Does excessive sweating seem to rule your life at times? At Victoria’s Cosmedi Spa, we have a solution for you.
The condition of excessive underarm perspiration is called hyperhidrosis. Clients with axillary hyperhidrosis cannot wear light colours or certain types of fabrics such as nylon or silk. They find that their clothes can become stained, and fabrics may become ruined. This condition can lead to significant social problems in both private and professional life. Profuse sweating may also cause painful skin maceration, which can result in a secondary infection.
The treatment alternative
You may have suffered from excessive sweating for years in the belief that the only thing you could do was to keep applying antiperspirant and changing your clothes. Current treatments include topical applications and surgical treatments such as removal of the sweat glands which may provide relief for longer periods of time but these methods carry significant risks.
There is now another choice of treatment for this condition…
Target sweating at the source
A series of special injections can be used to target the sweating problem at its source. Once the treatment is administered by Dr Julie Ostberg, the product enters the specific glands in the underarms that are responsible for excessive sweating.
From there, it blocks the release of a chemical that initiates perspiration. The procedure itself takes about 30 minutes. This treatment is also becoming popular for the bride-to-be as it enables her to keep that special wedding dress in pristine condition and avoid embarrassing wedding photos with heavy sweat patches.
