Now that Botox and Fillers are becoming more readily available, healthcare professionals are calling for more stringent checks to ensure the safety of potential clients, read the original article here.

Safeguarding our clients is at the heart of what we do at Snowberry Lane Clinic, which is why we are registered with the Care Quality Commission an independent governing body who set standards of care that protect clients of medical cosmetic treatments. We are proud to work with this organisation to make sure the level of care we deliver ensures that everyone who visits Snowberry Lane is treated with dignity and respect, not pressured into any treatments, and are given the quality of care that every person deserves.

It is vital that when you seek cosmetic treatment that you ensure you are in safe hands. So we want to give you some top tips to help you choose the right cosmetic practice for you:

  1. Using the Care Quality Commision to check establishments credentials is a great place to start: https://www.cqc.org.uk. Practices that are registered with the CQC have to meet certain standards of care, which is very reassuring to clients.
  2. Enquire about the background of the practitioners. All of the practitioners at Snowberry Lane Clinic who carry out Botox and Filler procedures are registered medical professionals – experienced Doctors and Nurses.

How to get the most out of your consultation

If you’re thinking about visiting a cosmetic clinic for a consultation here are some important things to consider and certain questions you can ask when you make a booking and during your consultation, to ensure you’re getting the most out of your appointment.

Questions to ask before booking your consultation:

1. Is there a consultation fee?

Lots of clinics operate using different policies, some offering free consultations and others opting to charge. At Snowberry Lane Clinic, we charge a £30 holding fee for your first consultation. This means that the cost is refunded from your first treatment if you choose to go ahead.

2. Will the person I see during the consultation also carry out the treatment?

It’s good to know that the person you have your initial consultation will also carry out your treatment. Cosmetic surgeries are very personal and this ensures you have the opportunity to meet the practitioner and make an informed decision if you’d be comfortable with them treating you.

3. What is the level of experience of the Practitioner?

It’s always reassuring to hear that the person treating you has a wealth of experience, so a great question to ask when approaching clinics for a potential consultation. Snowberry Lane Clinic has been established for over 13 years now and our practitioners have experience over and above these years.

Questions to ask during your consultation:

1. What is the cost of the treatment?

This is something that you might be able to get a guide to over the phone before you go in for a consultation. However many treatments are unique to each individual so the price would be determined during the consultation after the practitioner has seen the area that needs treating and spoken to you about what your looking to achieve.

2. What is the aftercare for the treatment?

One of the best ways to understand the impact of a cosmetic treatment is to go through the aftercare needed for the procedure. This will tell you the possible side-effects, including what to expect and anything you might not be able to do following your treatment.
