Facial aesthetics which includes the use of botulinum toxin treatment (such as Botox and Azzalure) and Hyaluronic Acid non-surgical fillers (such as Restylane) is becoming common place now. But did you know that due to there being no proper regulation on the use of the products there has been a steep rise in complaints due to botched treatment?
72% of all complaints in 2017 were from patients who found a practitioner on social media and 83% of procedures were administered by non-medics. The Department of Health is launching a campaign this month to raise awareness about how essential it is to seek professional advice about fillers and botulinum toxin treatment. BBC Radio 1 has already announced this campaign and the government want people who are looking for practitioners to be reputable and qualified.
At Time Dental we are a regulated clinic which meets all the standards by the CQC (Care Quality Commission). Our Facial Aesthetics clinician, Dr Rashid, has been trained by the leading practitioners at the forefront of facial aesthetics. Dr Rashid has been providing this treatment for over 11 years and regularly attends courses to stay up to date with the latest treatment techniques. As a dental and facial practitioner he has in-depth facial anatomy knowledge which is crucial for safe and successful treatment. Wouldn’t you want your clinician to know the intricate details of the nerve and blood supplies to your face before having any injections placed?
This type of treatment is carried out with injections often by a cannula which minimises bruising and swelling. This technique is an area that Dr Rashid is extremely skilled at as he gives pain-free injections everyday.
