Excessive Sweating

Hyperhydrosis, or excessive sweating, is common, caused by increased function in the glands in the skin.

We all sweat – it’s designed to control our body temperature when we’re exercising, or in hot surroundings, and is also a response to a rise in temperature or anxiety. Our sympathetic nervous system regulates our sweat glands, but in around 1% of the population, the sweat glands are overstimulated, causing sweating at inappropriate times, and in excess of the amount necessary to maintain our normal body temperature. Although underarm and facial sweat may be the most obvious, it can occur in different areas of the body, and affects both sexes equally.

Botox is most commonly known and used for cosmetic treatments. Botox however, can also be used for other conditions, including excessive sweating, as it reduces the function of the sweat glands for up to eight months.


Q. Are there any side effects?
A. No, there aren’t, but you will receive strict instructions from the doctor about what you should do after your treatment. If you don’t follow them, side effects like a drooping eyebrow could occur. Botox works inside the skin for up to two weeks after the treatment, so it’s important that it doesn’t spread from the treatment area. That could be caused by other facial treatments, like dermabrasion and facials, which you can’t have for at least two weeks after botox; you can’t go to the gym, or drink alcohol immediately after your treatment either, as sweating and raising the body’s temperature could cause it to move.

Q. Can botox be used to stop me from sweating?
A. Yes, botox last for up to nine months as an effective barrier to excessive sweating. It numbs the nerve endings in the sweat glands, so they’re not stimulated to produce sweat.
