Hyperhidrosis is the condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating/perspiration, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. It is associated with a significant quality of life burden from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective.
It most often occurs in the armpits, but can also affect the hands, feet, scalp, face, and entire body.
By performing a series of injections in the affected area, the sweating can be dramatically reduced.
A series of small injections using the same product as Anti-Wrinkle treatments are placed into the affected area and into the specific sweat glands, which takes around 30 minutes to perform. The treatment takes around 7-14 days to become completely effective and should last upwards of 9-12 months before next treatment is needed.
This treatment is not a cure to hyperhidrosis. By treating the affected area with these injections, it blocks the neural signal that stimulate activity in the sweat gland, stopping localised sweating. The body will continue to produce moisture elsewhere, but for many clients, this is a welcome relief to an embarrassing situation.
