Botox over a period of 20 years has been used to treat thousands of patients medically and cosmetically. This treatment aims to rejuvenate the face as well as maintaining a patient’s natural features.
Despite the fact that it is available everywhere from hair salons to homes, for a practitioner to administer the treatment as safely and legally as possible, full training is a necessity and must hold appropriate qualifications. This implies that treatment has to be prescribed by either a doctor, a dentist, a pharmacist or a nurse. In the case where a prescriber allows a patient to administer the treatment to himself, he/she is mandated to follow up and ensure it is administered as prescribed.
When choosing a practitioner, it calls for one to select a right and well experienced aesthetic practitioner. The guide to getting good experience has to be taken into consideration. Since the popularity of a medication means there are available clinics and practitioners who are offering a successful treatment, the guide to getting proper treatment will help to ensure that you choose a safe practitioner and a reputable clinic.
When in search of a good practitioner, it is advisable to choose a doctor-led clinic with properly trained and experienced staffs in the service delivery. The term appropriately qualified for this treatment means that the individual offering the medication must be a cosmetic doctor, dermatologists, a nurse, or surgeon.
Depending on the type of treatment to take, careful procedures must be considered. The individual offering must be registered with the recommended governing institutions. Such institutions should include, The General Medical Council, The Royal College of Nursing and The General Dental Council. If a dermatologist or a skin care professional is administering you with the treatment, you have to check how much experience they have and at least seek to meet the doctor who will be supplying the Botox for them. You can still check on their membership on relevant websites.
If you are looking for a surgeon, a different procedure applies. Rajiv Grover a consultation plastic surgeon and the president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons recommends that, for cosmetic surgeons, when making an inquiry, ensure that he/she is on the Specialist Register of Plastic Surgeons that are maintained by the GMC. Make sure they have performed the task at least thirty times a year. The qualified surgeons on the list are elected by their peers and are audited annually to enhance efficient service delivery.
Sharron Bennett a cosmetic nurse offering Botox treatment, also the vice chairman of BACN recommends that working with an experienced a nurse or a doctor is rejuvenating. When making the selection of a nursing practitioner, it is advised for the client to confirm whether they are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Also, it is necessary to seek their proof of insurance to maintain and enhance liability in case of an accident. On the other hand, to maintain good results after this experience, you have to follow doctors post treatment advice thoroughly to ensure that the results of treatment last long as possible. Such advice will include, avoiding lying down, excessive facial movement and extreme physical activities for at least three hours after treatment. Also, make sure you use high-quality skin care products for your medical spa experience.
