Hyperhidrosis / Excessive Sweating (for forehead, armpits, palms, soles of feet)
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is not a life-threatening disease but can have a substantial impact on a
person’s quality of life, both professionally and socially. Numerous patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis
have consulted many physicians in the past, most of the time without finding any substantial, long-lasting
solution to their problem.
Hyperhidrosis is a chronic condition requiring a safe, long - lasting treatment. For patients who do not respond to topical treatments - such as aluminum salt solutions (for plamoplantar hyperhidrosis) or tap water iontophoresis - intradermal injections of Anti-Sweat Injection can solve the problem in only a few minutes and on an outpatient basis. In contrast to invasive surgical procedures such as excision, curettage, liposuction, or endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy, Anti-Sweat Injection is easy and quick to administer, and gives highly effective results without any scarring.

Minor starch test
First the hyperhidrotic area is completely dried and covered with an iodine and starch solution. The starch test, demonstrates the full extent of sweating in the affected area and, through the intensity of the purple coloration, the severity of sweating.
How does Anti-sweat Injection work ?
Anti-sweat Injection is recommended for the treatment of Hyperhydrosis. When small doses are injected into the skin, Anti-sweat Injection blocks the actions of the nerves that supply the eccrine gland: this prevents the glands from producing sweat. The effects of treatment last for several months but eventually they will wear off.
How soon does it work and how long will it last ?
You should notice some change for the better within the first week after your treatment. Your next treatment can be given when the effects of the first course wear off: this usually happens after an average of 7 months.
How effective is Anti-sweat Injection at reducing sweating ?
Different people have different responses to treatment. In a clinical trial, the average reduction in sweat production on week after treatment was 87% and sweating was reduced by at least half in 95% of patients.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
On behalf of Azabu Skin Clinic, thank you for your time and interest in visiting our website.
The first step in solving skin problems is to find out the cause. Conducting the therapy and treatment which are most suitable for the cause and symptoms of a problem is the “shortcut for beautiful skin.” Like most women, I used to have skin problems. Hence, I would like to recover your skin’s own beauty as effectively as possible based on my own experience.
I became a Dermatologist after graduating from Tokyo Medical University. When I was still starting, I had the opportunity to work with and learn from the best mentors in the field of Dermatology. Their clinics were mostly located in the Tokyo Metropolitan and Kansai areas where a lot of patients with dermatological problems came in daily. The feeling of being able to help them solve their dermatological problems and be able to bring back their self-confidence was so rewarding and fulfilling. Hence, I decided to go a step further by establishing a clinic that would not only help the Japanese people but also the foreigners staying in Japan ― most of whom are having a hard time seeking professional help in the English vernacular.
Aside from participating in domestic conferences, I also actively participate in overseas conferences such as those held by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). Attending and participating in these conferences enables me to continuously integrate the latest techniques and modern treatments into my practice.
Having a clinic located in the metropolis of Tokyo allows me to see and interact with patients from all over the world. The time that I spend with my patients, most of whom are foreigners, enables me to examine and be immersed in the different kinds of skin types and the problems that they are facing.
If you are currently experiencing any dermatological problem, it is my sincere wish to help you. Let me help you bring back your self-confidence by restoring your inner wellness and outer beauty. The process might be short or it might be long but I assure you that I will be with you every step of the way.
Together, let us make you better at Azabu Skin Clinic.
