14 Feb Why it’s unsafe to undergo facial aesthetic treatments at parties
There are a huge number of non-surgical facial treatments available these days – and here at Braintree Dental Studio, we’re pleased to be able to offer a full suite of options to our customers, including anti-wrinkle solutions, dermal fillers and thread lifts.
And while we welcome enquiries from those of you who would like to discover how these kinds of treatments can transform your look and give you newfound confidence in your appearance, we will not, under any circumstances, deliver these services at parties or events.
We have taken the decision not to offer this service for a variety of reasons. Here, we’ve delved deeper into the concept of aesthetic treatment parties and how they can in fact place their guests at risk from poor practices and undesirable results.
Why is it unsafe to have a facial aesthetic treatment at a party?
They are billed as a fun and more affordable way to get access to aesthetic treatments, and this is why private pamper sessions are proving to be so popular in Essex and throughout the UK.
So-called ‘Botox parties’ are also all the rage because they seemingly offer professional standard aesthetic treatments in the comfort of your own home, surrounded by the ones you love.
But while they seem like an innocent enough idea, these parties can in fact pose a greater risk to your health and wellbeing.
Here are three reasons why you should shun those group gatherings and choose to undergo your preferred treatment in a dedicated clinic instead.
1: You won’t benefit from a full one-to-one consultation
When our clients come to us in search of the solutions to their problems, we sit them down for a comprehensive (and totally private) consultation with a qualified member of our facial aesthetics team.
This open and honest chat provides us with the chance to gain a greater understanding of the person’s needs; it also gives the client the opportunity to gather lots of information about the treatments we’re offering and ask any immediate questions. During this time, we will make sure that the individual is fully aware of any risk factors so they can make an informed decision as to the type of treatment they want to go for.
Without having access to an initial one-to-one consultation, you’re less likely to choose a treatment that will produce the right results.
2: You might get lost in the moment
Having a treatment carried out at an event could take away the seriousness of the procedure.
It’s easy to get caught up in the moment at parties – and you may find that you’re tempted to have more work done than you originally wanted (especially if the practitioner is motivated by sales!).
Peer pressure from your friends and family may sway you into choosing something that’s not actually right for your needs, too, and this can lead to unwanted results that could have a lasting impact on your self-esteem.
3: You won’t have access to professional help if things go wrong
When you undergo a treatment at a clinic or private practice, you will be in a sterile, controlled environment. You’ll also have peace of mind that the person administrating the treatment has undergone strict training and boasts the certification needed to successfully advise, and then administer the treatment to, people like you.
If you choose to have work done at a party, you won’t have anyone to turn to if the treatment doesn’t go to plan. You could be left high and dry with bruising, unexpected drooping or, worse still, an infection.
It’s true that facial aesthetic treatments are more widespread and affordable than ever before. However, the accessibility of these procedures does not mean that they can be carried out by anyone, anywhere, without posing a threat to your looks (and, in more severe cases, your health).
Our advice? Always think twice about undergoing a treatment at a party or event. For expert advice and the best results, check in with Braintree Dental Studio and find a practitioner you know you can trust.
