Service Description

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be stopped by injecting muscle relaxing injections in the underarms (armpits). This procedure is also known as hyperhidrosis treatment. All treatments are carried out by an experienced, excessive sweating specialist doctor in our Clinic. When severe sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants are not working, you may be a suitable candidate for the Botulinum toxin treatment. The body areas that can commonly experience over active sweat glands are: the under arms, palms, feet and forehead. Botulinum toxin is approved in the UK to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. Botulinum toxin is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. Which areas can be treated? -Armpits -Palms and fingers -Feet -Face including forehead, nose -Head or scalp area The procedure: Prior the treatment: Local Anaesthetic (numbing) cream can be applied to the area for 30 minutes before although some patients prefer not to use this and opt for an ice pack to numb the area instead. Many patients do not require either. Post treatment: Simply avoid touching, rubbing or applying anything on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to exercise for 24 hours after the procedure.
