Underarm Sweating Treatment

What is underarm sweating treatment?

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%.

What does underarm sweating treatment do?

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.

You are not suitable for underarm sweating treatment if you:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have a skin infection in the area required to be treated
  • Have a neuromuscular condition (e.g. myasthenia gravis, Eaton-Lambert)
  • Are allergic to the protein solution used
  • Are taking aminoglycoside antibiotics (e.g. gentamycin, clindamycin)

Is underarm sweating treatment painful?

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.

What can I expect from the appointment?

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.

How long does it take for the treatment to work, and how long will it last?

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.

What should I do before and after treatment?

  • BEFORE: Try to shave or trim the underarm area 2 to 3 days before treatment, not on the day of the procedure.
  • ON THE DAY OF TREATMENT: Do not use any antiperspirant or deodorant.
  • AFTER: Avoid strenuous exercises, steam rooms and saunas for at least 24 hours

Are there any side effects of underarm sweating treatment?

As with any other medicine, there are some possible side effects of underarm sweating treatment. These include:

  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Irritation
  • Bleeding
