Embarrassing Conditions

Treatments for Embarrassing Conditions

There are some conditions that can have a major effect on self-confidence yet could be so easily improved with non-invasive medical treatment. Conditions like excessive underarm sweating and facial hair for example. At the Arlington Aesthetic Clinic, we deal with these problems all the time, so please don't worry – you can come and speak to one of our team in complete confidence. These conditions may be distressing to you but are not embarrassing to us. Here are a few of the conditions we treat and the procedures that might be able to help you.

Excessive underarm sweating

Excessive underarm sweating is also known as hyperhidrosis and is caused when the eccrine sweat gland produces far more sweat that the body actually needs, which can obviously cause distress and embarrassment in social situations. A simple and effective treatment for excessive sweating is Botulium treatment, which can block the action of the nerves that supply the sweat glands. The effect of just one treatment can last several months or even up to a year, leaving you feeling more confident and able to enjoy life without worrying about getting hot and bothered.

Facial blushing and Rosacea

If you're affected by unwanted blushing or by Rosacea - red cheeks caused by damaged blood vessels - you'll know just how badly they can affect your self-confidence. The good news is, both these conditions can be treated effectively using Intense Pulsed Light treatment. MPL works by concentrating bright light onto the skin, destroying lesions and veins without damage to the surrounding skin, greatly reducing flushing and redness.

Facial Hair

Unwanted facial hair can also be treated effectively using Multi Pulsed Light treatment (MPL). MPL is a technologically advanced treatment using highly controlled flashes of light that are absorbed by the hair follicles lying below the surface of the skin. This energy heats up the base of the hair follicle, which causes damage to the cells that produce hair growth. With our new Maxi Plus machine the MPL is combined with Radio Frequency which adds further heat to the targeted hair follicles, making the treatment more effective. In addition, unlike older technology, the treatment head is cooled so makes the treatment virtually painless.

If enough damage is done, this will prevent the hair from growing any further. The technology is so advanced, the hair follicle can be targeted specifically without damaging any of the surrounding tissue.

Unsightly moles

These can be effectively treated with minor surgery in as little as 20 minutes – see the section on cysts and moles for more information or call us on 01323 735635.
