Botox treatment
for hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that occurs even when the body doesn’t need to be naturally cooled down.

Hyperhidrosis can occur in various parts of the body including the upper face and head, under the arms, in the hands, feet and groin areas. It can be a source of stress and embarrassment for sufferers, which can affect their confidence and quality of life.

Botox is a widely recognised and effective treatment for hyperhidrosis.

If, after evaluation, botox is considered a beneficial approach, you will experience your treatment at one of our luxurious, award-winning London aesthetic clinics, led by Dr Kaywaan Khan.

hyperhidrosis
treatment benefits

  • Reduce excessive sweating

    Botox temporarily blocks certain nerve signals. In the case of botox for hyperhidrosis, the botox acts on the nerves which supply the sweat glands, to prevent them from sending the signals that produce sweat.
    Treatment with botox for hyperhidrosis sufferers can achieve a significant improvement in their condition.

  • Personal hygiene

    For some sufferers of hyperhidrosis, specialist deodorants along with changes to their dietary and lifestyle habits can help to alleviate symptoms. However, for some people, these approaches are insufficient.
    Botox is an effective treatment in managing hyperhidrosis, helping patients to feel fresh and confident in their day to day lives.

  • Living with confidence

    Hyperhidrosis can be a debilitating condition as it can affect the sufferer’s decision making regarding their lifestyle choices. Choosing what clothes to wear, what exercise to undertake, where to go on holiday, even whether to hold someone’s hand, can all be influenced by hyperhidrosis.
    By treating excessive sweating with botox, patients can go forward in their lives without the stress and worry that the condition causes.
  • Long-term management

    Whilst botox isn’t a cure for hyperhidrosis, regular treatment is an effective way to manage the condition.

The science behind botox
for hyperhidrosis

Patients who are experiencing hyperhidrosis should tell their GP in case it is an indicator of an underlying condition.

There are two types of hyperhidrosis:

Primary hyperhidrosis
Primary hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that isn’t triggered by specific factors. It is thought that this condition is a result of overactive sweat glands. Primary hyperhidrosis affects approximately 1% of the population (hyperhidrosisuk.org).

Secondary hyperhidrosis
This type of hyperhidrosis is a symptom of another condition, or a side effect of treatment.

Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis
Botulinum toxin (botox) injections can control the symptoms of excessive sweating when other treatments and measures have been insufficient.

Botox is injected into the affected area(s) of the skin and works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands.

Botox for hyperhidrosis can be administered to help excessive sweating in the upper face and head, underarms, hands, feet and groin. The results last for up to 3-6 months.
