What is hyperhidrosis?
The usual sweating process—also known as perspiration—is necessary to not only maintain normal body temperature, but also for eliminating disease-causing toxins and killing potentially harmful microorganisms that cannot survive in temperatures above 37°C as well as those on the surface of the skin.

What is Stylage?
Stylage is a brand of injectable dermal fillers that are designed and manufactured by Vivacy Laboratories, a renowned French pharmaceutical company. The fillers are made of nonanimal-based hyaluronic acid molecules. The molecules are extracted through biofermentation and highly purified before they are cross-linked with a patented reticulating technology, IPN-Like Technology. The resulting gel is biodegradable and extremely viscoelastic with a monophasic texture. The fillers are unique as they are incorporated with antioxidants mannitol or sorbitol to not only preserve the physio-chemical properties of the filler gel but also to maintain good skin health by scavenging any harmful free radicals. After many years of research and development, the Stylage brand boasts a wide collection of fillers that can be used to address many aesthetic issues—from correcting simple skin dullness to volumising sunken facial regions.
