Treatments for Excessive Sweating
At Vitality Medi Spa, we understand how uncomfortable it can be to live with hyperhidrosis and offer a number of treatments that provide ongoing relief from the symptoms of this condition. Many of our patients have been trying unsuccessfully to manage the symptoms by using strong or clinical strength antiperspirants, frequently changing their clothes, avoiding certain fabrics or articles of clothing, or even putting absorbent materials under their armpits or other areas. When these tactics no longer provide relief, using BOTOX®, Xeomin® or Dysport® can help counteract the symptoms of severe underarm sweating.
Vitality Medi Spa is the only medi spa in Halifax with a dedicated, in house medical aesthetics team. Led by Dr. van Aardt, President of the Canadian Association of Aesthetic Medicine, we provide clinical treatment for hyperhidrosis through use of neuromodulators. Injecting neuromodulators into the affected areas temporarily blocks the signals from the nerves that prompt the sweat glands to activate. By cutting off the signal at the site of the injection for weeks to months at a time, the excessive production of sweat stops. Your body will continue to produce sweat elsewhere as normal, but you will be free to stop worrying about the areas you are most self-conscious about. This treatment provides a long-term but not permanent solution for hyperhidrosis.
