What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis, more commonly known as excessive sweating, is a medical condition that causes body parts to sweat without any apparent reason. Usually, our bodies sweat when they need to cool down, but in Hyperhidrosis, they sweat without the need to cool down. Although it is a harmless but highly embarrassing condition, occasionally, it can be a symptom of an underlying medical problem.
Causes of Hyperhidrosis
Generally, Hyperhidrosis is idiopathic (caused by unknown reasons). However, experts believe that the most common cause of this condition is overactive sweat glands. Besides overactive sweat glands, Hyperhidrosis can be caused by one of the following reasons:
- hyperactivity of the sympathetic nerves
- medical conditions
It is estimated that about 5% of the population suffers from excessive sweating. However, it may be more than this as many people are embarrassed to discuss it and unaware that it is easily treatable with Botulinum toxin.
Why Botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin is often used for Hyperhidrosis Treatment. It leads to inhibition of the sympathetic cholinergic nerve fibers and reduces or prevents sweat production. By injecting the affected areas with Botulinum toxin, the chemical signals coming from the nerves that control the sweat glands are temporarily blocked. As a result, the severe sweating stops as sweat glands no longer receive the chemical signals.
Commonly Affected Body Areas
The most frequent form is Primary Hyperhidrosis, which occurs focally in circumscribed areas of the body, including:
Excessive Sweating Treatment in Dubai can help treat hyperhidrosis problems in all these areas.
Several preconditions make you an ideal candidate for the Underarm Botox Dubai. The perfect candidate must:
- have severe sweating on feet, palms, and underarms
- be positive on a Starch Test
- be physically and emotionally strong
- have realistic expectations from the treatment results
- be well aware of the possible risks of the procedure
Before undergoing the Excessive Sweating Treatment, the expert provides some pre-procedure instructions. Following these instructions ensures optimum results.
Some general pre-procedure instructions are as follows:
- Quit taking blood-thinners, like aspirin, ibuprofen, beta-blockers, at least a week before the treatment.
- Stop intake of supplements, vitamins, fish oil, etc., for a week before the procedure.
- Get enough sleep the night before the procedure.
- Stay hydrated and eat a healthy meal before the procedure.
- Avoid applying any makeup products or antiperspirant deodorants before the procedure.
There are several surgical and non-surgical treatment techniques for Hyperhidrosis, including:
- Prescription Antiperspirant and Creams
- Nerve-Blocking Medications
- Botulinum Toxin Injections
- Laser Therapy
- Sweat Gland Removal
- Nerve Surgery (Sympathectomy)
At Euromed Clinic Center, we offer two techniques for excessive sweating that are explained below:
● Botulinum Toxin Injections
Botulinum Toxin Hyperhidrosis Treatment only takes about 20-30 minutes and can be performed in a doctor’s clinic. The procedure is simple, and after ruling out underlying medical conditions, the expert will begin Hyperhidrosis treatment using Botox Injections. They will apply a numbing cream to the area 30 minutes before the procedure. After numbing the treatment area, the expert will inject the Botulinum toxin to the affected areas using a fine needle.
● Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy is another effective procedure for Hyperhidrosis that offers long-lasting results. Before starting the procedure, an expert covers the treatment area with iodine or starch. It helps identify the exact location of sweat glands. Then, they will insert a cannula with an optical fiber tip after making a tiny incision. Once the cannula is inserted, they will target sweat glands with the help of a laser beam in particular wavelengths. In the end, they will remove the treated sweat glands using a grating cannula and bandage the tiny incision.
After Hyperhidrosis Treatment, candidates should follow some general post-procedure instructions. Candidates should follow the practitioner’s instructions to get maximum outcomes of the treatment. Some standard aftercare instructions are as follows:
- Avoid heavy exercises for a few days after the procedure.
- Use cold compresses to alleviate swelling or discomfort.
- Do not apply any skincare products to the treated area for at least a month.
- Only use the prescribed product on the treated area.
Recovery and Results
Candidates will begin to see and feel the effects 1-2 weeks after having the treatment. Generally, the effects last for about 6-12 months. But they do not last more than 18 months in most cases. Therefore, most experts suggest candidates go for a follow-up session after 9-12 months to experience the best possible outcome.
Excessive Sweating Treatment in Dubai has numerous benefits. Some of these benefits are as follow:
- The procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive.
- The results are instant and long-lasting.
- It has no severe side effects.
- There is no extensive downtime after the procedure.
- The recovery period is quick and uneventful.
- Candidates will get rid of excessive sweating after one session.
Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost in Dubai
There is no fixed cost of the Hyperhidrosis Treatment because numerous variable factors affect the final price. The cost often depends on:
- the expertise of the professional
- location of the clinic
- the severity of the problem
- the technique chosen for treatment
- number of sessions
- desired results
Although Underarm Botox Dubai price is not fixed, the average starting price of Botox for Sweaty Glands is 3500 AED. However, the cost of Laser Therapy may be more than Botox injections. So, please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to know the treatment price in your case.

Hyperhidrosis is commonly known as excessive sweating. According to research and surveys, an estimated 5% of the world's population suffers from Hyperhidrosis in at least one part of their bodies.
Is there a pill to stop excessive sweating?
Generally, anticholinergics, like Robinul, are prescribed as a treatment of Hyperhidrosis. However, anticholinergics can stop sweating altogether, which may not suit some people, such as athletes. Moreover, a dry mouth is a common side effect of these pills.
What vitamin helps with sweating?
Sometimes physicians recommend natural remedies to stop excessive sweating. They will recommend taking a vitamin-enriched diet. Vitamin B has proved to be beneficial as it reduces stress which ultimately helps prevent sweating.

Generally, Botox is a safe treatment for Hyperhidrosis as it rarely causes any severe side effects. Moreover, the downtime is insignificant, and candidates can easily continue their regular exercises the following day.
How many sessions are required?
