How does the Hyperhidrosis treatment work?
Excessive sweating is treated by administering an injection of the protein botulinum toxin to the overactive sweat glands, which are identified by first applying a powder to the skin. The protein acts by blocking excess nerve signals to the sweat glands, thus reducing the amount of sweat the body releases.
How will I feel during the Hyperhidrosis treatment?
Apart from the small pinprick when the injections are given, this is a comfortable and painless procedure. Local anaesthetic can be used if you have particularly sensitive skin.
Is Hyperhidrosis treatment right for me?
If your aim is to reduce the embarrassment and inconvenience cause by overactive sweat glands, the hyperhidrosis treatment is a safe and convenient option.
What happens after Hyperhidrosis treatment?
You will notice a significant reduction in sweating, and this lasts for a period of up to 3 months, after which many patients return for further treatment.
