Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog talks about selecting a practitioner to carry out the botox procedure.
I am not overly concerned as to which healthcare professional people choose, it is more about their experience that is the critical factor.
Being a dentist, I am biased (rightly so in my eyes) that dentists are the best at carrying out botox procedures. My reasoning is twofold. Firstly we carry out injections on a daily basis on patients that can be extremely nervous about their visit to the dentist. We have many years experience of giving injections as comfortable as possible for the patient. Secondary, we spend a lot more time compared to other undergraduates, in learning about the anatomy of the head and neck. We understand the muscles, nerve supply, blood vessels and important structures in the face and we can incorporate this detailed anatomical knowledge when giving injections in the face.
As pointed out earlier, you cannot beat experience. Have a look at their own before and after pictures and patient testimonials. Ask how long they have been doing it and if they solely concentrate on facial aesthetics (like myself) or combine it with dentistry.
Make sure they have been adequately trained and have the correct insurance in place. Don’t be afraid to ask to see their certificated and insurance, these should be readily available for you to inspect.
Go with your gut feeling. If you are unsure or feel you have been rushed, then take your time. Go home and think about it or try another consultation with someone else. You want to make sure you feel comfortable with the practitioner carrying out the botox.
