Excessive Sweating Treatments | Light Touch Clinic

Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Sweating is necessary to control your body temperature and on average, we lose over a litre of sweat a day. Hyperhidrosis is the excessive production of sweat and this affects around 1% of the population. Wrinkle relaxing injections can be an effective treatment for Hyperhidrosis and work by disabling the apocrine glands to stop them producing and secreting sweat from the body. This simple treatment can have life-changing results for those who suffer from excessive sweating.

Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) is effective for treating:

  • Underarms
  • Forehead

How does it work?

Botox is superficially injected into the underarms, inhibiting the signals to the sweat glands and reducing sweat production for around 5-12 months for most patients, before the treatment is repeated.


Does it hurt?

Most patients tolerate the treatment well and we use super-fine needles to minimise any discomfort.


What will my skin look like afterwards?

The skin may be a little bit red following the treatment, but should settle within 20 minutes.


How long before I see results?

Results should be apparent within 7 days following treatment. We ask our patients to attend a follow-up appointment 2 weeks post procedure to ensure we have achieved the best possible results.


What are the risks or complications?

Headache after first treatment, flu-like symptoms and reported cases of a ‘heavy like’ feeling in the shoulders one or two days after treatment
