Superdrug launches BOTOX and dermal filler treatments in stores
While Botox and fillers used to be reserved for the rich and famous, they’ve now become more mainstream.
To keep up with demand, new procedures and surgeries are springing up all the time.
So it should probably come to no surprise that Superdrug has now launched its own cosmetic service.
After a consultation, customers who are over the age of 25 can get injected from £99.
This is significantly cheaper than similar treatments on the market, with Harley Street charging £300 for Botox sessions.
All Superdrug procedures are carried out in a private consultation room by qualified nurses.
“We’re launching this service in response to customer demand for anti-wrinkle and skin rejuvenation treatments.
“People are telling us they want the reassurance that treatments will be given by nurse practitioners trained to the highest standards.”
While the procedures will now be more accessible than ever, Brits are urged to think carefully before braving the needle.
“It is still a medical treatment with benefits and also significant risks, and people should be aware of that.”
Consultant plastic surgeon Gerard Lambe added: “While Superdrug may be hiring medically trained nurses, it is crucial members of the public do not treat having Botox and dermal fillers as casual beauty treatments, like brow threading or waxing.
“Administering an injection of any kind is a very serious procedure and requires an experienced and qualified health professional.
“All kinds of risks can arise, from infection, to incorrectly applied needle placement over delicate facial muscles – which can lead to paralysis.”
