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.
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.
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.
