Hyperhidrosis Treatment - Side Effects
Side effects of Hyperhidrosis treatment are rare - indeed it is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available.
However, there is the possibility of inadequate injection technique resulting in the treatment being injected or dispersed by massaging the area, this can cause a temporary weakness and is why it's so important to have your treatment at a clinic which is registered by The Healthcare Commission (the independent inspection body for both the NHS and independent healthcare industry).
When the treatment begins to work, you may notice some temporary strange "sensations" around the treated areas as the muscles that have not been injected adjust.
Who shouldn't have hyperhidrosis treatment?
Studies have not been performed on women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Although treatments are not thought to be dangerous, treatment is best avoided during this time.
If you have any diseases, involving nerve damage or muscle weakness, Hyperhidrosis treatment is not recommended. It is also important to let your Doctor know if there is a family history of such diseases - for example Myasthenia Gravis or if you have previously suffered from Bell's Palsy.
Patients who are currently being treated with amino glycoside antibiotics or spectinomycin should wait until they have completed their course of treatment, and anyone who has had an allergic reaction to human albumin should not have Hyperhidrosis treatment.
