Hyperhidrosis (Excessive sweating)
Approximately 2-3% of the population living in western countries suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Some people also suffer from excessive sweating from other areas like nose, forehead and cheeks.
At Bedford Skin Clinic we treat excessive sweating of underarms, forehead, hands, feet and other body areas by injection of Botulinum toxin (BOTOX®). This treatment is painless, safe and very effective. Side effects are uncommon and include numbness in the areas injected, excessive sweating from other areas and bruising.
The effects are observed in a few days after the treatment. If you suffer from excessive sweating book an appointment with us. The doctor will assess your suitability for the treatment. The treatment takes approximately half an hour to perform. The effect lasts between 4 to 8 months in most of the cases.
