Anvisa states that injectable aesthetic products must be regulated as medicines or health products, never as cosmetic products.

It is essential that beauty clinic professionals are aware of the distinct characteristics of these products and implement strict measures to ensure the safety of their clients.

According to Anvisa, aesthetic products intended for injectable procedures cannot be regulated as cosmetics. They are applied through injections or microneedling, for example:

Penetrating directly into the skin or deep layers of the body, increasing the potential for complications if the products are not used under the supervision of qualified professionals and in accordance with current health regulations.
