dermal fillers

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on dermal fillers side effects.

What are the possible side effects from using Dermal Fillers?
There are a number of dermal fillers available on the market and each has its own possible side effects. It is very rare to have any side effect however each will depend on the type of dermal filler you use and the length of time one is exposed to the filler.
Just like any product or goods bought, always use a trusted, reputable and skilled Doctor in this field, who purchases the dermal filler for a reputable and trusted manufacturer whom produce excellent quality products.
The dermal filler treatment is not very painful however this also depends on your own personal pain threshold. If you have any concerns or feel anxious please discuss this with your doctor prior to the treatment taking place. The most common side effects of using dermal filler are bruising, bleeding, and redness around the injected area. Other rare side effects that have been recorded are skin discolouration, viral infection, bacterial infection and skin ulceration in the injected area.
It is important to remember that these side effects are expected soon after the dermal filler treatment, and will disappear within a period of two to three days. If any of the above side effects persist or worsen please seek medical attention to make sure everything is normal and there are no problems.
There have been occasions, very few when side effects have showed up much later after the filler has been used. This can come in the form of lumps under the skin.
It is extremely rare to experience any side effects from dermal fillers

Men and Anti-Wrinkle Injections
We all know more and more men are looking after themselves, going to the gym, juicing and eating healthier foods. In the 1990’s men were starting to use moisturiser, in the noughties it was a small amount of guyliner, and today the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world for men is Botox or Brotox.
What types of men are getting Botox treatment?
Many of the men that are getting Botox treatment come from all walks of life, different backgrounds, religion, ages and career. Many are builders, doctors, bankers, entrepreneurs and those jobs in-between. At the moment there is no specific trend in terms of who is having the Botox injections.
How is Botox treatments different for men?
Men and women’s faces are very different, the biggest difference being that men have a less rounded face and men’s cheeks are not as full. Men’s eyebrows are lower and more flat. To avoid feminizing male features please find a reputable, professional and experienced doctor within this field.
In the United Kingdom the most popular cosmetic treatment today is Botox or Brotox, it had an estimated 50,000 treatments performed on men last year.
Why are men opting for Botox Injections?
There are a number of reasons why men are turning to Botox treatments. Many men are in sales or marketing roles and want to look their best when meeting clients, sourcing deal and want to be in par with their younger work force. Others have mentioned that the increase in divorce rate has meant men want to look refresher, healthier and hold onto that youthful look.

botox referrals

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on getting botox referrals.

Your clinic and staff need to be on brand – botox patients are cosmetically orientated and therefore like visually attractive clinics/designs, etc
Your botox clinic and staff need to create the “wow factor” throughout the whole customer journey for your botox clients. Your clients need to have trust and faith in all you do and feel you create value for the investments they make in your clinic.
Referrals can be generated by you as the clinician, your team members especially your reception team, via friends, family and your existing patients.
This can be done after you see a patient in your botox clinic, after you speak to a patient over the phone, or via marketing and
Protocol to capture the referral information is necessary and ideally you would like to utilise and benefit from all the methods.
There are many types of referral marketing methods out in the professional world, but how do you know which method to focus on? – Direct referral marketing? – Internal referral marketing? – External referral marketing? – Internet referral marketing?
Having a referral system set up can get you botox referrals that will generate business to your company.
Setting up a working, credible referral system isn’t the easiest mission to arrange, BUT remember you have the opportunity to capitalise on referral marketing.
