Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)2019-07-12T13:34:58+00:00

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.

🦠 Covid 19 Update 🦠

This strain of Covid is more deadly than the previous strains, numbers are still high and very precarious.

The vaccine is going to help but in the mean time we can’t loose sight of what we need to do.

As a regulated healthcare professional able to operate to safe standards in a safe environment, I am not required to close for medical treatments, however, I do have a duty to play my part in protecting public health and so would encourage all my patients who feel they can wait to trust me to do my very best to accommodate everyone once this lockdown lifts.

In the meantime, I do recognise that for some, the treatments I provide are seen as very important for psychological well-being and for those who are anxious about their treatment plans, I will be available for on-line assessment and limited appointments for those who have an urgent medical need for treatment and care which cannot wait, and subject to assessment.
