Excessive Sweating


Heavy sweating also known as hyperhidrosis is a very real and embarrassing condition, making the sufferers life a misery, forcing one to change clothes frequently during the course of day due to embarrassing sweat patches. But don’t despair there is an effective way to treat this problem.

By using Botulinum Toxin A (BOTOX) which is the same medicine used to treat lines and wrinkles. Botox is FDA approved for treating excessive sweating of the underarms. It is a popular treatment with both men and women of all ages.

How does it Work?

Botox is injected directly into the eccrine sweat glands which then begin to block the nerve impulses that produce excessive perspiration. A topical anaesthetic can be applied but most patients don’t need this. You may feel a slight scratch from the fine needle and will need to have several injections.

After around 4 – 10 days, you will notice significant reduction in sweating leaving you more comfortable, confident and overall stress free. The joy of shopping and wearing your favourite clothes will return once again. Our treatment for excessive sweating has been proven to last for approximately 6–9 months. The treatment will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and has no down time or recovery time.
