Where to get the best Botox in London

Botox is the world’s most popular non-surgical treatment and is a very effective way of getting rid of fine lines and deep wrinkles. It works by relaxing the facial muscles, making the skin appear smoother. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, with effects lasting for around three months.

In London, there are numerous facial skin clinics offering Botox injections. So how do you know which one is best? Here are a few pointers for choosing the right place.

Botox has been described as an art not a science. A skilled practitioner will know where – and how much – to inject to achieve the best results. However, it is also important to bear in mind that this is a medical procedure. The practitioner should be a medical professional, ideally a doctor or dentist, and the environment needs to be safe and clean. You can check online that the doctor is registered with the General Medical Council.

You should always feel comfortable with the practitioner you choose and ensure that your doctor is registered with the General Medical Council or General Dental Council. Many clinics offer free consultations so you can ask questions and discuss any concerns you have. A good practitioner will not pressure you into having treatment. Instead he or she will advise on how best to achieve the results you want, whether it’s getting rid of sagginess around the mouth or smoothing out crow’s feet.

Botox can take a couple of weeks to settle so it’s important that the clinic offers a follow up service, to check how your face has responded to the injections.

And lastly, try not to be swayed by price. There are many clinics that compete by offering the lowest prices, but very often you get what you pay for, with disreputable clinics using unqualified practitioners or diluted substances. And when it comes to your face, is it worth the risk?

We are happy to answer any questions you might have. For further information or to book a free consultation, please call: 0207 637 1672
