Information and Consent for Botulinum A Toxin (BTXA) ‘Botox’
Important Background to the Consent Process
Your clinician wishes to help you make an informed decision about your treatment options and any relevant alternative options. You may at any time decline treatment even after giving your consent.
Whilst your clinician will make every effort to understand what significance you would attach to any particular risk it is important to us that you feel comfortable enough to question the clinician on any point of concern during this process. Please feel you have as much time as you wish to reflect on the information given before agreeing to proceed with the treatment.
Purpose of Treatment
You have presented with concerns which have formed the basis of a clinical discussion and examination. The purpose of the proposed treatment is to address your concerns either individually or in combination with other modalities of treatment.
Your clinician will endeavour in good faith to employ the principles of best practice in delivering your treatment. Each patient is individual and response to treatment will vary from patient to patient and treatment to treatment. As such it is difficult to guarantee outcomes will always meet your expectations.
Botox is a purified protein of the toxin normally produced by Clostridium botulinum. Wrinkles and fine lines develop over time by the repeated contraction of facial muscles. By injecting Botox precisely in these specific muscles, the nerve impulse traveling to the muscle is blocked. This blockage prevents contraction, therefore relaxing the muscles. Typically, you will see an improvement in the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles within 2 weeks following treatment, the maximum effect being observed 5 to 6 weeks after injection. The treatment effect can be seen for up to 4 months after injection.

Patients are advised to take in to account all these potential risks before consenting to treatment. Please make your clinician fully aware of your expectations prior to giving consent.
Botox treatment for the conditions which have been discussed with your clinician today has been well studied over the last 40 years and no special hazard has been observed in humans except in high doses.
Contraindications and Relative Contraindications to Treatment
Limited or no clinical data exists regarding the efficacy and tolerance of this treatment in patients having a history of, or currently suffering from, auto-immune disease or auto-immune deficiency or being under immunosuppressive therapy. The clinician shall therefore decide on the indication on a case by case basis according to the nature of the disease and its treatment and the need for monitoring post-treatment. Your clinician will discuss the need for a preliminary skin testing for hypersensitivity if necessary, or in the case of patients with severe or multiple allergies. Patients on coagulation medication or other substances known to increase coagulation time must be aware of the potential increased risk of bleeding and haematoma during and following treatment.
Your clinician will also discuss the suitability of treatment having considered your medical history and any medications you currently take, as appropriate. As such, it is imperative you disclose such medications at the time of your treatment.
Your clinician will discuss with you, strategies we may employ to minimize pain during the procedure, such as the use of topical anaesthetics or ‘cold applications’. Please advise your clinician if you have an allergy to, or have ever had a reaction to, any such anaesthetic.
