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.
  3. Find out about the level of experience of the practitioner, Snowberry Lane Clinic is in it’s sixteenth year of practice, our Directors Ann and Rupert have the highest level of experience, they have selected and trained a team of like-minded professionals, whom they trust to deliver the same standard of treatment as themselves.
