When considering having a botulinum toxin injection, the first thing to think about is what indication you are looking to treat, like fine lines and wrinkles, gummy smile, wide jaw, or hyperhidrosis. This can make it easier to search for clinics by reviews for specific concerns, like crow’s feet, or a cobbled chin. Selecting a Harley Street Botox clinic can be tricky, so there are a few things you should look out for.
“The non-surgical aesthetic industry really began with the use of botulinum toxin, and now it is used to treat a variety of medical conditions. Here at PHI clinic, we use it for mostly aesthetic applications, which means we can use it to treat lines of expression between the eyebrows, on the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth, and also use it to treat other conditions like sweating under the armpits.” – Dr Tapan Patel

TrustPilot is filled with written reviews that you can view by clinic, across a range of treatments.
What to look for in a practitioner
Here at PHI Clinic, Botox® is a doctor-led treatment, due to the complex understanding of facial anatomy needed to perform wrinkle relaxing injections safely to a high standard. If your practitioner is a doctor, they will be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC), which you can check easily on their website. They may also be a member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM), which aims to regulate practice within the industry, which can also be checked.
The clinic in which you have your treatment should also be registered with the Care Quality Commission, an independent regulator of health services in England.
Botulinum toxin is commonly referred to as Botox® in the media, but this is actually the brand name of the product manufactured by Allergan. We exclusively use the brand Botox® here at PHI Clinic, for its proven efficacy and safety, and our treatment prices reflect this as well as the level of skill that our practitioners have.
