Excessive Sweating

Underarm Sweating £450

What is this and how can it help?

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition where excessive sweating occurs in the armpits, palms and soles. It might not seem like much of a problem but for those who suffer with it, it can cause embarrassment and distress. Thankfully there is a non-surgical solution.

Botox is a brand of Botulinium Toxin, a powerful protein that in minute doses is perfectly safe. The toxin works by blocking the signals travelling along the nerves to the sweat glands. By blocking these signals, the amount of sweat produced by the glands can be significantly reduced.

The areas that can be treated are the armpits, hands and feet.

What are the benefits of having botox for hyperhidrosis?

Botulinum injections in the armpits will result in reduced sweating and odour. It will save clothes from getting drenched in sweat. All this goes to improve your social confidence.

Treating the hands will keep them drier, things won’t slip out of them and social embarrassment can be avoided.

Injections to the soles will result in drier feet that are less likely to soak your socks. The odour is also reduced. And on holiday your flip flops won’t slip off your feet.

What are the side effects of botox for hyperhidrosis?

These are minimal. You may experience skin redness, swelling, and bruising but this is temporary and will settle in a couple of days.

What is the downtime?

The minimal side effects will settle in 1-2 days. Results will be apparent after 2 weeks.

How long do the results last?

Around 6 months.

How much does botox for hyperhidrosis cost?

Its costs £450 to treat armpits, hands or feet.
