Discover How You Can Fight Excessive Underarm Sweat In Under 30 Minutes

We all like to feel confident in our own skin but sometimes our bodies can catch us out, and often at the most inopportune moments. Many of us struggle to manage the day-to-day inconvenience of excessive sweating and it can cause a person deep embarrassment, especially if they suffer from excessive sweating around the armpit area.

Managing excessive sweating in our increasingly busy, modern lives, is very difficult. We should all be able to exercise with confidence or wear a special top on a night out without feeling anxious about ending the evening with a top covered in embarrassing sweat marks.

If you find yourself reaching for the deodorant far too regularly, the great news is that there is a treatment available which targets excessive sweating, or ‘hyperhidrosis’ as it is also known.

So, what’s involved in this treatment? We’ve put together this short guide to highlight what the process entails, how it works and how much it costs.

What is involved in treating excessive sweating in the underarm area?

Surprisingly, it’s Botox®. You may well have heard about Botox® injections being used to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines on a person’s face but did you know that Botox® is also extremely effective in targeting excessive sweating?

Many patients are now discovering that Botox® is a great way of reducing activity in their sweat glands, meaning that embarrassing sweat marks on a top can now be a thing of the past.

How much does Botox® for hyperhidrosis cost?

If you suffer from excessive sweating in the armpits, treatment in the UK is readily available but costs vary from clinic to clinic. Here at Look Lovely London, we charge just £450 to treat both armpits. The procedure itself takes just 25 minutes and we’re sure that you’ll be delighted with the results.

Are there any side effects to the treatment?

When it comes to Botox® for excessive sweating treatment, side effects are usually pretty minimal. Most patients don’t experience any side effects at all other than minor bruising which can sometimes appear where the needles have been administered. But since these are on your armpits they will not be visible to anyone, meaning that you can undergo Botox® in your lunch break without anyone knowing!

What happens on the day of your treatment?

One of our experienced and highly qualified team members will talk you through the procedure in full and this will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have. Some patients who have not undergone Botox® injections before can feel slightly anxious about the procedure and our team members are all experienced in reassuring nervous patients. The procedure will not take place until you are fully confident and ready.

The underarm area will be fully cleansed and then the Botox® injections will be placed no more than 3mm into the skin. Some patients feel a small sting when the needle is inserted and others don’t feel anything at all.

You may also notice small bumps where the needle enters the skin but these usually disappear within about ten minutes.

How long do the results last for?

Generally speaking, results from Botox® injections to the underarms can last up to nine months. This is why the procedure appeals so much to patients suffering with hyperhidrosis since they are able to carry on with their normal lives and enjoy the effects of the treatment for a long time. If they then want to return for further treatment then they can opt to do so.

Once you have tried Botox® to treat hyperhidrosis, we’re pretty confident that you’ll be delighted with the results. Many patients contact us to share their hyperhidrosis ‘before and after’ stories with us, and they always say that they only wish they’d known about Botox® sooner!

Don’t Sweat It – How You Can Make Excess Underarm Sweating A Thing Of The Past

Find out now how you can fix excessive underarm sweating with Botox and have lasting results in under a week.

Many people hear the word Botox® and they think of reduced fine lines and wrinkles and a smoother, more youthful complexion. While it’s true that this wonder treatment can shave years off your appearance, it has another extremely popular use: it can help to change the lives of people who suffer from excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis).

Excessive sweating, especially under the arms, can cause huge discomfort and embarrassment. But Look Lovely London is here to make hyperhidrosis a thing of your past. Although nobody can cure excessive sweating for good, the right treatments at the right time can help you live your life to the fullest – no sweat!

Botox® injections for sweating armpits

First of all, if you’re considering Botox® for excessive sweating anywhere, it’s critical that you choose a trained clinician to perform the procedure. Your doctor needs to have had special training in order to make the right injections with the right quantities in the right places.

Excessive sweating can occur all over the body, but the most common sites for hyperhidrosis are under the arms, under the breasts, on the forehead, and on the hands and feet. Sweating at any of these sites causes daily problems and embarrassment, but a quick Botox® procedure can completely turn things around. In fact, using Botox® to treat excessive sweating has been proven to reduce sweating by around 85% under the arms, with similarly impressive results elsewhere.

How does it work?

There’s a particular chemical in the body which is responsible for switching the sweating reflex on. Botox® works by temporarily blocking this chemical and therefore stopping or interrupting its secretion and improving or even temporarily curing hyperhidrosis at the site.

The Botox® is inserted at a very shallow level and lies just beneath the surface of the skin.

How is it done?

First, you will have an in-depth consultation with your doctor to identify the problem area(s) and talk through any questions or concerns you might have. During your treatment, a fine needle is used to skillfully inject the Botox® in specific locations, usually in a grid-like pattern.

If you’re worried about feeling the needle going in, your doctor can give you a mini ice pack to numb the areas that are going to be treated. At Look Lovely London, we also give clients ice packs to take home if they’re experiencing any discomfort after Botox® injections.

When will I notice results?

You will start to notice a difference within two to four days, but you might find that your symptoms continue to improve over the following days. The full effects of your Botox® treatment will be evident after two weeks.

How do I prepare for treatment?

With most hyperhidrosis Botox® treatments, all you need to do is show up on the day of your appointment. However, you’re having Botox® injections for sweating armpits, most clinicians recommend that you don’t shave your armpits for at least three to four days before your treatment is booked in.

How long will it last?

For most people, the effects of this treatment should last anywhere between four and 12 months. Some people find that the effects can last as long as 14 months. Plenty of studies have been performed to ensure that repeat treatment of Botox® for sweating is totally safe, so you can enjoy consistent results for as long as you want. In fact, a very high percentage of our clients here at Look Lovely London return for repeat treatment.
