Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a condition that affects the amount of perspiration produced by the body. The condition can leave the affected areas constantly damp making everyday activities difficult to carry out and inevitably causing embarrassment to the sufferer.
There is a quick and simple treatment available using a product known as Botox® or Vistabel®. This product is normally used to treat facial frown lines and wrinkles but it can also be effectively used to prevent the sweat glands from producing excess levels of sweat.
My Cosmetic Group provides effective Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, injections to help reduce excessive sweating. This procedure is also known as hyperhidrosis treatment. All treatments are carried out by an experienced, excessive sweating specialist doctor in our branches.
When severe sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants are not working, you may be a suitable candidate for the Botulinum toxin treatment. The body areas that can commonly experience over active sweat glands are: the under arms, palms, feet and forehead.
Botox is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. Botox is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
Prior the treatment : Numbing cream can be applied to the area for 30 minutes before although some patients prefer not to use this and opt for an ice pack to numb the area instead. Many patients do not require either. Please be advised that for underarm treatments, we will require the area to be freshly shaved or the hairs to be trimmed to a length of 1cm long.
The treatment : The actual procedure takes about 20 to 25 minutes and is relatively straightforward. A series of small Botulinum toxin injections are injected to the relevant areas through a very fine needle.
Post treatment : Simply avoid touching, rubbing or applying anything on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. Specific instructions will be given to you on the day of treatment by our Clinic Coordinator.
You will start seeing and feeling the results at about 1-2 weeks after the treatment.
