Acting on Excessive Sweating

In order to regulate its internal temperature, the body needs to produce sweat. However, when this process becomes unbalanced and you begin to sweat profusely, it affects your quality of life. While excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) does not pose a risk to your health, it can have a significant negative impact, but know that solutions are available to you.

Come and visit us for all of your medical aesthetic concerns or needs. An evaluation will enable us to develop an individualized treatment plan that reflects your specific desires. Our team of professionals will be happy to guide you towards finding appropriate care in a sound and inspiring setting. Give yourself the attention you deserve.

We look forward to seeing you at Figurra Institute.

Sweating allows the body to regulate its temperature and is therefore normal. It's when it becomes more excessive than necessary in fulfilling its role that we refer to hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating.

Heavy perspiration is not a serious illness, but rather a very real daily problem. It can lead to frequent perspiration and stained clothes; excessive sweating of the feet, armpits, face or head; sweat droplets on your palms or soles of the feet.

When deodorants and antiperspirants are not sufficient to fight perspiration and its effects, other treatments are available for you.

Embarrassed to wear shorts this summer?

Why do we have varicose veins on our legs? Varicose veins are veins that have lost their elasticity and that are dilated. Varicose veins no longer fulfill their blood transport role to the heart. 

These veins may present symptoms such as: heaviness, pain and swelling (edema), fatigue, tension, cramps, etc.; not forgetting their less than favorable appearance especially during the summer. 

How is a Varicose Vein Treatment preformed?
The patient is lying comfortably. The injections (needles) are almost painless and require no anesthetic. When used, the ultrasound guidance provides greater security through control of the needle position and visualization of the sclerosing foam. Compression stockings will also be recommended. After a few days, the veins shrink and harden indicating that the treatment is taking effect.

Is the result final?
It should be understood that vein disease is a chronic illness. When all large varicose veins have been treated and the reactions have faded, the venous circulatory system will return to normal. The skin condition will be improved. Telangiectasia (fine veins) can appear, or be formed again, and require additional treatment(s).

Don't hesitate to contact us today! Call 1-877-533-2828 to schedule an evaluation and mapping of your leg veins with Dr. Homayoon Jazebizadeh.
