Botox not only for wrinkles! Excessive sweating treatment in Manchester.

Botox is made from human proteins and injected into the muscles of the face to smooth out wrinkles. Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, which makes them unable to contract. This temporary paralysis relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a more youthful appearance.

Did you know that botox is not only applied to the face?

Botox is mainly associated with facial treatments, although few people know that it actually has a number of other uses. One of them is the treatment of excessive sweating. Now available in Manchester!

When a small dose of botulinum toxin is injected into the skin, the nerves that supply the exocrine glands are blocked. This prevents them from secreting sweat. It is currently the most widely used and recommended method of treating excessive sweating of armpits, hands or feet.

The treatment itself takes a few minutes and you can return to your daily activities afterwards. The effect is visible after several days.

What to do after the treatment?

After the treatment, the patient can return to daily activities. However, it is necessary to remember not to press the areas to which the preparation has been applied. It is also necessary to limit physical exercise for the first 2 days. It is necessary to avoid sudden changes of temperature for up to a week, resigning for example from a sauna or a cryochamber. The effects appear already after several days and last from 6 to 8 months.

After the treatment slight redness may appear, which will disappear on its own after a few days, as well as pain in the place of botox application, which will disappear after a few hours. Due to the length of time the effects last after only one session, the preparation is appreciated as an extremely effective means of fighting hyperhidrosis. If the procedure is performed correctly, the patient does not have to be afraid of side effects.
