Alice Hart-Davis, founder of The Tweakments Guide, reviews the BBC1 programme: The Truth about Cosmetic Treatments
Was it just me, or was that programme last night (The Truth about Cosmetic Treatments, BBC1) dull as balls, as my son would say?

Questions to ask before having Botox or anti-wrinkle relaxing injections about results and recovery time.
If you’re considering getting Botox or other anti-wrinkle injections for the first time then you’re probably a little bit nervous about what the results may look like. You will have a consultation with your practitioner before he or she prescribes Botox and sets about your face with a needle, Continue reading “5 questions to ask before getting Botox”
We get messages all the time about tweakments gone disastrously wrong. Read our blog and join Alice Hart-Davis in the fight for increased patient safety.
I’ve talked about the terrible lack of regulation in the aesthetics industry before, and I have talked about why this is a problem.

Alice Hart-Davis shares four things she learned from Britain’s top cosmetic doctors after attending the British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) annual conference.
In September I had the great privilege of attending the annual conference of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM). That might not sound like your idea of a fun way to spend a Saturday but I accepted the invitation like a shot – because BCAM consists of around 360 of the best cosmetic doctors in the UK, and getting to hear what they are focussing on gives a terrific – if not slightly alarming – insight into this fast-moving field.
