SkinViva’s Dr Felicity explains the potential risks and side-effects that patients should be made aware of before having BOTOX treatment.
This is something that should be explained before any treatment takes place, as Dr Felicity explains:
“…it’s not something we shy away from. We go through consent with you because we want you to feel as though you’ve got all the knowledge you need available to you so that you can make a really, really good decision for you”
Dr Felicity lists the main potential issues to be aware of with BOTOX treatment, including:
Dr Felicity also outlines areas for potential concern about results, things that may occur due to the way BOTOX works, by relaxing muscles:
Felicity reassures patients:
“Because we’re trained the way we are, we put it in places that really should avoid that; but none of these things are permanent. So it’s unlikely to happen; if it did happen, please be reassured that it isn’t a permanent feature. After a few weeks it would feel an awful lot better.”
“If you had a dry eye we can do things like give you eye drops, just to make things feel a bit more comfortable.”
“We’re all trained, we’re also trainers in treatments, so again you should be in really good hands coming to get your treatment done with us.
“We look at where the muscles are moving, treat accordingly and we treat your muscles, we don’t give everybody the same treatment plan – every face is different and also your wants and needs are different as well.
“When you come for your consultation, we’ll go through all of the risks and side effects with you again, just to make sure you’re 100% happy with your choices.”
“The results of your BOTOX will start to kick in after about 2 days, but it’s 2 weeks before it reaches its maximum potential, so we will give you a text anyway just to check everything is alright. At that 2 week point, if you have any further concerns then do feel free to book in a follow-up with any of our doctors [or dentists] and we’ll book that for you it’s really quick, really simple and our customer service team would be more than happy to help you with that”

BOTOX® is the world’s most popular wrinkle relaxing injection, thanks largely to its proven efficacy in tackling the signs of ageing. BOTOX® relaxes the fine dynamic facial muscles which cause lines and wrinkles allowing the skin to drape more smoothly and with a noticeable and rejuvenating reduction in lines.
Common treatment areas include the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet.
SkinViva’s Doctors & Dentists offer a range of non-surgical treatments with advanced use of BOTOX® and fillers.
Their team of clinicians offer free consultations at their main clinic in Manchester and also work closely with partner locations across the North West. Clinics are held at salons and centres in Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire, Manchester, Stockport and Bury.
A consultation is always required prior to any cosmetic treatment and this is arranged with an experienced aesthetic clinician. The same individual would carry out treatment and this can normally be done at the same appointment if required.
