Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is no uncommon 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.
Excess sweating is a distressing problem and often causes sufferers to just wear black tops that do not show when they are moistened by sweat and steer clear of lovely fabrics such as silks. Also excess sweating causes clothes to be stained with sweat and with antiperspirants.
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 up to 6 months.
