Botox is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Botox treats the cause of facial wrinkles by reducing the muscle activity that causes lines to form.

Botox has been in use for over 20 years. Over 5 million Botox procedures are carried out year on year worldwide. Botox treatment requires no anaesthetic. It is one of the most effective cosmetic procedures and requires almost no recovery time.

Treatments typically take 30 minutes to carry out and you can return to work immediately after treatment. Your skin will start to appear younger & smoother after two to five days.

How can Botox treatments help you?

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

Revitalise the appearance of the face by raising the lateral aspect of the eyebrow for a more youthful appearance. An eyebrow lift also referred to as a chemical brow lift is a non-surgical procedure that elevates the eyebrow by injecting into the lateral depressor muscles that pull the down the brow.

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
