Wrinkle-smoothing injections (or Botox injections as they are more commonly referred) are undoubtedly still the most popular, non-surgical anti-ageing injections in the world. Across the globe, millions of people swear by Botox injections to temporarily smooth expression lines and dynamic wrinkles, offering results that can last up to 6 months at a time. Why? Because quite simply, when administered by a highly-qualified medical professional in a safe and clinical setting, Botox injections work! At the Harley Street Face Clinic here in the heart of the West End of London, we offer Botox injections to thousands of our loyal patients with stunning results. Our team are medically trained and highly-experienced and use not only their extensive knowledge of the human facial anatomy to deliver natural-looking yet effective results, but use artistry, personality assessment and analytical observation – all in a highly-regulated and clinical environment.
As Botox injections are hugely popular, the demand for perhaps less experienced or even non-qualified practitioners to start offering this procedure to unsuspecting patients is high. Some patients who aren’t aware that it takes not only years of medical experience but an artistic, analytical eye and strict safety precautions to ensure a successful and safe treatment, may be tempted by cheap offers and ‘too-good-to-be-true’ promotions which, can ultimately put their looks and health at risk. After all, Botulinum Toxin Type A, the substance used in Botox injections (Botox happens to be a brand name and there are several reputable brands on the market) is a prescribed substance and can only legally be administered by a medical professional. So how do we choose the right practitioner for our Botox injections and how can we ensure beautiful results, safely, every time?
Unlike a luxury facial or massage, cannot be thought of as a treatment anyone can do. There are many aspects to consider, such as the quality and safety of the products used to the number of years’ experience your chosen practitioner possesses.
Below are 5 key considerations to choosing the best possible practitioner for your Botox treatment.
