EXCESSIVE SWEATING OR HYPERHIDROSIS

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterised by excessive sweating. Both men and women can be affected and it tends to be noticed in the palms, soles, armpits and sometimes the face and scalp.

But you don’t have to have hyperhidrosis to benefit from this treatment. You can have our anti-sweat treatment to reduce sweat when you get nervous or exercise.

Sweating can be embarrassing and sometimes antiperspirants alone don’t cut it. If your sweating is impacting on your confidence and lifestyle choices then it might be time to consider treatment options.

SWEAT REDUCTION TREATMENT

At Artisan we offer a simple anti-sweating treatment that reduces sweat production so that you can live life without being self-conscious. Our sweat-reduction treatment involves a few tiny injections to the treatment area using the same substance that controls muscle spasms in medical conditions like cerebral palsy. The treatment itself only takes a matter of minutes to complete with no fuss or down time.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The injectable substance works to temporarily block the neurotransmitters that stimulate sweat production. The sweat glands are then unable to produce the same excessive amount of sweat in the treated area.

WHEN WILL I NOTICE RESULTS?

An improvement can be noticed a few days after treatment, though full effects are usually noticeable after 2 weeks. Some patients experience no perspiration at all in the treated area while others experience a dramatic reduction in the amount of sweat produced.

WHO WILL PERFORM MY TREATMENT?

At Artisan you will only ever receive treatment from a qualified medical professional.

HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?

The effects of treatment typically last around 8 months. You can book future sessions with your clinician as needed.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OR DOWN TIME?

Our anti-sweat treatment requires no downtime. Short term side effects can include swelling, redness, tenderness or bruising at the treatment site. However these are all normal responses and typically subside after a couple of days. Consult with your Artisan clinician for full details about possible side effects and benefits of treatment.
