How To Know If You Are A Candidate For Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Amazing Faces will provide a detailed treatment plan and consultation to talk you through the treatment options available. Please be aware of the following information:
Undergoing any aesthetic procedure can be exciting and also a daunting process. Here at Amazing Faces, we aim to put our clients at ease and are happy to provide consultations free of charge. Please do not hesitate to contact us regarding any queries you have.
You may have heard of the term ‘remote prescribing’ in relation to botox, this means that the client did not need to be seen by the prescriber. However, under the new legislation Botox & other injectables can only be prescribed by doctors and independent prescribers. As of July 2012 REMOTE PRESCRIBING by email, phone and video links by doctors and independent prescribers was banned by the GMC (General Medical Council). Which means every patient must undertake a face to face consultation with the prescribing doctor or independent prescriber. This will ensure all prescribers will fully understand the patients medical history and reason for wanting the treatment.
Victoria is a fully qualified Nurse (RGN) with fifteen years experience in the nursing field. Victoria has undertaken botox & dermal filler training and is fully insured with Hamilton Fraser. If a client is seen by Victoria for anti-wrinkle injections, they will also be seen by an independent prescriber organised by Amazing Faces Aesthetics.
Dermal fillers do not require an independent prescriber. Please ask if you have any queries, Victoria will be happy to speak with you.

Botox Cosmetic is not expected to travel far enough through the body to affect a fetus or breastfeeding infant. However, for ethical reasons, clinical studies have not been done on expectant or new mothers, so nobody knows for sure.
Therefore, the manufacturers advise that you should not have Botox injections if you are planning or trying to conceive a child, are pregnant, are planning to breastfeed or are currently breastfeeding. It’s better to be safe, and you can always have Botox later on.
