Excessive sweating / Hyperhidrosis
Botulinum toxins can help deactivate the nerves which activate sweat glands and therefore result in up to 90% less sweating in affected areas.
Indication: up to 90% reduction in sweating in armpits, hands and feet.
Effects typically take 3 days to 2 weeks to show.
Are you suitable?
Sweating is a normal physiological response to cool the body down when the body is under stress or ‘overheated’. However, excessive sweating or ‘hyperhidrosis’ can occur when sweating occurs in unexpected situations or in excess quantities. Excessive sweating/ ‘hyperhidrosis’ commonly affect the under arms, the hands and the soles of the feet.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes to complete for two areas affected by excessive sweating/hyperhidrosis.
When will I see results?
The ‘drying’ effects typically start to show in a matter of days and reach a peak at 2 weeks.
When can you return to normal activities?
The injections will result in mild swelling and redness which usually resolves after 30 minutes. Applying ice can speed up the process. Normal activities can be resumed shortly after the procedure. However, strenuous activities such as going to the gym should ideally be avoided in the first 24 hours.
How long will the results last?
The ‘drying’ effects can be expected to last between 4 – 14 months in the case of excessive sweating in the under arms and in areas such as the palms and the soles, the effects are typically shorter and last around 6 months.
