Thousands of people suffer from hyperhidrosis across the UK – a condition where you sweat and perspire irregularly. Excessive sweating can be a cause of distress and frustration. If this sounds familiar don’t panic, Austin Brewer’s facial aesthetics clinic can provide treatment for hyperhidrosis in Bournemouth, getting you back to your best.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Your body produces sweat to cool down and control your system’s temperature. Hyperhidrosis is the body’s overproduction of sweat, and overactive sweat glands can produce four or five times as much sweat than is needed.
Do I need treatment for Hyperhidrosis?
You may find yourself with heavy underarm sweating that hinders your day-to-day activities, having to change clothing regularly or worrying about underarm stains. If the sweating is becoming a hindrance and obstacle in your everyday life and antiperspirants just aren’t working, it’s time to consider treatment. Your first step is to book a free consultation with Austin Brewer.
How is Hyperhidrosis treated?
Botulinum toxin type A (Botox®) is approved for treating excessive sweating of underarms. By injecting Botox® into the affected underarm areas the messages sent to the glands are blocked by a chemical that prevents the glands activating. The glands then don’t produce sweat!
Will it hurt?
When the Botox® is injected a very small needle is used so any discomfort is minimal. The treatment will take approx 10-15 minutes.
Are there any risks?
There are no severe risks to treating hyperhidrosis – Botox® is perfectly safe if applied by a professional such as Austin Brewer. However, there is the potential for small side effects including small reactions to the injections, which may result in redness, a little bruising or irritation.
How long will it take for Botox® to treat Hyperhidrosis?
Just 2 days after your treatment you should start to notice the change, though each person’s response times will be different. In the following weeks you’ll notice the effects drastically improve – sweat production will be reduced massively!
How long does the treatment last?
The treatment will last approx 9 months.
