Injections For Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating, which can affect the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet and under the arms. Whether it occurs all the time or at impulsive intervals, it can often lead to embarrassing moments that are hard to conceal. Botulinum Toxin can be injected into the affected area and used as a muscle relaxing treatment that improves excessive sweating.

Injections containing Botulinum Toxin are commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the upper part of the face, where muscle movements are responsible for the formation of lines and creases. In these cases the toxin works to stabilise the contractions of the muscle and stop the wrinkle from developing. In the same way that the muscles are inhibited from moving, Botulinum Toxin can work to disable the nerves in the sweat glands and block the signals to produce sweat.

Your practitioner will inject the product (affectionately known under its brand name – BOTOX) just under the surface of the skin, using a very small needle. A series of applications will be made to the affected area, in a grid-like pattern to ensure the affected area is sufficiently covered.

Although one treatment is all that is necessary to reduce hyperhidrosis, it may take up to one week for the procedure to take effect. Repeat procedures are likely to be required in the future for long term results, which the team at Light Touch Clinic will be more than happy to arrange. A solution for improving your excessive sweating can also improve your quality of life and emotional well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I suitable for this treatment?

Excessive sweating is usually caused by overactive sweat glands, and commonly affects the hands, feet and under the arms. Light Touch Clinic can help to improve this condition if it affects your daily life and causes you embarrassment and a low self-esteem. Attending a pre-treatment consultation gives you the opportunity to discuss your concerns and outline the results to expect to achieve.

Is this a safe treatment?

At Light Touch Clinic uses products by Allergan (a reputable brand) and the treatment will always be administered by a trained professional. It is a clinically proven treatment that has FDA approval for treating a variety of both medical and aesthetic concerns. Botulinum Toxin is widely used throughout the UK, in many clinics and medical practices and is a very popular procedure.

Will it hurt?

The option to have a topical numbing cream administered to the treatment area, before the procedure, is available at Light Touch Clinic. The application of an injection may cause a little discomfort, but only while the treatment is taking place.

What can I expect after treatment?

This treatment should not cause any disruption and you can return to work on the same day if you wish. The effects of the treatment may need up to 1 week to fully develop, when your sweating should dramatically reduce. As Botulinum Toxin is a dissolvable product, it will produce a temporary outcome that may require follow-up treatments every 9 – 12 months.

Are there any side effects or risks?

Many people react positively to the administration of Botulinum Toxin, so severe side effects and complications are rare. This can include: muscle weakness, difficulty breathing and loss of bladder control. However, it is common for the treatment area to experience some mild swelling, redness and bruising, which can last for a few hours. Any bruising should disappear within a few days and can easily be concealed if needs be.
