Hyperhidrosis is a condition where an individual suffers from excessive sweating. The condition is known to be symmetric, meaning that sweating is most likely to occur on both sides of the body and sufferers often find the condition occurs in more than just one place. The most focal areas Hyperhidrosis is known for appearing are sweaty hands, sweaty feet, sweaty face and head and sweaty underarms. It is not known for sure whether Hyperhidrosis is hereditary however, often family members of the same family suffer from the condition.
Which areas can be treated at Australian cosmetic Institute?
The expert team at Australian Cosmetic Institute in South Yarra, treat patients who experience excessive sweating with the popular solution for the condition using botox/dysport (Anti Wrinkle Injections). These Anti Wrinkle Injections help prevent further sweating in the areas the treatment has been injected into.
How does it work?
The treatment uses a muscle relaxant which temporarily block nerve impulses to the injected muscles. In this circumstance, the muscles which are relaxed temporarily block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands thus, the severe sweating stops as the sweat glands have been prevented from receiving their usual chemical signals.
