HISTORY

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that is characterized by abnormally excessive sweating. It refers to any abnormal sweating that is not related to exercise or heat. The condition may affect body parts such as the face, underarms, feet and hands.

Administered via minimally-invasive injections, botulinum toxin treatment offers a simple and painless way of treating hyperhidrosis. The botulinum toxin injection has obtained FDA approval in 2004 for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis in patients who are unresponsive to topical treatments such as prescription antiperspirants.

FAQ

You may be the right candidate for this treatment if you suffer with excessive sweating and if prescription antiperspirants may fail to improve your condition.

Botulinum toxin injection works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, the nervous system activates the sweat glands when the body temperature rises in order to cool itself. For people that suffer with hyperhidrosis, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.

When botulinum toxin injections are administered directly into the area of body that commonly sweats, the overactive nerves are essentially paralyzed. When the nerves can’t signal the sweat glands, sweat will not be produced.

To reduce the risk of complications it is important that botulinum toxin injections are administered by highly qualified practitioners in a safe and medical environment. Botox ® has been FDA approved since 2004 to effectively and safely treat hyperhidrosis. Like most of the cosmetic procedures side effects can occur. Whilst very occasionally, mild bruising could occur which will subside in couple of days.

Botox ® injections are a simple and quick procedure. You will be recommended to avoid shaving your armpits for two or three days prior to your appointment. If you take blood thinners, your specialist may ask you to stop them for a few days prior to your injections to prevent bruising.

In general, Botox ® is not known to cause any downtime after treatment and you can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Botox ® injections are not recommended if:

  • You have a skin infection
  • You have a neuromuscular condition
  • You are taking certain medication
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding

You should avoid excessive blood flow to the area, so we recommend that you don’t engage in strenuous exercise, have alcohol and refrain from using sauna or steam baths for 24 hours.

It will take several days after the treatment for you to stop sweating but it will usually take about 1-2 weeks to achieve optimal results. Botox can last anywhere from 4 to 12 months, after which the results will start to disappear. For longer-lasting results, repeat the treatments periodically.

You will initially require one off treatment and a follow up is recommended 1-2 weeks after the treatment. Repeat injections are needed after 6 months.
