Excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, is a very common condition affecting adults of different ages. You may be surprised to hear that it is not a condition confined to the summer months and can seriously impact confidence and self-esteem if left untreated.
If you have overactive sweat glands, your skin becomes wetted as the glands are producing too much moisture. Even if sufferers have impeccable personal hygiene, excessive sweating can still strike and it affects many people’s confidence and wellbeing.
If you are suffering from excessive underarm sweating, this can be treated effectively using Body Sweat Solutions treatment – a pain-free procedure that can be performed by our experts in hyperhidrosis here at Cliftonville. This is carried out using Botulinum Toxin A which has been used by doctors for this procedure for more than 20 years (it is also used for facial aesthetic treatments, see here).
How does Botox prevent me from sweating?
Our experts here at Cliftnville will administer the Botox via a tiny needle and 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. The effects of treatment last between 4-6 months and many patients make further appointments to keep the treatment sustained.
In some instances, tackling excessive sweating maybe simply be a case of changing a few things in your day-to-day life. We can offer advice on how to keep excessive sweating at bay.
