Choose a Registered Health Care Professional.
In the right hands treatments have a good safety record. In the wrong hands, the results are much less predictable. Ask to see the Health Care Practitioners credentials. What experience does the Practitioner have, and are they registered with a governing body? Do they know what to do in an emergency and have they got appropriate kit? Is it legal?

Check for appropriate insurance.
Specialists should have appropriate medical indemnity insurance.

Visit the clinic first.
You must feel comfortable so take advantage of Consultations. Is it calm, peaceful, clean and safe or a rented back room that is not patient centred for cosmetic treatments?

Check whether a range of facial aesthetic treatments is on offer.
Most reputable clinics offer a choice of different facial aesthetics treatments for wrinkle reduction and skincare. This because no two people are the same.

Find out whether aesthetics treatments are offered regularly.
Are they a pop-up salon or can you get get hold of the Practitioner in case of an emergency or follow up?

Book a consultation.
Reputable facial aesthetic clinics encourage you to book a consultation. If the clinic seems to be too focused on ‘selling’, don’t be afraid to walk away.

Ask about the clinic’s follow-up service.
Some treatments have immediate effects while others may take some weeks before you see the full effect. A good specialist will usually offer you a follow-up appointment. Does the Practitioner know how to deal with side effects or complications themselves?

Cheapest is not always best.
It’s important to avoid selecting a specialist purely on price. In doing so you may find yourself in the hands of an inexperienced, unqualified or uninsured practitioner. Be wary of special offers.

Ask for proof.
Do you have friends who can recommend a facial aesthetics clinic? Do they have reviews or offer before and after pictures?

Know what to expect.
A good specialist will give you information about your post-treatment care and be happy to explain how a treatment works in more detail.
