Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, causes hundreds of Toronto-area men and women to seek help at Bertucci MedSpa in Woodbridge, Vaughan, each year. Hyperhidrosis is a significant problem that can interfere with school, work, and self-esteem. This common problem can often be treated successfully with focal injections of a neuromodulator, amongst other options. Dr. Bertucci and his team of dermatologists can use an injectable treatment for these and other purposes in areas such as the underarms, hands, feet, face and scalp.
Get to KnowDr. Bertucci
As a globally renowned, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Vince Bertucci has devoted his career to enriching the lives of people from all walks of life. Though he is a respected innovator, researcher, and educator, his patients are his highest priority. He welcomes each visitor with an a detailed consultation process and works collaboratively with them to develop a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan.
At Bertucci MedSpa, our dermatologists and patients alike often prefer a neuromodulator product that is also used as a wrinkle-smoothing injectable for treating excessive sweating. The active ingredient in these products temporarily blocks nerve signals that stimulate the body to produce sweat, resulting in noticeably drier treatment areas. Proven safe and effective for this purpose, several quick injections once or twice yearly is enough to keep excessive sweating at bay.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Perspiration occurs when the brain sends signals through the nerves to the sweat glands telling the glands to produce sweat. The neuromodulator injectable works by disrupting these signals, preventing the message from getting through and thus reducing sweating. While sweating is essential to regulate the body’s temperature, there are millions of sweat glands on the human body. The treatment affects only a handful of these glands, making it as safe as it is effective. Over time, the active ingredient will wear off and be naturally metabolised by the body. Most patients only need to come in for treatment about twice yearly and sometimes less frequently.
Treatment with a neuromodulator injectable may indeed be right for you if you’ve been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis or if your sweating is excessive enough to regularly soak your clothing or cause you embarrassment or discomfort and if you’ve failed to respond to over-the-counter remedies. A neuromodulator injectable is well-tolerated by nearly everyone and is considered one of the most effective temporary solutions for hyperhidrosis. One of our dermatologists will review the various treatment options with you and formulate a customised treatment plan to meet your unique needs.
What Can I Expect?
Your hyperhidrosis treatment is a relatively brief in-office procedure. Your practitioner uses a fine needle to administer a series of injections, each of which lasts only a moment. After your appointment, you may immediately return to your normal activities. Side effects are typically minimal and limited to the injection sites. They can include itchiness, tenderness, redness, and bruising. Over the following weeks, you should notice your sweating gradually diminishing, with measurable results you can enjoy for months.
