Hyperhidrosis: How to Treat Excessive Sweating

4 April 2023 by Omniya Clinic

Sweating is a perfectly normal mechanism your body uses to cool down. When your body temperature rises, your nervous system will trigger your sweat glands to lower your temperature. But how much sweating is too much and when does it go beyond the natural instinct to cool down?

If your bad sweating has become a problem that interferes with your day-to-day life, then you could possibly have hyperhidrosis. This is a common condition that is estimated to affect 1 in 3 in every 100 people, meaning there are billions of people who suffer from excessive sweating. 

Thankfully, there are ways to treat it and stop you from feeling self-conscious of sweat marks around open and intimate areas of your body. 

What Causes Excessive Sweating?

Often, there are usually no clear causes for hyperhidrosis and is believed to stem from a problem in the nervous system that controls sweating. This is commonly known as primary hyperhidrosis. 

For others, bad sweating can be triggered by certain things. This is known as secondary hyperhidrosis. Examples include pregnancy, menopause, anxiety, obesity, an overactive thyroid gland and certain medications or illnesses. Both causes of this condition are usually long-term but can be treated - find out how, below.

How to Treat Hyperhidrosis 

To treat severe sweating, you can take medications, have an iontophoresis treatment or have your sweat glands surgically removed. At Omniya, we offer botox injections for feet, palm, forehead and underarm excessive sweating. This is a safe and effective anti-sweat injection that reduces constant sweating by up to 80%

Botox is injected into the area of concern, such as under the arms. Once administrated, the injected botox prevents the nerve endings from sending messages to the sweat glands, which temporarily reduces sweating for a few months.

Does Hyperhidrosis Go Away?

Hyperhidrosis is a long-term condition that can be managed effectively with the treatments listed above. Botox for profuse sweating will last for approximately 4-6 months but can be extended with regular visits to the Omniya clinic. You will likely see optimum results after 10 to 14 days post-treatment. 

Each session only lasts for 30 minutes and can easily be fitted in within your work day with only slight redness after treatment. Once completed, you can say goodbye to all your baggy, loose clothes and say hello to fitted items that you may have once avoided because of hyper-sweating!

How Much Does Botox for Bad Sweating Cost?

Botox injections for hyperhidrosis cost from £500 at Omniya Clinic depending on the practitioner and the amount of botox used. These injections are an effective treatment and can improve the quality of your life. So if you’re looking to feel more confident with your body, begin your treatment journey for hyperhidrosis at Omniya.
