Exessive Sweating Treatment
We provide a range of treatments to help reduce excessive sweating. One of the procedures available is also known as hyperhidrosis treatment. All treatments and procedures are carried out by a qualified experienced specialist clinician in our Christchurch Clinic.
Which areas can be treated?
- Palms and fingers
- Face including forehead, nose
- Head or scalp area
Prior the treatment : Numbing cream can be applied to the area for 30 minutes before although some patients prefer not to use this and opt for an ice pack to numb the area instead. Many patients do not require either. Please be advised that for underarm treatments, we will require the area to be freshly shaved or the hairs to be trimmed to a length of 1cm long
The treatment : The actual procedure takes about 20 to 25 minutes and is relatively straightforward.
Post treatment : Simply avoid touching, rubbing or applying anything on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. Specific instructions will be given to you on the day of treatment by our Clinic Coordinator
When will start feeling the results & how long does it last?
You will start seeing and feeling the results at about 1-2 weeks after having the treatment.
The results will last approximately 6-7 months. Your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment.
It is recommended to have the treatment every 6 months to receive the best possible results. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you.
