If you are someone who is suffering with unexplained, abnormal amounts of sweat, whether that be from your armpits, hands, back or feet, you might have Hyperhidrosis.
The sweating can be found in only one specific area or the entire body. People who have been diagnosed with this condition sweat so much that it soaks through clothing and even drips off of the hands.
Excessive sweating can be difficult to live with; resulting in daily activities being disrupted, as well as causing anxiety and embarrassment.
The condition can be due to an underlying health condition, or have no known cause, being either Primary idiopathic hyperhidrosis or Secondary hyperhidrosis.
We believe that the best treatment for patients with excessive sweating is Botox® injections.
Botox for sweating is a highly effective method in dealing with this difficult condition and has been proven to reduce the symptoms dramatically.
It works by blocking the nerves that are responsible for activating your sweat glands. Our Hyperhidrosis treatment can safely control excessive sweating in specific areas where it is injected.
Many people suffer with this condition which results in excessive sweating. Sweating normally can be annoying, let alone producing twice the amount, and even more. Botox for hyperhidrosis can help prevent this.
We treat the following areas of the body for excessive sweating:
Dr. Ash Labib, who takes care of injecting into these areas, has detailed knowledge of the complex muscles and tissues for safe and effective treatment.
Before treatment, we will need to make sure that you definitely have been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis by either your GP or by Dr. Ash Labib.
Patients may be asked about the patterns of their sweating and the areas of the body that are suffering with excessive sweating. We may also like to know how often the episodes last for and if it happens over night.
We might need to know such information to determine whether this treatment is right for you and how much dosage is needed.
Results with BOTOX® may last for six months or longer and you can start seeing results after just 1 week. This varies on the amount being injected, as well as the targeted area.
For underarm sweating, results last from 4-14 months. However, the results may not last as long for the hands and feet so, you'll need to repeat treatment after about 6 months time.
At your free consultation, we will take a medical history and discuss your areas of concern. Sometimes we may advise a different treatment to achieve the result you are looking for.
Within 1 week after your treatment, we will invite you back for a check-up, just to make sure you’re comfortable and are having no problems.
Being a quick and simple procedure, we just advise you to avoid shaving your armpits for 2-3 days prior appointment. Also, if you take blood thinning tablets, to stop taking them prior to the injections, this is due to prevention of bruising.
