A ban on advertising “dermal fillers” or “anti-wrinkle injections” has angered cosmetic doctors, who say the TGA did not provide any warning or guidance ahead of the crackdown.

The TGA quietly updated its prescription medicine advertising rules on 18 December, deleting old guidance that said the terms were acceptable because they were not advertising specific S4 drugs.
