Botox and fillers have really taken off and are a great way to give you a bit of confidence if you are concerned about the signs of ageing on your face, and there are many people who regularly have these treatments and are very happy with them.
Equally most of us have seen or heard of the horror stories – botched procedures that have caused all sorts of problems that could have been avoided, by people who are not really qualified to be doing these treatments.
With any medical procedure, like most things in life there is always a risk. But when it comes to choosing someone to do these treatments on your face you should definitely err on the side of caution and do plenty of research. There are many places nowadays offering cosmetic treatments but going to a place that is cheap or convenient is not necessarily the best thing to do.
One good way to find a good practitioner is to ask for a recommendation. If you know somebody who has had a treatment like this, then ask them about their experience and to recommend the place they went to you.
The place where you go should be clean and have medical indemnity insurance like this from MPRS, and they should be happy to answer questions that you have and discuss the procedure with you. If you feel that something isn’t quite right it often isn’t so go with your gut when you are finding somewhere suitable.
