    Hyperhidrosis is a condition of excessive sweating. Many different areas of the body may be affected, most commonly the armpits and hands.

     

    Most cases of excessive sweating have no identifiable cause (known as idiopathic hyperhidrosis).

    There are medical conditions that can cause excessive sweating. These include infections, medications, hormone imbalance, and blood illnesses.

    Sweat reduction treatment uses anti-sweat injections to temporarily switch off the communication between nerves and sweat glands. This reduces the production of sweat.

    Sweat reduction can treat the following areas:

    • Under arms (armpits, axillae)
    • Under breast
    • Palms of the hands
    • Soles of the feet
    • Scalp and forehead
    • Upper lip

    The area and extent of treatment determines the cost of your sweat reduction.

    For more information about the starting and average price of sweat reduction injections, please see our pricing page.

    Some cases of hyperhidrosis are genetic, while others are acquired. Medical causes of hyperhidrosis should be excluded before sweat reduction treatment.

    Both sweat reduction and Miradry are effective treatments for excessive sweating. Sweat reduction injections are quicker and far less painful than Miradry. However Miradry may achieve longer lasting results.

    Treating excessive sweating with sweat reduction is often the preferred first-line treatment. Miradry is usually reserved for cases that don’t respond to sweat reduction.

    Sweat reduction injections are a simple treatment.

    Following your comprehensive consultation, we clean, mark, and numb the treatment area.

    We then inject anti-sweat product using tiny needles. The injections are placed just beneath the skin in a grid pattern.

    Sweat reduction treatment takes 10-20 minutes.

    Sweat reduction for excessive sweating has minimal pain.

    Here at Cosmetic Connection, we have a range of strong numbing options available to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

    Sweat reduction starts working in 3-5 days. The full effect is seen in 2 weeks.

    Sweat reduction lasts 3-12 months depending on the area treated.

    Consistent maintenance can increase the longevity.

    No, there is no strong evidence to suggest that you will sweat more in other areas after having sweat reduction.

    If your sweat reduction treatment didn’t work, you can explore other options like Miradry and surgery.

    Prepare for your sweat reduction with these guidelines:

    • Cease all supplements 1 week before your treatment (unless taking for medical reasons)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
    • Wash off any deodorant from the planned treatment area before your appointment
    • Avoid applying anti-perspirant 24 hours before your appointment

    After your sweat reduction, there will be slight redness and small bumps under the skin. These improve within 15 minutes.

    The treatment will start working in 3-5 days, with the full effect seen in 14 days.

    Sweat reduction is a low-risk treatment.

    Visiting an experienced, doctor-led medical clinic is the best way to ensure that your sweat reduction is performed safely.

    Side effects from sweat reduction include mild, temporary skin redness.

    A rare risk from sweat reduction is a temporary cold-like illness. This will resolve on its own after a few days.

    The following groups are unsuitable for sweat reduction injections:

    • Aged under 18
    • Currently pregnant or breastfeeding

      We have long appointments to ensure your treatment is never rushed, and have emergency equipment on-site to ensure maximum safety.

      Following the treatment, we will advise you on how to care for the treated area to ensure a swift and event-free recovery. You will also receive an email with detailed aftercare instructions.
