Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive and uncontrollable sweating that extends beyond the body's natural thermoregulatory needs. This condition often disrupts the daily lives of those affected, as it goes beyond the physiological response to heat or exercise. Hyperhidrosis can manifest in various areas of the body, with common focal points being the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet. Individuals with hyperhidrosis may find themselves constantly grappling with soaked clothing, clammy hands, and slippery feet, leading to discomfort, embarrassment, and potential social anxiety.

All your questions answered!

How do neurotoxin injections (like Botox) treat hyperhidrosis?

These medications block the signals that stimulate sweat glands, reducing excessive sweating in the treated areas. Small injections into the very top layer of the skin can stop these signals from triggering sweat production.

Which areas can be treated for hyperhidrosis?

Most commonly the areas treated include the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet. Facial areas such as the forehead, scalp and nose can also be treated.

Is treatment for hyperhidrosis painful?

Discomfort is usually minimal. Numbing creams and local anaesthetics can be used to reduce pain.

How long does the treatment take?

The procedure typically takes about 15-20 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated.

When will I see the results, and how long do they last?

Results can be noticeable within a few days, with full effects appearing within two weeks. The effects generally last 6-12 months.

Are there any side effects?

Common side effects may include temporary bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection sites. Serious side effects are rare.

How often do I need to get Botox injections for hyperhidrosis?

The frequency of treatments varies among individuals but is typically every 6-12 months. Some people find that the duration of effectiveness increases with subsequent treatments.

Can I resume normal activities after the treatment?

It's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and excessive heat for the first 24-48 hours.

Are there any contraindications for Botox in hyperhidrosis treatment?

Individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have certain neuromuscular disorders may not be suitable candidates.
