We now offer botox treatments for hyperhidrosis at all of our clinics across the South East. Hyperhidrosis, otherwise known as excessive sweating, can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing, but it’s important to keep in mind that perspiration is a perfectly normal bodily function and sweat plays an important role in moderating the body’s temperature. If you find that you are suffering from excessive sweat production you likely have hyperhidrosis, and have likely experienced the issues that this condition can bring including everything from the restrictions it places on your choice of clothing through to limitations on your social interaction. Fortunately our botox treatments for hyperhidrosis can reduce the amount of excess sweating by up to 87%.
How Botox Prevents Hyperhidrosis
Botox helps to prevent hyperhidrosis by effectively turning off the chemical messenger that is responsible for activating the body’s sweat glands. Botox treatments achieve this by disabling the eccrine and apocrine glands and preventing them from producing and secreting sweat from the body. Small amounts of Onabotulinumtoxin A are injected into the affected area which then blocks the actions of the nerves that supply the sweat glands, thus preventing the glands from producing sweat.
What Happens During a Hyperhidrosis Procedure?
During the procedure at one of our hyperhidrosis clinics a doctor will administer a series of injections into the affected area in a grid-like pattern. You’ll be given multiple Botox injections based on an assessment that your doctor will carry out on the area that requires treatment. While treatment of the underarms is usually painless, injections into the palms or soles of the feet may be uncomfortable. To ease this discomfort, our medical practitioners may use one or more of a number of anaesthetic techniques such as ice or vibrations.
Long Lasting Treatment
Although Botox injections will not cure your hyperhidrosis, the treatment should noticeably reduce excess sweating within seven days and the results of the treatment can last for up to 12 months, at which point the treatment can be repeated if required. Hyperhidrosis treatments are available at our South East clinics immediately after consultation and take no more that 30 minutes. Botox injections are administered by our experienced medical practitioners and do not usually demand any restrictions in work or leisure activity (aside from refraining from intensive exercise or the use of a sauna on the day of the injections).
