Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition and many of us will be affected by it at some point during our lives.

Hyperhidrosis is the medical name for excessive sweating – those who suffer can feel embarrassed by this condition and may find it difficult to conceal the problem from others.

The most common areas affected are the underarms, soles of the feet and the palms of the hands. Problems can occur such as staining of clothing and the condition can impact on self-confidence. It is possible to reduce excessive sweating, leaving suffers able to lead a normal life without the worry excessive sweating can cause.

What can be done to improve the condition?

Using Botulinum toxin (Botox) injections, Dr. Jack is able to help decrease sweating in those who feel they sweat too much or are conscious of their perspiration.

By injecting Botox in the affected areas, sweating can be reduced by around 90%. This works by interrupting the signals to the sweat glands to produce sweat, blocking sweating even in the heat or in stressful situations.

Repeat treatments are needed as gradually over time new nerve endings grown, and the sweat glands are reactivated. The treatment usually lasts around 6-12 months and then repeat treatment is necessary.

What can you expect?

Just like facial Botox injections, treatment of excessive sweating is carried out by injecting Botox under the skin. Several tiny injections spaced around 1cm apart will be administered to the affected area to block the sweat glands and reduce sweating.

Treatment will take between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the number of areas affected. Discomfort is minimal, however, local anaesthetic cream may be used if required.
