Hyperhidrosis (Excessive sweating)
If the amount you sweat affects your happiness and the way you live life, it’s time to take action. The hyperhidrosis treatment from REACH can help you control your excessive sweating and boost your self-esteem.
Excessive sweating is actually pretty common, amongst both men and women. It just isn’t discussed often or openly enough. When our bodies are hot, or we are exercising, it is the natural process of the body to produce sweat and cool us down. When we sweat, that sweat evaporates from the surface of the body leaving a cooling effect. If your body is still producing sweat when it is cool then it is excessively sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis.
This can be due to a number of factors:
- No reason at all, its just natural for your body to produce excess sweat
- Due to medication you may be taking
- Due to other undiagnosed health conditions
- Eating spicy food you just can’t handle!
Although there are no “normal” sweating levels, sweating too much definitely impacts the way you live life, and therefore your happiness. It can stop you from playing sports, going out to eat, going to the gym and so on and so forth. Read on to see what we can do to help.
Through a series of very gentle botox injections into both armpits. The injections are very superficial and therefore are relatively pain-free.
After consultation and prep to make up the botox, the treatment itself only takes 10-15 minutes. It is fairly quick and straightforward.
As with all botulinum toxin treatments, it really depends on your body. From experience, the effects of this treatment can last anywhere from 3-12 months.
We do ask you to shave, or trim, any armpit hair so it is easier for our injectors to administer the toxin, and can lead to better results. This is not essential.
You may feel a small stinging sensation in the area for a while after treatment, but nothing other than this.
