Botox for Sweating FAQ’s
What is Hyperhydrosis?
Hyperhydrosis is a condition that is characterised by sweating or perspiration in excess of the normal needs of the body. This can be socially crippling, embarrassing, restrict clothing choice and destroy clothes.
Primary Hyperhydrosis is not due to any particular underlying reason, and can be seen as excessive sweating in the palms, feet, underarms, face and/or scalp. There is often a family history of excessive sweating. Sweating usually affects both sides, and is less at night than during the day. Most people with excessive sweating have Primary Hyperhydrosis.
Secondary Hyperhydrosis is a result of an underlying medical condition such as infection, endocrine disorders, metabolic disorders, cancers, neurological conditions, spinal cord injuries, cardiovascular disorders, respiratory disorders, anxiety and stress. The treatment of Secondary Hyperhydrosis requires treatment of the underlying problem or cause, although sometimes Botox can be helpful in treating the symptoms.
Primary Hyperhydrosis is thought to affect around 3-10% of the population, ranging in age from teenagers to 50+. Effective treatment of hyperhydrosis can be life-changing for those affected.

Where else can I use Botox?
Wrinkle relaxers can be used cosmetically for gummy smiles, forehead lines, frown lines and more advanced techniques such as lifting the brow and mouth corners by ‘rebalancing’ facial muscles, or slimming the jawline by relaxing masseter muscles.
Other treatments are available, such as surgery or chemical sympathectomy, which can both have more serious side effects, but can be more permanent if successful.
