EXCESSIVE SWEATING (HYPERHIDROSIS)
Excessive sweating – known as severe axillary hyperhidrosis – is a permanent condition that causes discomfort and distress to men and to women.
Some people even go so far as to choose to have their sweat glands removed by a plastic surgeon due to the embarrassment they suffer from having sweaty hands, feet, armpits or profuse all-over sweating in general. However, there is a non-surgical treatment that prevents heavy sweating from interfering with work or daily life.
Hyperhidrosis can be treated with injections of botulinum toxin: an FDA-approved medicine that is a muscle relaxant used by doctors in the UK for years to help patients suffering from excessive sweating.
Botulinum toxin is injected into sweat glands in the armpits, hands or feet in a procedure that’s both quick and safe. This safe procedure is proven to give dramatic and life-changing results for many who suffer from this condition.
HYPERHIDROSIS? AM I AFFECTED?
Perspiration (sweating) is actually a healthy, normal function of our bodies. But some people suffer from excessive sweating that goes beyond the body’s necessary regulation of its temperature. Overactive sweat glands are often responsible for hyperhidrosis. Depending on the cause, there are different treatments available.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE ENTAIL?
Botox® is injected into several areas of the skin and this instantly prevents the sweat glands from producing sweat. Botox® not only has a paralyzing effect on muscles, but also on the glands and can therefore significantly reduce the body’s perspiration by blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate them. This method is mainly used in the armpit area and on the palms of the hands.
BOTOX® TO PREVENT SWEATING
During the summer season we often notice an increased interest in Botox® injections for the armpit area. Especially when the weather is warmer, our patients can avoid unpleasant underarm wet patches and the embarrassment of sweat-stained, discoloured clothing.
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS LAST?
Botox® treatment only takes 20 minutes and lasts up to 6 months. Which is more or less a whole summer.
