Botox for excess underarm sweating (hyperhydrosis) at Pearl Clinic, Dublin 2

Excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis is a problem that causes awkward social situations and is sometimes accompanied by bad odor. Sufferers may try many topical treatments to control the problem, but in some cases this is not sufficient, and when the problem is persistent it may restrict clothing choices and can even lead to avoidance of certain social situations.

Botox for sweating or hyperhidrosis treatment at Pearl Clinic, Dublin 2, involves small injections of Botox into the skin in the underarm region, which causes temporary blockage of the sympathetic nerves that stimulate the unwanted sweat production in the sweat glands. This leads to considerable reduction in sweat production in this area, and will generally allow the individual to be comfortable in any situation, and can transform lifestyle for many people.

How is Botox used for hyperhidrosis?

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin, which is produced by the anaerobic bacterium clostridium botulinum. It hinders the nerve endings of the motor endplates. A few drops of Botox are injected through a very small needle into the skin of each underarm. This procedure does not hamper normal activity but heavy exercise should be avoided for a few hours. Underarm sweating decreases by up to 90% after the first few days and full effect can be seen within one week. Sweating at night is also seen to considerably decrease after the use of Botox hyperhidrosis treatment. Odor associated problems should also decrease. Most patients obtain the benefit of dryness with one treatment of Botox for six to ten months. After that the treatment has to be repeated.

Costs for excess sweating treatment at Pearl Clinic, Dublin 2, start from €350, but most cases will need somewhat higher doses, and may cost up to €550, with this being effective for most individuals for 6- 9 months.

Botox for tooth clenching, grinding, bruxing and ‘square’ jaw reduction at Pearl Dental and Facial Aesthetics Clinic

As the recession continues, and stress levels increase, we as dentists are seeing more and more patients complaining of chronic grinding or clenching of the teeth, often with associated complications such as headaches, cracked or broken teeth, or excessive tooth wear. Additionally, the overuse of the chewing muscles (the Masseters) leads to bulking up of these muscles, often leading to a square facial appearance. Most women consider a square jaw to be rather severe and masculine, and an oval shaped face is generally considered to be more feminine. This is known as masseter hypertrophy or more commonly, square jaw.

Injection of a muscle relaxant into the muscle can be used for facial contouring / sculpting, and by weakening the masseter muscle, can give a softer angle to the jaw. This is a highly successful, non-surgical way to beautifully contour the lower face to create a slimmer, more feminine jaw, or to manage the detrimental effects of excessive tooth grinding.

Visible effects take place within 2-4 weeks, and full effect is seen in 2-3 months. The effects of such muscle relaxing treatments usually last for 6-12 months, depending on the individual, and may be longer if 2 treatments are given. The treatment is quick, relatively painless, and has few adverse side effects, and costs in the region of €300- 450.

What has this to do with dentistry? Plenty my friends! How many of you would frame a masterpiece in a tatty old frame from the junk shop? Much the same with a smile. If you spend lots of time and money perfecting and enhancing your smile, for some people, a little work on the frame can do wonders! At our studio on Nassau Street,we offer these services as a complement to our dental treatments, and are of course fully trained to do so. Contact us for more information, or follow this link for information on how these treatments work.

What makes a dentist the right person to carry out such treatments? That’s a simple one to answer. A dentist is specifically and intensively trained in the anatomy of the face, and spends his/ her time dealing solely with this region. They also spend considerable amounts of time providing injections in this most delicate of areas, and as such are highly skilled in their injection techniques. Because some of these aesthetic treatments in the lip region can be quite uncomfortable, it is often an advantage to be numb before treatment commences, and being that the anaesthetic injections required are standard dental procedures, who better to undertake such treatment?

Finally, as dentists we are often involved in the cosmetic improvement of a patients smile, and therefore have an acute awareness of symmetry, and ideal aesthetic requirements, and as such are able to advise on the most appropriate enhancements, and the limitations thereof, for each individual case.

Muscle relaxing injections for the forehead, brow and eye regions start from €250 for a single region, with Dermal fillers available from €300- €350 for the first treatment syringe. We use a variety of different filler products, depending on your own specific requirements, with all products being fully approved and tested. Our main fillers are the ranges from Restylane, Juvederm, Teosyal, and Radiesse. Generally, we will advise you as to the product to be used, but if you have previously had filler treatment, and wish us to use a specific product, we are happy to oblige.

Contact us on 01 679 0625, (045 431 676 for Newbridge), or via reception@pearltreatments.ie, and don’t forget to check out our special offers on beauty treatments for some pampering treats.

In simple terms, for natural appearance, ‘a young smile needs a young face…’
