Hyperhidrosis(excessive sweating) can be treated with Botox injections to the afflicted area. A single 15-minute treatment session in the underarm area will reduce sweating 90-100% for 5-10 months.
At Medicetics in London and Cirencester, our doctors are highly skilled and experienced in treating excessive sweating with Botox injections. The active ingredient in Botox helps dull the overactive signals that the brain is sending to the sweat glands; as a result, sweating ceases.
It only takes one Botox injection in the afflicted area to see results. Clients will need to undergo regular Botox injections every three to six months to maintain results. Clients who undergo hyperhidrosis treatments at Medicetics report feeling more confident and secure since they no longer have to worry about excessive sweating.

1. It’s not just the underarms.
Hyperhidrosis can afflict multiple parts of the body, including palms of the hand and even the bottoms of feet. Regardless of where hyperhidrosis strikes, Botox injections will still be effective.
2. Hyperhidrosis is more than cosmetic.
Excessive sweating may just seem like a cosmetic issue, where you can’t wear certain articles of clothing. However, hyperhidrosis can impact a person’s quality of life by making it difficult to hold a pen, use a steering wheel, or even grip hands.
3.There’s no known cause for hyperhidrosis. It’s thought that excessive sweating comes down to genetics; other researchers claim that heat and emotions can trigger hyperhidrosis.
4.Over-the-counter products rarely help.
Because hyperhidrosis is caused by overactive sweat glands, this means that antiperspirants and other products don’t treat the actual cause of excessive sweating. This is why Botox is an excellent solution for hyperhidrosis.
5. Hyperhidrosis is not due to a nervous disposition.
Although the thought of excess sweating in a social situation can cause anxiety, anxiety is NOT the root cause of hyperhidrosis. Hence treatments like beta blockers are not an appropriate treatment.
You may be a good candidate for hyperhidrosis treatments if:
• You sweat more than necessary
• You break out into sweats even when you’re in a cool environment • You experience excessive sweating in your underarms, on your feet, and on your head
• You feel embarrassed by your excessive sweating

"I had suffered from hyperhidrosis my whole adult life (I'm now 37) and had found ways to deal with it...predominantly wearing black; always carrying an extra top with me. It had simply become a way of life. After chancing upon an article about Botox I carefully researched practitioners and am absolutely ecstatic with the results. I've had a 100% improvement. Dr. Amy Hermon Taylor immediately put me at ease and talked me through the procedure in-depth. It has quite simply been a game-changer. I'm now looking forward to the hot months and being able to wear what I want. My only regret is not having done it years ago. I can't recommend Medicetics highly enough and couldn't have felt in safer hands.""
