For localised areas of Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), Anti-Wrinkle Injections can be helpful and maybe life changing for some individuals.
The most commonly treated areas are the underarms. It works by reducing the activity of the sweat glands by stopping the nerve transmission to the glands.
Lots of small injections are used to cover the area. Generally for armpits, no anaesthetic is required, but we always apply numbing cream before hand to reduce your discomfort.
Usually the effect begins in a few days and increases for a couple of weeks. Depending on the amount of medication used and individual variation, the effect usually lasts between some months and a year with the average being 6-7 months. Sweating gradually returns after this time. The degree of sweating reduction will also vary with the dose and individual variation.
The treatment protocol recommends an entire vial of 100 units of Anti-Wrinkle Injections to treat excess underarm sweating. We offer a significant volume discount to make the procedure more affordable.
Although there is no down-time after the treatment and you can resume normal activities immediately, there maybe some temporary bruising and soreness which should subside within a few days.
