Treatment of Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the underarms)
How it works:
The active ingredient that we use is a natural purified protein with the ability to temporarily block the secretion of the chemical that is responsible for turning on the body’s sweat glands. By blocking, or interrupting, this chemical messenger, the active ingredient turns off sweating in the areas which has been injected. The injections are very shallow, meaning the medicine is injected just below the surface of the skin where it remains. These subdermal injections are safe and only ever provided by medically and dentally trained clinicians at our clinic in Altrincham, Cheshire..
Clinical studies have shown that this type of treatment can result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately two to four days after with full effects usually noticeable within 2 weeks. Dryness typically last 3-12 months.
It is recommended you return to the clinic for follow up appointments after two weeks of carrying out the treatment..
Potential side effects:
- Pain or redness or itching where injections are given.
- Nausea, headaches and hot flushes after injections are given.
- Another part of your body sweating more to make up for treated area - known as compensatory sweating.
- Muscle weakness around treatment area.
Most of these side effects are short lived or will resolve as the effect of the injections wears off.
Intense exercise should be avoided for 12 hours after treatment.
Deodorant should be avoided until the next day.
