Cheap Botox® Glasgow

The cost of Botox®

Botox® is an increasingly popular non-surgical intervention for a variety of both medical and aesthetic conditions. With the possibility of Botox® being used to treat migraines, as well as its current use for control of excessive sweating and facial wrinkles, it is no surprise that it is becoming popular.

Cheap Botox Glasgow

But, can you measure the quality of a Botox® treatment by the price? With some clinics and companies offering Botox® at extortionate prices whilst other opt for cheap Botox® treatments, how does the discerning Glasgow client know which clinics are reputable and which are not?

Not just based on price

Clearly, the selection of the right Glasgow Botox® clinic for you is not a decision that should be solely based on price - high prices do not always equate with high quality as the treatment should be more than just about 'inject and then leave'.

Clearly there should be a thorough process that every clinic should follow, including your suitability for the treatment, the after care and support, as well as future treatments the clinic will offer.

What is a fair price for Botox®?

Unfortunately, this will vary from clinic to clinic and can make comparison difficult. Some clinics charge per area such as treatment of frown lines or crows feet and others charge per vial of toxin so it is wise to check what is included in the price.

Check carefully what is on offer and for how much.

What factors affect price?

There are numerous factors that can affect the price of Botox®, making it an affordable, if not cheap, non-surgical intervention for Glasgow clients.

  • The number of areas being treated will affect price. It is usually more cost effective to have several areas treated than just one.   
  • Some clinics charge per vial.  Each patient effectively purchases a vial.  This can work out more expensive if only one area is to be treated or you may feel you have to get more areas treated than you wish to get value for money.  Do not be swayed into having other areas treated that you do not want treated!
  • Ask what happens at the review appointment if more toxin is required, some clinics charge extra for a 'top up' 
  • Brand of toxin can affect price 
  • Skills of the injector - a newly trained injector may offer cheap toxin treatments until they gain confidence and experience
  • If it seems too cheap I would question why. 
  • Clinic location is also important as you may find some of the exclusive centres in London may charge considerably more than other clinics across the UK. This is more to do with business decisions such as overheads, rather than due to a differing quality of Botox® treatments between clinics.

Deciding on Botox® treatments for your problem areas is a decision that should not be rushed and so rather than basing your decision on 'which clinic?' based on price, also check the quality of service and treatment on offer - what are other customers and clients saying about the clinic?

Allure Aesthetics is a clinic in Glasgow with a modern consulting room and high qualified staff; their Botox® packages are competitively priced but with a high end customer service, why go anywhere else?

What is Botox®?

What is Botox®?

The word Botox is often used to describe an anti-wrinkle treatment but Botox® is actually a drug made from botulinum toxin A which is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.  In large doses the neurotoxin protein causes botulism, a rare paralytic illness often linked to food poisoning.  However the protein has been used very successfully for over 10 years in cosmetic medicine to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines).

Different Brand Names

Botulinum toxin A is sold commercially under different brand names including Botox, Vistabel, Azzalure, Dysport, Boucouture and Xeomin.

Can Botulinum Toxin A be used for other Indications?

Yes it can and has been used for over 20 years to treat other medical conditions.  It is also used to treat the following conditions - 

Hyperhidrosis - excessive underarm sweating ; Blepharospasm - uncontrolled blinking ; Strabismus - misaligned eyes ; Cervical dystonia - a neurological condition which causes severe neck and shoulder muscle contractions ; an overactive bladder; migraine headaches and even some cases of people suffering from depression.

How does it Work?

The protein is administered into the muscles by a series of small injections and works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles so they can no longer contract therefore relaxing and softening any lines and wrinkles.  It can take up to 14 days to see the full result but most patients start to see an improvement after 4 days and results can last 4-6 months, after which another treatment would be required.

 What are the Side Effects?

As with any medication, side effects can happen and include pain at the injection site, bruising, flu-like symptoms, headache, drooping of the upper eyelid and upset stomach.

You should not have treatment if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
