Underarm Sweating


In some people, the body’s mechanism for cooling itself down is over active- so over active that they may sweat four or five times more than is necessary, or normal. When sweating is this extreme it can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, anxiety inducing and life inhibiting. It can disrupt all aspects of a person’s life, from career choices and recreational activities to relationships, emotional wellbeing and self-image. This kind of excessive sweating is a medical condition called hyperhidrosis.

‘Hyperhidrosis affects approximately 3% of the population, but due to lack of awareness, more than half of sufferers are never diagnosed or treated for their symptoms.’

What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

Excessive sweating can be a symptom of certain medical conditions or a side effect of some medications. You should not have treatment for your hyperhidrosis without first consulting your GP to exclude any underlying medical condition which requires treatment.


The cause of primary hyperhidrosis is not known.

How does it work?

Botox works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. In people with hyperhidrosis, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.

The area is marked with a surgical pen, then cleaned prior to injection.

Injections are spaced approximately 2cm apart to treat the area. The needles are tiny, the injections are not deep and most patients report tolerable discomfort rather than pain.


Please shave underarms and avoid using over the counter antiperspirants or deodorants 24 hours before.

It is advisable to avoid aspirin and non-steroidal medication, vitamin E, gingko biloba and St. John’s Wort for at least 24 hours prior to treatment as these may increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.

If you have been prescribed aspirin for a medical reason, it is best to continue this. If you have a bleeding disorder, or are taking Warfarin, discuss this with the doctor prior to receiving botulinum treatment.

Wear a dark, loose top, preferably an old one to the appointment. You may bleed a little and iodine may stain clothing.

How long does it last?

Treatment with botox will last around 3-9 months(patient dependant) and the results gradually wear off. A repeat treatment is often required around this time. Results vary with patients.

Mild bruising.

The treatment area may feel sore and or tender for the first 24 hours. Some patients describe an achiness, tiredness or heaviness of the arms which usually resolves within a few days from occurring.

Results are gradual and may be judged at 2-3 weeks. You are invited for a review appointment to record the effectiveness of treatment and modify your treatment plan if necessary. Sometimes an additional treatment is required to achieve optimal results.

Keep the area clean. You may apply antiperspirants as soon as the skin has recovered from the injections- usually within 4-12 hours.

Avoid vigorous exercise or extreme heat for 48 hours after treatment.

Should you experience any unpleasant side effects that you are not expecting, or suffer symptoms that concern you, please do not hesitate to contact the clinic and an appointment will be made for you to be seen.

The treatment may not completely stop any sweating, but we expect the sweating to be significantly reduced. Treatment results are expected to last approximately 6 months. For some individuals this may be shorter, or even longer.

Once the Botulinum Toxin wears off, your condition will return to its previous state, there is no permanent effect on your condition, either for the better, or for the worse.

If you have any further questions, before, during or after the treatment, do not hesitate to ask your practitioner.

Your age is catching up to you and you see it every time you look at your reflection in the mirror. You feel like you are twenty years old on the inside, but the outside is telling you another story. As you age, your skin loses it’s elasticity and healthy glow. You can begin to see hollows, skin that sags, and wrinkles. You want to do something about the effects of ageing, and by combining dermal fillers with botulinum toxin could give you the results you have been looking for and also give you more youthful skin that is sure to make you smile.

How Can Dermal Fillers Help You?

Dermal fillers are injected into areas of concern to add volume, and also help to smooth the lines in your face. They can be used on the lips and around the mouth to provide fullness and address lines that form, giving the mouth a pinched appearance. Use both in combination for results that last longer and look natural.
