Recently, there has been an increase in ‘Botox parties’ in the UK that has led to compromised safety and compromised results. These treatments are performed in homes by non-medical professionals, in other words illegally, and we are not receiving the attention it needs. It’s essential for you to only go with a medical professional at Botox, like us here in Newmarket.
Botox is prescription-only
Because Botox uses a medically regulated toxin, it is only available through prescription. This also means it should only be performed by trained medical professionals. Doctors, Dentists, Surgeons, and Nurses can all perform Botox if they are professionally trained in aesthetics and can have access to prescription services. These trained professionals should always be trusted over beauticians or non-medical professionals when it comes to keeping safe.
Side effects and complications
Botox injections and treatments do come with side effects, which a medical professional is perfectly aware of and will advise you on. For example, it’s normal to experience some discomfort, minor bruising at the injection sites and potentially flu-like symptoms for around 24-48 hours after your treatment. Your medical professional here at Rebecca Taylor Aesthetics will advise you on how best to approach these side effects and manage them appropriately. If complications do continue to arise after treatment, a medical professional is always the best person to help correct these issues.
Knowing your anatomy
Botox is injected directly into the muscles of the treatment area, meaning it goes more than skin deep. A beautician can be trusted to perform surface-level treatments, but when it comes to anything more than underneath the skin, you should only trust trained professionals. A medical professional that is trained in aesthetics has learned where to place the injections for certain results and understands that injectables are a treatment journey and not just a one-time fix. Because they understand your anatomy, facial features, and the modality of Botox itself better than a non-medical practitioner, your results are likely to be of high quality and achieved a lot safer than with a non-medical professional.
