Treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Every morning, most of us spray or roll on some deodorant after our shower and go about our daily business without giving sweat a second thought. But for some men and women across the UK, the daily struggle to keep sweat at bay is relentless and embarrassing. Treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) has never been simpler, and at APSARAS Clinic in Coventry we’re delighted to be helping our patients live happier lives thanks to the treatment we have on offer.
Although this is a common condition – affecting adult patients of all ages – many people suffer for years before seeking treatment, for fear of being embarrassed. Treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) is simple and effective, so there’s no reason to live life in the shadows any longer.
Excessive sweating is usually categorised in two ways: generalised hyperhidrosis or focal hyperhidrosis. If only certain/limited parts of the body are affected, such as the armpits, one or both hands, the feet or face and neck then it’s likely you’re suffering with focal hyperhidrosis. If the entire body is affected, which can be terribly distressing for sufferers, this is known as generalised hyperhidrosis. In most cases of generalised hyperhidrosis, there is a fundamental cause for the condition. This can be an overactive thyroid gland or even a side effect of some form of medication you’ve been prescribed. If this is the case you may well be referred from a GP to seek treatment in the form of Botox injections.
Treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) with Botox
Although the condition can be upsetting for sufferers, treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) is easier than ever, and many men and women are now seeking cosmetic treatment in order to live life free of unsightly marks from extreme sweating. At APSARAS Clinic in Coventry, we offer Botox treatment for excessive sweating. Botox has many cosmetic uses, and is so much more than a wrinkle relaxing injection. Initially developed to help treat medical concerns, Botox has actually been used for decades to help patients for all sorts of physical concerns. In the case of treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis), Botox can be injected into the affected area to paralyse the overactive glands, leaving you sweat free within days.
Treatment is quick and safe, although it isn’t permanent so top-up treatments will be required every 4-6 months, depending on the severity of the patient’s symptoms. There is a fantastic success rate with this form of treatment, and patients report greater self-esteem and improved confidence following on from therapy when treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) with Botox. With treatment times from as little as 30 minutes, it’s easy to see why hundreds of patients are requesting this form of sweat reduction treatment at APSARAS Clinic in Coventry.
Cosmetic doctor Dr. Thevendra – an expert in treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) with Botox – says patients are clearly relieved and delighted after their treatment. He says:
“There’s no doubt this form of treatment has a remarkable impact on a patient’s self-esteem. It’s effective and quick, meaning patients can get back to work or their family within an hour. I’m delighted to see my patient’s weeks and months after treatment confident and happy in their new found sense of freedom from the constant worry of excessive sweating.”
