What it Hyperhidrosis and how is it treated?

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for frequent or excessive sweating. Sweating is the body’s natural cooling mechanism, but when the body produces more sweat than is necessary to cool the body, this is known as hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating is most common on the forehead, palms of the hands, the soles of the feet and the underarms.

Anti-sweat injections are a non-surgical treatment option for individuals experiencing excessive sweating. The treatment is minimally invasive, with minimal downtime and offers quick results. Anti-sweat injections can reduce, and often stop, the sweat produced in these areas for a period of 3 to 6 months, significantly improving the quality of life for individuals suffering from hyperhidrosis, preventing embarrassment, and increasing self-confidence.

Treating your skin concerns

  • Excessive sweating in the armpits, face, hands and feet

How does it work?

Botulinum toxin is injected into the skin and works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the production of excessive sweat stops in the treated area. Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it’s injected.

Your Questions Answered

What happens during the treatment?

Prior to treatment, your doctor will perform a test to assess the severity and location the sweating. Following this assessment, your doctor will inject Botox into the treatment area. Anaesthetic cream may be applied for at least 15 minutes before the injections. Multiple injections are then made into the treatment area. Some patients may need to have local anaesthesia such as a nerve injection block for palm treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

After one treatment you should see a significant reduction in sweating. Maintenance injections are recommended every 3-6 months.

What areas can be treated?

The underarms, hands, feet, face and scalp can be treated.

When will I see results?

It usually takes between 2 and 5 days to notice your results and 10 days for the injections to take full effect.

How long do results last?

The effects of Botox on sweating last between 3 months to 6 months, and repeat injections are needed to maintain results.

How often are top-up treatments needed?

You can decide when you need to be re-injected. This is usually when your sweating becomes troublesome for you.

Does the treatment hurt?

The injections are relatively painless and can feel like a small sting. A numbing cream is applied beforehand to make the procedure more comfortable. Hand injections are more painful so you may have injections of local anaesthetic in the wrists to temporarily anaesthetise the palms of your hands.

What is the down time?

There is no down-time and patients can return to their daily activities immediately. You may get some local discomfort and bruising lasting a few days. This is generally much less under the arms than in other locations.
