9 Dec 2015
Underarm injectables, these are our new saving grace. In fact, nothing can be more damaging to a woman’s self-image than soggy wet armpits. Picture a woman wearing the most gorgeous blouse in summer only to lift up her arms and reveal a rather ‘swamp-ish’ armpit.
Sweating is necessary for our body as it maintains core body temperature. It is our bodies natural means of cooling down.
Underarm injectables – What you need to know?
The human body has 4 million sweat glands distributed throughout all the areas of the skin. The highest concentrations being found on the palms, soles, axillae/ underarms and face.
Why do we sweat?
Sweating has both thermo-regulatory and emotional variants, with daily perspiration it is generally fairly odourless. Alternatively, the odour is controllable thanks to perspiration and underarm sprays/rolls on or sticks. Stress perspiration is very different it has an almost yellow-ish colour which can in fact stain your clothing. It is rather pungent in odour and is usually released when a person is going through a particularly stressful and/or hormonal time. It is also evident in fight or flight situations.
Axillary Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition which involves excessive sweating, more than what is normal and/or required by our body. Axillary Hyperhidrosis is caused by overactivity of the sweat glands. It has been found to be present in only 1 % of the population. Studies revealed that within this 1% a family history is present in 30 to 50 % of patients suggesting a genetic component.
Underarm Injectables – The solution is Botox® underarm:
Botox® underarm is a treatment given by microinjection into the skin, a procedure that takes approximately 20 minutes to perform. This is a procedure where small doses are given into the skin. Botox® blocks the actions of the nerve that supplies the eccrine glands, as a result, it prevents the glands from producing sweat. The effects of the treatment usually last for several months. However, it will eventually wear off meaning that you will need to have treatment once again.
There are certain criteria that will help you determine whether you do indeed have Axillary Hyperhidrosis. It is important to choose a treatment centre wisely. Experience is important, as is ensuring that it is a medical doctor is administering your treatment.
