Qualified Botox® Practitioner Glasgow

Thinking about Botox® treatment? Use a qualified Botox practitioner

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 and wrinkles.

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 best:

  1. 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 and experience.  
  2. 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.
  3. Check insurance cover before you undergo any cosmetic procedure at any clinic
  4. 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 otherwise.
  5. Check out the reviews patients leave regarding the clinic; online forums as well as the clinics own website are good places to start.
  6. Look for clinics that focus exclusively on non-surgical procedures such as Botox® and dermal fillers.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
