Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic from Stevenage in Hertfordshire talks about the confusion surrounding who is allowed to carry out botox procedures.
There has been a lot of press activity recently regarding who is allowed and properly qualified to administer botox and other non surgical procedures, such as dermal fillers.
Guidelines currently allow professionals with a medical background/training to safely administer botox injections. These include, but are not limited to dentists, doctors, medical nurses, dental hygienists.
It strongly states that beauticians and beauty therapists should not administer botox injections. The problem does not allow with the procedure itself but the after care, any potential medical complications and adequate insurance if the patient is not happy with the results.
The other factor is always insist on a face to face consultation. Here youc an discuss your concerns, have any questions answered and discuss the best options for you regarding your botox treatment. You will also be able to judge the experience of the practitioner and if you feel comfortable undergoing the botox procedure with them. Under no circumstances should you feel pressurised to undergo the treatment at the same visit. If you are unsure, walk away and give yourself time to reflect on all the information you have before deciding what action you will take.
Dr Singh has been carrying out botox since 2002 and is a qualified dentists. He regularly updates his clinical and non clinical skills in facial aesthetics.
