Botox Injections: Botox, short for Botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is used medically and cosmetically for various purposes. Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected, causing muscle relaxation. Botulinum toxin injections (Botox) can be used to temporarily block the nerves that stimulate sweat glands, reducing sweat production. This treatment is commonly used for underarm, palms, soles of feet, and other areas for hyperhidrosis.
Morpheus8 is a cosmetic procedure that combines micro-needling with radiofrequency (RF) technology to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. Morpheus8, on high energy levels, is used to reduce excessive sweating by up-to 80% after the first treatment. It is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that has gained popularity in the field of aesthetic medicine for its ability to address various skin concerns.
- Micro-Needling: The procedure begins with the use of micro-needles that create tiny, controlled punctures in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response, leading to increased collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are essential proteins that help maintain the skin’s elasticity and youthful appearance.
- Radiofrequency (RF) Energy: Morpheus8 delivers RF energy through the micro-needles into the deeper layers of the skin. This RF energy heats the tissue and promotes further collagen and elastin production. The combination of micro-needling and RF energy helps to tighten and rejuvenate the skin.
