Sweating is one of the most important ways in which the body loses heat; however, people with hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature.
Hyperhidrosis is caused by an over activity of one type of sweat gland, the eccrine gland. Until quite recently treatments for excessive sweating were long-winded with variable results. However thanks to advancing technology it is now possible to treat Hyperhidrosis quickly and effectively using an injectable protein called Botulinum Toxin, commonly known as Botox.
Botulinum Toxin is a powerful protein that can be used safely in minute doses. When small doses of the Toxin are injected into the skin, the actions of the nerves that supply the eccrine glands are blocked and their ability to produce sweat is prevented.
Before a patient can be treated for Hyperhidrosis, it is imperative to be seen by one of our qualified practitioners who will conduct a thorough free, no obligation consultation and ascertain suitability for treatment.
A fine needle is used to inject small amounts of the Toxin in the affected area in approximately 10 to 15 places. As the needle is so fine and the volume of toxin injected is very little, most people experience only very mild discomfort.
Clinical trials have shown sweat production may be reduced by 83% one week after treatment and sweating reduced by at least half in 95% of patients.
The effects of the treatment wear off gradually over a period of several months. Your next treatment can be given when the effects of the first course wear off, which usually happens after 4 -7 months.
