What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term to describe excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis can be linked to medical conditions such as thyroid disorder, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), adrenal gland disorder and so on, or more commonly simply due to overactive sweat glands. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the environment is not warm or when they are not exercising. The excessive sweating usually affects the underarms (axilla) but it is also relatively common in hands and feet.
Uncontrollable, excessive sweating can cause significant embarrassment and can often lead to emotional stress and social avoidance. When deodorants and antiperspirants fail to control the excessive sweating, underarm fillers can be an effective alternative. The drug is approved by the EU and FDA to be used in the treatment of excessive sweating. It works by temporarily 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 at least 12 hours before the procedure is recommended to reduce the risk of infection.
The effects of the excessive sweating treatment should start to be apparent from 2-4 weeks time and can last up to 9 months, depending on the individual.
