PDO Threads and Cogs Let's do it
June 20, 2022

Non medics at an advantage

Non-medics practicing in aesthetics are now at a distinct advantage when it comes to PDO Threads and Cogs.

That’s because if you are a medic and want to offer PDO Threads and COGS you need to be CQC registered – that’s registered with the Care Quality Commission – the independent regulator of health and social care in England.

To operate as a doctor’s, dentist or any other medical or care facility you have to be approved by the CQC.

And those medics all need to be registered with CQC if they want to offer PDO Threads and COGS because the CQC considers them to be surgical procedures. As the CQC says: “The thread lift procedure is carried out for cosmetic purposes and involves an instrument and/or equipment being inserted into a person’s body (face or neck). As such, it is considered a surgical procedure.”

But as non-medics are not regulated by the CQC, or anybody else for that matter, then as long as you can obtain insurance you can offer PDO Thread and COGs treatments.

Finch Group insurance works with ACPB to verify your standards and qualifications in order for you – as an ACPB member – to offer these popular treatments.
