What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis, most commonly referred to as excessive sweating, is a medical condition that, while not life-threatening, does have a significant impact on the sufferer’s life. If you suffer with hyperhidrosis and are tired or forever changing your clothes and having to shower multiple times a day; here’s how to reduce sweating.
The pursuit of excellence
PHI Clinic, 102 Harley Street, is an award-winning cosmetic clinic renowned for its revolutionary technology and treatments, and its team of professional and highly-experienced clinicians. Headed up by Dr Tapan Patel, PHI Clinic is continually adopting new methods, techniques and therapies to ensure we remain at the forefront of the aesthetics industry.
A vast range of treatments
With over 45 lasers and non-surgical devices in our arsenal, we are confident we can treat a varied range of patients, conditions and concerns, including excessive sweating. Because of the amount of high-quality treatments we have, we can often provide multiple solutions for any given condition.
Botox® for hyperhidrosis
One of the ways in which we can treat underarm sweat is through botulinum toxin or Botox®. With a number of small injections administered precisely in the affected area, our aesthetic doctors can significantly reduce the sweat production for 6-9 months after treatment.
miraDry treatment for hyperhidrosis
Alternatively, PHI Clinic offers miraDry treatment, an advance, non-surgical, FDA-approved device that harnesses microwave technology to get rid of sweat glands. As clinical studies show, sweat glands do not grow back, therefore sweat reduction is dramatically decreased and miraDry is a long lasting solution. This treatment is primarily carried out by our trained aestheticians.
What areas can be treated?
The main area we can treat with miraDry is the underarms, but we understand a lot of people suffer with excessive sweat on their hands, feet and forehead. In which case, we can tailor a treatment plan, in some cases using a combination of Botox and miraDry for optimum results.
Before treatment commences, we must see all patients for an initial consultation. This enables us to go through your medical history to ensure any treatment provided is not contraindicative or unsafe, and also allows us to explore and analyse the best route of treatment for you. We take into consideration your concerns, questions, the desired result, how much downtime is involved and your preferences when it comes to surgical versus non-surgical.
