Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of using Botox to treat Hyperhidrosis?

Botox injections offer a safe, approved and non-surgical treatment option for people with hyperhidrosis. As its effects are temporary, they are fully reversible should you feel the treatment is not right for you. Botox is quick and convenient to administer and provides a cost-effective treatment option.

How does Botox work?

Botulinum Toxin is a purified protein that occurs naturally in the body. When a small dose of Botox is injected directly into a targeted area of muscle(s) it causes them to temporarily relax. When treating Hyperhidrosis, Botox is used to disable the eccrine and apocrine glands to stop them producing and secreting sweat.

What type of product is used?

We use a variety of Botulinum toxins (generally Botox and Azzalure) as they each provide their own subtle benefits.

What happens during the procedure?

After a comprehensive consultation, a numbing cream will be applied to the targeted area. Small doses of Botox will then be injected using a fine micro-needle to block the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands, preventing them from producing sweat. Anti-bruising cream will then be applied to minimise the visible after effects of treatment.

What should I do/not do after treatment?

You will be given full, post-treatment, instructions to follow upon completion of the procedure. We advise patients to forgo rubbing or massaging the treated area for between four-to-six hours post treatment. You are also advised to avoid alcohol, strenuous exercise, hot baths, showers or saunas during this timeframe.

When will I see results?

Clients usually see results within 48 hours of treatment. At this point, symptoms of hyperhidrosis should diminish greatly. The results typically last between six and twelve months.
