Hyperhidrosis or excess sweating is a major and embarrassing problem. The British Medical Journal suggests that the best and most effective treatment for hyperhidrosis and excess sweating is by injection. At Freedomhealth we’ve been using small injections to stop excess sweating which some people find so uncomfortable. Stop sweating with us…
The treatment for hyperhidrosis and excess sweating is effectively the same as that used on facial areas for wrinkles and lines. The injections are placed into the over-active muscles where hyperhidrosis is a problem. These are tiny pin-pricks and almost painless. Nonetheless, we are happy though to treat people with a local anaesthetic cream to numb the area first.The treatment for excess sweating quickly produces a dry and very long lasting anti-perspirant effect. The effect can go on for up to 15 months. The armpits in our pictures are real life images and the effect seen is a partial one achieved after only three days. Almost complete dryness resulted after 5 days or so.
Some people worry about where the excess sweat then goes to. Generally there is a slight increase in whole body sweating but because it is spread over the entire body, it is unnoticeable.
The cost of the underarm treatment for hyperhidrosis is usually £500 per session depending on the area to be treated. An initial consultation fee of £100 is chargeable but offset against the full fee if you proceed with a treatment.
You will need to come back to the clinic with in two weeks so that we can make sure that the treatment is working.
