About Our Excessive Sweating Treatments
Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. However, in people with hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.
We can treat excessive sweating by injecting Botox injections directly into the area. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat. However, Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it’s injected.

Dermal Filler results are visible straight away, however, you may experience some swelling and bruising for approximately 5 – 7 days after your treatment. This is completely normal after treatment and applying ice or a bruising cream to the area can assist in the reduction of this.
Lumps and bumps are also common after being treated whilst the filler is settling into the tissue which is why it’s important to ensure you attend a follow-up appointment. This follow up appointment allows for our Medical Professional to review your treatment and ensure the filler is integrating nicely into your tissue.
It is such a big unknown as to why product lasts longer in some than others, however, we try and give an approximate guideline with regards to our standard and thick fillers.
Each individual is different and there are many factors that can influence how quickly someone’s body dissolves the filler e.g. lifestyle, if you exercise a lot or have a high metabolic rate.
Patients must be 18 years or older in order to be treated for cosmetic injectables.
