Axilla Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Sweating is a natural function of the human body. However, sweating in excess of the normal needs of the body is called hyperhidrosis. This can be embarrassing. It stains clothes and can complicate business and social interactions, having a significant impact on how you feel, what you do and what you wear.
There is no need suffer unnecessarily and be embarrassed any more as this can now be simply and effectively treated with tiny injections of the same muscle relaxant used to treat facial wrinkles.
How does it work?
Muscle relaxant injections have a blocking effect on the nerves which supply the sweat glands, and have positive outcomes for those that suffer from excessive sweating.
The muscle relaxant is injected directly into the armpit in a series of evenly placed, small injections. The needles used are very tiny and discomfort is minimal.
What does treatment involve?
The effectiveness in reducing sweat production is very good, with a 95% reduction and duration of effect varying on average between 6 to 8 months.
You should notice a big improvement in your condition within a week of treatment. The nerves will eventually recover with a return of previous sweat production therefore follow up treatment can be repeated when necessary.
After suffering from peri-menopausal symptoms for the past 2 ½ years with hot flushes turning into the worst scalp sweats ever to the point where I looked as though I had been in the shower I was at my wits end.!
HRT was unsuitable for me so I had tried a number of natural and not so natural tablets but to no avail. I had read about hyperhidrosis on many websites including the NHS & as soon as I read about the benefits of Botox I thought this is my last hope. I discovered Dentelle aesthetic skin solutions on the internet & arranged an appointment with Dr Clare Quinn who fully explained about the treatment. I had never been so excited about receiving injections!
I am so pleased to say that although not instant, (people often think Botox is immediate), I am now completely sweat free from my scalp I can socialise without fear of sweat running from my hair down my face and affecting my make up.My hair is completely dry, I can eat a hot meal in a restaurant without fear that I am going to melt & more importantly I can go back on the dating scene with confidence. The hot flushes will of course continue whilst my body goes through the change of life but at least I can now hold my head up with confidence.
Thank you so very much I could never ever begin to explain how my life has been transformed.
