Hormonal fluctuations can cause hyperhidrosis, a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. Using Botox injections, we can treat hyperhidrosis by temporarily blocking the nerves that stimulate sweat glands.
Candidate for Non-Surgical Gender-Affirming Procedures?
Individuals who wish to express their gender identity in a way that is more aligned with their true self, but who do not want to undergo surgical procedures, may be good candidates for non-surgical options. The qualifications for non-surgical gender-affirming treatment will depend on the types of procedures being considered. In general, a good candidate is someone who is 18 years of age or older and in good mental and physical health.
The decision to undergo any gender-affirming procedure should always be made in consultation with a qualified healthcare provider who can provide guidance on the most appropriate treatment plan based on an individual's specific needs and health status. The Plastic Surgery Center offers confidential gender affirmation non-surgical procedure consultations at all of our locations. During your consultation, a skilled and compassionate surgeon will thoroughly evaluate your medical history, skin type, and transition goals before recommending a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
about this procedure?
What to Expect
Non-surgical procedures are performed in-office and typically last 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the type of treatment. Although no anesthesia is required, a topical anesthetic can be applied to sensitive areas if needed. Patients are encouraged to discuss any concerns with their doctor.
Side effects may include redness, bruising, and swelling around the treated area. Discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication and usually subsides within days. Most patients are able to resume regular activities the same day or within one to three days following treatment.
While you’ll likely see some improvement immediately following a non-surgical procedure, final results may not be apparent for one to two weeks. Non-surgical procedures often require multiple treatments, and results vary based on the technique and area of treatment.
To maximize recovery and results, closely follow aftercare instructions.
