HYPERHIDROSIS

For those suffering from severe underarm sweating – a condition that is clinically referred to as hyperhidrosis – Botulinum toxin injections can help. Hyperhidrosis can be an embarrassing and hard to disguise condition, which can affect a person’s confidence, productivity, and quality of life. The FDA has approved Botulinum toxin to treat hyperhidrosis when antiperspirants or other medications fail. Not only does this treatment alleviate the actual sweat, but it also reduces body odor (Bromhydrosis).

TREATMENT PROCESS

First Health Medical & Skincare centre often performs Botulinum toxin injections for those experiencing profuse sweating of the underarms and hands. Our expert doctor first evaluate each individual to diagnosis hyperhidrosis and then customise a treatment plan based on personal needs. The number of Botulinum toxin  units used, injection site, and frequency of treatment will vary with each client.

HOW DOES BOTULINUM TOXIN TREAT EXCESSIVE UNDERARM SWEATING?

Botulinum toxin  are purified proteins that block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. By interrupting this chemical messenger, Botulinum toxin prevents sweat prevention at the injection site. Strategic and precise placement of injections is the key to effectively stopping the glands from producing sweat. A single treatment of several injections is typically sufficient to reduce sweating for several months; however, follow-up sessions are usually necessary to maintain results.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?

Prior to treatment, you will be prepped with a cleanse of the area and application of iodine and cornstarch. Sweat interacts with cornstarch and iodine and the sweating area (glands) turn purple. These areas are then marked for injection! Botulinum toxin injections are made in the skin near the sweat glands responsible for perspiration and are administered using a very fine needle. Injections are shallow and relatively painless, injected just below the surface of the skin, where they remain. Approximately 20-25 injections in each underarm are made.

The standard dose is 50 units per underarm but may vary depending on the patient. Treatment time may take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the injection site. There is little to no downtime associated with this treatment, and most patients are able to return to their normal routine immediately.

You should notice an initial improvement of excessive sweating within about 2 weeks. Repeated treatment is safe and effective for hyperhidrosis and consistently results in long-lasting improvements and a significant reduction in excessive sweating, thus improving quality of life.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?

The effects of Botulinum toxin injections usually last approximately 4 to 6 months. Although, some patients are free of excessive sweating for more than 6 months to a year.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?

Most patients do not experience side effects after treatment. However, localised pain or mild bruising may occur near the injection site for some people.

What can I say about Dr. Rizvi. I read some of her outstanding reviews before meeting her but having had a session to... remove a couple of moles I can tell you words cannot do her justice.She is obviously highly skilled but also creates such a warm and caring atmosphere. You feel completely looked after and you can tell this comes from a place of her wanting to use her talents to help people in the best way she can. She truly is an incredible woman and I can’t recommend her enough!read more

What a wonderful caring sweet doctor. Professional and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and respected. I was given... clear honest answers when I had questions. For the first time ever I was looking forward to seeing a doctor for the second time for stitches removal. I would highly recommend first health medical. The staff are all so friendly and accommodating. I’m still in awe with the doctor, she was just such a lovely woman with positive and warm energy, I felt in safe hands when I was having minor surgery. I can not praise this centre enough!read more
