Before you host or attend a mobile beauty party where a doctor or nurse offers botox, dermal fillers, etc. to a group of people at an affordable price, here are some things you should consider before having a wrinkle-smoothing session at a mobile party. After all, getting all the info before the injection can give you what you want: a wrinkle- and worry-free refreshed look.
Are they offering the right treatment for you? There are so many different types of dermal fillers and wrinkle-smoothing treatments out there, so it’s hard to know if the person is recommending the right one for you. This is why it’s not only important to see if the person is qualified, but also why you should go to a registered professional clinic because they offer informative initial consultations so you can compare treatments, do some research and make a decision later, not on the spot.
Find out if a doctor, nurse, dentist, etc. is offering the treatment and if they have the right qualifications. Most of these mobile beauty parties are being offered by nurses and dentists nowadays, who will use dermal fillers and other wrinkle-smoothing treatments. So, you have to check to see if the nurse is a member of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses and the Nursing & Midwifery Council. If so, the nurse is accountable to both the association’s and the council’s professional code of practice. If it’s a dentist, you have to find out if they are a member of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Remember, all doctors and dermatologists must be registered with the General Medical Council. At a professional clinic, qualifications and certifications would and should be clearly visible, though you should check before going in for a consultation.
How many treatments have they done and what level are they at? It can take well over 300 smoothing treatments to be truly competent in injecting dermal fillers, botox, etc. So you are going to have to ask for examples of their previous work using dermal fillers, botox, etc., if they offer follow-up consultations and for that all-important insurance cover. A registered clinic with qualified professionals will provide all of this.
Is there going to be a first aider present? There should always be a qualified person who specialises in first aid in case something goes wrong with the dermal fillers, etc. Again, a professional clinic will and should have one present.
If something does go wrong with the treatment(s), are you legally liable because you hosted the wrinkle-smoothing party? Does the place have to be inspected for health and safety prior to the party? Make sure you ask the provider of the mobile beauty party before booking or spending any money. These are just two more reasons why you should get your dermal fillers, botox and other non-surgical treatments done at a registered, certified professional clinic.
