  • Are there any risks to having these treatments?
    Yes, non-invasive aesthetics procedure such as injecting botulinum toxin or dermal fillers into the face have risks. However, we do our utmost to mitigate this risk. For example, we may perform a pre-injection ultrasound scan, and use the correct injection techniques that are currently recommended. If any adverse reactions do occur, we are at hand to resolve them.

    Yes, and it must be prescribed by a practitioner that has a license to prescribe prescription only medication (POMS) following a face-to-face consultation. We cannot do remote or virtual consultations and you cannot be prescribed a medication by the request of a no pre-scribing colleague. We will manage the prescription of botulinum toxin for you following your initial consultation with a registered prescriber.
  • Is dermal filler a prescription only medication?
    Currently no, however there is legislation that may come into force that will make dermal fillers also a prescription medication. Dermal fillers often contain a small amount of lidocaine which is a local anaesthetic. Lidocaine is a prescription only medication.

  • Is there any reason that you might refuse to give me the treatment I desire?
    Yes this may happen. We will only prescribe and deliver treatments that have been based on a face-to-face consultation where we have assessed your suitability to treatment.

We may also refuse to deliver any procedure that we feel is risky or may result in an abnormal post treatment look such as over filler lips for example.
