Excessive sweating can cause discomfort and embarrassment, and anti-perspirants rarely produce significant relief. At Suite Six Medical Spa, we offer hyperhidrosis treatment to men and women living in Salem, Haverhill and Boston, MA, as well as those in Hampton, Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH, and the surrounding areas.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that is often just referred to as excessive sweating. People suffering from hyperhidrosis experience significant sweating in the armpits, hands and feet, regardless of the temperature or level of physical activity. Since this condition is so hard to control, many people find themselves sweating through their clothes, causing embarrassment and discomfort. Hyperhidrosis treatments can help reduce sweating in these problem areas to provide relief from excessive sweating. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we offer Botox®, ThermiTight®, LipoLife, and laser treatment using the Harmony XL laser system for the treatment of hyperhidrosis.
How Much Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost in Boston & Newburyport, MA?
The cost of your hyperhidrosis treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Hyperhidrosis Treatment Performed?
The hyperhidrosis treatment will depend on the technique being used. When Botox® is used for treatment, injections will be made into the armpits. The Botox® formula will then block nerve signals that trigger sweat gland function, providing a reduction in excessive sweating. Other treatment techniques use laser energy to destroy sweat glands, disabling them from being able to produce sweat. For all applicable treatments, we will utilize a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort that may occur during treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
All of our hyperhidrosis treatments produce instant or near-instant results, and patients will notice a dramatic reduction in sweating in the treatment area. With Botox® treatments, patients can expect their results to last up to six months, until the formula wears off. Although this isn’t as long as other treatments, Botox® is a quick and simple treatment that requires no downtime. Laser treatments permanently destroy the sweat glands responsible for excessive sweating, so patients can achieve incredibly long-lasting results with these techniques. Since the armpits are only responsible for producing a small amount of the body’s perspiration, patients can feel confident that their hyperhidrosis treatment will not affect the body’s ability to naturally cool itself.
Is There Downtime After Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
The downtime from hyperhidrosis treatment will vary depending on the treatment performed. Botox® injections offer an easy treatment with no downtime whatsoever. Some patients may experience minor redness or sensitivity in the injection area, but they will be able to return to work and other activities immediately. Other techniques, including laser and radiofrequency treatments, will also offer very little downtime, but patients may experience more skin irritation than with Botox® treatments.
