Perspiration Reduction

Sweating is a very common natural phenomenon. High temperatures, vigorous exercises, stress, physically demanding work and various other factors make us sweat. Sweat generally results in wetness of the body and is unfortunately accompanied by odour. 

Some people, however, tend to sweat profusely even when just sitting idly. That is, there is no particular reason for them to sweat like high temperatures or physically demanding activities. This situation results in a loss of water from the body which is definitely a bad sign! Also, factor in the odour and the wetness of the body which results in multiple changes of clothes throughout the day. In public places, this can be a cause of embarrassment as well. 

Vanity Cosmetic Clinic offers an excellent solution to counter this problem of excessive sweating: Perspiration Reduction.

What Is
perspiration reduction?

Heavy sweating, also often referred to as Hyperhidrosis, is a medical condition which results in loss of water from the body. This is not only responsible for body odour, but heavy water loss from the body may result in dehydration which may pave the way for further medical issues.

Perspiration reduction uses Botox in order to minimize and control excessive sweating from the arm-pits, hands, feet and even the face.

How does
botox work to reduce sweating?

Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox) is a neurotoxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum.

Botox is injected in very small quantities wherever one finds excessive sweating like the face, arm-pits, hands, feet or any other body part. After being injected into the specific muscle, the nerve signal to that particular muscle is blocked thus halting the secretion of sweat.

This muscle is thus temporarily paralyzed; relaxing it. 

Botox is an excellent choice for hyperhidrosis as it helps control the secretion of sweat.
