Radha's Story: How Excessive Sweating Treatment Changed Her Life


Firstly, a massive thank you to Radha for allowing us to share her story with you all. Radha came to see us as she was suffering from hyperhidrosis under the arms. Hyperhidrosis is known as ‘excessive sweating’ is a medical condition which can affect various areas of the body.

Many people are dealing with this condition in silence as they believe there is nothing effective which can help! You may have tried various creams, antiperspirants or treatment which takes too much effort and too long to work. Doctors are now saying the only quick and effective treatment is the muscle relaxing injections. Excessive sweating can be dealt with very quickly, safely and effectively with our muscle relaxing treatment.

You may be wondering how does the treatment work? Well, the treatment is proven safe, effective and a non-surgical option. It temporarily blocks the signals from the brain to the sweat glands that causes excessive sweating. Not sure about the effects? Not to worry. The treatment is reversible and lasts 6-12 months.

We initially saw Radha for a full consultation prior to her treatment with our insured nurse prescriber who has over 22 years’ experience with injecting.

We asked Radha how she felt before her treatment?

She said…

“I have always been conscious of my sweating and had thought about having the treatment for years. I came across Escape Aesthetics through social media. I was pretty nervous before the appointment as I anticipated it to be painful and was worried whether it would actually work.”

Radha was having the muscle relaxing treatment for under her arms, however, the treatment can be done for various areas such as the palms of the hands, feet or face.

Before the treatment the area is numbed using a strong numbing cream. For extra comfort ice or the VIBRATA can also be used. Very fine injections are inserted into the affected area in a grid pattern. The procedure is very quick and simple. It takes around 10-15mins in total and is virtually painless!

We asked Radha how she felt during her treatment?

She said…

“During the treatment Aniqah and her mum made me feel very comfortable and explained the procedure which put me at ease. The treatment was surprisingly quick and painless- it felt like small pin pricks”.

After the treatment the area can be slightly red. Bruising/swelling post treatment is very rare but arnica gel is provided to help. Research shows the muscle relaxing treatment results in 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment. The full effects usually take 2 weeks. We offer a 2 week follow-up where a top-up is administered if needed. In most cases this is not required.  

We asked Radha how she felt after her treatment?

She said…

“After the treatment I had no side effects and was able to carry on as normal! I started noticing a difference a couple days later and it was as effective as I had hoped. My sweating stopped and my confidence has grown! I no longer have to worry about sweat marks, especially when wearing coloured tops. The treatment has now lasted 5 months and no signs of it wearing off have shown yet. I will definitely be booking Escape Aesthetics again for my next treatment”.

Thank you for taking the time to read our clients experience with her hyperhidrosis treatment.
