Can hyperhidrosis be cured?
Usually our patients that come to see us for this treatment have tried a whole variety of previous treatments like prescription antiperspirants and sweat proof clothing but have not had much success in reducing the excessive sweating.
Although this treatment may not be successful for everyone the majority of our patients find it has made a difference to their condition and visit us for regular treatments.
Certain medical conditions or medications may make you unsuitable for treatment but a full medical history will be taken and discussed with you at your consultation before treatment.
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.
