Hyperhidrosis Treatment

The treatment for Hyperhidrosis in the underarm is multiple superficial injections in the whole area of the underarm with Botulinum Toxin Type A (Bta) The Bta affects the transmission of messages which signal the gland to sweat. Results can last up to 6 months and can be very effective in reducing the problem by up to 80%. The medicines used are Botox or Bocouture and at the initial treatment 100 units will be administered.

Once the initial treatment of Bta is administered the patient is invited back to review the results if the patient is still, experiencing more than 40% reduction a test called the minors starch-iodine test is performed.

This is known as primary hyperhidrosis.  Hyperhidrosis that does have an identifiable cause is known as secondary hyperhidrosis. This can have many different triggers, including

  • pregnancy or the menopause
  • anxiety 
  • certain medications 
  • low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia

Hyperhidrosis is common and affects males and females,  It’s been estimated to affect between one and three in every 100 people which means there are likely to be hundreds of thousands of people living with it in the UK.  Hyperhidrosis can develop at any age, although primary hyperhidrosis typically starts during childhood or soon after puberty.

You should consult your GP if your are experiencing the excessive sweating as a new symptom to ensure that there are no underlying issues which need attention.

Amazing, absolutely loved my lip fillers every time, very natural looking and gave me so much more confidence to smile. Would highly recommend Mandie, since having a year out to have a baby I’ve noticed such a big difference in my lips disappearing and really can’t wait to be back in the next few weeks, will never look back.
