Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) Reminds Doctors of the Regulations Regarding the Advertising of ‘Cosmetic Injectables’

On 18 December 2023, the Therapeutic Goods Administration reminded all health practitioners that use of the previously popular terms ‘Anti Wrinkle Injections’ and ‘Dermal Fillers’ was not permitted in advertising.

TGA’s reasoning is that ‘Anti-Wrinkle Injections’ and ‘Dermal Fillers’ are classed as ‘prescription medicines’, and accordingly it is illegal to influence consumers about the use or supply of prescription medicines through advertising.

TGA added that even though the brand names of those products are not being advertised, the generic terms ‘Anti-Wrinkle Injections’ and ‘Dermal Fillers’ still “draw the audience’s mind” to prescription-only products.

Currently, all practitioners performing non-surgical cosmetic procedures are still awaiting TGA’s further guidelines as to what descriptions will be allowed after TGA indicated it would provide further guidelines by late January 2024.

Terms & Conditions


  • Consultations must be pre-paid at time of booking.
  • Once pre-paid, all consultations are non-refundable and non-transferable but can be moved to another date with at least 3 working days’ notice.
  • Cancellations with less than 3 working days’ notice and ‘no shows’ are not refundable or transferable and will incur a new consultation fee to re-book.
  • All payments by Credit Card & Debit Card attract a 0.3% surcharge and Amex a 1.5% surcharge.
  • The Medical Board of Australia’s new Regulations which came into effect on 1 July 2023 require that:
    • All patients seeking a consultation regarding cosmetic surgery must provide a referral and the referral must be from a GP or other specialist who does not perform cosmetic surgery or non-surgical cosmetic services themselves.
    • If a patient arrives without a referral, the Regulations recommend that the doctor should refrain from seeing the patient – in which event, any pre-paid consultation fee would be lost.
