Hyperhidrosis – treatment for excess sweating

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excess sweating. Hyperhidrosis treatment is used to treat excess sweating, most commonly in areas such as the underarms and hands.

How does it work?

Hyperhidrosis treatment works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating the sweat glands. Specifically, it inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that stimulates the sweat glands.

By preventing acetylcholine from binding to its receptors on the sweat glands, it reduces or eliminates sweating in the treated area.

The Process

1. Consultation: The first step is a consultation with a healthcare provider to determine if Hyperhidrosis is appropriate for the patient’s condition and to discuss potential risks and benefits.

2. Preparation: On the day of the procedure, the area to be treated is cleaned and marked. Sometimes, a topical anaesthetic or ice is applied to minimise discomfort.

3. Treatment: The product is injected just under the skin with a fine needle. Multiple injections are administered in a grid-like pattern to cover the entire area where excessive sweating occurs.

4. Post procedure: The procedure typically takes 20-30 minutes. Patients can usually resume normal activities immediately.

Results and Duration

Onset: The effects of Hyperhidrosis treatment start to become noticeable within a few days, with full results typically seen within two weeks.

Duration: The reduction in sweating usually lasts for 4 to 6 months. Repeat treatments are necessary to maintain the benefits.

Clinical studies and patient experiences have shown Hyperhidrosis treatment to be highly effective in significantly reducing sweating in targeted areas. It can improve the quality of life for individuals suffering from hyperhidrosis by providing a reliable and minimally invasive treatment option to the embarrassment caused by excessive sweating and sweat patches on clothing
