Botox treatments at Skin Perfection
At Skin Perfection, we offer a very effective treatment for hyperhidrosis in the form of Botox injections. And you can be sure of receiving the best Botox treatment available because the preparation we use – manufactured by Allergan – is one of the best products on the market.
And since it is a prescription-only medicine, Botox injections at Skin Perfection are administered by our specially-qualified and registered doctor, who has an in-depth knowledge of injectable treatments.
How does Botox work?
A series of small injections of the Botox botulinum toxin are made into the skin of the area affected by hyperhidrosis. The Botox effectively immobilise the sweat glands, blocking the nerve impulses that lead to perspiration.
For most patients, the effect lasts up to about 6 months.
What happens during the treatment?
Having cleaned the area ready for treatment, your Skin Perfection doctor will highlight the sweat pores using a blend of iodine and starch which will ‘stain’ the sweat area. This shows where greater concentration of Botox injections are needed.
The treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete, and patients usually notice the sweating has decreased by up to 95% within a few days of the treatment, with the full effect working within 14 days.
Is Botox treatment safe?
Botox injection treatment for hyperhidrosis is quick, safe and painless. It has been used in the NHS for over 30 years, for a variety of conditions, and has an excellent safety record.
Please refer to our information on botulinum toxin treatment for lines and wrinkles for further detail on the use and background of this prescription-only medicine.
Is the treatment painful?
You may notice a little discomfort from having an injection, but we normally use an EMLA local anaesthetic cream to numb the area prior to administering the treatment.
