What Is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that refers to excessive sweating in the armpits, hands or feet. Those who experience the condition have the same perspiration triggers as everyone else, such as exercise, stress and heat, but they tend to also sweat unpredictably and severely throughout the day regardless of weather, emotions or activity level.

Should I Consider Hyperhidrosis Treatment?

  • Does perspiration seem to occupy your thoughts and plans?
  • Do you avoid shaking hands for fear of embarrassment?
  • Do you constantly keep your arms down so no one will notice your sweat stains?
  • Are you self-conscious in intimate situations because you’re afraid of sweating too much?
  • Do you avoid certain clothing because you fear unsightly perspiration stains?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you should consider scheduling a confidential consultation and assessment with Nurse Matt. He will evaluate your condition, answer your questions and explain all of your treatment options.

Injections for Chronic Migraines

BOTOX® injections have been approved for treating chronic migraine anwoman with migraine pain looking at computerd headaches. These severe headaches are defined as 15 headaches a month, most lasting more than four hours.

Most headaches involve some degree of muscle tension or spasm. By injecting these proteins into specific muscle groups, called trigger point injections, our Aesthetic Registered Nurse Injector, Matt Mehrassa, can effectively treat a number of neuromuscular conditions, including chronic migraine.

How headache treatment with injections works

BOTOX® is injected into several muscle groups in the face and head, relaxing those muscles. Trigger point injections are administered in the neck and upper back in order to relax tight muscle knots in these areas.

The combination of targeted injections can significantly reduce headache, neck pain and associated muscle spasm and tension. These procedures are simple, safe, and effective. The goal of treatment is to reduce the frequency and severity of headaches, reduce dependence on other medications, and improve quality of life.

This migraine treatment is a private procedure in BC. Private medication insurance may assist your treatment cost as it pertains to this medication ($800) and injection fee ($250)
