At Carlton Cosmetic Clinic we can discuss all your treatment options and help you make the choice that's right for you. Treatment with Botox injections is a popular, as it is easy, quick, affordable, minimally uncomfortable, and minimally invasive, as well as highly effective.
The majority of patients with hyperhydrosis will respond to injections. Improvement is long lasting, varying from 3 to 12 months, with a mean of 6 months. When carried out for hands or feet, numbing cream or anaesthetic nerve blocks may be needed prior to treatment to improve comfort. Underarm injections are often done with ice alone, or sometimes a topical numbing agent.
If you have private health insurance, the cost of Botox medication for excessive sweating may be covered (the fee for the injection procedure itself, however, is most usually not covered).
