Excess Sweating

MEDICAL
DERMATOLOGY

Excessive sweating whether from the underarms, face, forehead or hands can be a hugely embarrassing and life-impacting problem for many people. Medically it is known as hyperhidrosis. It was Dr Lowe of Cranley Clinic who performed research into how Botox could be used to treat this condition and it was his pioneering work which led to the approval of this treatment in the UK and USA.

We inject small doses into the skin, which blocks the nerves that supply the eccrine (sweat) glands, and this prevents the glands from producing sweat.  Results can last between six to twelve months.
