest possible levels. From experienced practitioners to newcomers, the BCAM provides access to the highest-quality training and educational resources the sector has to offer.
