We all sweat, however for some people it can be excessive and uncomfortable, whilst it’s not unhealthy it can become embarrassing and distressing. It can affect a number of areas of the body the most common being the underarms, palms, soles, and forehead.
Botox® is an FDA-approved treatment or people who sweat excessively can be used to reduce excessive sweating of the palms of the hands and soles of the feet by 80-90 %. The benefit lasts for approximately six months.
When you receive Botox injections directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially paralyzed. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat. However, Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it’s injected.
The treatment is available at our clinics in Weybridge & Woking in Surrey, call today to book your consultation on 01932 706402
It involves a series of tiny injections around the underarm area. Numbing cream is applied beforehand to help reduce discomfort.
Although once underway the injections are done quickly in minutes. However as numbing cream needs to take effect a one-hour appointment time slot is allowed for the procedure.
The treatment can take up to a week to have full effect and lasts about 6-8 months.
The underarm may be sore and bruised for up to 48 hours following the procedure.
After treatment, you can continue with your daily activities.
