We stress. We squint into the harsh sun. We concentrate.
And over time those expressions leave their mark on our face making us look older, tired, appearing angry or worried.
But now there's BOTOX®. A simple. non-surgical procedure that can dramatically reduce even your toughest wrinkle within days. So it's really up to you. You can choose to live with wrinkles or you can choose to live without them.
BOTOX® is a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles creating a smoother, rejuvenated and youthful appearance. A single treatment - a few tiny injections - relaxes the muscles between or above your brows that cause frown lines to form.
BOTOX® usually lasts for up to four months, depending on the individual. You can decide to repeat the procedure as you wish. The result will wear off gradually and expression lines slowly return. To maintain the effect you will need to continue treatments. The most common areas treated are frown lines (between eyebrows) worry lines in the forehead and crows feet around the eyes. An expert botox injector also knows how to lift your eyebrows and help relieve that aging eyelid droop.
Do you suffer from excessive sweating?
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can be treated. BOTOX® can be used to treat excessive underarm or hand sweating. BOTOX® targets sweating at its source. Once injected by your doctor, BOTOX® enters the specific glands in the underarms and hands responsible for excessive sweating, there; it blocks the release of a chemical that triggers the perspiration. The procedure can be performed in your lunch break.
BOTOX® is a prescription medicine containing 100 units of clostridium botulinum Type A toxin complex for injection. It is used for the treatment of frown lines and excessive sweating. It should be administered only by trained medical professionals. Cautions: people with neuro-muscular transmission disorders, infection at site of injection, pregnancy and lactation. Some people have reported temporary side effects; the most common being headache, eyelid droop, pain and injection site pain. Talk to your specialist about the benefits/risks of this procedure. A charge applies.
Botulinum toxin type A is available in two formulations in New Zealand: Dysport® and Botox®. However, their different manufacturing methods mean that they have different dose strengths. The dose required for treating an area is worked out by the physician, who will adjust for this difference in strength. The cost is generally the same and which formulation is chosen is usually dependent on the physician. Both are available at the clinic.

Restylane and other Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are used to restore and support the appearance of facial skin that has begun to wrinkle, sag or is scarred. They are used to enhance or increase the shape of lips to a desired image. Numerous products are now available which either occur naturally in the body and dissolve naturally with time, which may take from a few months to more than a year, or synthetically made to be accepted by the body and aid in reducing unwanted wrinkles or lines. There are long acting ones that take two or more years to dissolve and even permanent fillers. The Vein and Skin Doctor and Nurses have been using fillers for more that 10 years and stock all the brands recommended by NZCAM (New Zealand College of Appearance Medicine).
The dermal fillers are injected through a series of very fine needle pricks which can be performed painlessly under local anaesthetic or under local anaesthetic cream applied an hour or so beforehand. Treatment instantly improves the appearance of lines & wrinkles that have taken years to form. To maintain the look, a regular top up is recommended. The frequency varies with individuals, and needs to be discussed with the dermal filling expert.
Dermal Fillers available include:
Restylane - Cosmoderm - Sculptra - Radiesse - Vital

Testimonial for Botex Treatment at Pampers Escape Day Spa
"Having relocated to Blenheim 5 years ago from Auckland, where I was a regular patient of an appearance medicine clinic, I was very concerned that I would not be able to find a clinic to provide the same procedures.
I should not have worried as Linda at Pampers Escape in association Specialist Nurse Marie Hendricks from Accent on Skin in Wellington, provide an extensive range of procedures right here in Blenheim, with the same expertise and professionalism I had been accustomed to in Auckland. I am a regular patient of Marie for Botox and dermal fillers. She is an experienced and intelligent practitioner and has a wonderful eye for subtly improving features and rejuvenating the overall appearance of the face.
I would be more than happy to discuss the procedures I have had with anyone who may be considering treatments with Linda or Marie "
