If you identify yourself in at least one of the above points, then you are among the 10% of the adult population who suffer from abnormally excessive perspiration. Hyperhidrosis is a disease that is difficult to control, as the symptoms are not necessarily related to heat or exercise. Sweat seeps into clothing and runs from the feet and hands in a totally abnormal excess, which also causes bad odours.
You may have tried all the remedies: deodorants, alum stone, aluminium salts, nothing works! Fortunately, there is today a simple and long-lasting way to fight excessive sweating: the injection of botulinum toxin.
The Clinique aesthetic de la Croix d’Or is pleased to accompany you in your treatment of your sweating problems thanks to aesthetic surgery.
Perspiration is the natural mechanism by which your body cools down. Your nervous system automatically triggers your sweat glands (sweat glands) when your body temperature rises.
In the case of excessive perspiration (hyper sweating) it is the nerves responsible for signalling your sweat glands that are too active. As a result, they misinterpret your need for heat regulation, causing you to sweat too much when your body does not really need it.
To fight this problem, which is most often hereditary, due to menopause, overweight or certain other illnesses, the injection of botulinum toxin is the simplest and most suitable operation. The injection of botulinum toxin allows a very significant limitation of perspiration in the injected areas. Given the cholinergic nerve control, this technique not presenting any particular disadvantage.
The vast majority of areas treated with hyperhidrosis concern the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and under the armpits (axillary region).
During your very first consultation, we will provide you with a quotation and an optimal treatment plan to solve your problems. Your cosmetic surgeon begins by performing a careful examination in order to make a complete diagnosis of your needs. The main task for your doctor is to identify all areas of your body that require treatment with botulinum toxin injections. Once all the areas to be treated have been identified, the operation can begin.
ON THE DAY OF THE INTERVENTION
First of all, your cosmetic doctor makes sure that you have no contraindications. Once the practitioner has carried out his checks, he will ensure that the treatment surface is perfectly clean and that it is rigorously sterilized to prepare you for the procedure.
Now that you are ready, your surgeon performs small injections on the targeted areas of your body affected by hypersudation. The session is almost painless and lasts only 15 to 30 minutes depending on the number of areas treated. Et voilà, it is over!
At the end of the session, there are no noticeable changes. The result of the injection is obtained within 4 to 7 days. Sport is possible after a minimum of 48 hours.
We systematically review the injected patients within 15 days to evaluate the result and make any necessary alterations.
The effect obtained has a duration of effectiveness of 4 to 6 months.
In general, the botulinum toxin injection session for the treatment of hypersudation is almost painless.
The after-effects are relatively simple and easily correctable: small bruises at the injection site may appear, but are spontaneously resolved.
