What is our Hyperhidrosis Course?
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. While it is very common, it can cause some unwanted side effects, such as body odor and embarrassing sweat patches. This can result in your clients feeling self-conscious and insecure. Often there is no clear cause for hyperhidrosis, but this Hyperhidrosis Course will ensure you can help clients regain control of their bodies.
In this Hyperhidrosis Course, you will be taught how the use of Botulinum Toxin can help clients with their unwanted sweat. The use of Botulinum Toxin goes beyond the smoothing of wrinkles, botox also works to prevent the release of neurotransmitter acetylcholine that stimulates the activation of sweat glands. This is a safe and effective treatment for clients suffering from hyperhidrosis and has been found to be at least 85% effective.
