Migraine & Excess Sweating

at Dr Deborah McManners’ clinic

As a highly-experienced medical doctor, Dr Deborah McManners has a wealth of expertise in using innovative yet results-based treatments for chronic conditions such as excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) and migraines. Excessive-sweating and migraine injections have been life changing for some of our patients helping them to gain control over conditions which affect quality of life.*

Sweating is a normal bodily function that helps to keep the body’s temperature steady so that all its chemical reactions function properly. Some people sweat much more than is needed to control their body temperature (up to 4 to 5 times more than necessary). This is a condition known as hyperhidrosis that can affect the armpits, hands, feet and face. It’s a relatively common condition that impacts on everyday life causing embarrassment, stress and anxiety.

Dr McManners makes precise excessive-sweating injections in the affected areas to help reduce perspiration. The toxin in the injection blocks the chemical at nerve endings which prompts sweat glands to work. Sweating is considerably reduced with results lasting for several months. The treatment can be repeated when sweating begins to increase.*

Migraine injections are also protein based. It is not yet fully understood how exactly injections work for chronic migraines but it may be due to a reduction in pain pathways of nerve cells in the trigeminovascular system. This system is thought to play a key role in the headache phase of a migraine attack. Dr McManners is highly experienced in the diagnosis of chronic migraine, management of its symptoms and carrying out migraine-injection treatment.

Your questions answered

  1. What does excessive-sweating treatment involve?

    Excessive-sweating injections contain a protein which blocks the nerves that supply sweat glands. This prevents the glands from producing sweat. Dr McManners will make a series of small, precise injections a few centimetres apart into carefully selected treatment areas to maximise effects.*

  2. How long do the results last?

    It can take around 4 weeks for sweating to reduce with results lasting for 3 to 6 months.* The treatment can be repeated once the effects wear off.

  3. Are there any side effects?

    You may experience minor swelling and redness but it will quickly subside.*

  4. What are chronic migraines?

    A migraine is a moderate or severe headache usually characterised by throbbing pain on one side of the head. There may be other symptoms including vomiting, nausea and feeling especially sensitive to light or sound. Chronic migraines are when a person experiences these symptoms on 15 days a month or more.

  5. What is the treatment like?

    Dr McManners will make a series of injections in specific areas in the head and neck with very fine needles. You may experience mild discomfort similar to pinches or pinpricks.*

  6. How often will I need the treatment?

    We usually recommend treatment at 12-week intervals.

“I can’t really describe just how liberating having excessive-sweating treatment has been. I’ve spent years worrying if anyone notices the stains on my clothes under my armpits, showering constantly and changing tops and blouses. Dr McManners and her team really put me at ease throughout the consultation and treatment. I have regular top-ups every few months and feel great.”
