botox consent process

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares a typical consent from you would expect to read and sign before your botox injections.


This treatment uses a diluted form of botulinum toxin type A. It is administered by injection at specific points on the face. The botox treatment gradually takes effect over a week to ten days. After two or three weeks it will be working fully. The effect of the botox treatment lasts on average, for three to four months but can last for up to six months in some people. This treatment is for an improvement not perfection. As static wrinkles due to skin thinning will not be improved by botulinum toxin, other types of treatment may be required. Each treatment will be charged for individually, according to the areas treated.


The areas that we are proposing to treat are:



Risks and side effects


Allergies and side effects to Botox®/Vistabel®/Dysport® treatment are extremely rare. The results of treatment cannot be guaranteed. Most people find that the injections cause only mild discomfort. Immediately after the treatment, there may be mild swelling, which usually disappears after 30 mins. Afterwards, the injection site can be slightly red for about one hour. In a small number of cases a bruise may occur. Rare side effects include: headache, nausea and flu-like symptoms. In very rare cases patients may also develop antibodies or allergies to the toxin, experience double-vision and watering eyes.


If you are pregnant or a nursing mother or sufferer from neuromuscular diseases such as Bells palsy or myasthenia gravis, treatment is not recommended.


For botox treatment of the upper face, such as frown and forehead, there is a very low risk of brow ptosis (drooping of the eyebrow) or eyelid ptosis (drooping of the eyelid), which completely reverses with time.


For botox treatment in the lower areas of the face, as the treatment involves the temporary relaxation of the muscles, your facial movements will change and feel different. For example, with treatment of muscles relating to the lips there is a strong likelihood that control of your lips will feel different, i.e. you may be unable or find it harder to drink from a straw, to whistle, find it difficult applying lipstick in your usual way or you may need to adjust the way to drink from a glass as you will be unable to tense your treated lip to the same extent as you could before treatment. It can take some time to get used to a new sensation but the effect will reverse over time and you will return to your normal movement.

botox -how to maximise its effects

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog talks about how you can maximise the effects of botox after the initial treatment.


How to prolong the life of your botox treatment…


The following information will help reduce the triggers that can cause premature ageing and in combination with botox will keep you wrinkle free.


Always wear a sun protection factor, the sun breaks down the supportive structure of the skin, it causes pigmentation and fine lines. Use a minimum factor 15 (SPF) daily even in the winter and cloudy days. The UV rays will still affect the skin and cause premature ageing. The effects of the botox may be shortened.


Protect against free radical damage. Free radicals attack your collagen and elastin fibres that make up the structure of the skin. They around us everyday a daily dose of vitamins and antioxidant supplement will minimise this damage and enhance the effects of botox.


Avoid caffeine, alcohol and smoking, these all dehydrate the skin and increase the free radical attacks.


Try to relax as much as possible, stress will break down the treatment quicker as your muscles will be tense and fighting against the Botox. Take time to treat your self.

botox and regulation

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares information from the Daily Mail about the governments latest inaction against regulating the Botox industry.


Cosmetic cowboys with no medical training will remain free to inject women with ‘backstreet Botox’ because health Ministers have bowed to pressure to leave the industry largely unregulated.


The Mail on Sunday has learnt that the Government is to reject a crucial recommendation in a hard-hitting review of the booming sector, to the outrage of leading doctors.


This newspaper has been campaigning since March for far tougher regulation of the botox industry. The Mail on Sunday has called for measures including a minimum standard for surgeons; proper regulation for all those practising cosmetic surgery; and an end to the hard-sell tactics that see special offers and glossy advertising undermine the seriousness of the procedures involved.


But doctors and campaigners believe people’s health could be put seriously at risk.


When the review was published in April, Health Minister Dr Dan Poulter said he agreed entirely with the principles behind its recommendations. A key proposal was the creation of a compulsory register for everyone carrying out cosmetic treatments – including Botox injections, use of wrinkle-smoothing dermal fillers, and laser hair-removal treatments.


A crackdown on so-called ‘backstreet Botox’ is to be shelved over fears that it could harm the economy


At the moment these can be carried out by anyone – sometimes with horrifying results.


But this newspaper has been told that the Department for Business has insisted that any register should be voluntary – meaning ‘cosmetic cowboys’ will be able to operate as normal.


‘Non-surgical cosmetic interventions’ such as botox injections account for three-quarters of the value of the cosmetics industry and the vast majority of growth in the sector, which will be worth £3.6 billion by 2015 having grown five-fold in a decade.


NHS medical director Professor Sir Bruce Keogh was asked to lead the cosmetics review in the wake of the PIP breast implants scandal, which led to thousands of British women having them taken out.


Last night Sir Bruce said he would be dismayed if the Government decided against firm regulation. And Rajiv Grover, president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic  Surgeons, said a mandatory register was essential.

Marcelle King, 58, is one of those who has suffered from ‘backstreet Botox’. She ended up in casualty after being injected with what she believes was fake Botox by a man purporting to be a plastic surgeon. The ‘treatment’ took place in a friend’s kitchen.


Critics claim the cosmetics.botox industry has determinedly  lobbied Ministers to stop short of a mandatory register.
