Heart London: Should you go to a doctor for BOTOX®?
Heart London Magazine looks into popular BOTOX® anti-wrinkle injections, with a review of treatment with Dr Ross Perry at Cosmedics Skin Clinics based on Harley Street.
As explained in the feature, many people can administer BOTOX® – it doesn’t have to be a doctor. However, the editor notes:
“…seeing some of the disasters that can happen from one raised eyebrow to a face that looks completely frozen. It certainly makes you wonder can you go to anyone for your BOTOX® or should it be a doctor?”
“As the results started to show I got lots of people saying I looked fresh, not a frozen forehead in site. I was really pleased with the results and I know you will be too.
“You are in safe hands with this doctor who makes you feel even more relaxed by having an assistant there with him.
“Dr. Ross was a surgeon before becoming an aesthetics doctor and is the voice of reason, as he has even been known to turn people away if he felt they were asking for too much or something that wouldn’t suit them.
“Going to a doctor you know you are in good hands, I certainly don’t want to play Russian roulette with my face and I am sure you don’t either.
“If you want results that look totally naturally we would fully recommend going to see Doctor Ross.”
Before having treatment, the writer met with Dr Ross Perry and asked him about BOTOX® injections as well as other treatments designed to reduce the appearance of ageing lines and wrinkles. Dr Perry explained the anti-ageing options available and the difference between BOTOX® and dermal fillers:
“Small amounts of BOTOX® placed around the eyes and frown area will help soften lines and give a more youthful appearance.
“Fillers used well can give a natural lift and fullness that makes you look fresher and younger by replacement of the lost collagen. Areas which see huge improvement include mouth and lip lines, nose to mouth lines, cheeks and also help target deeper creases and wrinkles. Cosmedics only use long lasting natural fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm for facial injections that dissolve slowly over time and have an outstanding safety record.
“All injections are carried out by accredited doctors. Wrinkle fillers for the face are ideal for anyone who wants to look fresher and younger without the need for surgery.
“There are also treatments such as the Soprano laser skin tightening helps to boost collagen for a natural anti-ageing result and is also very effective on the décolletage as well as the face and helps even out pigmentation which is a tell tale sign of ageing.”
