Botox treatment for lines and wrinkles
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?
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.
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

crows feet and vertical frown lines. Botox is licenced for the treatment

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
Tinkable Botox clinics .
