Botox - Face the Facts

Botox treatments are becoming more and more popular as people attempt to hold back the ravages of time and, in some cases, try to emulate their favourite actors and pop stars. However, not everyone fully considers the risks involved. After all, the active ingredient in Botox treatments is botulinum, a highly potent neurotoxin that should be handled with extreme caution.

Botox - Big business with big risks

And that’s not the only risk. The number of people that suffer from poor treatments or botched procedures is on the increase too. Hardly surprising when you consider that, in 2010, over 1,000,000 people in the UK had Botox treatment. Clearly, it’s a huge market with attractive profits for those selling the treatments. Unfortunately, this has resulted in unqualified individuals performing Botox procedures on the cheap, when clearly, cosmetic surgery should only be carried out by trained and experienced professionals.

Botox - Minimise the risks

There are things you can do to reduce your chances of having a bad experience. Firstly, be aware of all the risks before you decide on treatments and always make sure your practitioner is appropriately qualified with a successful track record of carrying out the procedure. If possible, get a recommendation from someone who’s had a successful treatment.

Avoid Botox parties where friends get together to have treatments done. Having a Botox treatment is a highly personal affair and not a decision to be taken lightly. A quick search of the Internet is all you need to do to see what can go wrong. In some cases, side effects such as headaches, facial paralysis and skin complaints may not become apparent until some time after the treatment.

Should the worst should happen.

If you do choose to go ahead with treatment and you’re not happy with the results and/or the treatment you’ve received, then there are options to claim for compensation.

Making a successful claim means proving that your symptoms were caused by the treatment, so it’s important you see a doctor and get legal advice as soon as possible. Usually, compensation won’t only cover the cost of correcting the treatment but will also include a payout for loss of earnings and any expenses associated with remedial treatment. Start by filling out the form here and someone will be in touch to talk you through the procedure.
