Botox for Excessive Sweating

Do you suffer from excessive sweating under your armpits? It is a condition and it has a name, Hyperhidrosis, but more importantly… we have a solution!

Simple invisible needles you can barely feel, that can reduce sweat production by upwards of 80%. This treatment is effective for 3-6 months.

The treatment is Botox. Yes the same Botox that is used to smooth those wrinkles. Instead of blocking the messages to the muscles telling them to move it blocks the signals to the sweat glands that tell them to sweat. In people with Hyperhidrosis the glands are overactive so they tend to sweat excessively, which is why we block that signal.

You might find you don’t sweat excessively but you are aware of sweating at times, and you’d like to consider doing something about it for a special event such as a wedding. Using Botox for sweating for purely cosmetic reasons is an option so get in touch.

You’ll see results in 2-4 days and the full effects – significant reduction in sweat – within 2 weeks. Come and talk to us about what Botox can do for you.

Excessive sweating can be frustrating and embarrassing, but it is a problem we can help you solve. Botox injections with our expert injectors can give you upwards of 80% sweat reduction.

During my initial review Tara knew exactly what would be beneficial to maintain my acne. I have used previous prescribed cleansers and wanted to continue with this so was recommended the products that would work for my skin. I look forward to my next appointment. I look forward to seeing the benefits of using these products thanks to EK Clinic.

Emma Roberts

Having met with Emma now on several occasions for various treatments, I would not go anywhere else. More recently I have had the Cyropen treatment which after downtime, has now given me more confidence and look after my skin better now. The thread vein removal was amazing . What a difference during those summer months! Currently having Profhilo my face looks fresher. Highly recommend Emma’s professionalism.

Whatever your concerns, our Aesthetic Medical Team will be able to give you advice on all things skin related especially ageing positively.


What is Hyperhidrosis and why do I sweat excessively?

Your body automatically cools itself when your temperature rises. So your nervous system activates your sweat glands. With people with hyperhidrosis the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive. Hence more sweat.

How does the botox work?

Botulinum Toxin also known as Botox is injected around the area of concern, just below the skin, by our expert injectors. We do 15-20 injections with super fine needles, in a grid pattern.

Botox temporarily inhibits the release of acetylcholine, preventing the overstimulation of your sweat glands. Botox intercepts the message telling the glands to secrete sweat, so they don’t. Therefore, Botox minimises sweating in the area where it has been injected. 

Is this the same Botox you use to stop lines and wrinkles?

Yes! When it comes to smoothing lines and wrinkles the Botox is used to temporarily block the nerve signal to stop the muscle contraction. In this case the Botox acts on the glands instead of the muscles. This treatment stops the signals to the glands that tell them to produce sweat. So they don’t. Problem solved.

How many treatments are required?

This treatment is temporary, so more treatments are required. But most patients see a reduction in sweat for 3-6 months.

What are the results?

Sweat production is significantly reduced - upwards of 80%. This treatment normally gives a noticeable difference within 2-4 days, but you’ll experience the full effects within 2 weeks. The treatment is effective for 3-6 months.
