Botox at Selston - Safely Put Your Face in Our Hands - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Botox is an injectable treatment used to improve the signs of ageing on the face, whether to reduce  the deep lines on the forehead or to relax the facial muscles to give asymmetry to the face. Botox is actually a purified toxin, but although it is a toxin, when used in small amounts, it doesn't cause any damage to the body.

Botox is a prescription only medicine, so doctors, dentists and registered nurses can prescribe and inject botox, however, beauticians can inject botox, but their clients must first be given a face-to-face consultation with a medical professional who can prescribe the drug. With botox being a prescription-only medicine, it's illegal for beauticians to use any botox that hasn't been prescribed for you.

When considering getting botox, the first thing you should do, is see a medical professional. You are having an injectable treatment, so it's imperative you should choose a  trained, qualified practitioner to inject the botox into your face and they'll need steady hands, the eye of an artist, and the ability and passion to get it just right.

Good practitioners are those who have been doing facial aesthetics for a several years, who go on training courses and have a good knowledge of facial anatomy, but there are some people who try to treat people with little or no training. Theoretically, on one day someone can go on a beginner’s botox course, and the next day go on an advanced course, during this time they may have only ever injected one client, but they can call themselves an advanced practitioner. 

A face to face consultation is essential, as the practitioner will listen to what you would like to improve, and assess whether botox treatment is suitable for you, while taking note of your aesthetic concerns, preferences and your desired results. The practitioner will also tell you the risks, which can include allergic reactions, bruising and minimal swelling.

  • A good botox treatment will have precisely placed injections in strategic places; into your frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet around the eyes and neck bands, leaving you with smoother, younger skin that looks more relaxed and healthy.
  • Botox administered by unprofessional, untrained people, is a different story. Too much injected botox can leave you with an unnatural frozen look, or when it's injected somewhere on the face it shouldn't have been, it can cause asymmetry and drooping eyes.
Even after many warnings on television and in newspaper articles, an increasing number of women, and men, are still taking the risk of having botox injections done by people with no medical qualifications or knowledge of facial anatomy, who basically are just injecting it into your face and hoping for the best. 

In the hands of a fully trained practitioner, the safe, effective placement of botox can create a natural look which will make your face look and feel more refreshed and relaxed.
