Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Wrinkle relaxing injections, such as botulinum toxin (Botox), have a wealth of ingenious uses other than for anti-ageing purposes, many of which you’ve probably never heard of. You might be surprised to learn that they can be used in the treatment of hyperhidrosis, commonly known as excessive sweating. This common condition is fairly self-explanatory, affecting areas such as the armpits, face, chest, groin, palms and the soles of the feet. It can be a rather embarrassing condition, which is difficult to live with for most patients, having a negative impact on their daily lives.

Consultation

If you feel as though you sweat more than the average person, it might so happen that you're suffering from hyperhidrosis and you would do well to consult with a medical professional, such as Deborah Vines at the Face Medical Clinic. Here you can discuss, in confidence, your situation and your problem so that we can get to the bottom of the cause. With that said, there is often no definitive cause to hyperhidrosis. In some cases, it could be linked to an underlying problem with your nervous system. On the other hand, it could be the result of one or a number of triggers, including pregnancy, anxiety, blood sugar levels or infections. A thorough assessment of your concerns and intentions will be undertaken during your initial consultation, before any form of treatment is considered. A bespoke treatment plan will then be created for you, formulated to tackle your issues and provide you with the best possible outcome. Be sure to ask any questions that you might have at any point, particularly at this stage. We will be more than happy to put your mind at ease.

The Procedure

One of the best ways to treat hyperhidrosis is through the use of Botox. Highly specified amounts of botulinum toxin are injected into the target areas so as to block signals from the brain to the sweat glands and consequently, reducing sweat production. It's a fairly swift procedure that can be completed in under an hour, consisting of around 15-20 injections depending on the size of the treatment area. On average, the results tend to last for several months, meaning that repeat treatments are recommended for a longer-lasting solution.

Aftercare

Following your hyperhidrosis treatment, it's not uncommon to notice slight redness, pain or itching around the treatment area, but this should soon subside. Other side effects include temporary headaches, nausea and other flu-like symptoms, for example, but this is rare. If you're at all concerned post-treatment, be sure to get in touch with us straight away.
