Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, affects about 1% of the population. This is usually noticed in the armpits and palms.

It affects both males and females, usually starts in teenage years or early adulthood and may run in some families. Although antiperspirants can help most people control wetness and odour in these areas, for some, the continual stream of sweat is embarrassing and quite debilitating. Job and lifestyle limitation can be quite dramatic if shirts need to be changed five times a day!

Anti-Sweating Treatment

This treatment has been very successful in controlling sweating from these localized areas and lasts an average of just under 8 months. Sweating may continue at a more “normal” rate for months after this until further treatment is required.

We offer two different types of anti-sweating treatment.  One requires no recovery time but must be repeated regularly, while the other is a bigger treatment but may only need to be done perhaps once or twice.

Here we are discussing the first option.

FAQs about hyperhidrosis treatment

Is this treatment suitable for me?
People who sweat excessively in the armpits or other areas, for instance, the palms of the hands, often find it difficult in work or social situations due to embarrassing sweat patches on clothing or reluctance to shake hands. This treatment can help to reduce this sweating and usually lasts several months. Also people who suffer from underarm odour or are unable to use antiperspirants or deodorants may also find this treatment worthwhile.
How does Anti-Sweating treatment work?
The treatment works to stop the activity of the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands thereby reducing the wetness and odour which would otherwise result.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment usually takes around 15-30 minutes.
How effective is Anti-Sweating treatment?
After a few days, most will begin to notice the reduction in sweating which increases over 2 weeks or so and lasts a number of months. For many, there is no sweating in the treated area at all, for others there is a marked reduction with the residual amount easily managed with antiperspirants. Future treatment sessions may be scheduled as needed with most needing treatment once a year although some will need this more or less frequently.

Some people who do not sweat excessively but are sensitive to antiperspirants, dislike the effect of sweat or antiperspirants on their clothing, or just don’t like to sweat may also avail themselves of this treatment.

How long does Anti-Sweating treatment reduce my hyperhidrosis?
People will find the duration of effect varies. Typically, most will repeat the injections after 6-8 months.
Are there any side effects after treatment?
There may be some bruising. When the hands are treated, usually one is done at a time in case there is any mild, temporary weakness.

For those who wish a more permanent effect on under-arm sweating, miraDry® treatment may also be considered.
