Summer is only around the corner, many of us will be hoping for a repeat of the blue skies and sunshine that we experienced last year. For most of us the thought of some sunshine and heat is very much welcomed, but if you are one of the 3% of the population that suffers from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) it may be more of an annoyance or source of anxiety for you.
We understand your concerns
Excessive sweating causes serious problems for many people. They avoid social and professional opportunities because of embarrassment and many also report difficulties in their romantic lives because of excessive sweating. Simple things like dressing in the morning require more planning and thought…wear loose-fitting clothes to minimise signs of sweating, do not wear tight clothes or man-made fabrics – (for example, nylon) and daily choices that we otherwise take for granted require careful consideration, avoid things that might make your sweating worse – for example, drinking alcohol or eating spicy food.
Stop the excessive sweating
Here at Face and Body we have a solution that can banish all these problems and let you enjoy the summer weather rather than dread it. Wouldn’t it be great to wear what you want, eat what you want, drink what you want and not worry about sweating?
Myself, Nurse Claire or Dr Victoria can inject Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox®) to temporarily block the chemical signals from your nerves that stimulate your underarm sweat glands and so stop the sweating. Results typically last 4-6 months after which you can repeat the treatment or wait until the same time next year.
Let's get started
And the process couldn’t be simpler. Book a 30-minute consultation with myself or one of our other medical practitioners to have a review your medical history and ensure that the treatment is right for you.
If it is, schedule a 30-minute treatment. Once treated come back after 2 weeks for a review where we can mop up any sweat glands that escaped the initial treatment.
Your consultation costs £25, your treatment costs £399 and the review is free.
Don’t Just take our word for it…
Angus had been bothered by excessive sweating for years and didn’t realise there were options available to him. After chatting with a friend who attends Face and Body, he booked in for a consultation and was delighted to find out that he was suitable for the treatment. Watch Angus' story…
