If you suffer from excessive armpit sweating, you are not alone. Even celebrities such as David Hasselhof and Meg Ryan suffer with this problem.
Many people suffer from a condition called Hyperhidrosis to a variable degree. This can lead to excessive sweating especially in the armpits. Many have tried the best anti-perspirants that you can buy in the shops, some have been to their GPs and have tried something stronger on prescription. However these may still be ineffective, and can irritate the skin and make it sore. In these circumstances, Botox® or Botulinum Toxin treatment can be a fantastic treatment option and may be the answer to the problem!
It is believed that over 100,000 people in the UK suffer from hyperhidrosis and many will have been suffering silently with this embarrassing problem for some time. Excessive sweating can have a hugely negative effective on the sufferer’s every day life. It can be socially embarrassing, it makes you have to plan your social activities with more thought, and it can affect your confidence.
Botox® is a simple, yet very effective way to treat this condition for excessive armpit sweating. In the first instance, you would have an assessment consultation with the Dermatologist. He will assess you to exclude other causes of hyerhidrosis. If Botox® is a suitable treatment, a starch Iodine test will be carried out to localise accurately the area of the sweat glands. This will ensure the treatment covers all the problem area. Botox® is then injected using a very tiny needle into the identified area. The treatment can take a week or 2 to take effect but the result can last 6 months or more.
The first treatment including medical assessment and starch iodine test is £600 with the Dermatologist. Subsequent treatments, which may only be once a year is £500, making this one of the most cost effective and popular treatments in the clinic.
