Reduced sweating and greater confidence.

1. In a nutshell what is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition of increased and excessive sweating. If left undiagnosed and untreated it can cause emotional and social distress.

Sweating is a natural function to keep our bodies at an average temperature. Sweating increases when we exercise, when we are stressed or nervous and when we are hot.

If you find that you are sweating excessively during normal daily activities, having to hide it and take precautions such as showering to prevent sweating, you may have hyperhidrosis.

There are two types of Hyperhidrosis; Primary and Secondary.

2. What causes Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis does not have an obvious cause and most people suffering from it are healthy.

Primary Hyperhidrosis is where sweating is believed to be a problem with part of the nervous system which controls how we sweat.

Secondary Hyperhidrosis is where there is a cause such as; anxiety, reaction to medication, pregnancy, menopause, infection, hypoglycemia and hyperthyroidism.

4. How can Hyperhidrosis be treated?

At Dental & Skin we treat Hyperhidrosis with Botox (Botulinum toxin A).

Botox is a safe and convenient way to treat excessive sweating. It prevents sweating by blocking the chemical that produces sweat in the sweat glands.

5. In a nutshell what is Botox?

Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a skin treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and in doing so prevents the signs of ageing.

Botox is a quick and convenient treatment to smooth out those lines without any need for surgery.

Botox has become a massively popular treatment all over the world, with 6 million treatments being carried out every year.

Botox is injected into the muscular tissue, and can only be administered by a trained doctor.

6. How long do results last for?

The range of time that results last for does vary between patient to patient.

Most Botox treatments last between 2 and a half to 4 months.

7. Which areas can be treated?

At Dental & Skin the areas that we treat with Botox are: frown lines, forehead lines, crows feet, lower eyelid wrinkles, bunny lines, lip lines, chin, marionettes, gummy smile, jaw line reduction and axillary hyperhidrosis.

8. Are there risks or side effects?

There is always a risk of side effects with every treatment and Botox is no exception. However, possible side effects are short lived and not harmful.

In one to five percent of cases, there can be mild drooping of the eyelid or eyebrow, which usually goes away within two weeks. Only a very few patients experience slight bruising.

9. Post Treatment Advice/Care

After treatment patients can carry on with their normal daily routine.

We would advise patients to avoid heavy work outs for 24 hours and to avoid rubbing the treated area, this will avoid spreading the Botox to other areas of the face.

Patients can wear make-up straight away after having Botox treatment.

We would advise patients who have an event coming up, to book in for Botox at Dental & Skin 3-4 weeks before the event.

10. What are the different brands of Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A)?

Azzalure

Azzalure is one of the oldest and most common brands of Botox, it has been available in the UK from the 90s and approved for cosmetic use in 2009.

Azzalure is most commonly used to prevent and treat the development of frown lines.

Bocouture

Bocouture is marketed under the brand name Xeomin, and has been available in the UK since 2008. Bocouture claims to be an advanced type of Botox Type A, due to that antibodies do not form when it is injected in high does. This means it has the advantage of longer lasting results.

Vistabel

Vistabel is the first type of Botox Type A to receive a cosmetic license in this country, and the first to receive a license when treating the crows feet. This type of Botox, like the rest works by preventing nerve endings sending a message to the muscles telling them to contract.

Dysport

This type of Botox is manufactured by a French company called Ipsen, and has been around in the UK since the 90s gaining a cosmetic license in 2009. Dysport is marketed under the brand name Azzalure.

11. Can everyone have Botox?

We find that most patients are suitable to receive Botox treatment. However, Botox can not be carried out for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Botox can also not be carried out on patients who have diseases related to muscle activity or, who have bleeding disorders.
