Botulinum Toxin for hyperhidrosis

Botulinum Toxin for hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating can be an incredibly distressing and highly disruptive condition.

Now thanks to highly effective treatments, we can safely and non-invasively reduce the impact of hyperhidrosis and its unpleasant symptoms.


At Elizabeth Tetlow aesthetics we offer bespoke hyperhidrosis treatments at our Cheshire clinic, using innovative techniques designed to prevent excessive sweating with long-lasting results.


What is hyperhidrosis?


Hyperhidrosis is a common condition which causes excess perspiration. It doesn’t pose a serious risk to health, but it is understandably upsetting and can have a significant impact on quality of life. Over time, hyperhidrosis can also lead to the development of depression and anxiety as a result of the stress caused by managing symptoms daily.


Most people suffer with primary hyperhidrosis, which is thought to be linked to problems with the parts of the nervous system that control sweating. There are also some known causes of hyperhidrosis including hormonal changes during pregnancy and menopause (hot flushes), low blood sugar, anxiety, hyperhidrosis and side effects of certain medications.


How can I stop hyperhidrosis?


Without proper medical treatment it isn’t possible to stop hyperhidrosis – instead, most people who suffer with excessive sweating tend to simply manage the symptoms day to day through not wearing certain types of clothing, using strong anti-perspirant or avoiding triggers. But this can prove incredibly stressful and challenging, especially if hyperhidrosis is severe or unpredictable. Thankfully, innovative new treatments are offering long-lasting relief for those affected by hyperhidrosis.


Botulinum toxin treatment for hyperhidrosis


Botulinum toxin treatment is incredibly effective for treating primary hyperhidrosis and has a very high success rate. In studies, botulinum toxin treatment has been shown to reduce excessive sweating decreases by more than 85%.


This pioneering treatment works through targeted injections which reduce the ability of the nerves to send signals to the sweat glands, preventing excessive sweating as a result. Most commonly botulinum toxin treatment is used in the underarm area and for palmar hyperhidrosis (the hands), but it can be used in many different areas of the body.


What are the benefits of hyperhidrosis treatment?


There are many different physical and emotional benefits and advantages of hyperhidrosis treatment, including:


  • Safe and non-invasive treatment
  • No changing of clothes required throughout the day or excessive deodorant use
  • Fast-acting – takes effect within just 2-4 weeks
  • Long-lasting results
  • Quick procedure with no down-time post-treatment
  • Increased self-confidence and peace of mind


How much does hyperhidrosis treatment cost?


Costs vary from person to person depending on how many areas you would like to be treated. Prices start from £300 – please get in touch for pricing and availability.

Hyperhidrosis treatment FAQs


We’ve listed some of our most commonly-asked questions below. If you don’t see the answer to your question here, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

How long will the treatment take?

Treatments typically take 30 minutes, but we recommend allocating an hour to ensure you have time before treatment for discussion and post-treatment to address any concerns or aftercare queries you might have.

Is there any recovery time needed?

There is no recovery time needed after botulinum toxin treatment for excessive sweating – so you can resume your usual daily activities straight away. We’ll share aftercare advice with you following your treatment – side effects are minimal and can include discomfort, swelling and bruising at the injection site.

Is the treatment painful?

You shouldn’t feel any pain during treatment, but there may be some discomfort during the injection especially if treatment is administered around more sensitive areas. If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us for a consultation, where we can answer any questions you may have regarding the treatment.

How long will the results last?

Results vary from person to person, as the time it takes to absorb and metabolise botulinum toxin is dependent on a variety of factors. Typically you can expect the results to last between 6 and 12 months.
