My Botox Journey, Written by Deborah, 42*:

Tip #1 – find a doctor or nurse prescriber in a reputable clinic to give you a great Botox treatment! How do you know who to choose if you’re trying to make a decision to have Botox

There’s so much stigma attached to Botox yet I know from reading magazine articles that it’s one of the most popular treatments you can have to get rid of wrinkles and I was in dire need of some help! So I wanted to find out a bit more about Botox if I was going to go ahead with treatment.

I didn’t realise that Botox had been used in the medical industry for years as a muscle relaxer! That was a real surprise to me. Squints, spasms, incontinence & bells palsy are all positively treated with Botox – even for sufferers of MS. So Botox stops the muscle from working or relaxes it! It now makes sense how it works to smooth facial wrinkles by restricting movement.

Did I want to stop those muscles moving altogether – is that when people look a bit freaky? The trick is to find someone to give you the right amount of Botox to stop you looking frozen. So I set off to read reviews on websites of the doctors in my area.

During my research I also learned that only doctors or nurse prescribers should administer Botox as it is a prescriptive drug, so my first task was to find somebody locally with the right credentials & experience.

I looked at several sites. Some were very professional, large clinics. Some were doctor or nurses’ who didn’t have their own clinic but visited salons, dentists or spas to treat – I didn’t like the idea of being treated in a back room of a hairdressers or beauty salon so I opted for a clinic setting!

I called around by phone to get an idea of prices and to get a feel for what they offered.

Was a consultation needed?
Could they treat me on the day?
Price wise, there wasn’t much in it – about a £50 difference between most of them but I’d already decided that my decision wouldn’t be based on price. Not where my face was concerned!! Most prices were between £275-£325 for 3 areas – I learned that was 2 areas of the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes.

I ended up choosing Changes for a few reasons. They weren’t the cheapest or most expensive. Firstly, the reviews on the website from patients were great. Secondly, the service was professional, friendly but informative and thirdly, because I would be treated by an experienced, vocational, aesthetic doctor.

That was 12 months ago. I chose well. I’ve had 2 great treatment in that time with outcomes that I love.  I trust them to treat my face.

Don’t think I’ll be going anywhere else soon!
