Botulinum Toxin for Excess Sweating
Published on: May 8, 2016
This summer is set to be one of the hottest on record but, whilst most of us enjoy getting extra sunshine and a bit of a tan, for those who experience excess sweating hot weather can be inconvenient and embarrassing. At The London Cosmetic Clinic our Botulinum Toxin practitioner can help stop sweating from the forehead, palms, feet and armpits, giving people the freedom to shake hands, exercise and wear whatever they want without worrying about smells and dampness.
Botulinum toxin injections work by blocking chemical signals to the nerves in the muscles. In the case of sweating, this stops sending the message telling the body to produce sweat. The procedure only takes 20 to 25 minutes and we advise you not to touch or rub the skin straight afterwards and to avoid exercise for 24 hours. You will start to notice the effects of the treatment after 1-2 weeks and you should stay sweat-free for about 6 months, after which time you will gradually start sweating again unless you have a top-up treatment.
Controlling your sweating means that you don’t need to carry around spare tops or spend a fortune on antiperspirants only to have to keep reapplying them and can make you feel more confident.
