Botox for excessive sweating

“I’m embarrassed by my sweating, I’ve heard Botox helps?”

Although it is normal to sweat if you exercise or get hot, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) occurs when the body doesn’t really need to cool down. Hyperhidrosis is a long-term condition that can occur for no obvious reason or can be caused by another condition that you are suffering from including anxiety and menopausal changes. Sometimes it can be a side effect of medication you’re taking.

It is a common condition that can affect different areas of the body, especially areas such as your armpits, hands, feet, face, chest and groin.

Is there a permanent treatment for hyperhidrosis?

Unfortunately, here is no cure for hyperhidrosis, but it is possible to manage the symptoms of the condition. Clothing choices and dietary changes can improve symptoms but sometimes that is not enough.

Can excessive sweating be treated?

If your hyperhidrosis is affecting your confidence, it is possible a specialist Doctor like Dr Becky at The Cosmetics Doc can help you.

Hyperhidrosis treatment methods at The Cosmetics Doc

Dr Becky will provide treatment options after a thorough consultation with you. She may advise you on lifestyle changes that could help, discuss topical treatment and sometimes she may suggest one of the most effective treatments for hyperhidrosis – botox. Botox is a brand name of a prescription only protein, which is licensed to be injected into the armpit skin. It works by temporarily blocking the nerves supplying

the eccrine glands and preventing them from producing sweat. A similar effect is seen when used on the forehead. This treatment usually lasts around 6 months and can massively improve peoples’ quality of life.
