As much as we may not enjoy the idea of sweating, the truth is that sweating is an absolutely normal bodily function. Sweating allows your body to cool itself when it begins to overheat. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that can result in excessive sweating. The condition can have an impact on both men and women. This condition can prove to be quite embarrassing, as it can result in visible sweat patches on your clothing even after minimal activity. It can also take a toll on your self-esteem and the confidence that you have in social or business arenas.
It is possible to minimise the side-effects of less severe forms of this uncomfortable condition. Changing a few things about your lifestyle may help. As an example, the use of strong antiperspirants, or by wearing cool and comfortable clothing and simply avoiding much activity. This is not a long-term solution, however, and it certainly won’t prove effective for those who struggle with the severity of this condition.
When administered at The Bay Medispa in Sydney, anti-sweat injections are a simple, quick and highly effective treatment that can provide results for 6-12 months.
Are you interested in anti-sweat injections, offered at The Bay Medispa? Here is what you need to know about this effective treatment.
Anti-sweat injections contain the botulinum toxin. This is the same botulinum toxin that is used to successfully minimise the appearance of wrinkles on the face. Botulinum toxin is injected into the affected underarm area. The botulinum toxic works by blocking the nerve functions of the sweat glands in the underarm area. This effective excessive sweating treatment sees positive results in men and women alike.
Those who undergo this hyperhidrosis treatment find that they see up to a 95% reduction in sweat. This is an incredible difference for those who have for so long struggled with the discomfort and embarrassment that can accompany this condition.
Results can vary between individuals. Typically speaking, the results from this treatment can last between 6 and 12 months. Subsequent treatments tend to last longer than the first one or two, but results may still vary based upon your body’s metabolism. Duration of effect can also vary based on the severity of your condition.
Men and women who have suffered from excessive sweating will find that this treatment proves exceptionally beneficial. This treatment is safe and effective, and produces the results that can help to restore your comfort and confidence.
Your comfort is the priority during every step of the treatment. Once you are comfortable, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. Once the cream has taken effect, the targeted area will be injected with a very small needle. Most patients tolerate the needle very well and feel nothing but some mild and temporary discomfort.
The injections can take up to 30 minutes, depending on the severity of your condition. Injection marks will fade soon after treatment.
You will receive post procedural advice and guidance so that you can best understand the treatment you’ve just had.
While you may not experience immediate results from this treatment, you should start to notice a slight decrease in sweating within 3 days of getting the injections. It can vary by patient, however. The full effect of the treatment can take between 2 and 3 weeks after the procedure.
One of the best benefits to anti-sweat injections is that no downtime will be needed after your treatment has concluded. You should limit the use of aspirin and similar medications before and after treatment. Also avoid heavy massaging of the treated area. You should also try to limit any type of strenuous exercise for up to 24 hours after your treatment. Outside of these minor lifestyle adjustments, you can go about your day immediately following your injections.
According to research and the positive history of this treatment, anti-sweat injections are safe. Treatment safety can only be assured when the injections are administered by trained hands with the needed expertise. Side-effects from the treatment are possible, but they are rare.
Women who are pregnant or nursing should not undergo this treatment, however. Those who have rare neuromuscular disorders should consult with their treating doctor prior to getting treatment for hyperhidrosis.
The cost for your treatment may vary based upon factors that are unique to your condition. The majority of those who undergo treatment see treatment for underarm injections starting at $950.
