Botox for Hyperhidrosis

12th June 2019

Hyperhidrosis is reported to have affected over 5% of the world’s population but not many people understand what even is. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating and can become embarrassing for those suffering given its side effects of producing excessive sweat resulting in body odour.

Having these issues affect you on a daily basis can be extremely uncomfortable both mentally and physically, as well as the paranoia of people looking at you and judging you due to the stigma of sweating is usually linked to you being overweight or unhealthy. Another side effect of having this condition is exposing yourself to the increased risk of fungal infections. However, we can assure you that you do not need to feel disconnected any more as there is an effective non-invasive remedy available to you today for hyperhidrosis in Manchester.


Solution to Hyperhidrosis

Botox, also known as the anti-aging remedy, surprisingly can be used to treat hyperhidrosis as it can temporarily halt your muscle contractions in the affected area which also helps stop the sweat glands.


The most commonly affected areas of the body are the armpits, feet, hands and face and in order to prevent these areas producing sweat, Botox will be injected into the concentrated areas in order for your muscles to stop contracting and for the hyperhidrosis to be contained to a manageable point. The injections don’t spread outwards, so they can only treat the area they are introduced to, but you could feel fresher and drier up to 6 months following the treatment.


The procedure will take under 30 minutes to administer and it’s very safe and pain free with any swelling or bruising arriving shortly afterward to be completely short lived and will settle quickly.


How long will results last?

You’ll start to notice the results of your Botox medical injections 2-3 days after your treatment is complete. You should start to see the reduction in sweat level and its estimated that this will be the case for at least 3-4 months, at which point it will be advisable to book a top up appointment to continue your new lifestyle while not having to worry about excessive sweat. Going forward, the move Botox injections you have, the longer your results should last.   


Feeling fresher and drier, especially during the summer season or if you have a holiday planned will make having the Botox treatment seem like an investment.
