      Treatment of essential hyperhidrosisTerm hyperhidrosis (increased perspiration) is derived from Latin words “hyper” meaning the increase and “hidro” translated as water. Increased or excess perspiration is called hyperhidrosis. It refers to the disorder which manifests with excess spontaneous local perspiration in the areas of armpits, soles and palms. Such perspiration exceeds the normal needs of physiological thermoregulation. It reflects the excessive response of sweat glands to normal stimuli.
      Everybody has at least once experienced an unpleasant feeling of fright and, thus, suddenly “sweating” hands and armpits. These are normal episodic organism reactions to emotional or other stimuli. The appearance of sweat drops on forehead is possible after heavy physical load, palms can sweat due to intense emotional experiences. Human nervous system reacts to emotions with increased heart beat, rapid breathing and increased muscle tone. During stressful organism situations, the sweat glands also react and start to secrete sweat. Such condition is a part of our everyday life and, thus, is not attributed to any pathology.

      Hyperhidrosis

      Hyperhidrosis is a pathological condition. Intensive perspiration can occur in case of even inconsiderable excitement and even due to thoughts. Sometimes it takes only a shake of hand and hands as well as armpits start sweating immediately. Secreted sweat causes fear and, thus, stimulates higher increase in perspiration. Faulty circle is formed and cannot be broken by oneself.

      Such simple-looking problem can grow into serious psychological problems, such as neurosis, depression, various complexes and as often as not burdens the professional activity – in working with computer keyboard, thin instruments, etc. In addition, with the start of bacterial or fungous disease, the unpleasant odour, skin irritation, dermatitis and other skin diseases occur.

      In case of hyperhidrosis, the general increased and local body perspiration conditions are distinguished. The majority of cases of hyperhidrosis are related to idiopathic initial local increased perspiration. The causes of this perspiration are yet unknown, therefore it is called as being of idiopathic origin or essential. Its intensity is conditioned by the amount of acetylcholine in a synaptic gap. Namely this type of perspiration is treated with botulinum toxin injections.

      However, there is another secondary intensified general body perspiration, the causes of which can be diverse – of infectious origin due to various endocrine, neurological and systemic disorders. In this case, it is necessary to diagnose the perspiration causing disease and select treatment.

      Botulinum toxin A injections for treating increased local perspiration

      потоотделение

      Hyperhidrosis is effectively treated with botulinum toxin type A injections. Botulinum toxin is a protein secreted by Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It blocks the mediator acetylcholine secretion in effectors and, thus, blocks the transmission of nervous impulse to sweat glands. Therefore, sweat glands stop secreting perspiration.

      The procedure is safe and performed under ambulatory conditions. The marked points in the projection of sweat glands are injected with botulinum toxin. The duration of procedure – 15-20 minutes. The effect can be noticed within 1-3 days and the peak is achieved within 1-2 weeks after the injections and lasts for 6 to 12 months.

      Contraindications:

      Absolute:

      • Pregnancy
      • Lactation
      • Haemophilia
      • Local skin infection in the area of injection
      • Muscular/nervous system diseases

      Relative:

      • Usage of antibiotics and anticoagulants

The skin becomes smooth and clear and the results are visible immediately!

      I am not a frequent visitor of beauty and aesthetics clinics but I think carefully about where to go if the need arises.

      Their qualified professionals and very pleasant atmosphere is why I always go to Era Esthetic clinic when any problems arise in relation to my body or skin.

      Respectfully,

      Our faces are our voiceless business cards. Moreover, every woman seeks a healthy and flawless look of her skin. I’m no exception. In addition, my work requires me to take special care of my face – quite frequent use of decorative cosmetic products requires proper care of the skin.

      Our faces are our voiceless business cards. Moreover, every woman seeks a healthy and flawless look of her skin. I’m no exception. In addition, my work requires me to take special care of my face – quite frequent use of decorative cosmetic products requires proper care of the skin. So, in order to achieve the results I wanted, I chose the HydraFacial treatment at ERA ESTHETIC clinic. I think you will be curious to learn more about the process as well as the effects that this treatment has. Basically, it is a patented non-invasive skin rejuvenation, deep cleansing and moisturising skin care done by modern aesthetic cosmetology technology – otherwise known as an ‘all-inclusive’ treatment. Today, Hydrafacial is included in the list of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed at prestigious medical clinics and spas all around the world. This procedure has three parts. Firstly, the skin is effectively cleansed; it gets exposed to a vacuum; it’s actively moisturised by different active serums. And all this is done simultaneously, which saves us time. Isn’t that great? The treatment was done by a great cosmetologist and beauty therapist, Alina Mockevičienė, and it lasted for about 45 minutes. You know, the face is quite a sensitive, I would even say intimate, part of our body, so it’s important to choose a specialist you trust; that way you can rest assured that you are in the hands of a professional. I would highly recommend Alina because in her chair I felt super safe and comfortable. I’ll tell you what kind of results I experienced after the first treatment: it restored the elasticity of my skin, as it had been looking rather tired lately. My skin was deep-cleansed. This means the reduced enlarged pores – and, believe me, with my job specifics I’m really not lacking them…The texture and tone of my skin have improved! Before the treatment, I had noticed that my face was somewhat greyish. Another good thing that will become even more important as time goes on is that this treatment slows down the ageing of the skin! And, although I am only 23 years old and the ageing process has not started yet (it usually starts at 25 years), preventive measures are always welcome and the sooner we start taking care of the skin, the more beneficial it will be for us. To tell the truth, if seeking maximum results this kind of treatment should be done once a month or as needed. I can confirm that the treatment did not cause any discomfort; in fact, it stimulated the skin in rather a pleasant way and was relaxing. As Alina would say, it is like being given a small kiss on your face by a kitten – somewhat scratchy, but at the same time very pleasant. I hope that the kitten will kiss you as well, leaving you glowing and even more beautiful!!!

      I am very satisfied and would like to share my feelings about it with you. I found the clinic randomly while in search of a hair removal procedure using the most advanced laser technology. I discovered that Era Esthetic clinic is the only clinic in the Baltic states which uses the Alexandrito laser. This laser ensures very quick and effective results. I am very satisfied with the procedures and really recommend them to everybody. Over time and due to daily stress our skin loses its moisture, brightness and firmness, so I had a consultation with doctor Jurgita Stoškienė, who is qualified to the highest level, and who examined the skin very pleasantly and offered especially effective procedures. The results were obvious after the first procedure. The procedure I often have is HydraFacial, performed by Viktorija and Alina, who are masters of the process. I trust in them and give myself completely into their hands. I understand that regardless of what you are searching for,it is always best to come here, as only here can you find everything in one place – the best specialists, and the latest innovative technologies and hardware. All this is proven over time by the results and excellent service you will experience after going through the doors of the amazing clinic Era Esthetic.
