Love your skin.
Underarm excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis and sweating of the forehead are common problems for men and women and are estimated to affect 1-2% of the UK population.
This can affect your day to day living to such an extent that patients are desperate to find a cure at all costs. Patients really do think this is the best treatment ever, giving them new confidence in their professional and social lives. Our patients have already tried deodorants, antiperspirants and other sweating products before coming to us to try out botulinum toxin injection treatments. Roughly 50-60 injections in total spread between both underarms is enough to produce the desired reduction in sweating.

How do botulinum toxin injections work?
The injections temporarily block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the production of excessive sweat stops in the treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere.
Where does the sweat go?
Your sweat doesn't go anywhere or get backed up, because the sweat simply isn't produced in the areas treated.
How effective and how long does the treatment last?
In controlled tests, 4 out of 5 people achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating lasting from between 3 and 6 months.
