EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Treatment for Hyperhidrosis 

Non-Surgical Treatment for

EXCESSIVE SWEATING

WHY IS EXCESSIVE SWEATING A PROBLEM?

Quality of Life

HYPERHIDROSIS: Sweating more than what is required to manage body temperature

It can create limitations with work, social life and leisure. As a result, it often causes emotional and psychological stress.

Bad Odour from Sweating

Increased moisture from sweating can become a breeding ground for bacterial growth, which in turn raises the levels of odour from that body part.

  • UNDERARM (AXILLARY HYPERHIDROSIS)

    UNDERARM (AXILLARY HYPERHIDROSIS)

    Often the most challenging to a person’s day to day quality of life. Anxiety, stress or humidity are common triggers. Treatment is simple, and there is a HIGH success rate.
  • PALMS (PALMAR HYPERHIDROSIS)

    PALMS (PALMAR HYPERHIDROSIS)

    Palmar Hyperhidrosis has a massive impact at work, as handshakes are a large part of daily life. As a result, this is a real confidence blow to people with ‘sweaty palms’. Treatment achieves reduced sweat gland action, without affecting function.
  • FEET (PLANTAR HYPERHIDROSIS)

    FEET (PLANTAR HYPERHIDROSIS)

    “Sweaty feet” can be tough because of the foot odour stigma. There is only a small link between increased sweating and odour. However, a warm and moist environment in shoes enables bacterial growth and odour formation.
  • UNDERARM (AXILLARY HYPERHIDROSIS)

    UNDERARM (AXILLARY HYPERHIDROSIS)

    Perhaps the most challenging type of Hyperhidrosis to an individual’s day to day quality of life. Can be triggered by anxiety, stress or humidity. Treatment is very simple and there is a high success rate involved
  • PALMS (PALMAR HYPERHIDROSIS)

    PALMS (PALMAR HYPERHIDROSIS)

    Palmar Hyperhidrosis has a large impact at work – handshakes are a large part of most occupations and this is a real confidence hit to people with ‘sweaty palms’. Treatment involves injecting the palms reducing sweat gland action without affecting regular function of the hands
  • FEET (PLANTAR HYPERHIDROSIS)

    FEET (PLANTAR HYPERHIDROSIS)

    Profuse sweating of the feet can be embarrassing because of the associated foot odour stigma. Whilst there is only an indirect link between hyperhidrosis and odour, the warm and moist environment in shoes enables bacterial growth and odour formation

“The confidence boost is amazing. I cannot recommend Dr Shah highly enough to anybody who is thinking about having a non surgical procedure”

Hyperhidrosis Treatment with Botox Does Botox stop you sweating?

Yes, it does. Botox is a very effective way to treat excessive sweating at the armpits, hands and feet. While it is well known for its anti-ageing benefits, it also inhibits Eccrine sweat glands. This stops sweat production in the treated areas.

How long does Botox for Excessive Sweating take to work? How long do effects last?

The effects of Botox are felt from around a week, and on average last for six to nine months. We welcome patients to return for a review. This is usually four weeks after treatment.

Does Armpit Botox reduce bad odour?

Yes! Increased moisture from excessive sweating can become a breeding ground for bacterial growth. Bacteria break down sweat into acids that eventually cause odours. Therefore after treatment, patients feel more confident.

Does getting Botox in your armpits hurt?

As with many injection treatments, there is some slight discomfort. However, using numbing cream helps.

Is Botox for Excessive Sweating safe? Aftercare: What should you not do after Hyperhidrosis Treatment?

Yes! Botox is the most conservative treatment for Excessive Sweating. We can achieve an improved quality of life, albeit without surgery.  

Aftercare Instructions:

  • Do not touch/massage the treated area for 6 hours.
  • Stay upright for 3 – 4 hours.
  • Refrain from exercise for 48 hours after treatment.
  • Do not have any other procedures in the same area.
  • Avoid vitamin E, aspirin and alcohol. Do not apply deodorant until the following morning.
