What Is Hyperhidrosis/Excessive Sweating??

Hyperhidrosis is the medical name referred to as excessive sweating. Sweating is your body’s natural cooling process.

Too much sweating can be a cause of embarrassment at work as well as on social occasions. Excessive sweating can also make anyone feel uneasy due to sweat rash and odor. 

With Botox for excessive sweating, now you do not need fancy antiperspirants or wear dark coloured clothes. Botox treatment gives instant and long lasting results so that you can go out in public sweat free and shy free.

However, hyperhidrosis happens when the body releases more sweat than is needed to keep it cool. Most common areas with a high concentration of sweat glands are:

  • The forehead
  • Scalp
  • Palms of the hands
  • Soles of the feet
  • Your underarms

Different Types Of Hyperhidrosis

  • Focal Hyperhidrosis

Focal hyperhidrosis or primary hyperhidrosis is a lifelong skin condition that can be passed down the generations.

Focused hyperhidrosis affects the majority of persons who sweat excessively. Only the armpits, hands and feet, and head are generally affected by focal hyperhidrosis.

  • Generalized Hyperhidrosis

Excessive sweating caused by some other medical condition is known as generalised hyperhidrosis or secondary hyperhidrosis.

Adults are more likely to develop this condition and many medical disorders, such as diabetes and Parkinson’s disease, might cause you to sweat excessively.

What Causes Excessive Sweating?

Environmental and emotional factors are the most common reasons for excessive sweating.

These are some other important factors responsible for your condition:

  • Changes in body temperature that occur suddenly
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Stress
  • Menopause

Hyperhidrosis is also linked to a number of medical problems.

  • Infectious diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Negative effects of drugs

Botox For Excessive Sweating

Botox injections can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, depending on the severity of your symptoms.

This method has shown to be most helpful in armpit sweating or hand and foot sweating situations.

This minimally invasive treatment helps to manage your problem by blocking chemical impulses from the nerves that activate the sweat glands for a short period of time. Excessive sweating stops when your sweat glands do not receive chemical impulses.

What Is The Procedure For Excessive Sweating Like?

Our Botox treatment professional will inject a small dose of Botox using a very fine needle into 10 to 15 locations approximately 1cm apart and distribute evenly in each armpit.

We may use a dye to identify which parts of your body sweat the most and where the injections should be given. This treatment session usually lasts for about 30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Botox Treatment For Excessive Sweating / Hyperhidrosis Safe?

Excessive sweating can be safely treated using Botox injections. Some of the side effects from Botox treatment can be:

  • Slight bruising and swelling may occur at the treated region that is temporary.
  • Mild and brief muscular weakness in the injected area.

These symptoms will go away in a week or two and will not stop you from your usual daily activities.

Is It Possible To Prevent Hyperhidrosis?

Unfortunately, focal hyperhidrosis is unavoidable. Some cases of generalised hyperhidrosis may be preventable. The most important thing is to receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment for the actual condition that is responsible for your hyperhidrosis / excessive sweating problem.

Why Causes Your Sweat To Smell Bad?

Sweat itself has no odour and is primarily made up of water. When bacteria on the skin come into touch with your sweat, this can cause a strong body odour.

The elements that make up sweat are broken down by bacteria. The bacteria at work thus produce a bad smell.

How Long Does The Effects Of Hyperhidrosis Treatment Last?

Botox is generally effective for up to six months. However, heavy workouts or extreme stress can greatly affect this duration.

Are Botox Injections Effective For Hyperhidrosis / Excessive Sweating?

For years, Botox has been used as an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis by doctors around the world. Botox treatment for excessive sweating is also FDA approved and is a relatively safer alternative to over the counter antiperspirants and other solutions

Every year, more success stories surface, and patients are able to live their lives free of the inconvenience and social embarrassment due to too much.

How Much Dose Of Botox Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Need?

The botox dosage is determined depending on the size of the treated areas. For the underarms, usually 100-150 units are injected on average.
