Hyperhidrosis

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Excessive sweat can certainly get in the way of living your life to the fullest. The constant worry over large sweat patches showing through your clothing or sweaty palms when shaking someone’s hand can leave you feeling anxious and frustrated.


If you cannot manage the rate of sweating across your hands and body and feel that it is starting to impact your life negatively, you could have hyperhidrosis. To help you alleviate the distress of hyperhidrosis, we offer anti-wrinkle injections. It is an incredible way to manage sweaty armpits and the condition of hyperhidrosis.

What are Sweaty Armpits?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. While we all perspire depending on our level of activity or the heat of summer, it is when the use of antiperspirants and basic hygiene cannot control the rate at which we sweat that it becomes a problem.


Along with the inability to manage sweaty underarms, hyperhidrosis can also cause sweaty palms that one cannot keep dry, perspiration that seeps through clothing, and discomfort caused by continuous sweating. Fortunately there is a solution, and it starts with anti-wrinkle treatments we can provide.

Do I Have Hyperhidrosis?

Suppose perspiration affects your ability to live a normal and healthy quality of life despite basic hygiene and the use of antiperspirants. In that case, it is important to see a practitioner for a diagnosis. Once you have received a diagnosis, you can learn of the available treatments and which method is best for your needs.

How is Hyperhidrosis Diagnosed and Treated?

While many have tried natural remedies and antiperspirants to curb excess perspiration, these methods are simply ineffective against hyperhidrosis.

To determine whether you are affected by this condition, it is important to schedule an appointment with your doctor. They will perform lab and sweat tests to identify the function of the targeted sweat glands. Along with the physical tests, a medical history is assessed to create the appropriate treatment plan for patients.

 

Hyperhidrosis can be treated with the following methods:

  • Topical agents
  • Medication
  • Surgery
  • Anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle Injectables as Alternative Therapy for Hyperhidrosis

For patients who do not want to have surgery or where medication has failed, anti-wrinkle injections can provide much-needed relief. Our anti-wrinkle injectables contain botulinum toxin, which is administered into the affected sweat glands, where it inhibits acetylcholine release, which is responsible for overactive sweat glands and the surrounding nerves. By controlling acetylcholine, it can reduce the occurrence of excessive perspiration.

Are Anti-wrinkle Injections for Hyperhidrosis Safe?

Yes, where hyperhidrosis is diagnosed, anti-wrinkle injections can provide a non-invasive and effective form of therapy to control overactive sweat glands. At Bayside Cosmetic Medicine Clinic, we offer our patients individualized injectables to curb the problems caused by ongoing perspiration.


Our treatments are performed by our experienced and specialized cosmetic practitioners, who will perform an evaluation and discuss the problems you are experiencing before the anti-wrinkle treatment is administered.


Once you are ready for treatment, a topical anaesthetic is applied to the area and the anti-wrinkle injections are injected into the problematic sweat glands. The procedure is completed within minutes, and you will notice an immediate difference in the rate and the amount of perspiration produced.

Are There Side Effects From Anti-wrinkle Injections for Hyperhidrosis?

It is important that you seek anti-wrinkle injections for excessive perspiration from a certified and experienced cosmetic specialist. This will ensure that the appropriate steps are followed and you receive successful results from your treatment.


After the injectable is administered, you may experience mild discomfort at the site of the injection. This includes slight swelling and bruising. For inflammation and swelling, apply an ice pack to the area. These symptoms should subside within 24 hours. If you notice increased irritation, swelling, and inflammation, it is best to consult with your doctor to ensure you are not developing an allergic reaction.

Why Receive Anti-wrinkle Injections for Underarm Sweating?

The production of large amounts of sweat can leave you feeling embarrassed, anxious and constantly trying to find ways of managing the problem. With the safety and effectiveness of our anti-wrinkle injectables, we can help restore the quality of your life without being concerned about perspiring armpits or sweaty palms.
