The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

For immediate release

Botox is the show biz beauty treatment that helps stars like Nicole Kidman, Kylie Minogue and even Simon Cowell stay looking young. But hundreds of Scots are finding themselves in hospital following Botox that’s gone wrong. At present people can undergo the treatment in high-street beauty salons for less than £300 pounds.

Some surgeons have serious concerns that many who offer the cosmetic procedure are not adequately qualified and clients aren’t getting accurate information prior to treatment.

With over 1000 people in the last 3 years seeking medical treatment for botched Botox, Thompsons Solicitors is launching a helpline and website for people affected.

Hannah Bennett from Thompsons said “Everyone wants to look their best and keep the wrinkles at bay but people also have the right to the best possible treatment given by people who know what they’re doing. The huge rise in victims of dodgy Botox is something that needs to be tackled. Thompsons want to hear from anyone who thinks their treatment may have gone wrong.”

Notes to Editors 

An estimated 4000 Scots have the facial injections each month in an effort to smooth out lines and wrinkles. The treatment uses a purified form of the botulinum toxin. It works by temporarily paralysing muscles to prevent creases forming in the skin.

There were 411 hospital admissions in in Scotland in 2012-13 for people using botox and fillers, compared with 297 in the previous 12 months and 347 in 2010-11.

Earlier this year, the Royal College of Surgeons  called for a ban on Botox being administered by non-medical professionals.
