Excessive Sweating

Sweating is a normal process that facilitates heat loss from the body, but can also be induced by emotion (e.g. fear or anxiety). Excessive sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis, of the axillae (under arm area) is a common problem that affects 1% of the population, both men and women. It can be extremely inconvenient and embarrassing, and can limit the type or colour of clothing sufferers feel comfortable wearing. Many people with hyperhidrosis feel embarrassed and avoid talking about their condition, and too often it goes untreated. Surgical treatment of under arm hyperhidrosis involves removal of the sweat glands. Relapse rates for this type of procedure are high, as are the risks of unwanted effects.

Treating hyperhidrosis with Botulinum toxin injections

Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a highly effective, non-surgical treatment for under arm hyperhidrosis with minimal risks. Tiny amounts are injected into the under arm area which then block the nerves that activate the sweat glands. Most patients report a greater than 90% reduction in localised sweating following treatment. Results will typically be seen within 3-5 days of treatment with the full effect evident within 2 weeks. New nerve re-growth occurs in 6-12 weeks with the effect gradually wearing off within 4-6 months, at which point a repeat treatment may be necessary.

What does the procedure involve?

Treatment for hyperhidrosis takes around 45 minutes. A dye may be used to establish the areas where perspiration is greatest. Several injections with an ultra-fine needle are made into the under arm area. Although the treatment is not painful, a topical anesthetic can be applied 30 minutes before the procedure to reduce discomfort, although this is not normally required. You may experience slight bruising, and a mild tingling around the area treated lasting 2-3 days after treatment. Discomfort can be alleviated by cooling with an ice-pack. Repeat injections may be required to reduce sweating to the desired level.
