You might come across clinics offering really cheap Botox. Their prices can often be substantially lower than the general price range usually charged by aesthetics clinics – almost too good to be true, but in many ways they often are.
Botox patients are consumers, not medical professionals. Not everyone is aware of what they buying and who they are buying it from. Forewarned is forearmed, so make sure you know what you are getting next time you book a Botox treatment.
WHO IS GIVING YOU YOUR TREATMENT?
Firstly, always make sure your treatment is administered by a qualified medical professional. Beauty therapists are certainly NOT qualified or insured to give injections! For best results, this treatment should only be given by a doctor, qualified to administer Botox. Ideally they will be an experienced aesthetic practitioner. The very best practitioners tend to be those from plastic surgery, maxillo facial and dermatology backgrounds – specialists in the skin, facial tissues and cosmetic issues. An experienced practitioner will only be too happy to show you their before and after photos.
HOW IS YOUR TREATMENT GIVEN?
A conscientious practitioner will review your full medical history prior to treatment. They will assess your needs and advise you of alternative treatments should they be more suitable. They will take information and photos for your file and they will be more than happy to discuss the procedure prior to your treatment, and give you full aftercare instructions afterwards. All risks will be explained to you and only patients deemed suitable will receive their treatment following their assessment.
WHAT IS IN YOUR TREATMENT?
Botox is now available in a variety of formats. Some very cheap varieties do exist although their strength and longevity is questionable. Your practitioner should explain the difference between these so that you can make an informed choice.
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR
Very cheap clinics promote their Botox treatments by quoting a very low price. But usually this is not the price you end up paying. Botox treatments are often priced according to the number of areas treated. The reason is simple: the more areas you need treated, the more treatment you need. Cheap clinics usually are quoting the price the treatments start from. This would be for one treatment area only – it is unusual for just one area to be treated. Most patients require treatments to 2-3 areas to obtain maximum benefit from their Botox treatment. Be sure to obtain information for all pricing structures. Also ask if there is any consultation fee – in many cases there often is.[ad_2]
