Hyperhidrosis is the medical name for a common condition – excessive sweating. The most common areas affected are the underarms, soles of the feet and palms of the hands. Dr David Jack offers an easy treatment that offers an instant fix.
What is hyperhidrosis treatment?
Dr Jack treats hyperhidrosis with several tiny injections of Botulinum toxin (Botox) into the affected areas. This simple but effective treatment reduces sweating by around 90%.
What are the benefits?
Using Botox as a treatment for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating will result in a 90% reduction in the amount of sweat produced in problematic areas.
How does Botox work for hyperhidrosis?
Botox works by interrupting the signals that instruct the sweat glands to produce sweat. In doing so, Botox blocks the sweating glands, even in the heat or in stressful situations.
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.
The 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.
No downtime is required after this treatment
One treatment will be effective for hyperhidrosis.
Results will be felt after 3-5 days with full results felt by day 14.
The treatment usually lasts around 6-12 months before repeat treatment is necessary. Repeat treatments are needed because as new nerve endings grow, the sweat glands are reactivated.
Yes - other anti-sweating treatments can be carried out at the same time as botox. Use of antiperspirants are allowed with botox treatments
The most common areas affected are the underarms, soles of the feet and the palms of the hands but Botox can be used on other areas that may cause distress through excessive sweating.
