Treating Hyperhidrosis – Addressing a common but not so familiar problem
There are some health issues which, while not being serious, are widely known and offer clearly defined treatment paths. Then there are conditions like Hyperhidrosis
..despite affecting between one and three in every 100 people in the UK remains largely unknown and leaves patients struggling to identify viable solutions.
This is a condition that causes people to sweat excessively, It can also become a huge source of embarrassment, stress and anxiety when left untreated. Although it most commonly affects your underarms and the palms of your hand, it can afflict the entire body and leave people struggling to live their everyday lives.
At aesthetic suites our medical experience and training enables us to fully recognise this condition allowing us to deliver a suitable treatment for sufferers. This is how it works:
You will attend an initial consultation to discuss the extent of your condition and to ensure that you’re suitable for treatment. We’ll also make sure that you’re not allergic to any substances that we use as part of the treatment plan.
Similar to our anti-wrinkle treatment, we’ll then superficially inject Botulinum Toxin Type A into your underarm region.
You may begin to notice that excess sweat production has ceased within one week of treatment, while a single set of injections will deliver results that last for up to 6 months.
This simple treatment is both clinically safe and effective, with a personalised plan of action laid out during your initial, no obligation consultation.
Sweating is just the human body’s way of cooling down known as thermoregulation.
A normal adult will sweat from the eccrine glands up to a maximum of around 2_4 litres per hour or 10_14 litres per day, dependant on exertion and hot weather, which will cause people to produce more sweat than normal inactivity and a cooler environment. Unfortunately, in some people this mechanism of thermoregulation is broken and becomes overactive, with the body sweating 4 or 5 times more than needed as it attempts to cool down .
