I’ve suffered from hyperhidrosis for the past 6 years. I received my first treatment yesterday at 9:30 am. The staff and doctor are very helpful and were quick to assist with any questions I had. They had me lay down on a table as they first administered a starch test. Following that they began the injections which were a bit painful. The rest of the procedure was completely painless (Level 5). I would say it took around 1hr 45min.
After 3 hrs the pain and swelling started creeping in. By 5:00pm the pain had become intense. My chest, underarms and biceps became very swollen. I iced all day but eventually had to take something stronger than ibuprofen to deal with the pain. I also took Benedryl at night which helped.
I woke up today in less pain but still very swollen. From my personal experience there is no way I would of been able to return to work the day of or day after the procedure. I’m continuing to ice and hoping for the best!
