Effective Treatment for Excess Sweating
Do you suffer from excess sweating in your armpits?
Instead of exploring drastic options such as removal of sweat glands, there is now the option of applying injections to block the nerves that supply the eccrine glands. This then prevent the glands from producing sweat.
Often referred to as their brand name Botox®, these common injections are a prescription only medicine commonly used for anti-wrinkle treatments, that can give highly effective relief from an embarrassing condition.
The procedure is very quick with minimal downtime and the results are effective within a week or two of treatment and effective for up to 6 months.
What to expect
This armpit area is marked with a grid of 1cm squares, then a dilution of the filler is injected into the skin of each square. If you have sensitive skin we offer a local anaesthetic cream to help numb the injections.
There is no recovery time needed post-treatment.
You will notice the positive effects gradually increasing for around 2 weeks after treatment. The reduction in excess sweating should then last for up to a year.
Dr Wass will arrange a follow up in 2 to 3 weeks to ensure the best results are achieved.
