25 Nov Excess Sweating Hyperhidrosis
It’s normal to sweat if you get hot or do exercise, but when severe sweating interferes with your daily activities, it can cause great emotional upset, especially when it is sweating from the underarms. It can also affect other areas like the feet, hands, and scalp.
What is hyperhidrosis treatment?
Hyperhidrosis is a term for excess sweating and is treated with injections of botulinum toxin. This is an FDA-approved medicine that’s a muscle relaxant.
Botulinum toxin is injected into the skin to treat areas of the body affected: around 15-20 injections are given into the armpits, hands or feet during the procedure.
What areas can be treated with hyperhidrosis treatment?
How does an anti-wrinkle treatment stop you sweating?
Botulinum toxin is a naturally purified protein that blocks the signals from the nerve endings to the sweat glands in the skin. This is used in the treatment of excessive sweating. This toxin is applied through micro-injections into the skin targeting the sweat glands in the area which requires treatment. This safe procedure is proven to give dramatic and life-changing results for many who suffer from this condition.
When will I see the results?
You will see results from 5 days with full benefits being noticed from two weeks.
How long does the treatment take?
The hyperhidrosis treatment takes about 15-20 minutes.
How long do the results last?
Results last for 3-6 months. At this point you can have a top up treatment.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime and you can resume normal activities right away.
Our patients seeking treatment for excess sweating are often frustrated that their anti-perspirant isn’t working; they may be always worried that people might notice their underarm sweat stains, or put off job interviews by giving a clammy handshake. Some patients have to change their clothes a few times a day to avoid embarrassing situations where they get stained underarms. River Aesthetics recommend a treatment using Anti Wrinkle Injections.

“If you find you get embarrassing sweat patches or your palms sweat excessively, we can help by injecting multiple small injections of Botox into the affected area, leaving you sweat free and free to wear whatever you want.”
