Cosmetic doctor KNMG
As of July 1, 2019, the title “COSMETIC ARTS KNMG” will become a recognized profile specialty cosmetic medicine. With this, the government creates a clear recognition for the specialism and also a tool for patients to recognize doctors who are certified and competent in performing cosmetic procedures such as injectable treatments (botulinum toxin and fillers), thread lift, intensive laser treatments and peelings. . The title “cosmetic doctor KNMG” is a protected title deposited by the KNMG, which may only be used if the doctor is registered in the profile register. An overview of all KNMG certified cosmetic doctors can be found via the link below: https://nvcg.nl/gecertific-artsen/ .
The Dutch Association of Cosmetic Medicine (NVCG) is the government-recognized scientific association for cosmetic medicine and aims to improve the quality and information of medical cosmetic treatments. The NVCG is responsible for the training and certification of the cosmetic doctors KNMG and supervises new developments in the industry and doctors and patients can also contact the association in the event of any complications.
Due to the protected profile recognition, not every doctor can call himself a cosmetic doctor KNMG and it is immediately visible to everyone which doctors have the competence of a cosmetic doctor KNMG. Personally, I think this is a very nice development and I hope that the quality and safety of the cosmetic medicine profession can be better guaranteed.
