HYPERHYDROSIS TREATMENT

Put an end to underarm sweat

HYPERHYDROSIS TREATMENTS

Severe underarm sweating is a medical condition known as severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, which involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements for cooling.

Excessive sweating due to hyperhydrosis forces men and women to change their clothes every few hours, limits personal style, ruins fabrics, and erodes self-confidence. Our Practitioners can provide injectable treatment for excessive sweating, and have considerable experience in dealing with hyperhidrosis from the most common areas of the underarms, palms, forehead to even more complicated areas such as upper lip, nose, cheeks and feet.

Excessive sweating is embarrassing. It stains clothes, ruins romance, and complicates business and social interactions. In severe cases, excess sweat can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands.

Common HYPERHYDROSIS Questions

Wrinkle relaxers weaken the injected muscle over time, which leads in turn to a reduction in the overall size. Our Talent will focus the treatment where the three heads of the muscle overlap and at the deep and superficial part of the muscle.

At your consultation, our Talent will examine your facial muscles to determine if you are the right candidate for treatment, as not all clients will see the aesthetic effects of masseter reduction.

This is a simple and quick process lasting approximately 10 minutes, but no longer than half an hour. It involves no downtime so there is no disruption to your lifestyle

The procedure is relatively straightforward. A small volume of botulinum toxin is approved for severe underarm sweating when topical agents don’t work. Botulinum toxin treatment helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.

You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within four weeks of your first treatment. There is a possibility that some sweat glands may be missed, and you may continue to experience some sweating from the untreated areas, we recommend that all clients return for a review appointment 4 weeks following their initial treatment.

Axilla is an anatomy term that refers to the underarm or armpit area. Axillary hyperhidrosis refers to excessive underarm sweating. The exact cause of the condition is disputed. Some experts feel it has to do with the size of the sweat glands, some feel it is related to over-activity of the sweat glands and others feel it is stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system.

Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterised by excessive uncontrollable sweating in excess of the amount required to regulate body temperature. Primary hyperhidrosis has no discernible cause and may involve the axillae (armpits), palms (hands), soles (feet), face, and groin.

The masseter muscle originates from the zygomatic arch (cheekbone) and inserts into the mandible (lower jawbone). It is the primary muscle used during the closing of the jaw, and it is considered one of the strongest muscles in the human body in terms of its size and function.

Problems with the masseter muscle, such as muscle tension, can lead to conditions like temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), which can cause pain and difficulty in jaw movement

Wrinkle relaxers weaken the injected muscle over time, which leads in turn to a reduction in the overall size.

At your consultation, our Talent will examine your facial muscles to determine if you are the right candidate for treatment, as not all clients will see the aesthetic effects of masseter reduction.

Masseter reduction aims at to reduce the size of the masseter muscles in the face. This procedure can be done for aesthetic purposes to achieve a slimmer facial appearance. People may opt for masseter slimming if they have a square-shaped face due to enlarged masseter muscles or if they grind their teeth, leading to hypertrophy (enlargement) of these muscles.

At SKYN, our aim is to provide the most effective results while maintaining a natural appearance. Our wrinkle relaxer treatments will never make you appear ‘frozen’ or unable to create facial expressions – in fact, many of our clients reported being told they looked more approachable and friendly thanks to the diminished appearance of frown lines and furrows!

After your wrinkle relaxer procedure, you can expect to see initial results in just two to seven days and optimal results in two weeks.

Post-wrinkle relaxers, you can return to your normal activities right away. You may experience a mild level of swelling, redness, or bruising at the site of injection, but these may be minimised by taking the following steps:

  • Apply ice to reduce discomfort, swelling and bruising
  • Avoid any heavy exercise or heat-inducing activities for 12 hours
  • Do not apply makeup to the treated area for 12 hours
  • Do not rub or massage the injected area for 24 hours
  • Do not receive facial treatments such as lasers or peels for two weeks post-treatment.

At your appointment, your nurse will provide you with thorough after-care instructions and happily answer any questions you may have.

There are always risks associated with injectables, and it’s important to trust the technician performing your anti-wrinkle treatment. At SKYN, we use a medical-grade injectable at the correct dosage, injected by highly-trained nurses.
