Here are the do's and don'ts, according to Vogue.

Don't settle! Just like any big, booming business, there will always be those who are trying to capatilize on it. If someone is offering you Botox at a price that seems to good to be true, then hold off until you've done your research. Similarly, if the practioner seems a little reluctant to share what product they're using, then alarm bells should start ringing. You have a right to know what's going into your face, and if it seems like a risky business then don't go through with it - no matter how much better it will be for your wallet.

Reasearch, Research, Research. It might be tempting to go to the first practioner you see, but taking the time to do a little digging could save you a world of heartache in the future. Plastic surgeon Jana Vogt recommends that everyone thinking about getting injectables should use social media to their advantage. Most professional clinics have Instagram profiles, so go through their work and see if it's the kind of thing you're after. Do they ineract positively with their following?

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Going into a doctor's office can be daunting, but don't be afraid to ask them any and all questions that you've got about the procedure. Any clinic worth its salt will be more than happy to go through every last detail with you, and if they aren't - well, you know what to do.

Less is more. It's often tempting to go in all guns blazing, but with any type of filler it's always important to start of slowly. Less is more in this case, and if you go away and decide you want a little extra than what you've got at least you've given yourself time to mull it over. The last thing anyone wants is for you go for more mils than necessary and cry when you see yoursel in the mirror.
