Excessive sweating treatment
The Excellence Medical and Skincare Clinic provide effective injectable treatment to help reduce excessive sweating. This procedure is also known as hyperhidrosis treatment.
When severe sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants are not working, you may be a suitable candidate for this treatment. The body areas that can commonly experience over active sweat glands are: the under arms, palms, feet and forehead.
Approved injectable product by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. The product is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
Botulinum toxin, is a protein produced by the the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It relaxes muscle by temporary block nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles.
The cosmetic effect of Botulinum toxin was first documented as early as 1989 and was approved by the FDA in 2002. It is now regular used by many, both male and female, as it is less intrusive and less artificial in appearance, than traditional form of treatment such as plastic surgery.

When will I start feeling the results and how long does it last?
You will start seeing and feeling the results at about 1-2 weeks after having the treatment.
The results will last up 6-7 months to 1 year. Your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment. It is recommended to have the treatment every 6 months to receive the best possible results. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you.
What if I decide to stop having the treatment?
If you decide not to have further treatment, your sweating will gradually return to its pre-treated state. The effects of the treatment will gradually wear off, and your underarm sweating will resume.
Where does the sweat go?
Your sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because the sweat simply is not produced in the treated areas. Remember, the rest of your body is free to produce moisture normally.
