The Harley Medical Group has revealed that recent reports from

for smaller doses of Botox and are turning patients away who demand treatment they
Liz Dale, Director of The Harley Medical Group said: "Used properly, Botox is a fantastic treatment giving smoother, tighter and more youthful looking skin.
But like with any procedure, it's highly inadvisable to have more done than is
necessary. At The Harley Medical Group all Botox treatments are administered by
specially trained doctors who will look out for signs of a Botox 'habit' and will

The Harley Medical Group works tirelessly to maintain the highest standards in the
industry for the benefits all cosmetic surgery and non surgical patients. The group
is at the forefront of the campaign to ensure that the Government continues to
regulate the use of certain laser types used in cosmetic surgery and non surgical
treatments so that patients are protected from rogue practitioners.
Dr Nick Milojevic, Botox Doctor at The Harley Medical Group said: "When used

Botox has a fantastic preventative benefit, helping to prevent more wrinkles from
forming whilst stopping lines and creases already present from deepening. 'Baby
Botox', a lighter variation of the treatment, only uses extremely low doses of the
toxin to give a very subtle and natural effect."
