Hyperhidrosis Treatment Process How to treat excess sweating in Inverness

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common yet often embarrassing condition that causes the over-production of sweat. It is most common in the hands, feet, and under the arms. If you have tried every anti-perspirant, body spray, and deodorant available but are still suffering from this often lifestyle-limiting condition, then Emma J Aesthetics can help.

At your initial consultation we can assess your suitability and expected outcome. Here, you can ask us any questions and we will strive to keep you informed so you feel confident and safe proceeding with treatment. We can devise a hyperhidrosis treatment plan designed to suit you and advise you on anything you should do prior to treatment.

Your treatment will take up to 45 minutes. We will endeavour to keep you comfortable during the procedure, as 15 tiny yet precise injections will be made under each arm. All injections will be given quickly.

It’s important not to touch the treated area for two hours after the treatment. Try to avoid vigorous exercise and alcohol for a day or so to let the injected area settle. We can help manage any complications you may experience post-treatment, but this common procedure comes with little-to-no risk.

Your results can last up to 6 months with an 80% reduction in excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis can be limiting, but with this effective treatment using anti-wrinkle injections can provide the relief you need. We at Emma J Aesthetics are experienced in this treatment, and we can help you.

Your questions answered

What is anti-wrinkle injections and how does it work in treating hyperhidrosis?

Anti-wrinkle injections is a purified protein prepared from botulin. When small doses are injected into the skin, it effectively blocks the nerves that supply sweat glands. This prevents the glands from producing sweat.

When is the right time to consider anti-wrinkle injections as a treatment option?

If topical treatments such as antiperspirants and medications have proved unsuccessful, it could be the right time to consider anti-wrinkle injections.

Anti-wrinkle injections is only effective in treating small areas (such as underarms) and is therefore not suitable for treating generalised hyperhidrosis.

How effective is the treatment?

Medical studies and patient testimonials have confirmed that anti-wrinkle injections reduces sweating and improves lifestyle. Obviously, results vary from one individual to the next and it’s possible for some sweat glands to be missed by the treatment.

This is easily resolved with a top-up injection. It’s important to know that you will need top-ups every few months to sustain results. Anti-wrinkle injections cannot cure hyperhidrosis – as nerve endings regrow, sweating returns.

Is the treatment painful?

Discomfort during treatment is usually minimal.

How long until sweating reduces?

Most people experience a significant reduction in around four weeks of their first treatment.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t have anti-wrinkle injections?

Generally, anti-wrinkle injections is suitable for people between the ages of 18 to 65 years. However, it should be avoided if:

– You’re pregnant or nursing

– Have Myasthenia Gravis or Lambert Eaton Syndrome

– Have a history of Bell’s Palsy

– Take aminoglycoside antibiotics

– You’re allergic to anti-wrinkle injections, human albumin or sucrose

It’s also important to stop taking aspirin, other NSAIDS, vitamin E, St John’s Wort or ginkgo biloba one week before treatment to minimise bruising.
