3 years ago By Ästhetik Rx Injections

Hyperhidrosis can be a bothersome and potentially life-altering medical condition. Fortunately, a treatment option known as Botox injections might help control the condition. Asthetik Rx, a medical spa in Bowmanville, invites prospective clients to read the following short blog discussing the malady and how Botox might prove effective in eradicating it.

Hyperhidrosis Overview
Hyperhidrosis is the official medical terminology for excessive or uncontrolled perspiration. Though many might not have heard of the disease, said ailment is relatively common. The Canadian Dermatology Association estimates that three to four percent of the nation's population, or roughly 950,000 are stricken with this malady.

Types Of Hyperhidrosis
There are two different forms of the disease, primary focal and secondary generalized.

Primary Focal
This manifestation of the ailment mostly begins during childhood and typically impacts bodily regions like the underarms, hands, feet, face and forehead.

Secondary Generalized
Such differentiation is typically caused by some type of external condition. This form typically develops during adulthood, occurs throughout the body and even happens while the afflicted subject is sleeping.

The primary focal type typically occurs because sweat-stimulating nerves located in the skin become overactive. Medical researchers opine that the condition might run in families but has no known underlying biological cause. Secondary generalized hyperhidrosis is often elicited by various health issues or the ingestion of specific medications.

If left untreated, the condition could be a source of major embarrassment for the afflicted individual and pose significant hygiene issues. Moreover, the ailment could increase one's risk of developing skin infections and make the execution of certain activities more difficult.

How Botox Injections Can Help?
Botox injections are believed to block perspiration-inducing nerves for durations lasting anywhere from six months to a full year.

Ästhetik Rx Medical Spa in Bowmanville performs Botox injections. The procedure is simple and involves the icing or anesthetizing of the skin before each impacted region is injected. Typically, most patients respond fairly well and experience minor side effects such as pain at the injection sights. However, said occurrences usually dissipate after a short time. Contact us or book an appointment online to learn more about this treatment.
