Stop Sweat

Say goodbye to inconveniences caused by excess sweating and body odour! At Dr. Ratna's Clinic, we are using the newest painless and no scar method, short procedure time and the zero downtime so you can immediately resume your normal daily activities.

Hyperhidrosis & Osmidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is triggered by stress or emotional stimulation, which cause the ecrine glands to secrete more than the necessary amount of sweat. 

Osmidrosis occurs due to the combination of secretion from apocrine gland and bacterias on skin, which causes body odor over time. theThis may cause the underarm area to turn yellow when sweating.


Where does hyperhidrosis occur?

Underarms: Because clothes will get wet and smells, it’s not hygienic.
Hands: Irritation may occur and daily routine such as handshaking or taking notes may cause discomfort.
Feet: Athlete’s foot and odorous feet can occur.

What is Botox?
Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a natural purified protein that which temporarily relaxes facial muscles which are the cause of wrinkles and age lines. It can also be used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis and osmidrosis (excessive sweating and body odor). Botox is safe and certified by the FDA in both the medical and cosmetic field.

How does Botox® work in treating Hyperhidrosis & Osmidrosis?
Botox® can reduce the sweat secretion by restraining the secretion of neurotransmitters.

Aftercare of Treatment
-Avoid heavy exercise on the day of treatment.
