Botox treatments were once just for celebrities and the rich, Incredibly Botox is now listed as one of the UK's most popular non-surgical treatments. People now, more then ever, openly speak to their friends and families about their Botox treatments.
Initially, if you are new to Botox you may be forgiven for thinking that buying Botox is similar to buying a tin of beans and that Botox is the same, no matter who administers your Botox or which clinic you have your treatment with.
But this is far from the truth. Here are just a few items you may wish to look at when considering Botox treatment.
Is the clinic a registered clinic?
Tinkable are registered and accredited by Save Face so you know you are in safe hands for your Botox treatment.. Save Face is an independent regulator for the cosmetic industry, in order to be accredited each practitioner within the clinic will be interviewed, everything from qualifications, insurance, professional standing, record keeping, quality of service and experience is examined and confirmed.
The clinic itself is physically inspected and all its procedures and protocols are inspected to ensure patient safety.
Who will administer my Botox treatment?
As Botox treatments become more popular, so too has the number and types of practitioners. It is imperative that your practitioner is medically qualified, has specialist training in Botox and has significant experience to enable them to assess and deliver you a tailored prescription for Botox.
Our practitioners are all medically qualified and specialist trained, each is employed with Tinkable and have the full support of the organisation. Each of our practitioners have had several years of training, advanced training and continued update training in the form of master classes and one to one specific specialist training from Allergan the manufacturer of Botox. In addition our practitioners at Tinkable have a huge wealth of experience in treating with Botox and we often solve problems for people which were created by other practitioners or clinics. In the unlikely event, we have a network of clinical experts for referral and support.
Will I see the same practitioner each time?
To have a Botox treatment and then find it difficult to see the same practitioner if you are not happy is common practice especially within national chains of clinics. Their practitioners change very often and their place of work can change on a daily basis, with an independent practitioner you may find they have little or no availability when it comes to concerns with a treatment, many have little or poor experience and even less resources available. Each Botox treatment at Tinkable comes with a free treatment check-up about two weeks after your Botox treatment. It’s important to us that you are happy with your treatment and we thrive on feedback. We constantly ask our clients for reviews and encourage constructive criticism, these we post on our Google plus pages and on our Facebook page. Our team have the experience and know how to deal with any concern you have post treatment and we provide you with a 24 hour aftercare number. We learn from your experience and we develop our practice based on our clients’ feedback.
Your Botox Consultation.
Your Botox treatment should always be preceded by a formal consultation. Initial discussions at your consultation will determine your concerns, needs and expected results. A detailed medical history and assessment will be needed and every aspect of the treatment should be discussed. Red flag any consultation that gives more emphasis on promoting the treatment rather then equally discussing the possible side effects of a Botox treatment. Your consultation will also discuss the expected duration, your review and of course your aftercare. Please ensure that the person who provides your consultation also gives you the treatment and will prescribe your Botox.
General uses of Botox.
For the lines and wrinkles that are caused when muscles contract, IE not visible at rest but only visible during expression, Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra etc are not a suitable solution and should not be considered. Botox, Azzalure or Vistabel are all strains of the same Toxin and each will offer a solution for frown lines, crows feet and other dynamic wrinkles.
Tinkable offer Botox treatments for both upper face and areas of the lower face. The most popular areas for upper are the crows feet, between the eyebrows and then the horizontal lines across the forehead. All these areas can be treated at the one time or you may elect to have anyone or any two areas treated. The lower face treatments are usually the jaw line, the chin to remove that dimple orange peel effect, around the mouth and of course the neck.
A brief Background to Botox
Botox was first approved in 1989 in Italy to treat patients with facial spasm disorders. It became increasingly apparent that crows feet and frown lines were diminishing and softening and in many cases vanishing altogether.
Botox is a muscle relaxant agent which is produced from bacteria. It's method of action interferes with muscle contraction to enable the botox to smooth out lines and wrinkles with extremely effective and long lasting results.
Current Uses for Botox.
Botox treatments are now the UK's most popular cosmetic treatment and was recently approved by the FDA in the US.
In a cosmetic field, Botox effectively treats horizontal frown lines, crows feet and vertical frown lines. Botox is licenced for the treatment of underarm sweating and more recently for the treatment of migraines. Most of its uses within the aesthetics field are extremely effective and most strains have achieved various levels of either
FDA approval or UK licensing.
Botox is the only Toxin within the UK that is licenced for frown lines and crows feet
Botox Treatment and Results
Following a thorough medical consultation the procedure is very simple, virtually painless, leaving minimal trace of treatment.
Optimum results can often be seen just two days after a Botox treatment. However with some strains it may take up to 21 days for optimal results. At Tinkable we offer you the opportunity to revisit your practitioner, for a post treatment check up to ensure you are completely satisfied with your results.Botox injection prices.
Botox Injection prices are normally given per area. Each Row below in black represent one area, with discounts given if a second and/or third area is treated at the one session.
Considering Botox Treatment?
When considering a Botox treatment, price is important, we all like to get value for money. However, please be aware of extremely low botox prices offered by inexperienced practitioners, and above all avoid at all cost treatment with non-medical practitioners.
When having Botox your results will last in the region of 2 to 4 months. Any imperfections of treatment will also last that length also. So rather than choosing the cheapest why not choose the best. Ask how many years your practitioner has been doing these treatments and how many patients a day they treat.
They should have at least 3 -5 years’ experience and be seeing at least 5 to 7 people each day for Botox treatment. Confident practitioners will offer a free check-up, but make sure this will be with the same practitioner who did the initial treatment.
