How to choose your cosmetic doctor for Botox

When it comes to cosmetic treatments, very few can come close to the popularity of Botox and muscle relaxing injections. Easy, effective and much cheaper than surgical alternatives to anti-ageing, Botox remains the UK’s favourite form of wrinkle reduction.

While Botox is a relatively safe form of anti-ageing, it’s still important you choose an expert to perform your treatment. Choosing your cosmetic doctor for Botox treatment can seem confusing and daunting, but we think these three simple tips from Dr. Thevendra will help you on your journey.

Know your stuff

A good cosmetic doctor will be extremely knowledgeable on the pros (and cons!) of Botox and injectable treatments on the whole. It’s a good idea to have a firm understanding of the treatment prior to meeting a practitioner so you are aware of the benefits and restrictions of the treatment in advance. That way, when you meet your chosen cosmetic doctor, you’ll be able to get a feel for their working style and experience. Going armed with questions and some background knowledge is never a bad thing – and it allows you, at the very least, to be sure the expert is what you hoped for.


Not all cosmetic experts are created equally. If you’re considering an injectable treatment, it’s often advisable to choose a cosmetic doctor over plastic surgeons. Rather than having an overall level of expertise, a cosmetic doctor specialises in injectables and non-surgical alternatives to invasive treatments; you can be sure they understand facial anatomy, and the best ways to make the most of the treatment.

Natural results depend largely on the doctor treating you – not the injectable itself. Botox doesn’t make those celebrities you see in the papers look frozen; lazy or inexperienced administration of the injectable does. Pick someone who really loves aesthetics and isn’t just after your hard-earned money!


If you are seeking Botox treatment it is vital that you perform research before making the decision to undergo treatment. One element that patients should pay special attention to when seeking Botox treatment is the practitioner that they choose to undergo treatment with.

Due to the popularity of Botox there are now more practitioners than ever offering Botox treatment. Although this can be a benefit for patients (as it means patients have a larger array of provider to choose from) it also means patients need to be more careful with whom they entrust their treatment with. Performing research into your chosen practitioner will allow you to gain the information you need to decide if they are the right practitioner for you.


A consultation is a great way to gain this information. A consultation will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have to a cosmetic professional, gain experience of the practitioner’s working style and see the facilities that the provider offers. All of these elements should be important factors when deciding which practitioner is right for you. Head to our contact page to book a consultation for Botox treatment in Coventry.

Dr. Thevendra says: “My advice to any patient – male or female – considering Botox or any form of injectable anti-ageing is to choose a practitioner that really understands what the treatment/s can offer you. Every form of injectable is different, and the results you seek are largely dependent on the knowledge and care of your provider. Choose a Botox specialist, like a cosmetic doctor, and make sure they’re both extensively trained and highly experienced to perform facial rejuvenation treatments like Botox and dermal filler.”
