Antiperspirants are not always effective for those who sweat more than others. Underarm sweating (hyperhydrosis) treatment involves injecting small amounts of a purified, naturally-occurring protein into the skin under the arm. Treating underarm sweating using this solution is completely safe and very effective, minimising how much you sweat by up to 60-80%.
The protein solution that is injected into the skin under the arm blocks the chemical that activates the body’s sweat glands. By disrupting this biological process, the protein solution effectively “turns off” the body’s ability to sweat in the area where it is injected.
It is perfectly normal to experience some mild discomfort, but this usually passes within a short period of time, as injections are quick using a super thin needle.
During your first consultation, our friendly team will ask you to complete a medical form. We will explain the treatment process to you and give you the chance to ask any questions before the procedure begins.
We will use a starch iodine test to identify the areas of sweating under your arm and mark the boundaries. Once we have disinfected the treatment area, we will carry out a series of small, superficial injections. The dosages of the protein solution provided will be a standard, safe amount for the area to be treated.
Treatment will take effect within 1 to 2 weeks. Results will typically last between 5 to 8 months, but ongoing care may be required if you wish to enjoy the effects for longer.
As with any other medicine, there are some possible side effects of underarm sweating treatment. These include:
