Hyperhidrosis is the result of excessive sweating. It causes your body to sweat more than it needs to, sometimes for no apparent reason. This condition may make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed, but it’s common.
Hair & Skin Science uses a range of treatments (including PRP treatments) to treat hyperhidrosis and to help build confidence in yourself.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterised by excessive sweating that goes beyond what is necessary to regulate body temperature. It can be categorised into primary and secondary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis typically occurs in specific localised areas, while secondary hyperhidrosis is associated with an underlying medical condition.
The challenges associated with hyperhidrosis extend beyond physical discomfort. Social situations can become daunting, and individuals may find themselves constantly worrying about sweat stains and body odour. Hyperhidrosis can affect professional and personal relationships, leading to feelings of self-consciousness and anxiety.
The main symptom of hyperhidrosis is sweating. When you sweat, you may feel:
At Hair & Skin Science, we offer a range of advanced hyperhidrosis treatment options tailored to individual needs. Our treatments include topical therapies, oral medications, iontophoresis (a non-invasive treatment using electrical currents), and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) or Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) injections.
Topical treatments and oral medications aim to control sweating by reducing sweat gland activity. Iontophoresis involves passing a mild electric current through the skin’s surface to block sweat production temporarily. PRP or PRF injections have emerged as highly effective treatments, providing long-lasting relief by stimulating tissue regeneration and regulating sweat gland activity.
Before pursuing hyperhidrosis treatment, consulting a healthcare professional is crucial for an accurate diagnosis and ruling out any contributing medical conditions. Once diagnosed, various treatment options are available to manage hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating can lead to frustration, discomfort, and social embarrassment, impacting personal and professional life.
Nevertheless, effective treatment can significantly reduce the impact of hyperhidrosis. PRP injections are among the most successful treatments for hyperhidrosis. By injecting PRP into affected areas like underarms or palms, nerve signals triggering excessive sweating are blocked. This minimally invasive and swift procedure provides months of relief from hyperhidrosis.
After PRP treatment, patients witness a notable decrease in excessive sweating, regaining comfort and confidence in social situations and daily activities. Embarrassing sweat stains and self-consciousness become concerns of the past.
