Hyperhidrosis Treatment London

Hyperhidrosis is the name given to excessive sweating. It can affect any area of the body but is most common around the armpits, forehead and palms of the hands. 

Hyperhidrosis can be a very embarrassing problem, with up to 3% of adults suffering in the UK. Excessive sweating is not only visible on clothes but can also cause an intense and unpleasant body odour.

Tiny amounts of Botulinum are injected through an ultra-thin needle into the areas affected and work by blocking the effects of the nerves that cause hyperactivity of the sweat glands. You will be asked to shave your armpits the day before. The consultation should take about 30 minutes, and you will be invited for a follow-up appointment after 2 weeks when any areas that require further treatment will be injected without charge. You can generally expect the effect to last for 6-12 months, though the actual period will vary from person to person.
