"Having my sweating problem treated has been a life-saver. I first had the treatment for my wedding and it was so successful and liberating that I have had regular treatments ever since. Thanks Dermaskin" - Naomi L. (Cardiff)
Botox for Sweating (Botox for Hyperhidrosis)
(From £375 both armpits) – Excessive sweating due to hyperhidrosis forces men and women to change their clothes every few hours, limits personal style, ruins fabrics, and erodes self-confidence. Hence, our Botox Hyperhidrosis Clinic in Cardiff (or Bristol, Manchester) provides one of the best recommended treatment for excessive sweating (Botox injections) at very competitive rates.
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2-3% of westerners reported to suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around the age 13 (on the average). Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life.
Sweating is embarrassing, it stains clothes, ruins romance, and complicates business and social interactions. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands.
What is the cause of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)?
Although neurologic, metabolic, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause excessive sweating, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all the time, regardless of their mood or the weather.

How do I prepare for Botox for Sweating treatment?
Do nothing differently. Just go about your day to day activities as normal. Your skin will be cleaned at the time of the procedure so try not to use any products or cosmetics. Do not use any anti-perspirant the day before the treatment or try and wash any residue off as best you can.
How does Botox for Sweating work?
This revolutionary anti-ageing treatment, commonly known as Botox (BOtulinum TOXin), but approved for cosmetic use under the brand name, Vistabel, is the most popular such treatment in the world, prescribed by doctors to eliminate wrinkles in the upper third of the face. This includes forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows and crows’ feet around the eyes. Very fine needles are used so there is no scarring and you can resume your usual activities immediately after treatment.
How long does Botox for Sweating work?
Botox works within a few days but can take as long as 14-21 days for the full effects to show through. Botox for sweating (hyperhidrosis) injections are not permanent, so we recommend repeat treatments at 3-6 monthly intervals to maintain the effects.
Thousands of these treatments are performed every year, with astonishing results – noticeable from 2-14 days afterwards and lasting several months.
Over time, you may notice that the botox works more effectively and lasts longer with each subsequent treatment.
Are there side effects of Botox for Hyperhidrosis?
The pain associated with injections is mild and no local anaesthetic is required. The needles used are very fine and approximately the same diameter as coarse human hair.
You will be able to drive and engage in all of your usual daily activities immediately after your injections. You may develop slight bruising at the injection sites, but otherwise there will be no visible signs of your skincare treatment.
When injecting the armpit area there are no nearby muscles, so there is no chance of having any migration or any muscle weakness.
Botox injections for sweating have been successfully used in many cases now and we have had good results in our clinic – with mean dry time of 12 weeks.
