Hyperhydrosis

What Is Hyperhydrosis?

Hyperhydrosis or excessive sweating of the arm pit is a common problem. It is estimated to affect somewhere in the region of between 2 to 3% of Westerners and it often begins in late adolescence. It can cause distress and embarrassment for the sufferer and make the sufferer feel awkward in social situations.

What Can Be Done To Prevent Hyperhydrosis

It seems that other treatments for this condition such as topical and oral medications, iontophoresis and surgery have not proven to have been very effective in the majority of sufferers. Surgery can often result in compensatory sweating in other parts of the body. This does not appear to be a complication with the injections we administer. The treatment binds to the nerves that control sweating in the skin and reduces sweating in that area for 6 to 12 months. Clinical studies have shown that excessive sweating can be reduced by approx 80%.

What Does The Treatment Involve?
During a treatment for Hyperhydrosis, each arm pit will be injected using a very fine needle with a small amount of the treatment. 100 units are used in total, 50 units per arm pit to obtain the best results possible. This equates to approximately 15 – 20 injections per side. The pain experienced during this treatment is minimal and improvement will be noticed at 1 week and then full effect at 2 weeks.
