Excessive Sweating Treatment

At Nassif MedSpa we use anti-sweating injections to treat a condition known as Hyperhidrosis. This common concern sees the body excessively sweating in areas where there is a high concentration of sweat glands, including: the hands, feet, armpits and the groin. By applying botulinum toxin directly into the affected area, signals from the nerves to the glands are blocked, preventing sweat from being secreted. The results can leave you with soft skin and dry areas, regardless of heat or situation.

Excessive sweating can be an embarrassing condition that is often more prevalent when the body’s temperature rises; during the Summer and warmer months, or during periods of activity and exercise. Stress can also be a contributing factor to Hyperhidrosis, as can the menopause, diabetes and obesity.

It is estimated that 2 – 3% of the population suffers from Hyperhidrosis (approx. 1 million people), with less than 40% of those affected seeking medical advice.

To perform the treatment a grid will be placed over the affected area, marking out the places where injections will need to be administered. Each square within the grid measures around 1cm, with a small amount of diluted toxin injected into each square to reach the eccrine glands – which are responsible for producing sweat.

The treatment uses a very fine needle and is usually quick and very well tolerated. For your comfort, a numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment.
The desired results from anti-sweating injections may take up to 2 weeks to fully develop, leaving you free from embarrassing damp patches for up to 12 months.

Your pre-treatment consultation will discuss your personalised treatment plan, recommending the best way for you to enjoy the results for the longer term. Improving Hyperhidrosis can also help to improve your self-confidence and self-esteem.

FAQs

Am I suitable for anti-sweating injections?

Many people who are affected by Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, find they are embarrassed by the condition. It can occur sporadically, leave moist patches on clothing, and occasionally omit an odour. These factors can impact on the emotional well-being of the affected person, often making them anxious about being in social situations as well as trying to find ways of concealing its effects. A thorough consultation at Nassif MedSpa will examine your concerns and recommend the best treatment option for you.

Are anti-sweating injections safe?

This is an FDA approved product that is increasingly being used to treat a number of medical and aesthetic concerns. To ensure the procedure is carried out safely and effectively, you should only undergo the treatment when it is being administered by a trained and experienced injector.

Will it hurt?

This treatment is generally tolerated well by many patients. If you feel your own level of tolerance is lower than you would like, you have the option of having a topical numbing cream applied 20 – 30 minutes before the procedure is carried out.

Are there any side effects or risks?

In most cases, a patient will experience redness, swelling and bruising at the treatment site, following the procedure. These temporary effects have often settled within 24 hours, along with any sensitivity and tenderness. As with any procedure, there is always some degree of associated risk, all of which will be explained to you at your pre-treatment consultation.

How much downtime can I expect?

In general, an injectable treatment for botulinum toxin does not often incur any significant amount of downtime. You may feel tender for a short while, but this should not stop you from carrying out your usual daily tasks.
