Do you suffer from excessive sweating (also known as Hyperhidrosis)? If so, it can be treated successfully at The Goldsmith Clinic in Chesterfield with the use of Botulinum Toxin (Botox). Hyperhidrosis can affect the whole body or just certain areas, like the underarms, palms of hands and soles of the feet. These areas of the body have a high concentration of sweat producing glands known as eccrine glands. Botulinum Toxin (commonly known as Botox) is a naturally occurring medicine which when skillfully injected by a qualified practitioner, like Theresa, can block the signals from the nerve endings which tell the sweat glands to work.
Toxin treatment for Hyperhidrosis should only be administered by a fully trained medical practitioner, qualified and experienced to undertake advanced Botox treatments. Following an in-depth consultation with Theresa, our medically qualified prescribing nurse practitioner, an effective treatment plan will be devised for your specific needs. The minimally invasive and effective treatment involves small injections of the toxin through a fine needle into the affected areas. The treatment can give up to 14 months of relief from sweating depending on the area treated.
Treatment Time: 45 minutes
Results: The muscle relaxant injections normally take effect after about 5-7 days.
Downtime: You can carry on with your day as normal immediately following the treatment, although you are advised not to drink alcohol, exercise excessively or use saunas and steam rooms for 24 hours following treatment. For the purpose of your comfort, it’s wise to wear loose fitting clothes to prevent rubbing on recently treat skin.
