Embarrassed or conscious of excess sweating? Hyperhidrosis also known as overactive sweat glands or excess sweating syndrome, is primarily a problem caused by the over production of nerve endings, causing a rapid amount of acetylcholine neurons to trigger the sweat glands. This in turn isn’t triggered by the natural immune response to help cool the body down and is active even during non-strenuous activities.
With the use of Botox, we can help minimise or stop the nerve endings from connecting to the muscle. This long term treatment will help stop the over activation of the sweat glands and should minimise the excess sweating.
Here at KP Skin Clinic we pride our self on making sure all patients feel welcome and at ease. With many different conditions and concerns we like to make sure everyone feels comfortable and not embarrassed with the things they are dealing with. We like to make sure we can help any patient of ours and help alleviate any problem or concern.
Pricing would vary on each patient, size of treatment area and were we are treating. Due to this being a medical treatment you would need to have a consultation prior to discuss medical suitability. In most cases, the armpits would be treated for £250 a session with a possible top up session 3 weeks later at £75.
Most patients tend to suffer with hyperhidrosis on the hands, feet and armpits more than any other part of the body. The most common area to be treated is the underarms, however we can treat the hands and feet also.
Like all Botox treatments, results can start to disappear at 12 weeks, however in most cases client have this treatment two times per year.
