Excessive sweating, or Hyperhidrosis, is a condition characterised by sweating beyond the bodies physiological need regulating body temperature. In patients with overactive sweat glands, botulinum toxin injections can be used to alleviate this stubborn disorder.
A series of tiny injections are made in the targeted area that block the release of a chemical that signals the perspiration. The injections takes up to 40 minutes and is a walk in-walk out procedure. The procedure is considered very safe.
There is little to no downtime with this procedure. You can bathe, shower, drive or go back to work immediately afterward. For more information, read here.
Patients generally notice the benefits of this treatment option after just 1 week. Effects last, on average, 8 months.*Disclaimer - Results may vary from patient to patient.
At Cosmos Clinic, we offer a non-surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis that delivers long-lasting improvements. It is ultimately a non-invasive procedure that mimics the results of an Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy, which is quite invasive.
Anti-sweating injections are an effective means of treating underarm glands that cause excessive sweating. Used to treat localised areas of sweating e.g. underarms.
