I can find cheaper cosmetic treatments such as Botox on the high street

Yes, many of the cosmetic treatments are nowadays offered widely on the high street, sometimes you may see offers such as 3 for the price of 2. The cosmetic industry lacks regulation in the UK and anyone, without any medical background, can legally provide treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers. More and more we see patients coming to us with complications from cosmetic treatments done on the high street by beauticians or nurses, who work without doctor’s supervision. Botched procedures are unfortunately on the rise. Please remember, safety is paramount! Check your practitioners’ credentials, ask yourself if they understand human anatomy and can deal with complications, should they occur. Can they prescribe antibiotics if required or dissolve your filler in an emergency situation? If ‘No’ is an answer to any of these, find another practitioner.
