Hyperhydrosis

HyperhydrosisHyperhydrosis or excessive sweating can be controlled or eliminated by three methods.

Temporary :

Bot – Toxin can be injected into the skin where there is excessive sweating leading to a reduction of sweating for 3-5 month. The cost averages around $400-600 a treatment depending on what areas are injected and how significant the sweating is.

Permanent :

Laser Treatment :
A laser can be introduced under the skin and be used to produce heat and destroy the sweat glands. A small 3 mm incision is required to gain access to the area, and tumescent anaesthesia is used to numb the area. The process is similar to laser lipolysis except that the skin is targeted rather than fat and no suction is used.

Mechanical Removal:
The apocrine or sweat glands can be removed via direct suction of the underlying surface of the skin.

Cost – eg axilla $3000

Cosmetic PhilosophyCosmetic Philosophy

Cosmetic Philosophy

Our cosmetic philosophy is to create a natural looking younger version of yourself. We aim to enhance existing features, replace areas of loss and rewind the changes of time. If any cosmetic enhancement is immediately discernible or obviously unnatural then we regard the job as being poorly performed. The onlooker should always be wondering whether the look is natural or enhanced. Our aim is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of all the cosmetic procedures and techniques available. This includes procedures I do not use but may be appropriate to your circumstances. These will be presented to you showing the expected benefit and a cost comparison with other procedures and treatments
