Here at Nova Aesthetic Clinic, we offer a special type of treatment using Botulin injection to help our clients gain relief from the discomfort of persistent and excessive sweating.
How does Botulin injection address excessive sweating?
When injected into the skin areas producing excessive sweat, Botulin blocks the sympathetic stimulation at the autonomic nervous system. It blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.
Which part of my body can I receive Botulin injection for Hyperhidrosis?
Botulin injection is FDA approved as a treatment for severe underarm sweating. However, our experienced doctors have taken a step further to maximize its use for controlling excessive sweating in some other parts of the body. Do not hesitate to consult us if you are experiencing heavy sweating in any area of your body. We are always willing to help.
How is Botulin injection for Hyperhidrosis administered?
To start with, the overactive sweat gland in the specific part in your underarms is determined. A series of microinjections containing a unique dose (50-100units) of Botulin injection is then given at the localized area in a quick, 10-15 minutes procedure.
We consider the safety of our clients very paramount even in our efforts to help them achieve their skin goals. Our commitment to safety means that:
• We only use Botulin injection from a recognized and trusted supplier, Allergan
• Our experienced doctors double-check every stage of the procedure
• We keep in touch and monitor clients days and weeks after treatment

• It has proven to be 99% effective for sweating in the underarms
We do not recommend the use of Botulin injection for pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers or individuals with any type of neurological disorder.
Different people have different responses to treatment. In a clinical trial, sweat production was reduced by 83% one week after treatment. Furthermore, sweating was reduced by at least half in 95% of patients. Your next treatment can be given when the effects of the first course wear off, this usually happens after 4 to 7 months.
