Skin Medical discusses the implications of the new rules that severely restricts where and when patients can have their Botox.
As of 23rd July 2012 you will need a prescription from a doctor or non medical prescribing nurse to have your Botox. This will typically impact upon those patients who currently get their Botox from a beauty salon or hairdresser as many of these mobile practitioners cannot prescribe or obtain Botox.
The best solution is to seek a reputable clinic which is registered with the Care Quality Commission such as Skin Medical with convenient city centre locations in Manchester and Leeds. At our clinics we employ doctors and non medical prescribing nurse practitioners qualified in consulting, prescribing and administering botox for:
• Anti-ageing fine lines and wrinkles around eyes (crow’s feet), frown lines and forehead.
• Masseter injections to combat for teeth grinding and provide jaw reshaping
• Hyperhidrosis, being underarm sweating
• Headache and migraine relief to the forehead.
