Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is an extremely common condition that many people suffer from. However, this fact is usually of little comfort to sufferers, who often feel embarrassed and self-conscious within social situations. In the lead up to summer, now might be the right time to consider help with your excess sweating with the help of hyperhidrosis treatment.
Hyperhidrosis is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that that works by injecting the sweat glands with muscle relaxing injections such as Botox in order to block the gland. This effectively prevents the treated glands from excreting sweat.
Hyperhidrosis is a quick and convenient cosmetic treatment, with an average procedure time of just 30 to 45 minutes, and no recovery time needed. This renders it the perfect treatment for those with busy lives. Following treatment, patients may experience a small amount of bleeding, swelling and bruising, but this is not uncommon and usually subsides within a couple of days.
Hyperhidrosis treatment is a relatively straightforward procedure, and the risks involved reflect this. The only known risk involved with hyperhidrosis treatment is the risk of infection. The chances of contracting infection following hyperhidrosis treatment are very slim, and are minimised further when undergoing treatment with a fully qualified and experienced cosmetic professional.
Although there is the risk of infection involved with hyperhidrosis treatment, for people who suffer with excess sweating, the positives usually far outweigh the negatives. One of the major benefits of hyperhidrosis treatment is the fast results it can provide. Thanks to the nature of muscle relaxing injections like Botox, hyperhidrosis treatment provides patients with almost instant relief from their excess sweating condition. The instantaneous nature of the treatment is a huge pull for a lot of patients.
Another advantage of hyperhidrosis treatment is that – due to the treatment’s non-surgical nature – patients are given much more flexibility than with cosmetic surgery. Patients can choose to carry on with top-up treatments to maintain their results, or cease treatment as they choose.
