Only the hyperhidrosis treatment is a fixed amount at £350. I don't charge per zone/area simply because the price structure used by other practitioners often encourage clients to have more Botox™ than they need. Plus its not advantageous for the client. I charge by the amount used and it goes up incrementally from £175 up to £375 for facial work.
Simply put because the quality and drive for excellence is an extension of my work as a Consultant. I want this to be standard setting treatment. I practice in a surgery, in a surgical suite and use a pharmacy team to monitor & audit the storage of my product. No one else on island has their Botox storage audited twice a day. (see the about section)
When I first started I charged a flat fee of £175, regardless. This was to offset the cost of advertising, the price alone was the advert.
Now I charge a bit more, because I believe that the quality of the treatment justifies the cost. I am still in the middle of the price range of Botox® providers in Jersey but if you pay peanuts don't be surprised if you get poor results and need to go back & back to the practitioner.
Absolutely not. It's against the General Medical Council code of ethics for aesthetic medicine.
Any Practitioner that offers deals or QuidsIn deals needs to be avoided like the plague, (or COVID. 😂)
I get contacted frequently about this, most of it is failure on the part of the practitioner because I don't get these issues and I just follow the letter of the law. The only logical explanations are either the Botox™ was stored at the wrong temperature (denaturing it) , it was diluted from powder with too much water (over diluting it) or not sufficient was injected.
Botox antibodies can develop but these are seen in patients that receive vast amounts for muscle spasticity and not in aesthetic practice.

With the exception for Dr Curran at the ASC, who I think has been the trailblazer of aesthetic medicine in Jersey, its is illegal if a doctor flies in & administers Botox™ and they're not on the Medical Practitioners register for Jersey (as well as the GMC register). Nurses cannot fly in and administer Botox™, that is illegal as most nurses in Jersey still need a doctor to prescribe Botox™.
What you need to be mindful of is what happens if something goes wrong? Does your practitioner have links to medical support on island when they are not there? If your practitioner is flying in and out and not on the practitioners register, then they will not be insured. I am covered by the Medical Protection Society. I am registered with the GMC and the Jersey Medical Practitioners Register.
I live & work in Jersey. My reputation is here.
Excellent but they can only administer their chosen Botulinum Toxin to the letter of the therapeutic indication. Azzalure™ only has a license for cosmetic treatment of Crows feet and the Glabella. Nowhere else, including forehead lines. If they administer Botox™ or Bocouture™ then they can treat Forehead, Glabellar and Crows Feet but nowhere else.
However a doctor is allowed to prescribe off-license. In fact until recently botulinum toxin type A only had a license for Glabellar treatment if it caused psychological negativity for the patient.
Now this is a tricky one. Everyone is different. I have clients who attend with their sisters, cousins, mother-daughters, father daughters for treatment and everyone responds in different ways. It's not necessarily down to genetics but also muscle definition in the face, desired look, some people are exceptionally facially very animated and you don't want to be told this, but Botox™ is not an exact science, if it was everyone would be administering it. The effects are not instant they take 2 weeks to fully kick in and I offer an inclusive appointment at 2 or 3 weeks from treatment if any extra treatment is required (free).
That being said 4 months is a reasonable point for cosmetic advantage from Botox. However a lot of my clients get 9 months from treatment and I have clients coming from other practitioners who state my treatment lasts longer.
I am trained in dermal fillers, but have made the professional decision not to provide this service. I practice botulinum toxin based aesthetic medicine to relax from the hustle & bustle of the Emergency Room. Fillers are painful, filler stretches the skin, fillers can block blood vessels, fillers are prone to very high severity complications including allergy and infection. I do not want that for my clients. I am merely tweaking the beauty of my clients, not changing the look of my clients.
All around you, but you would never know.
Jersey is a small place, and I pride myself on discretion. No one knows you're coming to get aesthetic treatment when you attend my practice. There are some rules around "before and after" images that sit on a fine line between overly promoting a prescription only medication (POM).
However a majority of my clinics are repeat work which suggests a positive reception to my work.
Yes. I have sufficient to maintain movement and enough to annoy my fellow 44 year old friends. I have very low doses that allow for very subtle reduction but otherwise most clients wouldn't want such persistent movement.
I also felt it was important to experience what my clients experience. I only have it on my glabellar, the bit between the eyes. My forehead and crows feet are nature's own.
