This treatment helps to reduce excess sweating (or hyperhydrosis) of the underarms. Tiny amounts of Botulinium Toxin (we use the brand BOTOX®) are injected superficially in to the sweat glands.
Our SWEATOX, treatment as we call it, is relatively pain free and takes ten minutes to perform.
SWEATOX treatment will last from between 6-12 months.
The aim of the injections is to help our clients feel less self-conscious, reducing clothing stains and body odour caused by excessive sweating.
Our SWEATOX treatment is quick and easy to administer. The results are not instantaneous and can take a few weeks to have an effect as there has to be a period of time to allow the botulinum toxin to work.
Dr May usually expects SWEATOX treatment to take up to 2 weeks to have a real effect. We will review you at that point and if necessary perform a top up.
Most treatments will last from 6-12 months before you notice underarm hyperhidrosis returning. We can then treat again if required.
