Excessive Sweating Treatment

Excessive Sweating

Excessive Sweating Treatment for Men and Women.

Many people suffer from excessive sweating in their underarms (axillae), hands, and feet. When this begins to cause social anxiety and avoidance of situations likely to cause excessive sweating, such as public speaking and social gatherings, this is known as hyperhidrosis.

Many treatments include powders, prescription deodorants, and other topical treatments that act to hide or cover up the excess sweat. But these don’t address the problem directly. The best way to stop excess sweating in your underarms is with BOTOX®.

BOTOX® is a class of drugs known as neuromodulators. They function to block the body’s sweat glands so that there is no sweat being produced to begin with!

How is it administered?

Botox® is administered by injection using a very thin needle to avoid any pain, bruising or swelling. The Botox® is injected directly into the areas of excessive sweat and takes several days to take full effect. Maximal benefit is seen after two weeks.

How long does the procedure take?

Botox® treatment to control excessive sweating typically takes only several minutes. Your appointment will be scheduled for 30 minutes including a no obligation consultation. As with any medical procedure performed at Surface Clinic your safety and aesthetic outcome are our outmost concern, and so only Rukhsana Khan will perform your procedures. The procedure does not leave any indication that it was performed and you may go about your day right away.

Who should not have BOTOX® for excessive sweating?

Botox® should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, as well as people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients. Anyone with a serious neurological or immunological disease will need to disclose the information at consultation stage to determine their ability to undergo treatment.

Is the treatment permanent?

Botox® is not permanent. The sweat glands that were treated will lose their ability to produce sweat over several days. These glands will be temporarily unable to sweat for upto 6 months, after which they will slowly begin to work again. Each successive treatment will work longer than the last.

What happens to the BOTOX® once it is in my body?

Botox® will stay within the muscles it was injected in. Over time the body will slowly break down the product and you will regain the function of the blocked sweat glands.

What are the potential side effects of BOTOX®?

The vast majority of patients do not experience any side effects. Common and minor side effects include local irritation, minor bruising at the injection sites, and headache. Rare but temporary side effects include short-term paralysis of unintended muscles or serious allergic reaction. Rukhsana Khan undertakes a thorough discussion of side effects for all procedures. Please feel free to discuss any and all concerns with him at the time of your free consultation.
