Choosing a doctor for a cosmetic procedure requires more research and due diligence than choosing a hairdresser or where to get your next manicure done. Aesthetic treatments can be expensive, but this definitely isn’t an area where you want to skimp on your budget. While invasive cosmetic surgery is a regulated industry in the UK, the rules around who can carry out procedures such as injections of Botox and fillers are much looser.
Whether you’re opting for a skin treatment like microdermabrasion, or you’re hoping for a Kylie Jenner pout, London’s cosmetic clinics offer some of the world’s best cosmetic doctors, so you can be assured you’ll be in safe hands.
