Excessive sweating, also know as Hyperhidrosis, is a common and embarrassing problem. In fact, as many as three in 100 have to deal with this medical condition on a daily basis. Hot or cold, sufferers put up with uncomfortable sweats – whatever the environment.
Over time this often takes its toll on individuals’ confidence. But the problem of heavy sweating doesn’t have to stay with you for life. With anti-perspiration treatments from AP Skincare, you can regain lost confidence and be sweat-free for up to four months.
We inject the skin in the under-arm area with Botox, which affects the signal between the nerve endings and the sweat glands in the dermis.
The Botulism Toxin then binds itself to the nerve endings near the injection site and acts like a roadblock, preventing sweat from being secreted from your skin.
The toxin blocks the release of the chemical that our nerve cells use to communicate with each other. In turn, this disrupts the message sent from the nerve endings to stimulate the production of sweat, and as a result leaves you sweat-free.
Two weeks after your treatment we review the results. If required, we’ll also administer a free top up if there are still areas of excessive moisture. Once satisfactory coverage has been achieved, the Botulism Toxin will continue to work its magic for up to four months.
If you suffer from excessive sweating you’ll know the impact that sweat marked clothes and clammy hands can have on your confidence. You may constantly worry about freshening up; changing clothes and may even avoid making friends or interacting with people throughout the day.
The Hyperhidrosis Support Group even says that loneliness and depression can occur in individuals who suffer from excessive sweating. All of these psychological symptoms can become a thing of the past as the anti-perspiration treatments help you to return back to normality.
Excessive sweating can leave you feeling clammy and far from fresh. It also can cause irritation or painful skin conditions. By choosing anti-perspiration treatments you’ll be able to remove the common physical symptoms you’re subject to as a result of your condition.
The treatment is licensed in the UK and has been used for many years both safely and effectively. There are no long-term complications that follow from having the treatment and it can be repeated every three to six months for maximum effect.
