Hyperhidrosis is treated by administering an injection of botulinum toxin (Botox) to the overactive sweat glands, which are identified by first applying a powder to the skin. The Botox acts by blocking excess nerve signals to the sweat glands, thus reducing the amount of sweat the body releases.

What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis typically affects; the scalp, the armpits, the feet and hands, and the groin area. These areas are most affected as there are more sweat glands present compared to other areas of the body. In Generalised hyperhidrosis, the whole body is affected by excessive sweating. In focal hyperhidrosis the excessive sweating affects only certain areas like the hands and feet.
Some people suffer with hyperhidrosis from birth, and others find that it develops at a later stage. Commonly, excessive sweating will start to affect people in the adolescent stage of life. This condition is sometimes caused by a medical problem, or there may be no known cause.
How can Hyperhidrosis be treated?
Hyperhidrosis Treatment utilises Botox injections in order to block the nerve signals which cause excessive sweating without major side effects. This stops the sweat glands from working as hard as they did before the treatment. As the nerves regenerate over time, maintenance treatment is required at 4 to 6 monthly intervals. This treatment is highly effective in combating issues with excessive sweating in hyperhidrosis sufferers.
Although sweating is a completely natural bodily function for regulating our body temperature, some individuals find that they sweat more than is needed for temperature regulation. Typically, this can seriously affect a person’s quality of life by playing havoc with their daily routine and their ability to socialise with others. Many people find that the condition is embarrassing to live with and they feel ashamed. This is both upsetting and isolating for sufferers. Hyperhidrosis Treatment with Botox offers the ideal solution to this problem.

What are the benefits of Hyperhidrosis using botox?
Botox is a recognised treatment for hyperhidrosis in people who get no relief from aluminium chloride antiperspirants alone. They must have had to try the use of topical anti-perspirants before Botox treatment. Botox treatment has been studied for many years around the globe for its benefits. Botox has been made famous for its effectiveness in aesthetic procedures, however, in at least 20 different countries, it has been approved for using in the treatment of excessive sweating under the arms.
Botulinum toxin injections are able to temporarily stop the chemical signals responsible for triggering sweating in the area that is treated. The chemical signals are interrupted and the excessive sweating stops. Injections of Botox are administered just below the skin’s surface where it is effective for up to 6 months.
