Guide To Choosing Your Treatment Provider

How to achieve value for money and natural results from a non-surgical treatment provider

Dr Tanquerayby Dr John Tanqueray, Cosmetic Physician


Finding the right practitioner to deliver the best results for you while keeping the costs as reasonable as possible can be difficult and confusing.

Having met too many people who have had a poor experience I have  developed this guide to help you make the right decision first time – please feel free to print it off and use it to compile a checklist of questions you would like to ask, and make notes to guide your decision.

The benefits to you

  • To make it easier for you to make an informed choice in a confusing marketplace
  • To help you obtain the most cost-effective treatment
  • To help you choose a practitioner who is likely to deliver treatment safely
  • To help you achieve natural looking results that enhance your appearance

How to approach your quest to find the right practitioner and practice

  • Do your research
  • At the first consultation think as if you are checking the practitioner out on behalf of a relative rather than yourself – you’ll be more critical and objective that way.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions
  • Visit each clinic and practitioner first before committing to a treatment
  • Make sure you compare like for like
  • Focus on value for money and results rather than headline price
