Hello! You've found our website! You're obviously interested in some kind of non-surgical aesthetics treatment and you've ended up looking here, which is absolutely the right place to be. But if you're not sure what Glowday is, how we work and why you should use us and trust us, then this tells you everything you need to know.
What Is Glowday?
What is Glowday?
Okay, so the elevator pitch: Glowday is your one-stop shop to find and book safe non-surgical aesthetic treatments.
There we go, that's all you need to know!
You want more? Alright then...
How does it work?
Glowday is a bit like a comparison site.
You pop in the treatment that you're keen on (or if you're not sure you can enter 'consultation') such a lip filler, or antiaging injections and then your location (you can use postcode or town) into our search box on our homepage.
We then show you a glorious list of practitioners and clinics who are close to you. What's more, they're all medical professionals who you can trust with your face!
So quick and easy and lots of beautiful clinics at your fingertips on Glowday!
How do I know who is the best?
We list practitioners based on their reviews. We figure you want to go to a clinic that is most highly rated by other people (like Trip Advisor). If you're trusting someone to stick a needle in your lips, or give you filler in your cheeks, you want to know that other clients rate them and had a good experience. Therefore, practitioners with the most reviews will appear at the top of the search results. But you can also search clinics by distance or highest rated (based on their score, rather than number of reviews).
Read the reviews from other patients before you book your appointment.
Can they pay to be at the top?
Absolutely not! They only way they get to the top is if they have reviews from their patients.
Can they fake their reviews?
Nope. This is one of the cool things about Glowday. Clinics can not upload their own reviews, or get their mates to write them for them. Glowday collects the reviews only when we see (on our booking system) that the treatment has been completed and paid for. The reviews on Glowday are 100% genuine and authentic - we even know the precise time that patient had their treatment.
So easy to use! See their clinic, see their treatments, book yourself in!
What else can I see?
We also encourage clinics to upload their before and after photos, so you can see their work, their style, their results. We know how much people love looking at before and after photos and it's an important part of the decision making process. So we encourage you to have a good old nose! We ask practitioners to write a bit about themselves in their bio too, so you can get to know the person behind the needle!
I've found a practitioner I like, how do I book in?
Just like when you book an Airbnb or a hotel, you check the availability and book yourself in. Simply select the treatment, or a consultation if you're not sure what might be right for you, we show you their diary, you find a slot that suits you and you book in directly. There and then. Done. No messing about with phone calls, whatsapp or emails. No, okay can you do this time. No, how about this?' It's such a pain. Far easier to just make your own appointment and manage it yourself!
Reviews are KING on Glowday!
What happens if I need to move it?
You move it. You just log back into your Glowday account and rearrange it. Now, some clinics will charge you a late cancellation fee if it's too close to the appointment. But that's only fair and reasonable isn't it? If you tell them a couple of hours before you can't make it, they're not going to be able to fill that slot and they have costs to cover. So just check the charges your chosen clinic applies before you book.
Do I have to pay upfront?
No, that would be silly. Nobody would pay for some Botox before they've actually had it. We do ask for your card details, but that is simply to secure your booking (in the same way you would give a hotel your card details to secure a room). Then, when you've had your fillers or chemical peel, the practitioner will debit from the card you've provided. So you don't need to get any cash out! It's all very easy.
Why would I use Glowday?
Because you will have total peace of mind that everyone who is on Glowday is medically qualified, trained, experienced and safe. We don't let just anyone build a profile on Glowday. They have to prove to us that they're the best of the best in the UK. We check that they're either a nurse, doctor, dentist or pharmacist, we ask for evidence of all of their training and we check they're insured and fit to practice. We also send you handy reminders about your treatment. And, if you have selected the right box, we tell you when your next treatment is due too.
Isn't it better to Google Botox Near Me?
By all means you can spend all day googling 'botox near me' and 'lip filler near me' and you'll be shown lots of results. If you like a gamble, yes, pick someone from Google. But you won't know for sure they are who they say they are and it's unlikely you'll see reviews from other patients that you know are genuine. Of course, while some will have online booking, you may have to phone them to book an appointment, or spend a while messaging back and forth to secure the appointment. Most importantly, you know that everyone on Glowday has been verified and approved by Glowday, which is a very reassuring stamp of approval!
Why does this matter? My beautician can do lip fillers?
Yes she can and this isn't right. In the UK there are no regulations and anyone can legally say they're a trained advanced aesthetics practitioner, when they're not. They may well have done a weekend training course in Botox, or a Zoom course on lip fillers, but they're not medically qualified. They are far less likely to know how to deal with a complication, or conduct a full consent process with you. More worryingly, they are not accountable to anyone. Medical professionals are accountable to their statutory bodies, they have to follow processes and guidelines. If something goes wrong their are consequences for them. If your lips turn black or you nose falls off because the girl in your hairdressers told you she can do do fillers, nothing will come of it if something goes wrong.
Glowday enables you to find the best aesthetics practitioners in the UK, at the touch of a button.
Who is Glowday for?
For everyone. Perhaps you're thinking about your first aesthetic treatment and would like a consultation with a professional. Maybe you've just moved to a new town and want to know who is good near you. You could be a cosmetic treatment veteran and simply want to find someone new or try a new treatment. Whether your 28 or 88, Glowday has someone for everyone.
Do you do anything else?
Yes! We have a pretty good blog going on. Here write articles about every treatment under the sun, we share real people's stories and we have an amazing array of in-depth guides to treatments. We also interview practitioners, discuss celebrities and make lots of fun videos. It's a fab online magazine you can enjoy!
