Treatment of Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) with Botox

Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterised by excessive sweating that occurs in up to 1% of the population.

Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterised by excessive sweating that occurs in up to 1% of the population. The excessive sweating can occur in the hands, in the armpits or in the feet. It can be extremely disconcerting and make one self-conscious especially in intimate situations and anxious moments. Excessive sweating is very embarrassing on both a social and professional level.

Botulinum toxin has been found to give extremely effective relief from this embarrassing condition. Also known as Botox, Botulinum toxin has become the treatment of choice for a number of conditions including excessive sweating. It is injected into the affected area in order to prevent the sweat glands from overproducing sweat.

Primary Hyperhidrosis usually begins early during puberty, and then persist for the rest of the person’s life. Secondary Hyperhidrosis is usually caused by an underlying condition such as psychiatric disorders, endocrine treatment for malignant disease, obesity, endocrine disorders such as hyperthyroidism and the menopause.

Topical medications, oral medications, iontophoresis, and surgery have not proven to be very effective in the majority of patients suffering from Hyperhidrosis.

Botox is a prescription only medicine and would only be prescribed following a consultation.

The Excessive Sweating Procedure

The area to be treated is made numb with an anaesthetic cream and then injections are performed using a very small needle, which is the same size as an acupuncture needle.

Will my consultation be with a surgeon?

All consultations take place with a surgeon. We believe that only a surgeon can help and advise you on the best procedure to achieve the results you would like.

During your initial consultation, we will ask you about the results you are looking for and explain the procedure so that you understand every stage of the process. The most important thing is that you feel completely at ease in our care and fully aware of the procedure and the resulting enhancement.

Are your consultations free?

All of our consultations are free with no obligation. You will be provided with advice and information relevant to achieve the results you desire. After consulting with our consultant you can have the treatment on the day of your appointment.

What happens after Excessive Sweating Treatment?

After the injections, the skin may appear slightly bruised. Normal activities may be resumed after about an hour or so. In approximately 3 to 5 days after the injections, a decrease of sweating in the treated areas will be noted. The effects usually last for approximately 6 to 9 months.

Follow up injections may be needed to achieve the desired affect but this will be discussed with you during your free consultation.
