Plumpness and vibrancy in the skin slowly diminishes as we get older. It is a natural part of the aging process, in which we gradually lose volume in facial muscle, fat and tissue. When this happens, the overlying skin sags and wrinkles start to form, affecting our appearance.
Wrinkle reduction injections A non-surgical treatment for light to medium depth facial lines, this cosmetic injection relaxes the muscles by blocking nerve signals and reducing muscular contractions.
Hyperhidrosis is characterised by abnormal and excessive perspiration. This is a chronic disorder that affects up to 3% of the population, where some adults sweat up to 14 litres of perspiration in just one day.
Sweating is the human body’s way to regulate temperature and cool itself down. Our skin can be thought of as a ‘third kidney’ as waste is eliminated from the skin daily. The moisture that leaves our bodies in this way contains sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, calcium, urea, ammonia, uric acid – causing the salty taste on the skin once all the water has evaporated. Furthermore other toxins like lead, copper, zinc and mercury that are introduced into our bodies by way of environmental pollution are eliminated as well.
Most people sweat when they experience physical heat and emotional stress. Generally, emotionally induced sweating occurs on the palms of hands, soles, armpits, and sometimes the forehead, while physical heat-induced sweating occurs throughout the body.
For those who suffer hyperhidrosis, however, sweating can occur at any time – even when the body is cool. It is located most prominently at the underarms.
