Botulinum Toxin A is a prescription only medication in the UK. Hence, it is only an option after a formal face-to-face consultation with a prescriber. In the UK, doctors, dentists, nurse prescribers and prescribing pharmacists are the only ones allowed to prescribe the drug. However, there is currently no UK regulation on who can administer these treatments and hence many allied healthcare professionals and non-medical practitioners including beauty therapists are administering patients with this treatment.
Skin Radiance Clinics stands by our view that only medically trained fully insured and aesthetically trained practitioners should administer this treatment. Although they are rare, experiencing the side effects of this treatment is possible and you need the assurance that you are in the safest hands possible if such complications were to arise.
At Skin Radiance Clinics, you only see a General Medical Council registered & experienced cosmetic doctor, who is fully trained and fully insured. Dr Raj Thethi MBChB BSc(Hons) MRCSEd takes you through the full consultation and if deemed appropriate is the only person who consents for and administers the treatment throughout.
