Hyperhidrosis is known as abnormally excessive sweating that’s not necessarily related to heat or exercise. You may sweat so much that it soaks through your clothes or drips off your hands. Besides disrupting normal daily activities, this type of heavy sweating can cause social anxiety and embarrassment. Hyperhidrosis or excess sweating, can be an awkward and embarrassing condition but we are here to help you and get you back to living a fulfilled and confident lifestyle. We do this by providing Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Bebington and Merseyside.
Hyperhidrosis is treated using botulinum toxin (also known as Botox, Bocouture or Azzalure). Even though Botox is often associated with wrinkle reduction, it is also a particularly effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. Botox injections use botulinum toxin to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Retreatment is typically needed in four to six months, as the nerves regenerate. Over time, however, patients can go longer between treatments.
The procedure is simple. A numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area up to one hour before the injections. Our Pharmacist will clean the affected area and make many injections with a very tiny needle. Bruising, swelling, or tenderness is possible after the procedure, but is generally minor and will go away quite quickly. Patients typically start seeing results in five days, with full results after two weeks.
Areas of the body where patients may sweat excessively but can be treated with Botox are:
- palms of hands
- soles of feet
This treatment will take an hour and prices start at £250, additional supplements will be charged for larger areas.
Botox injections are most successful when hyperhidrosis is confined to one area of the body. We do not recommend Botox treatment for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or for people with a history of neuromuscular disorders.
