Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterized by abnormally enhanced sweating, in excess of that needed for management of body temperature. Although principally a physical issue, hyperhidrosis can affect a person’s quality of life from an emotional and social point of view. It is estimated around 2.3% of people suffer from excessive sweating, most commonly under the arms, on the palms of the hands, or the soles of the feet.
Sometimes people are born with hyperhidrosis, or it may develop later, with most instances of excessive sweating manifesting during adolescence.
It is estimated most people suffer with the condition for an average of 9 years before seeking help. This may be because they are not aware help is available, out of embarrassment, or they think any treatment would be more evasive than they are prepared to bear; but there is no need to needlessly suffer from this very common condition.
Sheridan France provides a simple and fast treatment to stop excessive sweating which has already transformed many patient’s lives. While it may come as a surprise to many, Botulinum toxin or Botox as it is more commonly called, is approved in the UK for the treating diverse medical disorders, including hyperhidrosis.
The use of Botox for underarm hyperhidrosis involves a series of tiny injections into the required areas. The treatment works by preventing the nerve endings reaching the sweat glands, thus keeping the skin dry.
Excessive sweating will usually end for around six to eight months after the initial treatment, and improved results can be experienced by repeating treatments every 6 to 12 months, depending on the individual.
Normal activities can be resumed the day after a Botox injection treatment for hyperhidrosis.
