My Trip to Glasgow and my thought on Botox & Fillers

Last month I was invited to go to Glasgow to the Transform Glasgow Clinic to learn a little more about facials, fillers and Botox as well as see them performed in real life. It was the first time I had ever done any travelling by myself but since I was barely leaving the country I decided to go as I was quite interested in the procedures.

I was lucky to have been there during a really beautiful few days – I stayed at the Adobe and had a look around the small but beautiful city. If you ever find yourself in Glasgow then I would highly recommend the Museum of Modern Art as well as the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

In the evening, I went to the Transform Clinic in Glasgow to meet the practitioners and learn a little more about their procedures. Any sort of surgery can be a little scary and few (beauty) things divide people more than Botox and fillers. I’m still quite young and I’m really not too sure if I would get them or not in the future but I can see why men and women would choose to get them or not. I do however think that Botox has got a bad name and the Botox which you might spot walking down the street or on TV is always bad or too much Botox and it should look very natural and undetectable.

Finding a good cosmetic doctor is always very important which means you shouldn’t go to your local beauty salon when they have a deal on. I think it’s important to see lots of photos of past work and have a consultation with the person which will be doing your treatment.

Fillers have also become very popular recently; particularly led by Kylie Kardashian and they work really well, but once again only when performed by someone who is highly trained and doing such treatments numerous times a day. This treatment actually surprised me a little more than the Botox as they really do inject and shape the lip, it looked painful but the girl getting it done seemed very comfortable and it was her first time. She didn’t leave with Kylie Kardashian lips either – hers looked fuller but still very natural and really fitted with her features.

It was great to hear that Transform Clinic cater their Botox and filler to each individual face, injecting only small amounts and not finishing a tube just for the sake of it. Cosmetic Surgery isn’t for everyone but if you’ve always been thinking about it I hope this post has helped. I went to the Glasgow clinic but there are numerous clinics up and down the country all with extremely qualified practitioners.

Although at the moment I’m not considering any fillers or Botox I would return to Transform Clinic for hair and mole removal. I had a mini consultation whilst I was there and will keep you updated. A bit of a different post today but I would love to hear your thought in the comments.

    I think as long as cosmetic surgery is done right, I have no objections to it! If it makes the person more confident, then I see no wrong doing!

    This was such an interesting post to read! I'm not opposed to cosmetic surgery and have actually been thinking about getting a boob job for quite a few years but it seems like especially things like lip fillers have such a bad rep these days. I think that as long as it makes you happy and doesn't have any horrific side effects then why not?

    I'm not against botox or fillers but do feel it should have more natural results compared to what we always see in the media! I would definitely go to a clinic for laser hair removal however and feel that would benefit me more also 🙂 great post x
