Melior Clinics offers Botox injections for the treatment of hyperhidrosis and excessive sweating. Sweating is a routine function of the body and is essential for helping to regulate temperature. Sweating too much can be uncomfortable as well as extremely embarrassing. People who suffer from Hyperhidrosis perspire much more than they need to and it can often affect their social life, leisure activities and overall confidence. There is however now a solution: our Botox injection treatments for hyperhidrosis which aim to reduce excessive sweating.
Botox injections can work to reduce excessive sweating by obstructing the eccrine and apocrine glands and preventing them from producing and secreting sweat. Botox is injected into the skin with the intention of stopping the signal passing between the nerve endings and the sweat glands in the dermis. The botulinum attaches to the nerve endings near the injection site and acts as a barrier. This can stop the release of the chemical acetylcholine which is a neurotransmitter that our cells make to communicate with each other and this stops the message sent from the nerve endings to stimulate the production of sweat, thus preventing hyperhidrosis.
Our Hyperhidrosis treatments are carried out by fully trained medical practitioners by making a number of small injections into the affected area in a grid-like pattern. The number of Botox injections required is based on the doctor’s assessment of the area that needs to be treated for excessive perspiration. Injections into the armpits, upper face and groin are usually pain free but treatment in the palms of the hands or soles of the feet can sometimes feel uncomfortable due to the sensitivity of these areas. To relieve this discomfort, our medical staff may use one or more of a number of techniques such as ice or topical anaesthetic creams.
Although Botox injections will not permanently stop hyperhidrosis, the amount of excessive sweating is usually considerably reduced very quickly and normally within seven days. The results of Hyperhidrosis treatment can last up to 6 months, after which you can repeat the treatment if required. Hyperhidrosis treatments are available at our clinics that covers the Cambridge, London and Kent areas after a consultation with one of our medical consultants and the process usually takes no more than 30 minutes. The Botox injections are performed by our fully trained medical health professionals and don’t usually require any change in your daily work or leisure routine although we do advise refraining from intensive exercise or the use of a sauna on the day of the injections.
