We all sweat, it’s nature’s way of helping us cool down, but excessive sweating – or hyperhidrosis – is a surprisingly common condition that can occur at any moment and really impact quality of life. It’s a condition that isn’t just confined to the summer months as sufferers can be affected all year round.
Overactive sweat glands produce too much moisture which drenches the skin, soaking into clothing and leaving sufferers physically uncomfortable and often socially embarrassed. Despite excellent personal hygiene, odour can build up which for many people affects their confidence at work and around friends.
For excessive underarm sweating, the problem can be solved very effectively with Body Sweat Solutions, a pain-free procedure which can be performed quickly and safely by experts in hyperhidrosis at Cliftonville Dental in Northampton. Botulinum Toxin A, which has been used by doctors for 20 years to treat facial tics and muscle spasms, is administered by a tiny injection and stops your nerves from sending messages to activate the sweat glands. No messages, no sweat!
Botox is a prescription only medicine and may only be used where it is deemed appropriate by a qualified health professional following a consultation. Please contact us for a complimentary consultation to see if it is suitable for you. The treatment costs £525 and clinical improvement generally occurs within the first week after injection and persists for four to seven months.
