Excessive, uncontrollable underarm sweating (also called axillary hyperhidrosis) can affect your daily routine, your career options, and even your love life.
During treatment, up to 20 small doses of BOTOX are injected in a grid pattern in the armpit.
This comfortable treatment takes just minutes to complete, and the success rate is outstanding.
The treatment does a wonderful job of controlling excessive sweating.
Results are usually seen in 2 to 4 days and last for 4 - 7 months at which time the procedure must be repeated.
Avoid lying down or massaging the treated area for 4 hours after treatment.
Do not exercise for 24 hours.
If you get a headache (as some people do for few hours after the treatment) you may take Paracetamol, unless otherwise advised by your physician.

You are not alone. Millions suffer from excessive sweating and there may be even more, as many people do not report this condition to their doctors because they think there is no treatment that will solve this disruptive and often embarrassing problem.
Hyperhidrosis happens when you sweat in excess of what your body needs to regulate its temperature. It can be unpredictable, and may come on regardless of your mood or the weather. It seems to run in families, and for most people begins during puberty. Most excessive sweating happens in the underarm area.
The severity of hyperhidrosis is measured on a scale from one to four, based upon how much the patient feels the condition interferes with daily life. Here’s how the levels are defined:
One third of people with hyperhidrosis define their severity as a level four, saying the condition is intolerable. Both levels three and four are considered to be “severe” cases of hyperhidrosis. If this describes you, our physicians are eager to help.
Because every patient is unique, Harley Street Surgery will work closely with you to design the most effective treatment plan possible.
Most patients have tried prescription antiperspirants and oral medications by the time they come to us, yet their symptoms persist. Our treatments get to the heart of your problem by actually targeting the overactive glands and bringing them under control.
