Many people suffer from excessive underarm sweating, the official name for this is hyperhidrosis and it can lead to a great deal of social embarrassment. Fortunately, if you suffer from hyperhidrosis and are looking for a way to solve this issue, you have come to the right place. Dr Hennessy offers a hyperhidrosis treatment for this disorder which is conducted using Botox.
What is the Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
When small doses are injected into the skin, it blocks the actions of the nerves that supply the eccrine glands, this prevents the glands from producing sweat. One short treatment session can lead to a dramatic reduction, in some cases none, to the amount of perspiration produced. The procedure involves injecting a small amount of a solution of anti-wrinkle botulinum toxin into 10 to 15 places about 1cm apart and spread evenly in each armpit.
A course of treatment takes about 30 minutes. The effect only takes a few days to materialise and in most cases lasts for over 6 months.
Is the Hyperhidrosis Treatment safe?
Safety is our priority in all of our clinics. We have expert knowledge in the field, providing thoroughly researched and safe cosmetic procedures. Botox, Bocouture and Azzalure have been used safely in a variety of medical conditions, including cerebral palsy, for over 40 years.
