HYPERHIDROSIS TREATMENT 2018-01-25T06:45:04+00:00

What is Hyperhidrosis Treatment?

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. It is specifically defined as a condition wherein the body sweats beyond its temperature regulation needs. Hyperhidrosis generally runs in families and thus is considered genetic. It mostly occurs in men, but a small number of women are also affected. Common areas of hyperhidrosis are the underarm or armpit, the hands, the feet and the face. While hyperhidrosis is not dangerous, it can be embarrassing and uncomfortable.

It can be treated by Anti sweating injections. Botulinum toxin 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, botulinum toxin “turns off” sweating at the area where it has been injected. The injections are very shallow, meaning that the medicine is injected just below the surface of the skin, where it remains.

The injections are easily tolerated by most patients. The injection needle is very small, however at least 10-20 injections are placed into each armpit, and the pain of the procedure is over in 90-120 seconds. Each needle feels like an ant bite.

We give the patients the option of the PAINLESS method- this consists of numbing cream applied to the treated area 30 minutes before the injections, and combined with a state of the art Zimmer Skin Cooler, this now makes it a painless way of getting the sweaty underarms sweat-free.
