You might think that you could get a Botox Injection from a number of places in Manchester and Cheshire. They seem to be advertised all over the place, in every salon and hairdressers, and every beauty therapist you come across seems to be able to offer you some kind of facial injection.
But are they legitimate? Is it really Botox in the injection? And do they really know what they are doing?
Botox is a prescription medication, and so the only people who should be legally working with Botox are doctors and Independent Nurse Prescribers. Do you think your local beauty therapist is one of those?
Botox Injections can be a highly effective solution to some of the issues you might have with your face, but it’s extremely important that they are administered correctly and with the right dosage. Complications can and do occur if you are not careful.
The European Union is planning on publishing new guidelines next year in order to crack down on those individuals and businesses who should not be offering Botox treatments, but until those new rules and regulations come into force, you need to be really careful about who you chose if you are searching for facial injection treatments.
At Julia Knightley, we specialise in non surgical cosmetic treatments, including Botox injections, and as such, we are members of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses, fully qualified and registered on the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and most importantly, an Independent Nurse Prescriber.
Oh, and we also do things a little bit different. A little bit more refined, and a little bit more... luxurious.
