What is Hyperhidrosis Excessive Sweating Treatment?
Hyperhidrosis means excessive sweating. Sweating is one of the most important ways in which the body loses heat, however, people with hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature.
What are the causes of Hyperhidrosis?
It’s not entirely known why some people are affected and others are not. About 30% – 50% of people with hyperhidrosis have a relative with a similar problem, suggesting that there maybe a genetic cause.
Hyperhidrosis is caused by over activity of one type of sweat gland, the eccrine gland. These glands are found virtually all over the surface of the body but they are concentrated on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and the armpits. People with hyperhidrosis can produce a large volume of sweat. This means that the hands, feet, chest or armpits (depending on which part of the body is affected) may be constantly damp. This may make normal everyday activities more difficult to carry out and it can cause embarrassment at work or socially.
What is and how does the treatment work for Excessive Underarm Sweating?
Very small and superficial injections are made into the skin, blocking the action of the nerves that supply the sweat glands, prevents them from producing sweat.
What results can I expect from Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
You should notice some change for the better within a week of your treatment.
After 6 to 9 months, new nerves grow and you may start to sweat again. If this happens, the treatment may be repeated.
What do I need to do before I come for treatment?
Before treatment it is be necessary to remove armpit hair by shaving or by using hair removal cream. Do not use any deodorants or antiperspirants for 24 hours before treatment.
Are there any risks or complications and side effects?
Since the injection is made only into the skin, using very small amounts of medication, side effects are rare but may include bruising.
