Excessive sweating

Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) can be embarrassing and inconvenient. Superficial injections of Botulinum, commonly known as Botox®, into the skin of the underarms is an effective treatment that gives an almost immediate solution to this problem. Each treatment can last for 3 to 6 months, and if treatments are given regularly, the results can be maintained for much longer periods.

This is a very safe procedure that is undertaken by Dr Partridge. There is minimal discomfort as the needles are so fine and such small quantities are used. There may be some itching immediately after treatment. Treatment times are approximately 15 to 20 minutes, and you can go straight back to work or your normal routine afterwards.

It is essential that your underarms are shaved and you must not use any deodorants or antiperspirants for 24hrs prior to the procedure.

If you are interested in having this procedure please contact the secretary of either Dr Partridge at the Rohais Surgery who will be able to provide you with further details.
