Botox® for excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis and Underarm sweating.
Excessive sweating also known as hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by over activation of sweat glands. The condition can affect any part of the body but if most common in the axilla ( armpit) , feet and hands. At Visage Clinic we specialise in the treatment of hyperhidrosis and are Cork’s number one provider of the treatment.
Unlike topical treatments,Botulinum Neurtoxin Type A Botox® targets sweating as its source. tiny amounts of Botox® are injected into both underarms, skillfully and safely. The treatment takes only a minute or two. Botox® enters the sweat glands in the underarms responsible for sweating and blocks sweat release.
Patients treated with Botox® notice a remarkable improvement in hyperhidrosis symptoms. In clinical studies, 95% of patients with hyperhidrosis that was severe enough to interfere with their daily lives experienced the benefits of Botox® after just 1 week, with sweating reduced by an average of 83%.

What do you do for sweaty palms?
Every client that attends Visage Clinic undergoes a free consultation. This allows for assessment of the condition, the severity and anatomical areas affected. This consultation also allows you to meet your treating doctor and to ask any questions that you may have about the treatment. Once you decide that you would like to go ahead with treatment, the process begins, your doctor will assess the areas affected and select a safe and effective dosage. For sweating of the palms, we ask our patients to hold sterile ice packs for a period of 15-20 minutes. After this process topical local anaesthetic cream is applied to the palms to even further numb the area. Once this process is complete as series of injections takes place into targeted areas on the palm, the treatment is virtually pain free.
