Everyone sweats – it’s part of being human, helping us cool down when we overheat but excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, can be a problem.
Excessive sweating occurs because your sweat glands produce too much moisture, drenching the skin and soaking into clothing. Despite excellent personal hygiene, odour can occur and build up affecting individuals’ relationships at work and around friends.

Many people are not aware that Botox can actually be used to treat excessive sweating. Botox works by blocking the signals from your nerves to your sweat glands and thus no sweat is produced. The injections are temporary and are generally effective for around 6 months, though regular treatment with lengthen each injection, laying a foundation for the future. Contrary to what many people believe, there is no backlog of sweat once the treatment wears off, the injections simply prevent the sweat from existing altogether.
Excessive sweating and loss of confidence
Whether you have been suffering from excessive sweating for a few weeks or several years, it can damage your confidence and alter elements of your day-to-day routine, for example, many people who suffer from hyperhidrosis frequently have to carry a change of clothes and some may even take different routes walking around in a bid to avoid people they know. As Botox now exists to treat excessive sweating, there’s no reason why you should have to suffer anymore.
