Do you perspire a lot? Do you avoid certain situations, such as sports or warm environments because your perspiration causes embarrassment? Do you only buy certain colour tops, so that you can avoid those embarrassing sweat marks? Did you know you can use Botox to stop excessive sweating?
What is a Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. It can be embarrassing for sufferers, affecting everyday life and causing unwanted anxiety and stress for normal situations. Plus it can seriously limit your wardrobe choices!
What is the treatment?
The FDA have approved the use of Botox to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when prescribed medications do not work well-enough. It is a safe and highly effective treatment, proven to provide relief to 93% of treated patients by blocking a chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands.
What to expect?
A small amount of Botox is injected into the underarm with a very fine needle. One of our doctors may numb the area first if required, and you should not shave for a minimum of 3 days before treatment.
What do I need to know?
Treating hyperhidrosis is a quick and simple procedure with long lasting affects for 6-12 months.
You can go home immediately after the treatment, but it is important you do not take part in any exercise or take a hot bath or shower for the rest of the day. You should notice a difference within just 48 hours!
