Introduction To Excessive Sweating
Excessive sweating, also known as ‘Hyperhidrosis’ can profoundly affect self-consciousness and be a seriously embarrassing condition. When severe sweating interferes with daily activities, it can cause great emotional and psychological upset, especially when it is sweating from the underarms. It is estimated that up to 5% of the population suffers from some form of hyperhidrosis during their lives.
Here at PHI Clinic, our cosmetic doctors are highly experienced in all non-surgical procedures, including treating this condition. If you are considering treatment for excessive sweating then the first step is to book in for an initial consultation, to ascertain how sweating affects you, and what type of hyperhidrosis you have. At this point, we can begin to recommend a treatment and costing plan to suit you, your availability for downtime, and your budget.Book consultation
Factors to consider
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterised by sweating in certain areas of the body, such as the underarms, palms, and feet. This condition can be both physically and emotionally debilitating, causing embarrassment, discomfort, and even social isolation.
What Treatments Are Available?
One effective treatment option for excessive sweating is miraDry. This non-invasive procedure uses microwave energy to target and destroy the sweat glands in the underarm area, resulting in a significant reduction in sweating. The procedure is performed in a doctor’s office and typically takes about an hour to complete.
One of the main benefits of miraDry is that it is a permanent solution for excessive sweating. Unlike other treatments such as antiperspirants or Botox injections, which only temporarily reduce sweating, miraDry eliminates the sweat glands altogether, resulting in a long-lasting reduction in sweating.
