I have had a shit year and have aged about 10 years. I need botox. I am in London. Any recommendations, please?

Have you been to all these people yourself? How can you tell a good botox-er, then? I am determined but very nervous grin

Thanks, btw!

Does anyone know a good botoxer (love this word!) around the Midlands area?

Hi Tanya
Yes, I have been to all of them myself! I used word of mouth recs, my "gut feeling" during the consultation process and clinical experience of the practitioner to inform my decision. Never had a bad result.

A good practitioner is honest about the risks/limitations, and should respect what you want-for example, Dr St John is a very attractive blonde-I would guess to be in her mid forties-she favours a more "obvious" result as can be seen by her own face-so we spoke about balance-I wanted to see improvement, but not look frozen like Nicole Kidman and she got that!
