Sweating is the body’s way of cooling down, but excessive sweating – or hyperhidrosis – is a surprisingly common condition that can bring misery and embarrassment; in the past this has been challenging to treat.
Overactive sweat glands drench the skin, soaking into clothing and leaving you physically uncomfortable and often socially self-conscious. Despite excellent personal hygiene, odour can build up which can affect your confidence at work and around friends.
For excessive underarm sweating, the problem can be solved very effectively with Botox® anti-sweat injections, a nearly pain-free procedure which can be performed quickly and safely in approximately 20 minutes at Arden House.
How does it work?
Botulinum Toxin A, which has been used by doctors for decades to treat facial tics and muscle spasms, is administered by tiny injections which stops your nerves from sending messages to activate the sweat glands.
How long does it last?
Clinical improvement generally occurs within the first week after injection and lasts four to seven months.
Is it suitable for me?
Botox® is a prescription only medicine and should only be used where it is deemed appropriate by a qualified health professional following a consultation.
