Wrinkle Relaxing Injections

Botulinum A Toxin can be described as a freeze dried, vacuum stored, purified protein which temporarily relaxes the muscles/ glands which cause wrinkles/ sweating by trimming off a receptor that usually helps pass the message from the nerve to the muscle. The receptor regenerates in 3-6 month when the treatment wears off.

From our late 20’s as we get older, the amount of collagen we produce decreases, which leads us to develop lines and wrinkles. In addition to this, as we use our facial muscles constantly such as for smiling, frowning and laughing, will over a period of time create lines and wrinkles.

Wrinkle Relaxing Injections can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, making the surface of the skin smoother. Wrinkle relaxing injections can be used in a number of areas on the body such as; crows feet, forehead, frown lines, as well as for upper lip lines, gummy smiles and also in the armpits to prevent or reduce excessive sweating. Wrinkle relaxing injections should only be carried out by a medical professional.

Hyperhidrosis – There are two types of hyperhidrosis, these being primary focal hyperhidrosis and secondary generalised hyperhidrosis.

Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis – is not caused by a medical condition, it usually begins in adolescence or under the age of 25. Primary hyperhidrosis affects 3 in 100 people, effecting men and women equally. The excessive sweating occurs in specific parts of the body, including the soles of your feet, palms of hands and the armpits. Hyperhidrosis is bilateral, meaning that you will sweat excessively from both armpits, hands and feet. However, sweating does not usually occur during sleep. Avoiding triggers such as caffeine, spicy foods, stress, tension and anxiety may help with symptoms.

There may be a chance that you are suffering from primary hyperhidrosis. If you can say yes to 2 or more of the criteria below, then hyperhidrosis treatment may be suitable for you, subject to consultation.

• Do you sweat from both armpits?
• Does the sweating affect your daily activities?
• Do you have 1 or more sweating episodes per week?
• Did it start before you was 25 years old?
• Do members of your family suffer with similar symptoms?
• Does the sweating stop during sleep?

Secondary Generalised Hyperhidrosis – is called secondary as it is caused by something else, such as a medical condition like diabetes, thyroids and many more medical conditions, as well side effects of a medication. Compared to primary focal hyperhidrosis which starts in adolescence, secondary hyperhidrosis is sweating on larger areas of the body and starts in adulthood. Sweating usually continues during sleep. In order to prevent secondary hyperhidrosis, the root cause of the problem needs to be identified first. If you think that you may be suffering from secondary hyperhidrosis please seek medical advice from your GP.

Around 80% of clients report a significant improvement within 1 week of having hyperhidrosis treatment. Some clients will require the full 2 weeks to notice full effect. An average treatment duration is 6-7 months, but my last over 12 months. Treatments for hyperhidrosis can be repeated at 6 monthly intervals.
