Men are increasingly asking for anti-sweat
procedures using BOTOX® to freeze the
sweat glands and stop perspiration. For many men,
hyperhidrosis adds an extra level of stress to the daily commute,
meetings and their personal and working relationships. Botox
offers a practical, cost effective solution and produces excellent
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a very
common condition, which has two main types. Focal
hyperhidrosis is the more common type and involves excessive
sweating on the feet, hands, armpits and occasionally, the face.
Generalised hyperhidrosis is less common.
Excessive sweating affects about 4% of the western
population; it often interferes with the individual's life by
causing physiological problems, such as cold and clammy hands,
dehydration, and skin infections secondary to maceration of the
skin, as well as emotional consequences due to embarrassment,
limiting daily activities, interfering with interpersonal
relationships, necessitating frequent changes of clothes, etc.

The benefits of BOTOX® Injections
hyperhidrosis by Botulinum Toxin can offer a life-changing solution
for patients. By injecting low doses of BOTOX® into the underarm, for example, it can
reduce the transition of impulses and thus sweating activity
by temporarily blocking the nerves that stimulate sweating for
three to eight months.
BOTOX® injections offer a safe, approved and
non-surgical solution to the treatment of wrinkles. BOTOX® is a temporary solution and its
effects are fully reversible. Botox injections are quick and
convenient to administer
(typically taking 20 minutes).
Type of BOTOX® injections
We use BOTOX® Cosmetic injections by Allergan in
all of our BOTOX®
treatments. BOTOX® is a purified
protein and the injections are an extremely safe procedure.
These injections use a fine needle and a small dose of BOTOX®, which is injected into a targeted
area of muscle or muscle groups to cause temporary muscle
relaxation. The actual procedure will take just five to ten
minutes and involves a small number of injections.
