While Botox is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world, it nevertheless needs to be prescribed by a qualified healthcare professional such as a doctor or a nurse with independent prescribing qualifications.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 20 August 2012
Mr Bryan Mayou, a leading aesthetic surgery expert and founder of the Cadogan Clinic, highlights the importance of seeing a qualified practitioner when it comes to considering the Botox treatment London clients are increasingly using. The position of Mr Mayou is prompted by an undercover investigation by the BBC which recently exposed the unethical and even illegal side of Botox administration and the new rules on the prescriptions of anti-aging drugs which the General Medical Council (GMC) is expected to introduce shortly.
Mr Mayou, who has broad expertise and experience in aesthetic surgery and is a member of the British Association of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (BAPRAS) and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), notes that the people, who would like to receive Botox treatment, should see a qualified practitioner. “With a treatment like Botox it is always best to see a registered consultant face to face”, he says.
The statement of Mr Mayou comes as a response to the undercover investigation of the BBC which highlighted the need for a ban on remote Botox prescriptions. On 9 July 2012, the BBC reported that the GMC was going to publish new rules so as to stop doctors from remotely prescribing injectable cosmetic drugs such as Botox.
While Botox is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world, it nevertheless needs to be prescribed by a qualified healthcare professional such as a doctor or a nurse with independent prescribing qualifications. An unqualified Botox user on the other hand is simply applying Botox to every patient who comes along rather than considering each patient as an individual. In certain cases, Botox may not be the most appropriate treatment and the practitioner may not have the needed expertise to recommend an alternative treatment.
A qualified practitioner such as a dermatologist on the other hand will not only select the best wrinkle reducing option for the individual patient but is also likely to be more knowledgeable and experienced in the skill of administering the precise location and quantity of injections to give the most natural result. “At the Cadogan Clinic we have many to choose from”, points out Mr Mayou. Consultants at the Cadogan Clinic, which is one of the best places for Botox treatment London-based patients have available to them, believe that open communication and personal attention are essential for achieving satisfactory results. Prospective clients therefore have an initial consultation when they are given the opportunity to voice all their concerns and get professional feedback.
In addition to the popular Botox treatment, London-based patients of the Cadogan Aesthetic Clinic can benefit from other anti-aging procedures as well. The clinic uses the most advanced technologies and products so as to deliver long-lasting results while at the same time ensuring that clients are comfortable from the moment of their initial consultation, throughout the entire treatment and up until they complete their follow-up visits. “The Cadogan Clinic is a centre of excellence with the best dermatologist, plastic and aesthetic surgeons to guarantee the best results,” notes Mr Mayou.
