Excessive Sweating, Hyperhidrosis treatments in Tunbridge Wells
Stop excessive sweating with Botox® injections
The treatment for Excessive Sweating, Hyperhidrosis is quick and simple to perform and can reduce and almost 100% eliminate sweating for around 6 months. Patients treated with Botox® often report life-changing results.
BOTOX® treatment helps control Hyperhidrosis by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the eccrine sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive the chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
Hyperhidrosis treatments are available immediately after a free, no obligation consultation for patients aged 18 and over. Perspiration normally diminishes substantially within 48 hours and the effects of treatment can last up to 8 months. This effect will eventually wear off and the patient will require another treatment.
BOTOX® does not provide a cure for hyperhidrosis but it can certainly help to relieve your symptoms. Sweating no longer becomes the main focus of your day – you can eliminate the embarrassment factor and confidence can be restored. No more worrying about staining your clothes and body odour. No more restrictions on which colours and materials you can wear. You can exercise at will, go on holiday or, simply, hold the hands of loved ones.
Common areas for treatment include:
If you recognise that your perspiration is becoming a problem, you want to lose those embarrassing sweat stains and ensure you stay dry, odour-free and relaxed in warm weather and strained situations, then start afresh with rtwskin’s Botox treatment.
Botox has been used for the last 20 years for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis, and is now utilised in 75 countries for its various therapeutic and cosmetic purposes. In clinical trials it was shown to reduce problem sweating in 87%-95% of cases. When injected into the skin in minute quantities, the Botox works by temporarily blocking the release of the chemical responsible for sending signals from the nerves to the sweat glands. At RTW Skin we know that sometimes problems can arise where you least expect, so we will gladly treat many areas of the body, including underarms, face, palms, scalp and feet.
Using a very fine needle, your practitioner will inject a small amount (1-2mls per armpit) of a solution of BOTOX® spread evenly on the skin. Is it painful?The needles used are very fine so most people experience only mild discomfort. It is uncommon for pain relief to be required. A local anaesthetic may be used when treating the palms however, as they are much more sensitive. The anaesthetic usually wears off in less than an hour.
BOTOX® temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, sweating is reduced. Botox hyperhidrosis treatment typically produces results that can last for up to 8 months. Following repeated treatments, the effects tend to last for a longer period of time.
Sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because it’s simply not produced in the areas treated with BOTOX®. Sweat will continue to be produced elsewhere.
