If you are looking into trying Botox treatment you may already have come across, ‘Johnny Botox’, during your internet searches. Jonny Botox has been outed by the BBC as a disgraced nurse who has been struck off the nurses register and is not qualified to either prescribe or administer Botox. He is not the only unqualified person who has been treating people under false pretences, a, ‘bogus’, nurse in Liverpool did exactly the same thing. We all like a bargain and it is tempting to go to the cheapest place to get treatment, but are you willing to risk your appearance and health to save a small amount of money?
Medical Not Beauty Treatment
When it comes to medical procedures that are also beauty treatments the importance of qualifications and experience seem to diminish. The same issue occured with tooth whitening treatment Administering botox treatment is not just about sticking a syringe into someone’s wrinkles and getting paid for it. First of all Botox is only available on prescription so where do unregistered people source theirs? Also having knowledge of how muscles work and are connected together ensures that the Botox can be administered correctly.
What’s Your Poison?
Botox is intended to enhance your looks not change them completely. Going to a registered clinic becomes much more appealing when you realise that the main ingredient of Botox is derived from the bacteria in botulism, which is food poisoning. It seems really strange that people who are so conscious of their looks, that they can’t always go out without makeup on, are prepared to risk disfigurement for the sake of a month’s worth of wine.
Qualified Botox Practitioner
A qualified and registered practitioner will have medical knowledge and will tend to make decisions about your treatment based on your health as well as appearance. It is advised that you don’t start having Botox treatment too young because many wrinkles are due to facial expression rather than aging skin. Botox treatment should be subtle and not leave you looking like your face has been frozen in a wind tunnel.
