    Mine is done privately by a local GP. I only have the frown lines done and it costs me £175 but that does include a second appointment and "top up" two weeks later if the effects are not strong enough. This does mean that the degree of paralysis can be fine tuned to avoid that dreadful frozen look. She also puts a couple of shots above the eyebrows to give the effect of an eyelift.


    First treatment only lasted 3 months but the second 5 months and the interval continues to increase :j

    Figures from the indemnity insurers are showing that dentists are being claimed against less than Drs!!

    But we do do an awful lot more head & neck anatomy in our training than Drs
    .

    Dear Toothsmith, if you look at my original post I said dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Not any doctor, nurse or dentist off the street.

    I'll maintain my original point: it is best to get a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to do this kind of work.

    Best wishes

    And I'd agree!!

    Just scoring a point!! :D
    How to find a dentist.
    1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
    2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
    3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
    4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.

    Hi
    A new company has launched called Hylagen.com. They are very professional and offer Botox 1 area for £99. 2 areas for £139 and 3 areas for £159. Its a new concept as they use an online booking system and its so easy to use. I had my Botox done with them last friday and have to say they are very honest and caring in their work. Check them out.:j

    I would FAR rather use Botox twice a year which is extremely well tested for cosmetic use as well as for medical use then use the high tech creams and lotions now available. Many of these are based on nano technology which is far from proven safe and various chemicals that have NOT been fully tested to the same standards.

    Oh and Botox actually works :rotfl:
