We welcome new legislation to prevent under 18s receiving botox and filler treatments for cosmetic reasons.
Zoe tells you all about it…
What Do You Think I Need?
Our free consultations are designed to give you an opportunity to have an open and honest conversation with one of our specialist practitioners about how we can help resolve the issues you are looking to address (fine lines & wrinkles, deeper lines and folds, skin laxity, acne scarring, excessive sweating, migraines etc).
You don’t have to know which treatment option is going to be best for you; we’re the experts so let us guide you through the treatment portfolio and make appropriate recommendations. It could be Botox or a dermal filler, a Silhouette thread lift, a collagen stimulant, a skin peel or one of our FDA approved latest generation rejuvenation devices. Don’t worry if you’re nervous or unsure; there is no pressure or obligation to have any treatment at this stage (although we do allocate enough time so that if you want to, we can proceed to it straight away) and we’ve got plenty of experience and knowledge so can answer all your questions and address any concerns.
Let’s Have a Chat
The conversation is likely to flow easily but we can tickle information out of you by asking a variety of questions including:
- What issues are you looking to address?
- What results are you hoping to achieve?
- Have you had any treatments before and if so, how did you get on?
- Are you working to any particular time scales e.g. is there a big event coming up?
- Is a one-off treatment more convenient or do you have time to undergo an intensive treatment programme?
- What is your budget?
We’ll also talk you through the product, the treatment process, any possible side effects and prices. If you decide to proceed to treatment, we’ll go through a patient history and talk you through some clinic paperwork which will include a treatment consent form which will need completing and signing. We will also take a photograph for our patient records.
Pull a Face Please…
For our Botox patients, we will ask that they pull a few faces (a frown, grimace and cheesy grin) so we can see exactly which muscle groups are being used to enable us to target these specifically during treatment. It may be that we need to check the elasticity of your skin or the depth of creases and folds, so there may also be some gentle prodding and poking.
Face on or Face Off?
Don’t worry about coming to the consultation prepared for treatment. We have appropriate wipes to remove make up and deodorants so see how you feel and if you’re happy to go ahead, we can make sure you are fully prepared and primed for treatment. If you want to go away and think about things, do a bit of research or shop around, there is no charge for our consultations which, like our review and follow up appointments, are always free of charge.
