Underarm sweating injections at The Hogarth MediSpa, West London
Two visits a year and you don’t need to worry about wet patches due to excessive sweating at the underarm area on your clothes. As one of my patients put it “It’s wonderful to be able to wear an entirely new wardrobe after the simplest pain-free injections.”
Botulinum toxin has more than 26 different therapeutic indications in more than 80 countries and usually tops the charts of most popular non-surgical treatments worldwide.
It has its approval for underarm sweating from 2004 in the UK.
It selectively targets the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which stimulates sweat glands. Due to the lack of this stimulus, the sweat production decreases for a period of 5 to 6 months.
Yes, it is completely safe, there is no downtime or side effects. Patients are satisfied with the result, the effectivity is very good.
After cleaning the armpits, the treatment area is marked up to equal areas where the injections are administered with a very fine 32G needle superficially just beneath the skin. The discomfort is very minimal and the process doesn’t take mare the 20 minutes. Dr Bela uses Allergan’s botulinum toxin 50U per armpit.
It takes about 3 days for the effects to kick in and another week to develop completely. The duration of the effect is somewhere between 5 to 6 months when it could be repeated. There are no long-term side effects reported.
The treatment for two armpits is £400.
