Woodford Medical's Top Tips for finding a good practitioner

16 August 2018

1. Do your homework

Research Botox® to find out exactly what it is and how it works so your expectations are realistic. A lot of people get confused between Botox® and Fillers, both have their place but work in very different ways and are suitable for different areas of the face. A good medical practitioner will recommend which of these will work best for your areas of concern and the contours of your face.

2. Cost

Do not be lured by offers and reductions on injectable treatments. This is your face and you cannot risk having inferior products injected by inferior practitioners. Expertise and reputable products are never discounted.

3. Take your time

Make sure you get a proper consultation with a fully qualified medical practitioner before you go ahead. This is a prescription only product that is being injected and therefore should only ever be injected by a suitably qualified practitioner. If you feel rushed at all, or they start pushing you with different sales pitches, this might not be the practitioner for you.

4. Keep it up

Once you've had your first treatment, expect to see your medical practitioner again after two weeks for a review, they need to see it's settling in OK and adjust if necessary.

The effects of Botox® last approximately three months and repeat injections at that point mean unwanted lines and wrinkles won’t start to kick in again and you maintain the look rather than having an up and down transformation.

5. Build a relationship

We would always recommend going to someone who specialises in medical aesthetics treatments, rather than someone who has tagged Botox® on to another profession.

As far as we’re concerned, it really is practice makes perfect with Botox® and the more treatments a practitioner does, the better they are at it.

Once you have started treatment with a medical practitioner and are happy with how it's going, it does pay to build a relationship with them. That way they get to know your skin and as long as they keep a clear record of all your treatments you will be going in the right direction. Stick with them, direct them in how you like the effect to look and you should get into a good routine.
