We understand how embarrasing excessive perspiration can be. It can make you feel as though you are on your own, and affect both your professional and social life.
At Caci, we can treat excessive sweating or "hyperhidrosis" using Botox®.
Botox® temporarily stops the message between the nerves and the sweat gland in the area that has been treated - underarms for example. After a period of months the message system is restored and the sweating will begin to return.
Treatment with Botox® is simpler than you might think. The treatment itself takes 10-15 minutes, but we allow 45 minutes for your first appointment. This gives you time to ask as many questions as you like, and then we can perform a 'minor's test' to find out exactly where the sweat glands lie. This simple test uses corn starch and iodine to define the area that needs to be treated.
Once this is completed the nurse or doctor can inject the Botox® where it is required. This takes just a few minutes. The treatment involves multiple tiny injections in the affected area that enter only the skin. Most people find the treatment a bit uncomfortable rather than painful.
You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within two weeks of your treatment with Botox®. Most people get a greater than 80% reduction in perspiration for around seven months, although for some it may be less. Caci have seen very good results in clients who have been treated with Botox®, with feedback that the treatment has been life changing for them.
A reasonable amount of Botox® is required for effective treatment – much more than is required to treat wrinkles. Please visit your nearest Caci for a complimentary consultation and quote.
