Stop that Sweat!

Stop that Sweat!

Dysport is not only used for the face, it can treat multiple areas and can be used to treat various medical conditions. It is most commonly used to treat excessive sweating. It is estimated that 3 in 100 Australians suffer from Hyperhidrosis which means that they sweat abnormally or without reason unlike sweating during exercise or due to heat. The usual areas for this condition are the hands, feet, armpits and face. Hyperhidrosis can cause people to sweat through their clothes, drip sweat and causes annoying stains and smells. This can cause low self esteem, however muscle relaxant can help you regain your confidence!

Causes and Effects

This condition can be caused by the nerves in the area that is prone to sweating becoming overactive. This leads them to trigger the sweat glands when there is no need for the body to cool down. Hyperhidrosis can be triggered particularly when you are nervous or stressed and can also exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema and tinea. This can cause a great mental impact on sufferers, leading to increased anxiety and depression. 

How does it work? 

The injected muscle relaxant relaxes the muscles in the area creating the excess sweat by blocking the nerves that activate your sweat glands. These nerves are what trigger your body to cool down when its temperature rises. If you have this condition, these nerves are overactive. The injection of muscle relaxant practically paralyzes these nerves and so they can not signal your glands to produce sweat. 

At the appointment 

You can come in to discuss your query or condition at one of our complimentary consultations. One of our experienced Doctors will locate the glands that are creating the excess sweat. This area will then be injected with anti wrinkle injections which will relax the glands. After the treatment you may experience some bruising or swelling where this was injected as these areas are sensitive and prone to bruising however this will disappear in a few days.
