Contemplating Fillers or anti-wrinkle injections? There are so many clinics and practitioners to choose from. How do you decide? No treatment comes without a level of risk but it’s about keeping that risk as low as possible.

Be safe when thinking about facial aesthetics, here are the main things to look for, do your homework and choose wisely.

Is the person who they say they are? Are they a registered professional such as a nurse, a doctor or a dentist? Check their qualifications and do they undertake regular training to stay updated? Ask to see evidence of the training they have undergone. How long have they been practising and check out feedback and reviews.

Is the clinic, Health Improvement Scotland (HIS, Scotland only) registered? HIS makes sure that all registered clinics abide by very stringent policies to ensure client safety. Check if the environment looks and feels safe aswell, as fit for practice? Check if the clinic or practitioner is fully insured.

Make sure the products are genuine and appropriately licensed from trustworthy sources, if you see cheap be wary. Internet makes things accessible and cheaper in many cases but for toxins such as Botox, Bocouture® and other Toxins; these are prescription only medicines, so a consultation is required followed by a prescription being completed.
