Excessive Sweating

Excessive Sweating or Hyperhidrosis is defined as sweating beyond a level required to maintain normal body temperature. It can be socially embarrassing or interfere with certain professions.

We’ll help you reach a decision regarding the types of treatment available. The options are:

1- miraDry

miraDry is an easy treatment that can be completed in around one hour and provides lasting results.

Most patients return to regular activity immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment.

2 – Armpit skin resection and gland debulking (open adenectomy):

This is a surgical procedure that is often done under local anaesthetic and sedation. It involves the removal of an ellipse of skin and sweat gland from the armpit. It produces a 4cm scar in the hair-bearing skin in the axilla and provides a significantly long-lasting result.

3 – Antiwrinkle Injections:

The treatment is simple and patients report a substantial decrease in sweating within two days.  Good results may be obtained after a single injection session and last up to six months. The effect of the injection may take up to 21 days to work. In rare cases, some patients may need a repeat injection within four weeks if there has been little response.

Do antiwrinkle injections hurt?

A small disposable syringe with a microneedle is used. When treating the armpits, most patients find the injections only cause mild discomfort. Local anaesthesia is required for the hand and feet treatments.

How many treatments will I need?

Repeat treatments are usually needed every 3-4 months over a twelve-month period.
