Underarm excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is a common problem for men and women.
Guaranteed Cure for Excess Sweating
If you are considering having the treatment don’t be put off by the fact that these are injections. We use special numbing cream and tiny acupuncture sized needles that mean you hardly feel anything. The whole treatment takes less than 10 minutes and will give you back the confidence to wear whatever you want and not to worry about the next damp patch.
BOTOX® sweating treatment costs from only £500. Treatment is available at all of our clinics in London and Bristol and Cosmedics only use expert doctors for BOTOX® treatments.
Doctor Consultation / Assessment
Patients come to our clinics for the same reason that the underarm sweating is simply not controllable with deodorants. We take a thorough history to determine if there are any possible underlying medical reasons (which is rare) and discuss treatment options
Most patients simple want a cure or relief from this and luckily BOTOX® injections are FDA-approved for severe underarm sweating that is inadequately managed with topical agents.
The treatment is a series of tiny injections and that unbelievably are NOT PAINFUL. All patients say how amazed that it does not hurt and how quick and simple the whole process is but most of all that IT WORKS.
You can return to normal activities that same day. Repeat treatments also give longer-lasting results over time. Our sweating treatment clinics are in London and Bristol.
Other excessive sweating treatments
The most common methods for stopping sweating in the armpit or underarm area are antiperspirants and deodorants. Products such as Mitchum offer extra-strong formulations and are available in the chemist.
Stronger aluminium hydroxide preparations like Driclor are applied at night. These can be helpful in stopping sweat for a few months. However, a tolerance can be generated in which case the effectiveness diminishes. Also, patients can be put off by the skin irritation that can quite often occur.
Often patients have tried a whole range of antiperspirants before finally having Botox injections to stop their sweating.
Other home treatments such as iontophoresis are effective but again expensive and time-consuming and need to be done 2-3 times a week. This is the preferred method of choice for sweaty hands and feet, but inconvenient for underarms.

Your Hyperhidrosis questions answered
Why do I get excessive sweating /hyperhidrosis?
The causes of excessive sweating can be due to anxiety, inherited condition, obesity or illness. However, in most cases, the cause is simply unknown. What treatments are available to stop sweating? Treatment options include antiperspirants, deodorants, sweat pads, medications (propranolol, robinul), BOTOX® injections and surgery. To get rid of armpit sweating is difficult but luckily BOTOX® injection treatments DO WORK and GUARANTEED to stop sweating.
Where does the sweat go after an armpit treatment?
The rest of the body compensates and ensures an even distribution so no other areas become affected.
Botox for hyperhidrosis is a life-changing treatment that enables people to have confidence in wearing normal clothes and not having to wear padding or change their shirts during the day.
What is the cost of BOTOX® injections for hyperhidrosis excessive sweating for the underarms?
The cost is £500.
What happens when the BOTOX® treatment wears off?
You can repeat the treatment as and when you need it. After successive treatments, the results last longer and are often not required as frequently.
How do I know if I have excessive sweating?
Normal sweating is a way to help keep the body temperature steady in hot weather, during a fever or when exercising. Excessive sweating/hyperhidrosis means that you sweat much more than considered normal. Even when you are not hot, anxious or exercising. you produce a lot of sweat. Excessive sweating is classified as either focal or generalized.
How do the BOTOX® injections work?
BOTOX® stops the nerve endings sending messages to the sweat glands and temporarily reduces the sweating. BOTOX® is also commonly used to treat wrinkles by relaxing certain muscles of the face. It is best known for BOTOX® wrinkle injections.
Botulinum toxin can also be used for a variety of different medical procedures given its unique properties. These unique elements allow the toxin to target specific neuromuscular junctions in the acetylcholine pathway. This pathway is only used by muscle and sweat gland receptors. This means the action can be so specific to the molecular level.
Certain areas where botox injections are now used are, muscle spasms in neck and eye areas, bladder instability by relaxing the detrusor muscle to help alleviate an overactive bladder, back pain to help ease the accessory muscles, jaw bruxism to aid the relaxation of lockjaw and some cases it has been known to help plantar fasciitis on the soles of the feet. It has also been shown to help in the treatment of migraines.
How does BOTOX® work to stop the underarm body sweat?
Botox injections work by stopping the sweat glands over firing and producing too much sweat. There is no effect on sweating elsewhere as it is a targeted treatment for small localized areas such as the underarms, hands or head.
BOTOX® aims to reduce sweating by up to 80% and is best for controlling sweating symptoms in the underarms, face and hands.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatments only take about 20 minutes and you can resume normal activities immediately. Rarely some patients who are very large or have a severe problem require a bigger dose which carries a supplemental fee which can be discussed with the doctor
Is BOTOX® for hyperhidrosis treatment available on the NHS?
No, it is listed as a cosmetic treatment and therefore needs to be done privately.
Other excessive sweating treatments
The most common methods for stopping sweating in the armpit or underarm area are antiperspirants and deodorants. Products such as Mitchum based can be helpful. Stronger aluminium hydroxide preparations like Driclor are applied at night. These can be helpful in stopping sweat for a few months. However, a tolerance can be generated in which case the effectiveness diminishes. Also, patients can be put off by the skin irritation that can quite often occur. Other home treatments such as iontophoresis are effective but again expensive and time-consuming and need to be done 2-3 times a week. It is the preferred method of choice for sweaty hands and feet.
Is excess sweat bad for my skin?
Hyperhidrosis can potentially cause painful or irritating skin problems due to the persistent damp in the area and the slightly acidic nature of the sweat itself. For example, patients may experience bacterial or fungal overgrowth, infections, and disintegration (also called maceration) of the skin. Skin tends to look and feel much healthier when it is not subjected to excessive amounts of sweat.
What does focused vs generalised hyperhidrosis mean?
Patients can have excessive sweating either in a localised area (focal) or over the entire body (generalised).
The conditions we treat are focal, affecting specific areas such as the axillae (underarms) or hands with varying degrees of severity.
