Botox Treatments In Oxford
There are many places in which to have Botox treatments in Oxford and the Oxfordshire area, however being prepared to ask the right questions will be key to having a safe and successful result.
Only recently, Save Face reported on a TV show called FAKE BRITAIN that illegally sourced fake “Botox” was being used by practitioners claiming to be medical professionals. So how can you best protect yourself if you are considering a Botox treatment?
Research and Preparation
Preparation is key. Taking the time to research the right practitioner for you will help reduce your risk of stumbling into the wrong hands and being misinformed about the treatment. It is not a decision to jump into.
Trust and mutual understanding of expectations is paramount to the success of your treatments therefore here are a few tips to follow when considering Botox.
A few tips to remember when searching for an aesthetic practitioner:
If possible, take recommendation from someone you trust, or seek reviews of the person and company.
Make sure a consultation is provided in person with the practitioner before you have any treatments, and that you are not obliged to have a treatment if you attend.
Find out who will be consulting and treating you. Make sure it is the same person who consults with you so that your expectations are in line with the person treating.
Ensure the practitioner has a medical professional background such as a Doctor, Nurse or Dentist. Don’t be afraid to ask for their professional registration number before meeting and look them up on their professional register such as the NMC.
Ask about their professional indemnity insurance
Ask about their experience
Ask about the risks of the treatments being discussed. These should be fully disclosed and discussed as well as being written for you to read.
Trust your instincts; if it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it.
