Hyperhidrosis treatment

Hyperhidrosis is the medical name for excess sweating. If you find you’re sweating excessively when the room isn’t too hot and you’re not doing exercise, you may be suffering from the medical condition hyperhidrosis. This is when an above-average amount of sweat is being produced by your sweat glands for no good reason. It can be an embarrassing problem.

Expert Botox treatment is highly effective, non-invasive, safe, and potentially life-enhancing. Botox administered into relevant areas of the body will stop sweat production by sending a chemical-blocking signal to the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.

Hyperhidrosis treatment sessions usually last around 20 minutes. During your consultation with us, you’ll be advised how many sessions will be needed to shut down the sweat glands completely, and the results you can expect.

Although there may be some bruising at the injection site in the days afterwards, you should be able to resume all your normal daily activities immediately after treatment. At most, you may wish to allow for 24 hours of downtime.

You may notice the initial results of your treatment 2-3 days afterwards, but optimal results should be expected approximately 14 days after treatment. Sweat production may be halted for up to 4-6 months. Top-up treatments can be administered by our Newmarket team to ensure your hyperhidrosis doesn’t return.

Botox is Botulinum Toxin; a muscle relaxant, which is administered via injection into the relevant parts of the body by Rebecca, our highly experienced nurse-practitioner and prescriber. Local anaesthetic cream may be applied to the injection site beforehand.

Botox has an excellent safety record and complications are extremely rare. Swelling or bruising at the injection site are common side effects, but they recede very quickly.

We advise that you avoid strenuous exercise or extreme heat for 48 hours. Other tips may be given immediately following treatment, and for the best possible results, a 2 week follow-up appointment may be necessary.
