Blogs from the Doctors
Followers of our blog will know that the most rewarding work we undertake here at the clinic is when our treatments change the way people can live their lives. We have previously highlighted the benefits of Botox for giving us a fresh and youthful appearance and we have noted the wider applications for Botox; today we are looking at using Botox for controlling excessive sweat.
Hyperhidrosis is the clinical term for excessive sweating that’s not necessarily related to higher temperatures or exercise. You may sweat so much that it soaks through your clothes or makes palms of hands or soles of feet excessively wet. Unfortunately the sweating can be so severe that it causes disruption to normal daily activities and can cause social anxiety and embarrassment. For our clients then, successful treatment of hyperhidrosis is life-changing.
At the Doctors Laser Clinic we are delighted we can treat hyperhidrosis through small injections of Botulinum toxin (Botox) in to the affected area. The Botox reduces sweating in these areas by blocking the nerves that supply the eccrine glands; which prevents the glands from producing sweat. Botox is usually considered when topical treatments such as antiperspirants, iontophoresis and medications have been unsuccessful. Thankfully, the treatment with Botox is very successful and provides relief to sufferers of hyperhidrosis. Clients will notice results straightaway and the benefits will last several months.
The treatment is not a cure for hyperhidrosis – it only provides temporary relief. It needs to be repeated every three to six months for maximum effect. As always, we offer a personal consultation to discuss the suitability of the treatment and the best route forward to address your needs.
