Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is very common and is easy to treat either through botox for the armpits or our newest miraDry treatment. Both treatments help to reduce sweat and help you to feel more confident in your day to day life.
Excess sweating is a distressing problem and often causes sufferers to be mindful of the clothing they wear. Excessive sweating causes clothes to be stained with sweat and with antiperspirants, therefore becoming potentially costly with the purchase of new clothes regularly.
When we sweat, the sweat gland muscles contract and squeeze out the sweat onto the skin. When we know we have a problem with sweating we tend to get anxious which further exacerbates the problem. Stopping these muscles acting is the key to treatment. Botox in the armpit area is very effective at stopping sweating and really does change people’s lives. Local anaesthetic is applied and then 10-15 injections of Botox per armpit are done using the smallest of needles. A reduction in sweating is evident after about 48 hours with full results by 2 weeks. The effects last 4- 6 months depending on your body.
