Hyperhidrosis

At GP Matters we provide Botox injections for excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) with effective results by an experienced specialist doctor.

When severe sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants are not working, you may be a candidate for  Botox treatment. .

Botox is very effective to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. It is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. 

Underarm Sweating:
Prior to the treatment: The night before the procedure you should shave your armpits.

The day of the treatment you should wash off any deodorant prior to your appointment and  you should wear an old top to avoid staining of your favourite top with the iodine dye used to identify the sweat glands.

The actual procedure takes about 20 to 30 minutes and is totally straightforward. A series of small amounts of Botulinum toxin injections are performed at the identified underarm areas through a very fine needle.

Post Treatment
Simply avoid touching, rubbing or apply anything (ie. deodorants) on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to shower on the same day of the treatment or exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. Specific instruction will be given.

Duration
You will get the result at about 72 hours after having the treatment.

Your next treatment can be given when the effects of the first course wear off. This usually happens after 4 to 9 months. Then your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment.
It is recommended to have the treatment every 6 months to receive the best possible results.

Cooling-off period
The procedure can sometimes be performed on the same day, but for those new to the procedure or that have medical issues, a “cooling-off period” is generally recommended, followed by another scheduled appointment.

Please shave under your arms. Do not use deodorant during the 24 hours prior to your appointment time. Please wear an old top to avoid staining of your favourite top with the iodine dye used to identify the sweat glands.

The treatment involves an iodine solution and starch powder being applied to your arm pits in order for us to identify the areas that you sweat. This will be followed by a series of small injections into the skin. The needles are very fine and the amount injected each time is tiny. Although there is some stinging the whole procedure takes approximately twenty minutes and is not too uncomfortable.

Simply avoid touching, rubbing or apply anything (ie. deodorants) on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to shower on the same day of the treatment or exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. Specific instruction will be given.

Botulinum Toxin, otherwise known as ‘Botox’ is a treatment given by injection into the skin. It is a preparation of protein and when small doses are injected into the skin, it blocks the signals from the nervous system that supply the sweat glands; this stops them working so hard and prevents them from producing so much sweat.

Botox is not a permanent cure and some people may get greater benefit than others. In hyperhidrosis Botox helps to stop or greatly reduce the symptoms. This will usually happen within two weeks of treatment and the effects may last between four and nine months. If you find that this treatment has helped you, it can be repeated, this will give you the greatest benefit.

Most common side effects are: sweating in sites other than armpits, swelling, stinging and pain in the injection site, headache and hot flushes.
Less common: nausea, itching, temporary muscle pain and weakness, joint stiffness, pain in armpits.
