THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN YOUR BOTOX PROVIDER

It goes without saying that your aesthetic medical provider should be a trained professional.  In the UK this should be a Doctor, a Dentist or a Nurse.  They should have a good, sound knowledge of the anatomy of the area they are treating along with knowledge of pitfalls and side effects.

They should have been trained under proper strict accredited training programs and will have spent years learning the basics of their craft.

They should be prepared to talk to you about the limits of treatments and whether that treatment is right for you.

Proper consent should be obtained and you should have time to read the possible side effects and sign an informed consent.

Your practitioner should ask about and understand any illnesses you have and any medications you might be taking.  They should know how to advise you about the things you should do after your treatment and should arrange a follow up appointment to assess how the treatment has worked.

The equipment they use should be of the highest standard and stored and maintained to clinical levels.  The drugs they use should be stored in a clinical fridge where constant temperatures are maintained.

Sterility should be to clinical standards, ie the same as those that you would find in a hospital and gloves and wipes etc should be to that standard.  Needles should be the finest possible for that treatment.

The ‘used’ needles and swabs should be disposed of in clinical waste bags and sharps boxes after each treatment so that no cross contamination can occur and the bags and boxes need to be taken away by a registered waste management company.

On site should be emergency drugs to deal with possible adverse reactions and the practitioner should be trained in dealing with those.

IF YOUR PRACTITIONER IS NOT DOING THE ABOVE YOU SHOULD QUESTION WHETHER THEY ARE THE RIGHT PRACTITIONER FOR YOU
