How can excessive sweating be treated?

Botox injections temporarily block the nerve activity that stimulates sweat glands to produce sweat. This then prevents sweating in the areas injected.

How long does it last?

Results usually last up to 6-12 months.

Who needs this treatment?

Anyone who suffers from excessive sweating which compromises their day to day activities. This ranges from gym goers to public speakers to people in ‘demanding’ jobs.

What is involved?

After a full consultation, I will advise you of the correct treatment plan for you. During the treatment, the area will be disinfected, and then the Botox is administered with a small, shallow injection causing minimal discomfort.

No need to put up with excess sweating any longer. Botox is a quick, easy and affordable solution allowing you to get on with your daily activities without embarrassment.
