Hyperhidrosis can be unpleasant and uncomfortable for those who suffer from it. It is a common condition involving symptoms such as clammy or wet palms of the hands or soles of the feet, frequent sweating, or noticeable sweating that soaks through clothing.
Also known as excessive sweating, this condition can have a negative effect on day-to-day life; sweating excessively often makes everyday activities and tasks difficult to deal with, especially if it is exacerbated by certain stressors. We frequently help people who are searching for a way to deal with their excessive sweating at Transform.
Our specially trained practitioners offer specially formulated injections to treat excessive sweating. This popular non-surgical procedure is an effective hyperhidrosis treatment and involves the injection of small amounts of treatment into the area in question: usually the armpits, palms or the soles of the feet. These injections are given with the aim of temporarily blocking the nerve impulses that trigger excessive sweating.

Excessive sweating may have an underlying medical cause – and in this case, it is known as secondary hyperhidrosis. If this is not the case, however, and there is no root medical cause, you are most likely suffering from primary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis occurs when the nerves responsible for triggering sweat glands become overactive and cause unnecessary perspiration. The reason for this is unknown, although it is thought that it may be a hereditary condition. Stressors such as heat, stress or nervousness may also play a part in triggering or exacerbating excessive sweating, meaning that if you suffer from hyperhidrosis you may be more prone to avoiding particular social situations.
Everyday life with hyperhidrosis can be improved by making small, sensible changes such as wearing loose clothing so as not to show signs of sweating, wearing breathable leather shoes, or avoiding alcohol and spicy foods. These changes are intended to mitigate the effects of hyperhidrosis, though, rather than treating it at the source.
Iontophoresis: Treat excessive sweating through submersion of the hands and feet in a bowl of water, while a painless electric current is passed through the water. Most patients need two to four 20-30 minute treatments.
Treatment injections: Injections are given to the affected area to block the nerves that trigger sweat glands. This essentially ‘turns off’ sweating in the area in which it has been injected.
Anticholinergic drugs: This type of medication inhibits the transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses.
Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS): This type of hyperhidrosis treatment is surgical, and is usually recommended as a last resort, when success has not been experienced with other treatments. It involves the cutting of the nerves that carry messages to the sweat glands.

The entire process of treating excessive sweating through injections with Transform is designed around you and your needs. As always, the first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering hyperhidrosis treatment, the likely costs and finance options, and when you’d like to have the treatment. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our expert practitioners.
Injections to treat excessive sweating don’t take much time to administer, and they don’t restrict you from taking part in normal leisure activities (apart from avoiding strenuous exercise and refraining from using a sauna on the day of the procedure). If treatment is required in the underarms, we also advise not shaving the area for 3 or 4 days prior to your injections.
During the procedure, 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 may employ one of a number of anaesthetic treatments. We recommend a follow up appointment one or two weeks after your injections. At Transform, we have a high standard of aftercare and if you have any questions after your treatment, there’s a 24/7 helpline available to answer all of your queries. Still not sure if injections are the right hyperhidrosis treatment for you? Get in touch with us today for a free consultation to discuss your needs.
