Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any patients Botox isn’t suited to?

Botox for hyperhidrosis is not recommended for pregnant women or mothers who are breastfeeding. It is also unsuitable for those with muscle or nerve disorders or on medications for nerve or muscle problems, such as Gentamicin and Quinidine. Those with neuromuscular disease, Myasthenia Gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome are also unable to have this treatment.

Are there any side effects of Botox treatment?

The injections can often cause small bruises although these disappear within a few days. The muscles around the site of injection may also feel weaker than normal but again, these symptoms disappear within a week or two and should have no effect on your everyday life

Does it work?

Medical studies and patient testimonials have confirmed that Botox reduces sweating and improves lifestyle; of course the level of reduction depends on each individual. However, Botox is not a cure for hyperhidrosis. As the nerve endings regrow, the sweating returns but at this stage you should receive top-up injections to start the cycle again, keeping the area dry. Sometimes sweat glands can be missed out and so you may experience a small level of sweating in some areas of your hands, feet or armpits. This is easily solved with top-up injections at your next appointment and you can bring it to the physician’s attention so they can concentrate on these areas.

Is Botox safe? Isn’t it a poison?

This toxin is a natural protein derived from Clostridium botulinum, the bacterium that gives us food poisoning, or botulism. However, this toxin has been purified and refined, and is deemed safe and effective to use when administered by a specialist. It presents no major harm to the body when treating hyperhidrosis, and is only active in the specific area where it is injected; it does not spread throughout the body.

In what areas is Botox injected?

Botox can be used to control excess sweating for axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis, the palms of your hands, feet or excessive facial sweating.

How much does Botox cost?

If you cannot access Botox treatment on the NHS, or choose not to, Botox costs between around £400 per treatment privately, depending on the number of injections needed. The treatment needs to be repeated every 3 to six months for maximum effect.

Are there different Brands of Botox (Botulinum Toxin)

Botox is the most well-known brand of Botulinum Toxin. Other brands include Azzalure and Boccuture. Your physician will discuss which brand is best suited for your treatment.
