Where does it come from?
Any reputable aesthetic doctor and/or medical aesthetic clinic should be able to show you where exactly they source their supplies from. It should always be an open and honest relationship with no mystery.
Can the practice give you the details of the supplier and or batch number if necessary?
It is not common practice to have this openly displayed however should you ever be in doubt it is well within your rights to inquire. Most clinics play open cards and will gladly provide the information should you request it. They should give you both the supplier’s name and the batch code.
Is the person doing your treatment a doctor?
Therapists, hairdressers and any other form of person other than a fully qualified medical aesthetics doctor are not licensed. Therefore they should under no terms administer injectables. Making use of people who are not qualified is extremely risky and not recommended at all!
