EXCESSIVE FACE AND NECK SWEATING

Excessive face and neck sweating (also referred to as hyperhidrosis), can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem. The condition can last a lifetime if left untreated and can often affect our lifestyle choices – for example, preventing a sufferer from participating in activities that might exacerbate sweating.
Botulinum toxin is more commonly associated with the treatment of lines and wrinkles of the face. However advanced techniques can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis.

EXCESSIVE FACE AND NECK SWEATING

Excessive face and neck sweating (also referred to as hyperhidrosis), can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem.

Botulinum toxin is more commonly associated with the treatment of lines and wrinkles of the face. However advanced techniques can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis.

SEE GREAT RESULTS

To treat excessive face and neck sweating, botulinum toxin works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands. The treatment is not a cure for hyperhidrosis – it only provides temporary relief and needs to be repeated every three to six months for maximum effect. The protein injected into the skin blocks the nerves that supply the eccrine glands; thus preventing the glands from producing sweat.

Overall the procedure is relatively quick and painless.

Please note we cannot treat pregnant or breastfeeding patients with botulinum toxin.

Patients will start seeing and feeling the results at 1-2 weeks after having the treatment.

Patients are recommended to have the treatment every 6 months to receive the best possible results. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created bespoke for you by our team of experts.

The treatment involves a small number of carefully placed injections. The feeling is not painful, however some patients do feel  ‘mild discomfort’ as the needle works it’s way through the skin.

We use very fine needles; most people tolerate the treatment well and do not require any topical anesthetic (numbing cream).
