How to stop excessive sweating

Excessive sweating is how we commonly refer to as hyperhidrosis – the medical term for the ailment. Hyperhidrosis often affects both sides of the body, for example both hands or feet, and can be linked to other medical conditions such as testosterone imbalance, thyroid disorder, adrenal gland disorder and so on, although it is often simply due to over-active sweat glands.

Men with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the environment is not warm and when they are not exercising. It usually affects the underarms (axilla) but it is also relatively common in hands and feet. The uncontrollable excessive sweating can cause significant embarrassment and is frequently lead to emotional stress, social avoidance. Living a busy city life, juggling between work, exercise and night out, sweat patch is the last thing you want to negatively affect your professional image.

When deodorants and anti-perspirants fail to control the excessive sweating, underarm fillers can be an effective step-up. This safe drug is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to be used in the treatment of excessive sweating. It works by blocking the nerves that stimulate sweating.

The procedure is simple and safe; it can be completed within 30 minutes. Topical anaesthetic cream would be offered prior to the procedure to minimise any discomfort. Shaving or trimming of underarm hair 12 hours before the procedure is recommended to reduce the risk of infection. 

Effects take up to 4 weeks time to start being seen and hyperhidrosis treatment can last from 4 to 9 months depending on the individual.

Take back control in your life, book an appointment today. Do not let excessive sweating ruin your social and professional lives.

The venesection was painless to say the least, thank you for using local anaesthetics; highly recommended

J.H – Romford

‘I blast and cruise for years. When my haematocrit level went up, my GP did not seem to care and I couldn’t possibly wait for weeks to see a specialist. I am so lucky that to have found Harley Street MD through my research and it is the only clinic I have found that accept self-referral for therapeutic venesection due to AAS use.

Y.R – Vauxhall

I was recommended by my gym mate, I can’t thank you enough for sorting out my prolactin issue due to steroid use. You are a godsend.
