What is Hyperhidrosis?

Are you sick of embarrassing sweat patches? Dr Leah clinics have the solution!

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Perspiration is a perfectly normal bodily function, and sweat plays an important role in moderating the body’s temperature. However, hyperhidrosis sufferers sweat more than necessary, and this can be both uncomfortable and – if sweat patches become visible – embarrassing. Hyperhidrosis is most commonly associated with the axilla (armpit), but it does affect other parts of the body, including the hands, face and feet.

More FAQs

How can Botox® help in hyperhidrosis?

Botox® is a treatment given by injection into the skin. It is recommended for the treatment of axilla hyperhidrosis. It is injected into the armpit, which prevents the sweat glands from producing sweat. It is a safe, well established treatment and has been used for many years.*

What happens during treatment?

Using a small needle, a doctor will administer a series of injections into each armpit. Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

How quickly does it work and how long will the effects last?

You will notice an improvement within 7 days. Effects usually last approximately 6 months. Your Dr Leah doctor will work with you to decide when further treatment is needed.*

What are the possible side effects?

This is a well-established, safe procedure. Common side effects, such as bruising and swelling at the injection site, are temporary and should disappear within 48 hours of the procedure.

Cautions / contraindications

Botox® is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Do not undergo this procedure if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in Botox® or if you have a neuromuscular disorder (such as myasthenia gravis) or an infection at the injection site.
