Dr Wines is an approved provider and trainer for the injection of anti-sweating agent into the armpits to prevent sweating. Excessive sweating can cause embarrassment and is distressing. In those severely affected it can affect job performance and can alter social activities. Many men and women not severely affected elect to have this procedure for comfort.
What can I expect from this treatment?
A local anesthetic cream can be applied prior to injection. Tiny micro-needles are used to inject the substance into the armpit. A scratching sensation rather than a needle prick is usually felt because the syringes are small. The procedure takes about 30mins. You can return to normal activities after the treatment.
How long does it last?
Most patients remain sweat free for 8 to 12 months after injection.
Is it safe?
The procedure is not recommended if you are pregnant or lactating. There are no long term reported side effects. With regular treatment the amount needed is reduced and longevity of the product increased.
