Thinking about Botox® treatment? Use a qualified Botox
The last 15 years have seen an increase in number of people -
both male and female - taking advantage of the results Botox®
treatments can give for excessive sweating, as well as facial lines
However, choosing a clinic and qualified Botox® practitioner in
and around Glasgow for the first time can seem a daunting prospect
but there are a few simple factors which can help you make the
right choice for you.
How Botox® works?
At its simplest, Botox® is injected into various areas of the
skin, such as the face. The toxin then relaxes the muscles, an
effect that can take a few days to become fully visible. As a
result, the skin looks smoother and more youthful.
If you need help choosing a qualified Botox practitioner in
Glasgow, follow these few simple guidelines to get the
- Injecting Botox®, as with several other non-surgical
treatments, is a skilled procedure and should be administered by a
qualified medical practitioner - either an Independant Nurse
Prescriber, Doctor or Dentist; ask clinics for their qualifications
- Some qualified Botox® practitioners in Glasgow and across the
UK are registered with various regulatory authorities. This shows
that not only do they meet basic guidelines but they also take
their skills and practice seriously.
- Check insurance cover before you undergo any cosmetic procedure
at any clinic
- Established medical, dental and cosmetic clinics can and do
provide treatments by qualified Botox® practitioners. However, more
recently, other establishments such as salons and hairdressers etc.
have also started to offer treatments. Some of these places
unfortunately, do not operate to the same high clinical standards
as other facilities. Be cautious of such places, check out the
salon etc. before you commit to any treatment, Botox® or
- Check out the reviews patients leave regarding the clinic;
online forums as well as the clinics own website are good places to
- Look for clinics that focus exclusively on non-surgical
procedures such as Botox® and dermal fillers.
- Many clinics with qualified Botox® practitioners offer free
consultations to clients who are curious and undecided about Botox®
or any other non-surgical procedure. This is an excellent way for
you to check the facilities on offer at the clinic and whether you
feel comfortable there or not.
- Check what after-service the clinic offers as Botox® can take
up to 2 weeks for the full effects to be visible. A review
appointment after 2 weeks is good practice to assess the results
and fine tune any areas requiring extra treatment to get the
results you want.
- And finally, keep an eye on the price of Botox® treatments on
offer. Botox® is not cheap to buy and so ridiculously cheap
treatments may suggest that prescribing guidelines are not being
adhered to, quality will be lacking, as well as customer service
and follow up services.
Once you've made your choice, sit back and relax. You will be
truly amazed at the results that Botox® treatment can have!
