Here at the London Beauty Clinic, we are pleased to be able to offer our clients Hyperhidrosis Treatment. Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can be effectively treated using botulinum toxin injections in problem or affected areas. This treatment is extremely effective in significantly reducing sweating in different regions of the body. The amazing results last up to 6-8 months before the treatment needs to be repeated.
“Botulinum toxin can be life-changing for people suffering from hyperhidrosis.”
This is where a non-cosmetic approach from botulinum toxin can be implemented into your treatment plan to help manage the symptoms related to hyperhidrosis. Botulinum toxin’s mechanism of action, when injected into the sweat glands, blocks the nerve signals that are responsible for triggering sweat production. This can help soften the sweat glands and reduce overproduction of sweat. Over time, it has been found that patients can go longer between treatments when maintenance visits are followed through. It has been reported that this area can be more sensitive than others but is very effective when the dosing is being altered to treat your needs, and the outcomes have been very beneficial.
First, numbing cream is applied if the patient prefers, and then a disinfecting agent is applied prior to injecting. Our expert practitioners will provide an assessment and the treatment plan, and then small needles are used to inject a micro dose of botulinum toxin into the sweat glands of affected areas of concern.
Following treatment, patients can expect:
It is important to educate yourself and seek out an experienced injector for botulinum toxin treatments if you are thinking about undergoing one. Botulinum toxin can help you feel more comfortable and confident in your own skin when treating conditions like hyperhidrosis. Just knowing that there is a non-surgical option for treatment can help decrease your stress over sweat and can help you feel confident in daily life situations.
Hyperhidrosis typically affects the scalp, armpits, feet and hands, and the groin area. These areas are most affected as there are more sweat glands present compared to other areas of the body. In generalized hyperhidrosis, the whole body is affected by excessive sweating. In focal hyperhidrosis, the excessive sweating affects only certain areas like the hands and feet.
Some people suffer from hyperhidrosis from birth, while others find that it develops at a later stage. Commonly, excessive sweating will start to affect people in the adolescent stage of life. This condition is sometimes caused by a medical problem, or there may be no known cause.
In primary focal hyperhidrosis, certain areas are affected, but the cause is unknown. In secondary hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating is caused by a medical condition, such as hyperthyroidism, a tumor, gout, obesity, diabetes, or menopause.
When excessive sweating interrupts your daily routine, this is known as hyperhidrosis. Sufferers can experience excessive sweating that occurs episodically. In focal hyperhidrosis, there is no other reason for the sweating, which causes disruption to day-to-day activities. In some cases, changes to lifestyle and habits are known to ease the symptoms.
The symptoms of hyperhidrosis can include:
Post-Appointment Care for Hyperhidrosis Treatment
After your hyperhidrosis treatment, you can resume your daily activities immediately. Generally, Botox Hyperhidrosis Treatment has minimal side-effects.
To ensure optimal results, it is important to refrain from applying pressure or massaging the treated area after your appointment. In rare cases, there may be pinpoint bleeding, but this typically resolves quickly. Occasionally, bruising may occur in the treated area, causing sensitivity when touched.
However, any such issues usually subside within a week of treatment. Temporary swelling or redness, which usually disappears within an hour, is quite common.
