Sweating is a normal function that helps the body to regulate its temperature when it becomes too hot and occurs when we experience hot temperatures, exercise, spicy food, undergo emotional stress, or suffer from a fever or illness. However, some people experience excessive sweating, a common condition known as Hyperhidrosis, which is when overactive sweat glands cause the body to perspire even if it doesn’t need to cool down.
Affecting 2% of the population, Hyperhidrosis can be highly embarrassing and can cause sufferers to feel self-conscious and anxious if left untreated, often impacting day to day activities. With millions of sweat glands all over our bodies, the most common problem areas tend to be the armpits, hands, feet and forehead.
How Imperial Aesthetics’ Excessive Sweating Treatment Can Help
Overactive sweat glands can cause unnecessary anxiety and distress. Our quick and simple Hyperhidrosis Treatment is the ideal option if you need a temporary solution to keep excessive sweating under control. Lasting between six and nine months, this treatment is becoming a popular choice for those who wish to regain their confidence and help to eliminate sweat from a particular body area.
Suitable for both men and women of all ages, our treatment uses Botox to help to reduce and relieve excess sweating. During the procedure, we’ll administer a small amount of Botox to the affected body area, this will relax the nerve signals and prevent the sweat glands from producing sweat. After the treatment is complete, you will notice that your sweating will start to reduce, leaving you sweat free.
We’re proud to offer our clients a professional and personal service that begins with an initial face to face consultation to discuss your requirements. Our team of medically and Harley Street trained experts will create a bespoke treatment plan based exclusively on your individual needs.
