Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive or uncontrollable sweating which can lead to tremendous self- consciousness and low self-esteem. The axillary (or underarm) area is the most common area, closely followed by the palms of the hands and soles of the feet, head and face.
At Esteem Medi Spa, we specialise in the use of anti-wrinkle injections for the treatment of excessive sweating. The treatment involves injecting anti-wrinkle treatment into the skin in the affected areas. This aids in reducing the sweat in these regions by thwarting the signals from the brain and onto the sweat glands, terminating or restricting sweat production.
The treatment will take approximately 30 minutes. The discomfort is minimal and brief and normal activities may be resumed soon after. A topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to the area to ensure you are comfortable throughout the treatment.
