What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition resulting in excessive sweating usually in the armpits or on the palms, feet or head. While sweating is normal and necessary to regulate the temperature of the body, excessive sweating at times can be embarrassing, inconvenient and disruptive to normal daily activities.Treatment for hyperhidrosis involves injecting one of the neuromodulators, Botox, Xeomin or Dysport, into the affected area. The injections block the nerves that supply the eccrine gland and stop the sweating from occurring.

Who is Hyperhidrosis for?

Injectable treatments for hyperhidrosis are appropriate for men and women with mild to moderate symptoms. It is typically recommended that patients try topical treatments to control hyperhidrosis before resulting to neuromodulator injections. Having realistic expectations is also important before undergoing treatment.

Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale will conduct a thorough pre-treatment consultation to discuss your concerns and goals. With this information, we can best determine if hyperhidrosis treatment is the right choice for you.

What Should I Expect after Hyperhidrosis?

Reduced perspiration is generally noticeable two to four days after hyperhidrosis treatment. Full effects often take about two weeks. The treatment will minimize sweating in one localized area of the body, but it will not impact normal, healthy sweating in other areas. Most patients have success after just one treatment. How long the treatment lasts varies from patient to patient and can depend on your lifestyle choices and level of activity. However, results typically last for several months and can potentially last for up to six months before re-treatment is necessary.

What Does a Hyperhidrosis Treatment Consist of?

Neuromodulator injections to address hyperhidrosis are outpatient procedures performed by doctors, nurses and licensed aestheticians at Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale. To prepare for your treatment, it is important to understand and follow these guidelines. Avoid massages or laying directly on the treated area for four to six hours post-treatment. Waxing, tweezing and bleaching are best avoided at least 24-hours prior to your injections. Discontinue aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen about two weeks before receiving treatment to reduce the opportunity for bruising. If you take prescription blood thinners, it can increase your risk of bruising. Please discuss this with us, but do not discontinue any prescribed medications without having a discussion with your prescribing doctor.

On the day of your appointment, arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled procedure to allow time for paperwork and questions. Once you are comfortable in our treatment room, a nurse will mark the areas for treatment and begin injecting the neuromodulator. The process takes approximately thirty minutes total. Most patients report, at most, minimal discomfort such as a slight pinching, stinging or burning sensation. This can often be controlled with a topical anesthetic, if necessary.

You are free to return home or to work immediately after your treatment. Some swelling, bruising or redness in the treatment area is normal and can typically be controlled with cold compresses and Tylenol or ibuprofen. Do not rub or massage the area for a few hours. Avoid strenuous activity for the first day after treatment. If you have questions or concerns, give our office a call.
