More commonly called excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis occurs when the nerves that trigger your sweat glands become overactive, making you sweat even when it’s not necessary. The bacterial growth within sweat in areas like the underarms, palms, hands and feet can cause unwanted odours or discomfort. Others can also mistake this for poor hygiene, which can cause lack of confidence or emotional stress in your social and working lives.

There’s often no medical cause for hyperhidrosis, though it can be hereditary. The excess sweating is often made worse by nervousness or anxiety.

Hyperhidrosis treatment is an injectable sweat prevention procedure that blocks the nerves that trigger your sweat glands. This lowers or stops sweat production, and lets you return to a normal daily routine.

How it works

Your doctor begins by gently cleansing the treatment areas with sterilising wipes. In each area, they administer 15-20 injections of Botox – a safe and FDA-approved biodegradable protein. Each injection takes only a few seconds.

To finish, your doctor will cleanse the treatment areas once again to remove any contaminants left near the injection site.

Recovery and & possible side effects

After your hyperhidrosis treatment, you can carry on with your normal activities right away. Some patients experience compensatory sweating in other areas near the treatment areas, but this should stop within four months.

To avoid irritation, we recommend that you don’t use deodorants or perfumed products for 24 hours after your hyperhidrosis treatment.

Treatment Time

Please allow 15-30 minutes for your hyperhidrosis treatment


Hyperhidrosis treatment reduces – and in most cases stops – sweating in the areas around your injections. That means you can stop worrying about unpleasant odours or stains caused by sweat. This gives you renewed confidence that can help you improve your social life.

The benefits of sweat prevention treatment last for up to six months, although this can be extended with top-up treatments.


Hyperhidrosis treatments start from £400.
