Treatment for Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis has been reported to affect over 5% of the world’s population, but not many people understand what it is and think there is no management tool to help them. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. It can become quite embarrassing for sufferers, given its unwanted side effects of excessive sweat and body odour.

These issues can lead to an uncomfortable lifestyle, both physically and mentally – the stigma surrounding sweating and its associations can lead to paranoia regarding the opinions of other people, and worrying about unwanted attention. Another side effect of this condition is the increased risk of fungal infections. However, at Emma J we can assure you that you do not need to feel uneasy about hyperhidrosis as there is an effective, non-invasive remedy available to you today in Inverness.

Solution to Hyperhidrosis

Specialised injections can be used treat hyperhidrosis as they can temporarily halt your muscle contractions in the affected areas, also helping stop the sweat glands. The most commonly affected areas tend to be the armpit region, feet, hands and face. In order to put a temporary halt to the excessive sweating, specialised injections containing Botulin will be injected to the concentrated areas in order for your muscles to stop contracting and for the hyperhidrosis to be contained at a fixed level. The injections don’t spread anywhere else, so they can only treat the area they are injected in, but you can feel fresher and dryer for up to 6 months following the treatment.

The procedure will take just under 30 minutes to administer. Rest assured, it’s completely safe and pain free, with any swelling or bruising that occur shortly afterward tending to be short-lived and will settle quickly.

How long will results last?

You’ll start to notice the specialised injection results 2-3 days after your treatment is complete. You should start to see a reduction in your sweat levels and it is estimated that this will be the case for at least 3-4 months. At this point you may wish to pop back in for a top-up appointment to keep the momentum going for your new and improved lifestyle. Moving forward, the more specialised injections you have, the longer your results should last.

Feeling fresher and rejuvenated, especially during the summer season or just before your long-awaited holiday, will make having specialised injections seem like an investment.
