Botox® for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

Botox® can also be used as an effective excessive sweating treatment (hyperhidrosis) in areas such as the armpits or hands. It can be injected into sweat glands to block the nerve impulses that cause your body to sweat without affecting other nerve functions.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Sweating is completely normal and necessary for the body to reduce heat. Severe, or excessive sweating is known as hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis is caused by overactivity in the sweat glands which produces sweat in greater amounts than the body actually needs. Both men and women can be affected.

Treating excessive sweating

If you suffer from sweating excessively, you can be treated with injections of Botox® at your local Skin Lumina clinic in Ashford. One of our experienced doctors will inject it into the affected area. It enters the sweat glands and blocks the nerve impulses without affecting other nerve functions.

Excessive sweating treatment results

Within 10 days the full effects will be noticeable and sweating will have reduced. The effects will last for several months, leaving you feeling more confident and able to enjoy life without worrying about damp armpits and sweaty hands.
