The festive party season is in full swing and many people are looking forward to social gatherings with workmates, friends, and neighbours. If you’re anxiously thinking about which outfit will best hide embarrassing armpit stains instead, read on to find out about our revolutionary hyperhidrosis treatment.
Why am I sweating in winter?
Your friends are shivering through layers of thermal underwear, scarves, and sweaters, but you’re sweating through a T-shirt – sounds like you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis. The condition is more common than you might think; in fact, it affects approximately 7.5 million people worldwide. Sweating is a normal body process activated by the nervous system when body temperature rises, but for people with hyperhidrosis the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive. This results in frequent excessive sweating, clammy hands or feet, and sometimes irritable or painful skin problems. Sufferers often feel self-conscious about their appearance and special occasions can turn from fun events into stressful situations. The combination of being at a social event in a warm environment and worrying about excessive sweating often makes things even worse.
What are my treatment options?
You may be surprised to learn that Botox is an effective solution for hyperhidrosis. Botox temporarily blocks the nerves that are responsible for activating sweat glands. It is injected directly into the areas of the body that produce too much moisture, providing a long-lasting, pain-free solution for excessive sweating. At Cliftonville Dental, our qualified health professionals can treat excessive underarm sweating quickly and safely with Body Sweat Solutions, a life-changing treatment that lasts for up to six months.
Does it hurt?
No, Body Sweat Solutions is a pain-free procedure that is administered by a tiny injection.
Will it work in time for my office Christmas party?
Yes! Hyperhidrosis injections are a surprisingly fast and effective solution; following treatment, you should notice symptoms gradually beginning to improve within a week. Underarm injections typically last for around six months, after which your symptoms will gradually return, and you will need follow-up injections. Exact timings may vary, depending on the severity of your condition and how your body responds to treatment. Typically, Botox used to treat armpit hyperhidrosis results in an 82-87% decrease in sweating.
Please contact us for a complimentary consultation to see if Body Sweat Solutions is suitable for you. The treatment costs £525 and clinical improvement generally occurs within the first week after injection and persists for four to seven months.
