Answering Your Questions About Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Dr Daniel Hunt was recently asked by Glowday to write a blog about the many different uses of Botox®. This product goes so much further than the correction of fine lines and wrinkles. One of the numerous things that it can help is hyperhidrosis treatment. 

Read on to learn more.


What Is Hyperhidrosis? 


Hyperhidrosis is the medical term used to describe excessive sweating. Those who experience this condition frequently perspire through their clothing, or experience sweat dripping from their body. Often, this will not be related to high body temperature, which makes the condition very difficult to control.

Luckily, Imperial Aesthetics is here to help.


Why Do People Experience Hyperhidrosis?


Unfortunately, there seems to be no clear answer as to why people experience this condition. However, primary hyperhidrosis has been suggested to be the result of a fault in the nervous system. Secondary hyperhidrosis refers to the condition when it appears to have no identifiable cause at all.

That said, there are a number of things that may be triggers:


  • pregnancy or the menopause
  • anxiety
  • certain medications
  • low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia)
  • an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism)
  • infections


Most sufferers are younger people, typically aged between 18 and 39. There is also some evidence to suggest that the problem has a genetic component.


Hyperhidrosis Treatment: How Does Hyperhidrosis Impact Its Sufferers?


Physically, providing that you are adequately hydrated, hyperhidrosis does not seriously damage your health. However, many sufferers report significant psychological impacts.

The embarrassment and distress caused by hyperhidrosis can negatively impact upon quality of life as it may prevent individuals from dressing how they would like, or attending certain social events. Sometimes, this leads to the development of anxiety and depression.


 Hyperhidrosis Treatment


Here at Imperial Aesthetics, we treat hyperhidrosis with Botox®. The procedure works by blocking the nerves that activate your sweat glands. This allows us to target any specific problem areas, effectively paralysing the overactive nerves. With this signaling prevented, sweating is alleviated!

This is a safe and effective way to manage the condition which can be administered quickly and requires no downtime.
