Skin resurfacing treatments use various techniques to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and promote collagen production.
Laser tattoo removal uses high-intensity light to break up the ink particles in the skin, which are then naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body.
Neuromodulators like Botox Research shows that Botox can be a safe and effective way to reduce sweating in the face, head, armpits, hands and feet.
Botox, or onabotulinumtoxina, is a purified protein that can be injected into the skin to temporarily block the secretion of chemicals that cause sweat.
Injections are made just below the surface of the skin, and although the needles are small, local anesthesia is used to numb the area.
Botox has been shown to decrease sweating by up to 82-87 percent within 2 to 4 days of the initial treatment.
The effects generally last 3 to 6 months but can last up to 16 months in rare cases. The duration of efficacy may increase with subsequent injections.
On average, additional Botox injections are needed every 6 months and are 80 to 90% effective for palmer (hand) sweating.
