Remove wrinkles with Botox ® treatment
Wrinkles can appear at any time. They’ll usually begin to show on your face as your skin loses its elasticity. As you smile, frown, laugh or make any facial gesture, you naturally develop wrinkles. Over time “dynamic lines” become “static lines” which remain on your face for good.
At Prescription Skin Care we inject Botox ® to battle against these stubborn wrinkles. By injecting into the faces underlying muscles, we temporarily block the nerve impulses that trigger contractions in the face. As a result, the skin appears naturally smoother and reduces the signs of ageing.
Botox ® can minimise the appearance of existing deep lines and wrinkles. It reduces the muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form and prevents them from becoming fixed lines. When deep lines form, a combination of dermal fillers and Botox ® may be more efficient. Our practitioners will advise you on what the most effective treatment is in your individual case.
Treating forehead wrinkles with Botox ®
Forehead lines make you look older than you actually are. But with Botox ® injections you can change this. These wrinkles are caused by your frontalis muscle, a muscle that regularly becomes active as your face becomes animated. A Botox ® injection reduces the movement of this primary muscle, which greatly diminishes the prominence of wrinkles.
Forehead injections require a skilled practitioner as they can have a dramatic effect on the shape of your eyebrows if delivered incorrectly. The experienced team at Prescription Skin Care have been performing botox injections for over 10 years!
Eyebrow lifts with Botox ® treatment
This procedure requires an experienced practitioner as there is a very small margin of error for injections around the eyebrows. Over-injecting the forehead or injecting into the “danger zone” 1cm above the eyebrows will lead to drooping eyelids (Brow Ptosis) where the Frontalis muscle stops lifting the upper eyelids. All of our practitioners are trained by plastic surgeons from the New Zealand Institute of Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery (NZIPCS).
Before treatment, we’ll assess your natural eyebrow shape and consider fixing any asymmetric eyebrows. We will also discuss with you, whether you want to enhance the shape of your eyebrows. How we place the injections will determine whether they appear more arched or retain a natural, horizontal appearance.
Reducing excessive sweating with Botox ®
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be an embarrassing condition. Not only can it affect your confidence, but also give the wrong impression to friends or colleagues. Visible signs of excessive sweating such as underarm stains, dripping palms or wet clothing can make you look nervous and unsightly. This is the last thing you want during an important presentation or sales pitch.
Botox ® treatments can last up to 7 months and reduce sweating instantly! Treatments take less than 5 minutes and are more than 95% effective.
