BOTOX for excessive sweating- the bench test

Excessive sweating is a common problem that you no longer have to put up with.

I had BOTOX treatment to my palms to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). I had suffered with this for years, especially over the summer months. I'm delighted with the results... and noticed recently that I can now leave my hands on the black reception desk at Palm Clinic and not leave wet marks behind- the bench test!

Botox works by blocking the message from the nerve to the sweat gland, thereby inhibiting sweating. The results for excessive sweating can last up to one year. Another popular area for treatment is the armpits.

Botox and Dysport are Prescription Medicines containing 100 units of clostridium botulinum Type A toxin complex for injection. It is used for the treatment of severe frown lines of the face. It should be administered only by trained medical professionals. Arrange a consultation to discuss the benefits/risks of this procedure in appearance medicine. Cautions: people with defective neuromuscular transmission disorders, presence of infection at site of injection, glaucoma, pregnancy and lactation. Possible side effects include headaches, pain, burning or redness at injection site, local muscle weakness including drooping eyelids, lack of feeling and nausea. If you have side effects or concerns speak to a doctor. A charge applies. Note: Botox and Dysport treatment lasts about 4 months and after this time further courses of treatment could be necessary. Arrange a consultation to discuss your own situation.

Why a Non Surgical Facelift?

A surgical facelift relies on tightening the underlying structure of the face and removing excess skin.

What is more important however is replacing the lost volume. Look at anyone in their youth and they have a fullness to their face particularly noticeable in younger woman with high cheekbones.

As we age we lose fat from the cheek area often revealing a flatness in the mid-face and the tell tale wrinkles and lines under and around the eyes. This area in particular benefits from volumising with dermal fillers.
