Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a condition that can affect any gender and any age group. Whilst it is very normal and healthy to sweat if you get hot or do exercise, you may be sweating excessively if you’re sweating when your body does not need to cool down. This is a common issue, and quite often can have no obvious cause, although it can sometimes be attributed to another condition you may have or as a side effect of a medicine you’re taking (we would always suggest checking out the side effects of your current medication and speaking to your GP initially).
Either way, excessive sweating can be a huge issue: cause embarrassment, unsightly stains on our favourite clothing, cause huge anxiety and make social situations too much to bear. In the Winter it can be bad enough but during the summer months, this uncomfortable condition can go from bad to worse as our natural cooling method increases causing this problem to increase significantly.
Thankfully, there is a solution and here at AMS Aesthetics, we have been able to help many people combat this frustrating problem with our simple and effective clinically proven Anti-Sweating Treatment using Botox Injections to treat the area and target areas of excessive sweating to treat this condition with significant results immediately. Botox is a highly effective treatment for excessive sweating. For many people, it drastically improves their quality of life.
Your appointment begins with the area being gently cleansed of any dirt and remaining deodorant.
Ensuring it is clean and hair-free, a solution is then be applied to highlight your sweat glands and the area to be treated is marked by one of our specially trained clinicians.
When you receive Botox injections directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially paralyzed. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat.
For this treatment several injections are inserted into each gland, relaxing the muscle, and instantly stopping it from producing sweat offering you quick relief from this problem.
These are fine needles and relatively low pain; however, your clinician will be able to advise you if a numbing cream can be used to reduce discomfort.
For those with excessive sweating, this treatment is life changing. After treatment, you can raise your arms without worry, and you no longer need more than one shirt a day! People who receive underarm Botox injections tend to see results 2–4 days after treatment. The full effects are usually noticeable within 2 weeks.
The effects of this treatment however are temporary, which means you’ll need more injections in the future. For underarm sweating, dryness can last anywhere from four to fourteen months. Results may not last as long for other areas, and you may need to repeat your treatment in about six months.
You can return to work and normal life as soon as you’re done with your Botox injections. Your clinician may ask you to schedule a follow-up appointment to check-in and touch up any missed spots if required.
