So many things to love about Australia but the summers are what makes you fall madly, deeply in love.

There is a downside to summer, the sweating and the extra wrinkles that always appear! Those extra lines are due to damage and aging caused by the sun. We often squint when out in the sun, causing crows feet and of course a large majority of us either sweat off our sunscreen or never wear enough!

How do muscle relaxants such as Botox & Dysport assist sweating?

Muscle Relaxants such as Botox & Dysport are injected into the skin to treat symptoms if sever seating in areas such as the underarms, palms and forehead when medicines used on the skin topically do not work well enough.

Botox completed a clinical study on 104 patients suffering from severe underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis). 84 (81%)out of the 104 patients who were treated with Botox achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating.

Whilst it may vary from individual to individual, following just one treatment you will experience drier underarms or palms for up to 6 months.

Particularly for the underarms, you nurse injector will make 10 to 15 injections into the area through a very fine needle.  A significant reduction in underarm sweating should be visible within 4 weeks of your first treatment.

The same theory applies to any other area you might receive muscle relaxants such as the forehead. Approximately, 4 weeks following your Botox or Dysport treatment in your forehead you will notice your forehead will not be beading with sweat!

It has also been found that use of muscle relaxants on the forehead improves skin! Why? Because you don’t sweat as much!

You are an ideal candidate for this treatment if you relate to any of the following statements:
I change my clothes more than twice a day due to my sweating.
I carry supplied such as extra clothes, antiperspirants, powers or towels to help manage the symptoms of my excessive sweating,
I use prescription antiperspirants, powders or deodorants to control my sweating.
I spend more than 3 hours a day dealing with my under arm sweat.
The sweating interferes with my daily activities.
