Hyperhidrosis-Excessive-sweating-skin-logics

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive sweating) affects millions of people around the world and can be managed by targeting the sweat glands with Botulinum toxin.
Hyperhidrosis involves overactive sweat glands which can lead to excessive sweating. This can become embarrassing, stressful uncomfortable, and be disabling. Excessive underarm sweating is one of the most common presentations and this can disrupt many aspects of a person’s life. It can limit career options, affect relationships, and can be detrimental to emotional well-being and self-esteem.
At Skin Logics Clinic our Doctors treat many clients with differing degrees of hyperhidrosis using Botulinum Toxin which targets sweating at its source.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that affects millions of people around the world. Uncontrolled sweating can occur in various parts of the body including the hands, feet or underarms. Although high temperatures or stress can increase perspiration, they don’t cause hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis may be inherited trait or physiological condition that stops the body from properly regulating its temperature.

 

What is Botulinum treatment?

Botulinum Toxin is a natural, purified protein and it temporarily stops the release of a neurotransmitter (chemical) that signals perspiration thus helping to reduce excessive sweating. The Botulinum toxin is derived from a bacterium, similarly as penicillin is derived from mould. It is then manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions.
Botulinum Toxin is a prescription-only medicine and is registered for the treatment of severe axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating).

How does the treatment work?

At Skin Logics Clinic, during your free consultation, our Doctor will determine if Botulinum toxin is a suitable treatment.
Botulinum Toxin Treatment is a non-surgical procedure where a small amount of Botulinum Toxin is administered into the skin of the armpits using a very fine needle. The procedure takes around 30 minutes. Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and although the injection may sting for a few seconds, normal activity can be resumed soon after.
After the injection, it takes about seven days for the Botulinum Toxin treatment to take full effect.

 

How long does the treatment last?

After treatment the average person experiences about a 60-80 percent reduction in sweating. The effects of BOTOX® last approximately 6-7 months, however, results vary from person to person.
