We all know the incredible benefits of anti-wrinkle injections - whether that’s for smoothing forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, or those pesky frown lines (11s). You can even get a Botox eyebrow lift or have injections of the toxin to help with a whole variety of medical issues including migraine and excessive sweating! But I’m guessing you’re here because you’ve been frantically Googling “Botox near me”. The problem with that is there are sooooo many results to sift through and you don’t really know if the clinics you find are trustworthy, insured, employ medically qualified practitioners and use good Botox. So, to help make your Botox search easier, this is how to find a safe Botox practitioner near you.
Botox Near Me: Finding the Best Anti-wrinkle Injector in Your Area
How do I find good people providing Botox where I live?
The truth is, if you’re just looking on a search engine, you can’t really guarantee that the listings that pop up are as safe as you want them to be. For example, did you know that a lot of clinics are run by non medics such as beauticians? The problem here is that, while they may have done a short training course (sometimes they haven’t at all), they are actually not able to prescribe Botox injections, which means they need a qualified prescriber to do that for them. It also means that they are less likely to know what to do if something goes wrong, and they have absolutely no consequences to face if complications do occur.
Why is it important my Botox practitioner is medically qualified?
At Glowday, we believe that anyone offering treatments for lines and wrinkles, fillers or any other non-surgical treatment like this should be performed by a medically qualified practitioner such as a doctor, nurse, dentist or prescribing pharmacist. This is because they have a far deeper understanding of facial anatomy and they are bound to their code of ethics. So on the off chance that something did go wrong (chances are minimised with a medic, but because of the nature of this type of treatment, there are always risks), they would know what to do and wouldn’t just leave you to fend for yourself. And trust us when we say we have heard countless stories of non medics doing just that. Scary!
How can I use Glowday to help me find a practitioner?
To help make the search for a safe, adequately trained and ethically sound practitioner easier, Glowday has an amazing booking tool. All you have to do is head to our home page, type the treatment you want into the search bar (in this case anti-wrinkle treatment), select your location and we’ll serve up results for practitioners offering Botox treatments near you. It couldn’t be easier! You can even search for a specific practitioner or clinic if you know the name of one and want to check them out. And on each practitioner profile, you’ll be able to read about that expert in their bio, including a bit about their qualifications, interests and how they can help you. We also then provide you with their treatment menu so you can see their Botox costs and their availability.
Every single practitioner on Glowday has been verified by us to make sure they are a medic, and we check this on a regular basis so if anyone ever happens to get struck off, they are removed from our system.
What about Botox before and afters and reviews?
We totally get that when you’re searching for a new clinic or practitioner, you want to see their antiaging treatments before and afters to make sure you like that particular practitioner’s results before booking in with them. That’s why we encourage our listed practitioners to include them on their profiles. For example, here’s a brilliant Botox before and after by the fantastic Charine Patel of Bisou Clinics.
When it comes to Botox reviews, all Glowday reviews are collected by us - not the practitioner - after a client’s treatment with that expert. So you can be sure that each and every one is a real, verified review that hasn’t just been made up to make the clinic look good. You’d be surprised at how many reviews you find online that are fake!!

Can it go wrong?
Every treatment (and don't forget this is really a medical procedure) can go wrong: few things in life are risk free. Most common risks are bruising and swelling, and Ptsois is a more serious possible complication - you don't want a droopy eye! But if you're in the right hands it is a low-risk treatment and it's unlikely anything bad will happen. You just need to make sure you see someone who is medically-qualified, well trained and knows how to handle complications. That's why searching on Google might not be the best way to find someone near you and you should use a resource like Glowday!
