What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating. This condition affects over 15 million people in the United States alone. For this reason, hyperhidrosis treatment has become very popular. There are a few options available, but we will be focusing on Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 Hyperhidrosis Treatment
During Morpheus8 treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area to reduce any discomfort.
Morpheus8 uses a combination of micro needling and localized radiofrequency heat to desensitize the sweat glands.
This eliminates excessive sweating. Typically, treatment is completed in 3 to 4 sessions, depending on severity.
After treatment, you may experience small areas of bruising, mild swelling, and/or small dots of scabbing. Generally, these side effects only last a few days, but your provider will likely recommend a soothing cream to ease your symptoms.
You should notice a decrease in your sweating within 2-3 weeks. However, you won’t see full benefits until about three months after your treatment. Unlike Botox treatment, these results are permanent and for many people this can be a lifechanging treatment.
