Hyperhidrosis can have a detrimental effect on people’s socialand work life. Hyperhidrosis is not a temporary condition and many people who suffer have likely been suffering for years.
Hot or cold the sweating is constant and individuals can expect symptoms such as wetness and staining of clothing, clammy hands, soggy smelly feet which can make for a miserable existence. Individuals may avoid interacting with colleagues, friends, partners and family due to embarrassment which can lead to isolation and possible mental health issues.
How Does it Work?
Botulinum toxin is one of the easiest, quickest and most effective treatments available to greatly decrease excessive sweating.
Treatment of hyperhidrosis involves injecting botulinum toxin into the identified areas. When a medication like Botox® is injected it blocks the action of the nerves that supply the eccrine sweat gland, this prevents the glands from producing sweat.
The effects generally start to take place after a few days with an estimated 90% of individuals seeing an improvement in their condition after a week.
Botox® blocks the nerve endings, but after approximately 6-8 months new nerve endings grow to replace them. The duration of the effects is an average 6-8 months but can last up to a year.
While sweating is an essential function for temperature control, the underarms have less than 2% of the body’s sweat glands. The treatment has no effect on body thermoregulation and compensatory sweating.
