Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can considerably influence daily life and self-confidence. Dr Hatchuel, a specialist surgeon with extensive experience, offers a highly effective treatment to manage this condition, delivering relief and improving quality of life. Discover how this advanced procedure can help you regain control and live comfortably.

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterised by excessive sweating beyond what is necessary to regulate the body temperature. It can affect various parts of the body, including the underarms, palms, feet, and face. It often leads to social discomfort and emotional distress and can interfere with daily activities.

What specific hyperhidrosis conditions does this treatment help treat?

This treatment is effective for several types of hyperhidrosis, including:

  • Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis: Excessive sweating in specific areas like the underarms, hands, feet, and face without an underlying medical cause.
  • Axillary Hyperhidrosis: Excessive sweating, specifically in the underarm area.
  • Palmar Hyperhidrosis: Excessive sweating of the hands.
  • Plantar Hyperhidrosis: Excessive sweating of the feet.
  • Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis: Excessive sweating of the face and scalp.

How does this treatment help with hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis treatment works by targeting the overactive sweat glands that cause excessive sweating. Addressing the root cause significantly reduces sweating in the treated areas.

Patients often notice a substantial improvement in their condition, allowing them to engage in daily activities without worrying about excessive perspiration.

What does the procedure entail?

The procedure is minimally invasive and performed in a clinical setting. It involves a series of small injections in the affected areas, such as the underarms, hands, or feet.

The treatment is quick, typically taking between 15 and 30 minutes, and most patients experience minimal discomfort. Dr Hatchuel ensures that each patient receives personalised care, tailoring the procedure to your specific needs.

How should I prepare for the procedure?

Preparing for the procedure is straightforward. Here are a few tips to ensure the best experience:

  • Consultation: Schedule a consultation with Dr Hatchuel to discuss your medical history and determine if this treatment is right for you.
  • Avoid Certain Medications: Dr Hatchuel may advise you to avoid certain medications or supplements that can enhance the risk of bruising.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water before the procedure to help your body respond well to the treatment.
  • Clean Skin: On the day of your appointment, make sure that the treatment area is clean and free from lotions or deodorants.

What should I expect after my hyperhidrosis treatment?

After the procedure, you can resume most of your regular activities immediately. Some patients may experience slight redness or swelling at the injection sites, but this typically recedes within a few hours—the full effects of the treatment become noticeable within a week, providing long-lasting relief from excessive sweating.
