Here at MediZen, Birmingham, we offer Botulinum toxin injections (of which Botox® is the best known brand name). This is a temporary yet effective treatment which works to reduce the symptoms of excessive sweating and hyperhidrosis in the underarm area.

Botulinum toxin is a natural protein that, when used in minute doses, works by blocking the release of chemicals from the nerves that send signals from the brain to the sweat glands, thereby reducing sweating. You may want to consider Botulinum toxin injections if prescription antiperspirants or other options have failed to work for you. Multiple injections are given to the area being treated and the reduction in sweat is seen almost immediately, albeit on a temporary basis.

When Botulinum toxin is administered to the underarm area, the procedure is considered very bearable, as it is quick and the injections relatively superficial.

Medical studies have confirmed that Botulinum toxin does work to reduce sweating. However, it is not a cure for hyperhidrosis as the nerve endings will gradually start to function again and repeat injections will be necessary in time (usually every 4-6 months).

It is worth speaking to one of our practitioners to see what other treatments options are available to you on a longer-term basis.

Prices start at £495 for one treatment. A free consultation with one of our expert practitioners in Sutton Coldfield will help you decide if botulinum toxin is the right treatment for you. To book your free consultation, call MediZen on 0121 667 5650.
