Remove Wrinkles with Botox treatments

Wrinkles start to appear on your face as your skin loses its elasticity. Over time “dynamic lines”, that appear when we make facial expressions, become “static lines” and remain visible when the face is at rest.

At Prescription Skin Care we directly inject Botox into the underlying muscles temporarily blocking the nerve impulses that trigger contractions. As a result, the skin appears smoother and reduces the signs of aging .

Botox can minimize the appearance of existing deep lines and wrinkles but it is most effective treating dynamic lines. It reduces the muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form and prevents them becoming fixed lines. When deep lines have formed a combination of dermal fillers and Botox ® may be more effective. Your practitioner can advise you what the most effective treatment will be for you.

Forehead Wrinkles treatment with botox
Forehead lines can make you look older than you are. Botox injections reduce the action of the primary muscle in the forehead, the Frontalis muscle, which causes wrinkles to form when the face is animated.

Injections in the forehead require a skilled practitioner as they can have a dramatic effect on the shape of the eyebrow. The experienced team at Prescription Skin Care have been performing botox injections for over 10 years!

When this procedure is administered we consider whether you want to enhance the arch of the eyebrow. It is considered more feminine to have an arched shape while a horizontal eyebrow is more masculine.

Eyebrow lifts through Botox treatments
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 will assess your natural eyebrow shape and consider any asymmetry in you eyebrows that needs correction. We will also consider whether you want to enhance your eyebrow shape. How we place the injections will determine whether they appear more arched or retain a natural or horizontal appearance.

Excessive Sweating
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be an embarrassing condition that can have a negative impact on your confidence. This can be made worse for professionals who need to look their best at work. Visible signs of excessive sweating such as underarm stains, dripping palms or wet clothing make those affected look less confident and/or nervous. 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.

Botox FAQs

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is a nonsurgical, physician–administered aesthetic treatment for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age.

How does Botox work?

Botox treats the cause of facial lines by reducing the muscle contractions that cause lines to form over time. Botox is injected directly into the underlying muscles, where it enters the nerve endings to block the release of acetylcholine, the chemical that causes muscles to contract. Once the muscles are at rest, skin becomes smoother.

How long does Botox treatment take and how long do results last?

Botox treatments take an average of 30 minutes to administer. Within two to five days your skin will start to appear younger and smoother. Each treatment is effective for up to four months.

Are there any side-effects to using Botox? Can the toxin can spread from the treatment area?

There has not been a confirmed serious case of the spread of toxin effect away from the injection site when Botox has been used at the recommended dosage.
