Excessive Sweating – Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Do you perspire significantly more than other people? If so, and you have already seen your GP in order to rule out a serious underlying health problem, you are likely one of the thousands of sufferers of a condition called hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis occurs when the sweat glands in the skin become overactive. These glands are located in your underarms, palms of your hands and soles of your feet, the areas that secrete the most sweat.
If you’re sick of embarrassing sweat patches and want a hyperhidrosis treatment, Botox for hyperhidrosis may be the answer.
It can be managed relatively easily with simple 6 monthly Botox injections.
Before we begin your treatment here at Saving Smiles, we’ll discuss your medical history in thorough detail to rule out any possible medical causes. When you’re ready to go ahead with treatment, we will use a micro needle to inject the Botox into your skin.
This will prevent the signal that occurs between your nerve endings and your sweat glands.
The protein will adjoin with the nerve endings that are found near the injection site and creates a block preventing the release of acetylcholine (the chemical your nerves release to communicate between them).
This prevents the messages that are sent from your nerve endings to stimulate the production of sweat.
This is a safe, well-established procedure that has been used for many years. The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Botox is a very safe procedure and does not typically produce side effects. You may experience mild bruising after the procedure but this should subside within a few days.
