Excessive sweating and hyperhidrosis treatments with Botulinum Neurotoxin.
Hyperhidrosis is the term used for excessive perspiration; affecting areas such as the underarms and hands. It is a very common condition that can affect men and women, yet sufferers often leave it untreated due to embarrassment or lack of knowledge about the success of treatments.
Botulinum Toxin, sometimes referred to as Botox, has been shown in clinical studies to be effective in treating excessive underarm sweating. This new and highly effective treatment can provide relief of sweating in more than 95% of people with a minimum duration of six months. Many patients report results lasting 12 months after treatment. The results are so effective that patients have reported a huge improvement to their lifestyle, for example, going from needing several changes of clothing per day to not having to use anti-perspirant at all.
Patients who have had this treatment see it as the ultimate life changer. Benefits include:
- not worrying about stained clothes or embarrassing smells
- greater self confidence and comfort
- wearing clothes and colours you have always avoided
Following a simple and painless starch indicator test, the areas where the sweat glands are located are precisely targeted with several small injections using a very fine needle. We recommend spending a little extra time to carry out the starch indicator test, so that the toxin can be injected into the places that are causing the most problem.

Results are usually noticeable within about 7 days. Treatment can be repeated as often as required and generally, the more you have the treatment the longer you can go between sessions.
Botox treatments are an ideal way to "dip your toe" into the world of aesthetic treatments, as they are an effective, almost painfree treatment that has little or no downtime. But please take care....Botox is a prescription only medicine, and should only be prescribed and administered by qualified medical staff.
There has recently been an investigation into the practice of injectable cosmetics, such as Botox, being prescribed by a doctor in Harley Street without him actually seeing the patient. This was done by the use of Skype or telephoning the patient before prescribing the medicine, which was then administered by somebody else, elsewhere in the UK.
This is now an illegal practice carried out by some nurses and beauty therapists, and we would like to reassure all of our patients that we run an ethical and professional practice. Mary White RN, NIP, BA(Hons), BTEC (lasers) is an Independent Prescriber and has studied to gain this qualification to offer the best standard of service to our patients. Only 2% of nurses in the UK currently hold this qualification.
