Botox works well for wrinkles that are caused by facial movement, such as crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles. The injections themselves only cause very slight pain and take about fifteen minutes. Botox treatments are generally safe and their effects reversible. However there are recent media reports of people having bad experiences from cosmetic treatments. Here are ten tips which you should consider before choosing a Botox clinic:

1. Injecting Botox is a skilled procedure and should be administered by a qualified and trained practitioner, preferably a doctor. There are experienced nurses who also administer Botox and dermal fillers in the UK.

2. Check that the practitioner has registration with their Cornelius Botox relevant regulatory authority. For UK doctors this is the General Medical Council (GMC). The GMC have an online registration checking service which allows you to check a doctors GMC status online. In the U.S each state have their own regulatory board.

3. Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure it is important to check that the practitioner has appropriate insurance cover, also known as medical indemnity, this is to protect you if something goes wrong.

4. There are many established medical, dental and cosmetic clinics providing Botox and other aesthetic procedures. More recently other premises such as salons, hairdressers, and department stores have started offering Botox wrinkle treatments. Most of these premises are well equipped with suitable standards. Unfortunately a small number are not ideal environments best suited to perform injectable treatments. We would advise you to be more cautious of non mainstream premises. Botox at home and Botox parties are not suitable places to have treatment.

5. Look for signs of service regularity such as clinics that provide Botox treatment clinics at least once weekly in the same location.
