Hyperhidrosis treatment

Hyperhidrosis treatment

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterised by excessive sweating, most typically in areas where there is a high concentration of sweat glands such as the hands, feet, armpits and the groin area.  It is estimated that two to three percent of the population suffers from hyperhidrosis, with less than 40 percent of those affected seeking medical advice.

Botox (botulinum toxin) treatment is highly effective in reducing the volume of sweat produced.  Botox is a protein and a neurotoxin which acts as an inhibitor to overactive sweat glands.  Botox is injected into the affected area reducing the volume of sweat produced by the sweat glands.

What results can I expect?

As with any dermatology treatment, results can vary patient to patient, however hyperhidrosis procedures are proven to be highly effective. 

Botox hyperhidrosis treatment typically produces results that can last for three to four months.  We recommend periodic treatment to maintain results.
