Botox®, anti-wrinkle injections, Botulinum Toxin – there are so many names for this treatment that we can’t mention them all. However, if you are a lover of this amazing injectable anti-ageing treatment, you’ll know it can erase dynamic wrinkles and expression lines within a couple of days and the results can last for months. In Wanstead, in the East London borough of Redbridge, Dr Anita Dhunna operates a fully-compliant aesthetic clinic where she administers hundreds of Botox® treatments every year. In the UK alone, there are thousands upon thousands of Botox® practitioners, some which are medically-qualified and others who (worryingly) are not.
So how do you choose a safe Botox® treatment in Wanstead?
Botox® is a naturally-occurring toxin, which comes from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. In non-medical hands it can be extremely dangerous, so it’s important that anyone you choose to administer your Botox® injections is a fully-qualified medical professional such as a dentist, doctor, plastic surgeon or registered, prescribing nurse.
Dr Anita Beaumont Dhunna is a qualified dentist has been practicing aesthetic medicine since 2007 and has trained with some of the world’s most respected international injectors, including her brother, renowned leading Harley Street cosmetic doctor, Dr Dan Dhunna. Dr Anita Dhunna not only boasts the necessary qualifications and skills to be a cosmetic practitioner in Botox® and other injectables, but has a natural flair for artistry and a passion for creating balance, symmetry and aesthetic beauty of both the male and female human face. Dr Anita Dhunna has a duty of care to protect and ‘do no harm’ when it comes to recommending and offering non-surgical aesthetic treatments, ensuring your absolute safety at all times.
Therefore, when you contact Dr Anita Dhunna for a Botox® treatment, you will be asked to attend an initial consultation and facial assessment. This meeting is vital for both you and the doctor to ascertain if Botox® is not only going to benefit your individual facial requirements, but it will be safe for you to have the treatment. During this initial meeting, you will be able to ask any questions you might have about your Botox® treatment and the doctor will check your medical history for any possible contraindications or medical reasons as to why a Botox® treatment may not be suitable.
The meeting should last no longer than around 45 minutes and in this time, the doctor will examine your face and get to know you as a person, so she can understand what is concerning you about your facial features. It might be that Botox® may not address a particular feature. In which case, the doctor can recommend alternative facial treatments which might suit you better. However, if Botox® is indeed chosen to address your facial concerns, you will be able to book your appointment for this procedure, at the end of your consultation.
Making sure that you know your practitioner is not only medically-qualified, highly- trained in Botox® treatments and that they have had many years’ experience but that your treatment is undergone in a regulated clinical environment are key criteria for your safety and efficacy of treatment. From her Wanstead clinic, Dr Anita Dhunna offers a myriad of treatments which include not only wrinkle-smoothing injections using Botox® but dermal fillers for temples, lips, cheeks, hand rejuvenation, jawline and chin augmentation, tear trough revitalisation and brow lifting; Profhilo® hyaluronic skin remodelling, medical microneedling (Dermapen), PDO thread lifting and fat dissolving injections, so you can be confident that whatever your facial or body concern, Dr Anita will have either one or more solutions for your individual and unique requirements.
Accept no imitations when it comes to injectable cosmetic treatments. Choose your Botox® doctor wisely, and the results will speak for themselves, beautifully.
