Botulinum Toxin Treatments For Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
As well as making you look better and helping to turn back the clock, Botulinum Toxin can also help combat even excessive sweating and is approved by the FDA for the treatment of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis.
We all sweat but excessive sweating is recognised as a medical condition (Hyperhidrosis) and can be embarrassing and inconvenient for sufferers.
People with Hyperhidrosis find normal deodorants don’t work for them and that sweat can go through clothing or drip on their face and body, which is not only uncomfortable, it is unsightly and can make everyday life from business meetings to social events, awkward.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has recognised that BOTOX® is an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis for areas including underarms, hands, feet, head and the face.
BOTOX® injections stop sweating by inhibiting the nerves in the skin that control it. These nerves send signals to our sweat glands to trigger them and by stopping this signal, you will effectively stop the glands from producing sweat.
The treatment is a great relief for sufferers and here at Inspire, can be done in around 30 min session, after which you can go about your normal day.
The results of this treatment can usually be seen within around 2 – 4 days however this can take longer and in all cases the true effects will take around 2 weeks.
At Inspire our treatments for excessive sweating will last anywhere from 6 – 8 months usually however every patient is different so it depends on the individual.
Starting from £500 for treatments such as hyperhidrosis you can have a treatment administered. However this does depend on the amount of Botulinum Toxin you require so prices may be slightly higher.
