Can hyperhidrosis be cured?
Excessive Sweating General Procedure
Botulinum toxin is only licensed to treat under arms for excessive sweating. It can be used on hands and feet but we do not treat these areas at The Private Clinic due to the discomfort, downtime and potential side effects.
You should notice that your sweating has reduced considerably within 3 to 7 days of treatment.
Wrinkle injections for excessive sweating are not commonly available on the NHS, in some parts of the country you may be offered this treatment if others have been unsuccessful on the NHS but usually it would be recommended that you find a private practice that offers this treatment.
Children can be treated for hyperhidrosis with other methods like antiperspirants and iontophoresis but wrinkle injections are not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. We do not treat anyone under the age of 18 at The Private Clinic.
Wrinkle injections are a substance called Botulinum toxin which is also commonly referred to as ‘botox’. Botulinum toxin is actually a protein that is produced by bacteria which works to block signals from the nerves to the muscles and glands.
