Treatment of Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating of hands, foor & underarm.


Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a common disorder affecting many people. Palmar hyperhidrosis or sweaty palms is the most common form of hyperhidrosis, causing excessive sweating of the hands. Whilst excessive sweating in the underarms causes body odor (BO).
Sweating is often uncontrollable, embarrassing and not anticipated . Normal sweating is needed for thermal regulation however in people suffering from hyperhidrosis, sweating exceeds the bodys need for physiological thermal regulation.
Hyperhidrosis is an inherited problem that has been seen in almost every ethnic group. People don’t get used to living with hyperhidrosis but they continue to suffer throughout their lives from it.
Hyperhidrosis can have severe physiological consequences such as cold and clammy hands, dehydration, and skin infections secondary to maceration of the skin and body odor. These conditions can have devastating emotional effects on one’s individual life.
Many treatments have been used in the past including talcum powder, deodorants, and antiperspirants. For the lucky few they work. For others a trip to the doctor might have brought them Iontophoresis.
1) Botox or Botolinium Toxin A therapy is a new and very effective treatment through injections to treat hyperhidrosis. It acts by blocking the impulse at the nerve endings, which suppplies the small muscles that are adjacent to the sweat glands. This controls expulsion of the sweat to the skin surface. The effects last from six to eight months so you will need to have about one to two treatments a year. Botox injection is probably the best treatment for sweaty palms and soles, as well as underarms.

2) SmartLipo, on the other hand is the most effective method for permanent reduction of excessive sweating.The sweat glands are inactivated by light energy released from the laser opticfiber. Effect is permanent and there is no need of repeating the procedure. A general anesthetic is also not necessary as the SmartLipo treatment can be carried out under only local anesteshia, enabling you to return to your routine after just one hour.

3) Iontophoresis is an older procedure and is not easily available and therefore shall not be discussed.

IMMUNE BOOST YOUR SYSTEM with CYTOKINEs

What is Cytokines?
The term "cytokine" is derived from a combination of two Greek words - "cyto" meaning cell and "kinos" meaning movement. Cytokines are cell signalling molecules that aid cell to cell communication in immune responses and stimulate the movement of cells towards sites of inflammation, infection and trauma.


They are released mainly to stimulate an immune response when the cells detect any  foreign substances in the blood. Cytokines essentially consists of proteins, peptides, and glycoproteins. They are primarily released by immune system cells in order to initiate cell-to-cell interaction in order to generate an immune response.  For instance when white cells come into contact with pathogens(bacteria, viruses) they immediately release cytokines, which in turn communicate and activate other white blood cells to attavk the foreign invader.

This is the natural way our immune response of alerting and recruiting more numbers of White Blood Cell…

Vulvalar Whitening

Many Asian women experience a darkening of the inner thigh skin or the perineum skin as they age and especially after pregnancy. This is a very common phenomenon and can be quite unbecoming especially in a swimsuit or bikini. Sometime this darkening is due to the rubbing of inner thigh skin together due to excess fat in the thighs or a fungal infection which causes itchiness and scratching. Our new laser can now treat this area of skin. Each treatment can improve the condition by at least 20%. Because of this I usually recommend 3 sessions with each session 1 month apart. Although I must say that some women have found satisfactory outcome even after just 1 treatment.

5 Proven Methods for Permanent Fat Reduction

I have come across many clients who ask me about fat removal and they often confuse this with weightloss. Due to the many marketing ads all around us that offer"slimming" procedures, I find that many women are confused as to wether they want to loose weight or reduce fat.




So I categorize clients like this:


A. those who are overweight or obese with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 27 an above. You will need to loose overall weight for a healthier and trimmer looking body.
There will be excess fat here and there but it is no use thinking about them when over all you have excess fat including visceral fat.
And
B. those who are of normal body weight (BMI 25 and below) or just slightly overweight (BMI 25-27) and have certain areas of stubborn fat which do not seem to go away despite exercise or would like a trimmer, better silhuoette.

For FAT REDUCTION on the spot , there are several methods to loose them. These can be minimally invasive or non invasive at all.
