Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), is a condition that can occur in up to 1% of the population. These people excrete unusual amounts of sweat unpredictably, even at rest or when the temperature isn’t particularly warm.
Excessive sweating can be very embarrassing for those affected and can also seriously affect social, professional and intimate relationships as well as the self-confidence of the people affected. Hyperhidrosis can also cause painful and irritating skin conditions.
What is the solution for hyperhidrosis?
We recommend Botulinum protein for the treatment of excessive sweating affecting the armpits when other treatments have not worked. During the treatment, we inject small doses of botulinum protein into the skin, which blocks the nerves that supply the sweat glands and hence prevents the glands from producing sweat.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes around 15 minutes to complete. With a simple and harmless test, we can identify precisely areas that produce excessive sweating and target those with botulinum protein.
How long do the results last?
The reduced sweating is first noticeable after 2 days after treatment. The maximum benefit after injection occurs after approximately 2 weeks. The results last for 6 months.
Are the results guaranteed?
The vast majority of our patients from throughout Surrey and Hampshire, report excellent results from their hyperhidrosis treatments.
