The Endless Sweating Dilemma
Published on: October 11, 2019
Everybody sweats – that’s just part of human biology. In fact, if we didn’t sweat, our body wouldn’t be able to cool us down when we got too hot, which would be pretty disastrous! But, not everyone sweats the same. For some of us, we don’t just get a little perspiration on our forehead every now and then, we get full on floods of the stuff dripping all over our face and body. Not a pretty sight!
If you can relate, you probably suffer from excessive sweating, and you’re not alone. Check out the facts and see what you can do about it.
What Is Excessive Sweating?
Known officially as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can affect either the whole body or just specific areas, such as your feet, hands, armpits, or groin – these are the points where you have a lot of sweat glands, so you can see why they’d get the full force of the problem. Whilst it’s not a life threatening condition, it can be very embarrassing and uncomfortable. If you could live without it, we don’t doubt that you would.
Luckily, there are ways you can deal with the problem and take your life back, and our team at The London Cosmetic Clinic are here to help you out.
What We Can Do
A treatment that’s been shown to help reduce the amount your body sweats and regain control over hyperhidrosis is Botulinum toxin injection treatment.
Not just for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, the medication can actually work wonders in treating excessive sweating and is approved by the FDA. At The London Cosmetic Clinic, we can have one of our specialists doctors provide you a consultation about the treatment before carrying it out, making sure we know exactly what you want and you’re clued up on the procedure.
How Does it Work?
Once we’ve injected the Botulinum toxin, the chemical signals that are sent to the nerves from your brain that essentially tell your body to start sweating will be blocked. That means that your sweat glands will never get the signal they need to start working, so your body will stop sweating so much. Pretty clever, right? The result last average 6-7 months!
The treatment’s simple and our team are experts in carrying out, so there is hardly discomfort of the injection with a gentle injection technique of our doctor with a very small needles. There is no down time after. If you are a little nervous, you’ll have plenty of time to ask our specialists all your questions before we book you in for the treatment in your consultations, and by the time it comes to getting it done you’ll know everything you need to.
