Excessive Armpit Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Are you suffering from excessive armpit sweating? Not to worry, we can help treat excessive sweating with Botox Armpit Injections in Harrow and Wembley.
Hyperhidrosis is defined as abnormally excessive sweating that is not necessarily related to heat or exercise. This condition can disrupt everyday activities as well as cause the person experiencing it to become extremely self conscious and may cause social anxiety to develop. But not to worry, we at Murrays Chemist can help patients manage excessive armpit sweating in Harrow and Wembley.
Botox armpit injections for excessive sweating
Botox (Botulinum toxin) injections for hyperhidrosis are a new treatment that helps to control the symptoms of excessive armpit sweating when other treatment options have not been successful. In a person with Hyperhidrosis, Botox can be injected into the skin under the arms and works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands to produce sweat, essentially paralysing the glands.
During treatment you’ll receive several injections that will be inserted in a grid-like pattern around your armpit. These injections are mildly painful, however if you are worried about the pain a numbing agent/cream will be available. These appointments are not time consuming and you will be able to return to everyday life as soon as they are done.
What to expect after treatment
As stated above, you can return to everyday life as soon as your injections have been done. It can take anywhere between two to seven days for excessive sweating to stop and up to two weeks for total dryness.
Botox is a temporary treatment and therefore you will need to get more injections in the future to further prevent excessive sweating. Depending on the individual, this treatment can last anywhere between 4 and 12 months and we always recommend having a follow up appointment to make sure that none of the areas have been missed.
Why you should get Botox for excessive sweating
