You might not want to talk to friends about Botox doctors yet where do you get honest advice ?
Do Your Research
Focus only on practitioners who are known for their talent and skill. Look for doctors who have spent years specializing in injectable aesthetic treatments. These doctors are always keeping up to speed with the latest in aesthetic medicine & procedures.
Read Patient Reviews
47% of patients who look up a doctor online will choose their practitioner by the feeling they get after reading their profile and reviews. Look at the brands of injectables used at the clinic too.
Only Choose Experienced Botox Doctors
Botox is a prescription medication and should only be injected by a medically qualified practitioner. An experienced aesthetic doctor will have treated hundreds of patients like you.
Best NOT to choose someone who may have completed a training course in Botox & Fillers but has not injected very many faces.
Never underestimate expertise and hands-on experience & never be afraid to ask your injector how many patients they have successfully treated.
Practitioner’s Training & Qualifications
Check that the practitioner is registered with their relevant regulatory authority. In Ireland it will be with the Irish Medical Council, In Northern Ireland & the UK it will be the General Medical Council.
Medical & Cosmetic Insurance
You need to be protected if something should go wrong. Ensure that the practitioner has appropriate cosmetic insurance cover. Doctors must meet stringent criteria to be insured.
Have a Consultation with your chosen Botox Doctor
The more reliable clinics offer Doctor / Patient consultations at an extra cost. Use this time to ask lots of questions of the doctor who will be injecting your face. They will inform you of all the benefits and possible side effects of Botox injections. Let them know about your medical history or any concerns you may have.
Beware the Free Consultation
Most aesthetic doctors will spend at least 30 minutes with a first-time patient. Clinics offering ‘free’ consultations will be keen for you to proceed with a treatment to cover the cost of their doctor’s time. After all, who do you know that works for free?
To avoid being upsold to-best to steer clear of the free consultation. A better option is to choose a clinic where the doctors consultation fee is deducted from the cost of your treatment.
Expect a Review & Aftercare Service
The doctor you choose should offer a follow-up service. If you are having Botox for the first time you will want to be certain that you are getting the best result and that the doctor who injected you is always available to discuss your treatment.
Check Prices & Dosage
Do NOT pay the lowest price in town. Botox is an expensive prescription medication. If someone charges less than the going rate then they might not be using real Botox or injecting the recommended dosage into each area.
You will have heard about people getting Botox injections which did not seem to last very long. This might be because the Botox was over-diluted or not enough Botox was injected.
Ask your doctor how many units of Botox you will need to get your desired results.
Botox Dosage & Injection Sites
Forehead: 16-20 units
Laugh Lines (around eyes): 10-13 units per side
Glabella (between eyes): 23-26 units
You should not allow toxins to be injected into your face by just anyone! Some Beauty Salons & Pop – Up Clinics offer cheap Botox. Many injectors in these non-clinical environments are not equipped to correct or follow up on a procedure if it goes wrong.
The better beauty salons use specialist registered + insured medical practitioners to provide anti wrinkle injections to their clients.
