Of course, you will have tried off the shelf products to help reduce sweating, but if these haven’t worked, then a course of injections including Botox ® could work.
Botox isn’t just for those who want their skin to appear tighter and younger. Because it limits the amount of muscle activity, it can also block the signals to your sweat glands, which are what is encouraging your body to produce more sweat.
Results can be seen as quickly as within a few days, normally lasting between three to six months. You can have injections as often as you need to, in order to lead a normal life, and bring your perspiration under control.
Anaesthetic is not normally required as the procedure is relatively painless, and there is no need to take any time off work. No-one need know that you are receiving the treatment and yet you can go about your daily life, without worrying about your condition.
At Liberate, we carry out many such treatments each year. Thousands of people suffer from hyperhidrosis, but with our help, you might not be one of them.
Once you have chosen your surgeon, there are a number of ways to make contact and arrange your initial consultation.
You can send your questions via the contact us page or email us directly here and a member of the Liberate team will contact you to answer any questions you may have and book your appointment.
The next step is to meet the surgeon of your choice. It is likely he/ she consults at two or three different hospitals; we can help you determine which location would be most convenient for you.
During an initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you your concerns and examine you to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for surgery.
He/ She will comprehensively explain what is involved in your procedure and discuss any possible risks associated with the procedure. This will be your first chance to ask all those questions!
Be sure to ask to see the surgeon’s before and after photographs. He/ She will be able to show you photographs of patients in a similar situation to yourself. This can be very useful for you to view the surgeon’s previous results to get an idea of what can be achieved.
Following your initial consultation, your surgeon will ask you to take time to think over all the information you have been given and talk it over with your friends and family. It is best practice for the surgeon to invite you back for a second consultation before you go ahead with any surgery.
This is a good opportunity to ask any questions that may have arisen since your first appointment. The surgeon will go through the procedure in more detail and ensure you have realistic expectations of the results possible.
When all your questions and concerns have been answered, the surgeon’s secretary will arrange a convenient date for your surgery. Try to avoid any important dates and events which may clash with your recovery period.
Each patient is different and it is difficult to predict how long your recovery will take. If you have young children make sure you have appropriate child care in place in order for you to recuperate and relax at home without having to look after the children.
With Liberate surgeons, you can rest assured that you will be looked after: before, during, following your surgery and beyond.
All Liberate surgeons make it a priority to see you following your surgery and are available for follow-up appointments.
You’ll be seen by the surgeon who operated on you – not a nurse or a different surgeon. It’s important to us that you see the surgeon you know already.
At Liberate, aftercare is for life.
