WE PREVENT SWEATING BY TARGETING THE SOURCE
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition that affects millions of people around the world. Uncontrolled sweating can occur in various part of the body including the hands, feet or underarms.
Although high temperatures or stress can increase perspiration, they don’t cause hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis may be inherited trait or physiological condition that stops the body from properly regulating its temperature.
But don’t worry excessive sweating can be managed by targeting the sweating at the source. At Courtenay Cosmetic Clinic our highly experienced nurses treat many clients with differing degrees of hyperhidrosis using BOTOX® and DYSPORT® a highly effective, quick and lasting treatment.
HOW IT WORKS
suffered in silence
for more than ten years …
you don’t have too!
BOTOX® and DYSPORT® is a natural, purified protein that temporarily blocks the release of a chemical that signals perspiration, helping to reduce excessive sweating. The active ingredient is derived from bacteria in much the same way penicillin is derived from mould. It is manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions.
BOTOX®or DYSPORT® can be used to treat excessive underarm sweating by targeting sweating at its source. Once injected by our registered nurses, tbe BOTOX® or DYSPORT® enters the specific glands in the underarms responsible for excessive sweating. There, it blocks the release of a chemical that signals the body to produce perspiration.
BOTOX® is a prescription-only medicine and is registered for the treatment of severe axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating).
