Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens at your Treatment?

  1. Firstly, we will conduct a face to face consultation. You will need to share your medical history, undertake a full skin analysis, ask any questions and take as much time as you need to consider whether to go ahead with the treatment or cancel. 

  2. You will be asked to sign the standard consent form. The form details the treatment you will have, cost, the fact that you have had a consultation and a cooling off period and that the risk of side effects and likely results having been explained to you.

  3. Before and after photos will be taken to check the pre and post results of the treatment. The photos will not be used for any other purpose and will be confidentially held in your client file for 7 years before they are destroyed. This is an industry and insurance requirement.

  4. We will then carry out the treatment, first cleaning the skin, then applying a topical local anesthetic to the area to be treated. We then inject the treatment area - The number of units used and injections will depend on the patient and the condition being treated (we will have explained this to you in full at the consultation stage).

  5. Treatment times vary, but are usually no longer than 30 - 60 minutes.

  6. Following the treatment, we will explain any aftercare required. The products we use have little, if any downtime, so you should be able to go about your daily business as usual.

  9.  Full payment for the treatment will be taken (if not already paid in advance). 

 10. A two week follow up call will be scheduled so that we can ensure you are happy with your results. If a top is required this will be free of charge.

 11. Of course you can contact us at any time with any questions following a treatment.

Are Botox® and Other Treatments Permanent?

Our treatments are temporary, the effects lasting from 3 to 6 months on average. Treatments must be repeated at intervals in order to maintain the desired results.

Is Botox® and Bocouture Safe?

Botox® and other products we use are prescription medicines and as such do have risks including side effects that can range from minor to severe.
It is important to speak us about any potential side effects and to fully disclose your medical history prior to any treatment. More side effects and risks can be found in the Informed Medical Consent Form that we can email to you prior to consultation upon request. All that said, please rest assured that you are in the hands of an advanced healthcare professional at all times.


Will I look like I have had a non-surgical cosmetic treatment?

All of our treatments are administered well by an experienced medical professional and as such, we should ensure subtle and natural results. 
Dermal fillers can result in a more obvious visible change to the face, depending on the area treated and amount used. Make sure you discuss the results you want to achieve with us prior to treatment.
