Hyperhidrosis ( Excessive Sweating ) Treatment in Bournemouth, Poole & Dorset
Hyperhidrosis is a common condition in which a person sweats excessively.
The sweating may affect the whole of your body, or it may only affect certain areas such as the armpits, forehead, hands and feet with both sides usually being affected equally.
The sweating doesn’t usually pose a serious threat to your health, but it can be embarrassing and distressing. It can also have a negative impact on your quality of life and may lead to feelings of anxiety and depression.
How does it work?
Luckily at Shore Aesthetics in Bournemouth and Poole we can answer your prayers using botulinum toxin treatment. The toxin works by blocking the chemical at the end of the nerves so that it cannot work on the glands or muscles. In the case of the sweat glands it turns them off to reduce sweating.
This is achieved through multiple small injections of the toxin a few centimetres apart in the armpit which takes around 30-45 minutes.
Does treatment hurt?
At Shore Aesthetics we use micro needles for maximum comfort along with topical local anaesthetic and vibration technology to reduce discomfort during the procedure.
How long will it last?
The treatment for hyperhidrosis will last between 4 – 9 months on average.
