Finding yourself pouring with sweat for no apparent reason regardless of heat or stress, is a worry that you can do without. For a lot of people, having hyperhidrosis can be a constant cause of stress, self-awareness and anxiety in ordinary situations, but it can also be exacerbated and heightened when it comes to things like meeting new people, attending a job interview or going on a date. But it doesn’t have to!
In this blog, we discuss the treatment options we offer for hyperhidrosis here at Transform, how they work and how it could benefit you:
Hyperhidrosis is a common condition involving symptoms such as clammy or wet palms of the hands or soles of the feet and is characterised by frequent, noticeable sweating that soaks through clothing.
If you aren’t sure whether this sounds like you then it is more likely that your sweating is brought on by hot weather or other aggravating factors. Trust us, if you have hyperhidrosis, you will know about it!
Hyperhidrosis usually occurs when the nerves responsible for triggering sweat glands become overactive and cause unnecessary perspiration when it is not needed. The reason for this is unknown, although it is thought that it may be a hereditary condition that is simply down to genetics. Factors like heat, stress or nervousness may also play a part in triggering your excessive sweating, meaning that if you suffer from hyperhidrosis you may be more prone to avoiding particular social situations in order to avoid embarrassment.
Believe it or not, our specially trained practitioners use wrinkle-smoothing injections to treat excessive sweating which works by temporarily blocking the nerves that trigger you to sweat profusely. Small amounts of product are injected into the area, usually the underarms, palms of the hands or the soles of the feet. If treatment is required in the underarms, we also advise against shaving the area for 3 or 4 days prior to your injections so it is not irritated.
During the treatment, a very fine needle is used to inject minute amounts of treatment just under the skin throughout the zone of excessive sweating.
To avoid discomfort, your practitioner will most likely apply a numbing cream to the area around 30 minutes before treatment to minimise any pain that you might feel. We recommend a follow-up appointment one or two weeks after your injections to see how you are getting on and if you require any further treatment.
The cost of your hyperhidrosis will depend on where you wish to treat. Here at Transform, our most common treatment area is in the underarms which cost £525 in total for both.
Hyperhidrosis treatments are available at most of our Transform clinics. All injectables are only performed by a specialist Doctor or a Nurse Practitioner using premium products and always in a clinical environment.
