Hyperhydrosis - Sweating Treatments
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term used to refer to the condition that results in excessive sweating. It can cause embarrassment and discomfort in sufferers, and often deodorants and creams are ineffective. Having hyperhidrosis is not just a social inconvenience, but also a physical one: changing shirts multiple times a day is no mean feat!

While there are a range of treatments available that claim to target hyperhidrosis, one of the longest standard methods to help reduce the amount of sweat produced by the sweat glands, is Botox. After applying a small amount of numbing cream in the area, aesthetic nurse practitioner Karen Bates will then administer precise amounts of Botox to the armpit. Effects are likely to start showing 48 hours or so after your session, and will improve over time. Results are not permanent, but are long-lasting.

In addition to the sweat glands under the arms, Karen can treat other affected areas, such as the back, forehead, hands and feet.

It is essential for Karen to meet with you for a consultation in person to assess your requirements and to draw up a personalised treatment plan for you. Within this time, you are invited to ask any questions and voice any concerns you may have, ahead of treatment. Karen is a warm, approachable, professional and skilled nurse, and will be able to guide you so that you are confident every step of the way.

To schedule a consultation with Karen and to find out more about the clinic, please contact us today We look forward to meeting you!

Botox is very safe when injected by experienced physicians. Although its active ingredient is a neurotoxin, the small amounts used in Botox injections make more serious side effects virtually non-existent. Some people can develop eyelid drooping that lasts up to three weeks. This usually is caused by Botox moving to unwanted areas, affecting the wrong muscles, and is often a result of the patient rubbing the injection sites..

No. Results will vary, but results typically last from four to six months. At that point, when wrinkles begin to reappear, another Botox session will be needed. Lines and wrinkles often appear less severe over time because the muscles are being trained to relax and stop contracting..
