 Botox to Treat Hyperhidrosis

Benefits of Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Treating hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) with Botox (botulinum toxin) injections can offer several benefits. Botox is a widely used and effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, particularly in areas like the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet. Here are some of the benefits of using Botox for hyperhidrosis:

  1. Effective Reduction of Sweating: Botox works by blocking the signals from nerves that stimulate sweat glands. This can lead to a significant reduction in sweat production, often decreasing sweating by 80% or more.

  2. Long-Lasting Results: The effects of Botox for hyperhidrosis can last for several months, typically around 4 to 6 months or even longer in some cases, before re-treatment is needed.

  3. Quick and Simple Procedure: Botox injections for hyperhidrosis are relatively quick and straightforward. The procedure can usually be completed in a single office visit, and most patients can resume their normal activities immediately afterward.

  4. Improved Quality of Life: Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and interfere with daily activities, including social and professional interactions. Botox treatments can lead to a significant improvement in the patient’s quality of life by reducing these limitations and improving self-confidence.

  5. Non-Invasive: Botox injections are non-surgical and do not require incisions or anesthesia, making them a low-risk option for managing hyperhidrosis.

  6. Minimally Painful: While the procedure may involve some discomfort, it is generally well-tolerated, and many practitioners use techniques to minimize pain, such as topical numbing creams or cold compresses.

  7. Few Side Effects: Botox for hyperhidrosis is a safe and well-tolerated treatment. Side effects are typically mild and temporary, such as minor bruising or swelling at the injection sites.

  8. Versatility: Botox can be used to treat excessive sweating in various areas of the body, including the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet, which are common problem areas for hyperhidrosis.

  9. Consistent Results: Botox injections for hyperhidrosis generally provide consistent and reliable results for most patients.

  10. Proven Track Record: Botox has been used for hyperhidrosis treatment for many years and has a well-established track record of safety and effectiveness.

It’s important to note that the benefits of Botox for hyperhidrosis may vary from person to person, and the treatment may not be suitable for everyone. It’s essential to consult with a qualified medical professional, typically a dermatologist or a specialist in hyperhidrosis, to determine if Botox is the right treatment for your excessive sweating and to discuss the potential risks and benefits specific to your case.

Treating hyperhidrosis

On the day of your procedure

If possible please attend for your appointment without make up, but if you are coming straight from work, there is no problem, your make up will be removed, photos will be taken and numbing cream applied to the treated area . During that time practitioner will once again discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure and explain what can you expect after procedure. If you are happy to proceed, the Nurse will inject the treated area with botulinum toxin, this will take about 15 mins. After that skin will be cleaned and post-procedure antiseptic cream will be applied and aftercare instructions given. 

Recovery and aftercare

Straight after procedure, you may notice pinpoint bleeding and small injection marks, slight redness and swelling which usually goes down within the next hour.

Occasionally you may experience bruising especially around eye area, in this situation we recommend using a cold compresses and arnica cream to be applied topically to the affected area.

Some individuals experience temporary headaches after botulinum toxin injections, in this situation usual painkillers may be usuefull.

It is very important NOT to lie flat or lean down for 4 hours after procedure, as this may cause botulinum toxin to migrate and affect other muscles causing undesirable side effects. Also you must refrain from massaging, rubbing and putting any pressure to the treated area within first 4 hours.

You should also avoid strenuous exercises, saunas, hot yoga classes, other facial treatments, and drinking alcohol within next 24h.

When will I see results?

Results after botulinum toxin injections usually appear after 3 days post injection , but maximum results are observed after 14 days.

Check up – Top up appointment
After 14 days post your initial treatment , you will have your check-up appointment where practitioner can evaluate the results of your treatment and additional dose of botulinum toxin can be injected to some places if further correction is required, this is free of charge. Please note as this is client’s responsibility to book and attend for check up appointment, appointments made after 14 days post initial treatment will be subject to additional charge.

TESTIMONIALS

Faye Moodie

I recently visited Steph ness aesthetics for a facial peel I have to say it was a fantastic experience. Having never had a facial like this before, Stephanie explained everything brilliantly I felt comfortable and confident in her skills. I also had a couple of calcium spots on my cheek, these had always had them and never been able to get rid of them. Steph was able to remove them with a quick painless way to say I am pleased with the outcome of both treatments I’ve had is an understatement and would highly recommend Stephanie.

Mel Tang

As a busy mom of two that rarely has time for herself I thought it was about time I treated myself. I very rarely leave the house without makeup so I was very sceptical that anything was going to change that. After finding Steph on Facebook and seeing lots of lovely treatments and reviews I took the plunge to book a consultation. First impressions – what a beautiful little salon, Steph is so lovely and took the time to explain treatments and give her professional recommendations on what treatment to choose. I’m not quite ready for anything too invasive so chose to go with the Obagi face peel. Steph talked me through the whole process and explained the aftercare and results we would likely achieve. Fast forward 2 weeks and my skin is glowing. I’ve felt confident for the first time in forever walking out of the house without anything but moisturiser and some mascara on. During my follow up appointment today Steph made me feel amazing. I would 100% recommend Steph and if you’re feeling a bit apprehensive, book a consultation. You have nothing to lose. Steph is amazing at what she does. Thank you

Fabulous experience from start to finish. Steph’s professionalism is second to none, Steph took time to fully analyse my face and advise what would be the best treatment plan. The whole process made me feel very safe and secure and I won’t go anywhere else now.

Rachel Lunt

I’ve recently been in to see Steph in her clinic to have a facial peel. My skin has never looked better, Steph was so professional able to explain in detail the process and all the products that she used on my skin and what aftercare should be used. I found Steph really refreshing as she was not trying to sell me anything and was looking and what treatment was best for me. I would recommend her 100% and I’ll definitely be going back for more treatments.

Jodie Price

Steph really put me at ease when I visited for the first time today. Listened to what I wanted and advised what would work best. love my results already (lips and cheeks) even though understandably swollen. Really impressed all 3 ladies were lovely and made me feel very welcome. The salon was beautiful and spotlessly clean, I will 100% be returning.
