Hope for sufferers of excessive sweating

botox for sweatingExcessive sweating can be debilitating for its sufferers, causing physical discomfort and a lack of self-esteem and self worth. One of the treatments that we offer regularly at Good Skin Days is medically proven to help with this very problem.

Hyperhidrosis is a relatively common condition affects about 1 in 100 people in the UK. Sweating is a natural function of the body, to regulate body temperature and as a reaction to a rise in body temperature or anxiety. It is regulated by the nervous system, which normally functions appropriately in healthy people. In some people however, the system is over-reactive and creates sweat inappropriately and in far greater amounts than is needed to regulate the body temperature.

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) affects both men and women in equal numbers and does not appear to be affected by lifestyle or cultural background. It is usually not a temporary problem and many sufferers have experienced the symptoms of excessive sweating for many years.

Whilst a certain degree of sweating from the underarm area (axillae) is socially accepted, sufferers of excessive sweating are often forced to change what they are wearing throughout the day to avoid damp marks on their clothing. They can feel less confident in social situations and may stop going out altogether.

Botox for sweating

There are fairly few treatments available that have been proven effective in dealing with excessive sweating, but one that has had success, is the use of Botox. Botox has been medically proven to reduce sweat formation on the skin and it is specifically licensed in the UK for treating localized hyperhidrosis of the armpits.

At the clinic we’ve even seen it used to treat excessive sweating in elite athletes!

Botox (or Botulinum Toxin) is a natural and purified protein, which blocks the signals from the brain to the sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat that is produced. Patients should be able to see a marked improvement 48 hours after the treatment and results can last from 6 to 12 months.
