Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a medical condition and can affect your entire body or just certain areas such as armpits, hands or feet. It is caused by over active sweat glands and can flare up whether it is cool or whilst you’re at rest. Sufferers find that normal antiperspirants are not effective.

Excess Sweating can be an embarrassing problem which can negatively affect your confidence. We offer treatment for this in a safe and effective way in our clinic, to let you live your life without the worry or discomfort excessive sweating can cause.

The NHS has approved the use of Botox® for the treatment of excess sweating. At Cosmedica our medical team are authorised and trained in this specialist treatment.

How does it reduce excessive sweating?

Normally, the body’s own regulatory system senses heat and produces sweat as a way of cooling down. In some people, the nerves that communicate with the sweat glands are overactive. Botox® works by blocking the nerves activating the sweat glands and reduces the amount of sweating.

The procedure is done by Dr kieron who experienced and trained.   Multiple injections of Botox® are applied to the affected area.  The procedure is quick and simple, with no down time.

Don’t let this condition continue to hinder your life.
