Medical Terms

The use of and indications for the products patients will be treated will be explained by the training practitioner and patients will have the opportunity to have all questions answered to their satisfaction prior to treatment. It is the patient’s responsibility to seek further clarification from their training practitioner if questions about the procedure remain, this must be done prior to treatment.

Patients will be specifically informed of the following common injection related reactions: redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the treatment site. These reactions are generally described as mild to moderate and typically resolve spontaneously a few days after treatment. These reactions are normal and are to be expected. Again, patients must clarify any doubts with their training practitioner (Harley Academy mentor) prior to treatment.

For muscle relaxation injections with Botulinum toxin Type A: Patients will be advised by their practitioner of the expected outcomes and risks associated with this treatment based on the current product Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC). In particular, practitioner and patient have discussed realistic outcomes regarding the onset of action and the duration of effect, together with the potential side effects including those relating to the site of injection and the generalised common and uncommon side effects including headaches, muscle activity disorders (raised eyebrows), feeling of heaviness in the upper part of the face, accumulation of fluid in the eyelids (eyelid oedema), drooping eyelids (eyelid ptosis), inflammation of the eyelid, eye pain, blurred vision, fainting, noises in the ears (tinnitus), nausea, dizziness, muscle twitching, muscle cramps, localised muscle weakness in the face (drooping eyebrow), dry mouth, flu symptoms, influenza, bronchitis, inflammation of the nose and throat, infection and in rare cases, excessive muscle weakness and difficulties in swallowing.

The practitioner will also inform patients that depending on the product used, area treated, skin type and the injection technique, the effect of botulinum toxin treatment can last 2 – 6 months (approx. 3 months on average). In some cases the duration may be shorter or longer. Follow-up treatment will help to maintain the desired correction. Harley Academy Clinics accepts no responsibility for the effects of treatment lasting longer or shorter than the expected timeframes, and the patient is expected to treat follow up treatments as a new treatment, this means payment will need to be taken again.

Other types of reaction are rare, but approximately one in every 10,000 patients treated with a dermal filler has experienced localised allergic reactions after one or more injection treatments. These have usually consisted of swelling and firmness at the treatment site, sometimes affecting the surrounding tissues. Redness, tenderness and rarely acne-like formations have also been reported. These reactions have either started a few days after injection or after a delay of several weeks. They have been described as mild to moderate and self-limiting, with an average duration of two weeks. In rare instances such reactions or lump formations like granulomas have persisted for a number of months. Harley Academy Clinics training practitioners will ensure patients have been made aware of this before treatment begins, and it is the patients responsibly to raise any concerns with their practitioner before treatment commences.

Harley Academy Clinics will not be held liable for any side effects caused as a result of safe and proper treatment if prior explanation to the patients about the associated risks has been given.

On very rare occasions (less than one in 15,000) prolonged firmness, abscess formation or greyish discoloration at the implant site has occurred. These reactions can develop weeks to months following the injections and may persist for several months but normally resolve with time. Even more rarely, the formation of a scab and sloughing (shedding) of tissue at the treatment site has been noted, which could result in a shallow scar. A report published in 2012 discussed 32 reported incidents of blindness following dermal filler treatment in areas including the glabellar frown lines, under eye area, and temple1. In a separate study published in 2013, of the 6 visual disturbance cases reported, 3 were following glabellar frown line treatment with dermal filler2. Should any of these side effects occur after treatment, Harley Academy Clinics cannot be held responsible.

The practitioner has also informed me that depending on the product used, area treated, skin type and the injection technique, the effect of dermal filler treatment can last 6 – 12 months. (Lip enhancement will last approx. 3 months.) In some cases the duration may be shorter or longer. Follow-up treatment will help to maintain the desired correction. All follow up treatments are treated as a new, separate procedure and will therefore incur further costs in line with those outlined on the Harley Academy Clinics website.

In the event of an adverse reaction patients will be advised by their practitioner to seek further help/consultation immediately. Harley Academy Clinics will not be held liable for adverse reactions to treatments.

Patients should be aware that the treatment performed and their personal details, any images taken, and clinical notes will be used as part of the trainee’s (student’s) confidential portfolio. Practitioners will advise patients on the amount of product required and the cost of the treatment, which patients agree to pay in full prior to the treatment via the Harley Academy Clinics website.

Suitability for Treatment

As with any medical procedure, a full medical history and facial assessment is required before treatment. As a government regulated medical training provider, Harley Academy Clinics strictly adhere to guidance published by the General Medical Council and ensure that all students are fully educated in this. If our Harley Academy Clinics training practitioners fee that on the day of treatment the patient is not suitable or would not benefit from the treatment being delivered, the treatment will not go ahead and your payment will be refunded. Despite the discounted price of all treatments for the purpose of educating students, we strongly encourage all patients to consider all treatments prior to undergoing them and not rush into any decisions. Patients are encouraged to ask as many questions as they need both prior to, and on the treatment day.

We will require accurate information from models to enable use of the correct product to be ordered and will not be held responsible for any omission or incorrect information given.

Pricing of Treatments

Treatments are offered to patients at cost price. Harley Academy Clinics do not charge high street prices for botulinum toxin and filler treatments as procedures are delivered as part of clinical training sessions.

Cancellation Policy

Harley Academy Clinics reserves the right to cancel any treatment with any given notice period. Should a patient fail to attend a treatment sessions without sufficient given notice, full payment will be retained by Harley Academy Clinics.

Payment and Refund Policy

The recipient of an invoice assumes full responsibility for all services and products purchased from Harley Academy Clinics. The payee agrees to notify Harley Academy Clinics within 10 days, in writing of receipt of an invoice of any billing issues. Failure not to notify Harley Training Clinics signifies total acceptance and responsibility for prompt payment in full of account.

All cancellations must be made at least 72 hours before the start of the appointment by email (charlie@harleyacademy.com). Any cancellations made with less than 72 hours notice before the start of the appointment are subject to full payment.
