To ensure your doctor is committed to the safe and ethical practice of aesthetic medicine.
The unprecedented increase in the number of personnel with minimal or no medical training who perform medical procedures with little to no oversight by doctors has led to concern among many in the medical community for the welfare of unaware cosmetic patients. Responding to these concerns, a number of distinguished physicians have established “Doctors for the Practice of Safe & Ethical Aesthetic Medicine,” an organization dedicated to providing patients with safe, high quality, expert physician-directed aesthetic medical treatments.
Are you committed to educating the public, future physicians, and policymakers about the need for safeguards that protect our patients’ quality of life and physical well-being?
Stand with us to ensure patient safety. Take the DPSEAM pledge and proudly display our seal. Visit DPSEAM.org.
