Overactive sweat glands especially underarms, hands, feet or even on the forehead, nose and upper lips can be a cause of much embarrassment and affect self-confidence. Sweating which is troublesome, can be controlled without the use of topical anti-perspirants, using the most up to date dermal solution – Botox. This clinic treatment provides long term control of sweating at any site, so you can avoid or significantly reduce the use of deodorants / anti-perspirants. Reducing the amount of sweating can profoundly improve your quality of life with a simple, safe, effective and long lasting treatment.
What is Botox Treatment to reduce Sweating?
Attempts to control sweating have traditionally been by use of topical drying agents – anti-perspirants / deodorants or surgery to remove the sweat glands such by sub-dermal excision, Liposuction or nerve division. These treatments have limited use and require daily application or painful injections or surgery. The Jet technology uses the innovative supersonic jet of saline to deliver Botulinum toxin into the skin and sweat glands without needles.
How does the treatment with Botulinum Toxin reduce sweating?
The delivery of Botulinum toxin to the sweat glands blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to sweat glands which can be used to control sweating. Botulinum toxin is therefore effective in the treatment of sweating or Hyperhidrosis of the underarms (axilla), face, hands and feet. Because the receptors that are blocked by Botulinum toxin are continually begin replaced, the effect of Botulinum toxin is never permanent but typically lasts 6 – 12 months in sweat glands.
Am I suitable for Botulinum Toxin Treatment?
If you are troubled by sweating which may or may not be controlled by topical antiperspirants and would like a long term treatment, then Botox treatment may be suitable for you. Sweating or Hyperhidrosis can take a terrible social toll on the individual, making them feel embarrassed and self-conscious because of wet patches on their clothing and the odour which develops from sweat. Botox Treatment can control sweating and have a profoundly beneficial effect on your quality of life. Botulinum toxin treatment should not be used during pregnancy or breast feeding.

Will the treatment be painful or cause bruising?
