Excessive Sweat Treatment for Hyperhidrosis

 

 

 

What is it?

 
Micro-amounts of Botox are injected into the muscles as well as the skin of the jawline and sides of the neck. The technique is often referred to as the “The Nefertiti Neck Lift”, so named after the Egyptian queen famously known for her strikingly angled jawline.
 

How does it work?

 
This procedure works in two ways. First, Botox injected into the muscles relaxes the upper platysma muscle along the jaw and neck. This counteracts the natural downward pull on the face as we age. Second, Botox injected into the skin stimulates collagen production, which tightens the pores and lifts the cheeks and jowls.
 

Are there additional benefits to this treatment?

 
Yes. Not only does Botox lift and tighten the skin, but also pores are minimized, skin texture is evened out and the lower face is slimmed. The result is a lifting of the face back to a youthful, oval shape. The look is fresh and natural looking.
 

What happens during a treatment?

 
Botox is injected into the lower jaw and cheek areas using a very fine needle. Generally, the treatment takes about ten minutes. Most patients feel a series of quick stings but discomfort is minimal and brief. Anaesthetic cream can be used to reduce discomfort.
 

When are results visible?

 
Results are often seen quickly, but the full effect takes about 2 weeks. It’s a subtle, yet effective way to lift and define the lower jaw. There is little discomfort and virtually no downtime, and there is little risk of facial expression loss i.e. the frozen look.
 

How long do results last?

 
Results last an average of three to six months after one treatment, and longer with repeat treatments.
 

Can it be combined with other treatments?

 
Yes. One of IYAC’s signature treatments – the Liquid Lift– is a combination of Botox and fillers, two of the clinic’s most popular treatments, designed to treat the lower jaw. This combination treatment fills wrinkles and folds while simultaneously lifting the lower cheek and nasolabial and jowl areas, resulting in a more defined jawline.
 

Who is a good candidate?

 
It’s ideal for anyone with laxity along the jaw and neck – particularly those with marionette lines and jowls starting to form – who does not want to go under the knife.
