Excessive Sweating Injections
It is estimated about 1% of the population suffers from excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis). This can have devastating effects on a sufferer’s confidence both socially and in the workplace. Treatment for excessive sweating brings rapid and long-term relief.
This treatment represents a real alternative, especially where medication and surgery have proven ineffective. The effects take 1-2 weeks to take place but last 6 months and often longer depending on the frequency of treatments.
Botulinum toxin is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
What should I expect and how do I prepare for the treatment?
Prior to the treatment: The night before the procedure you should shave your armpits. The day of the treatment you should wash off any deodorant prior to your appointment.
The actual procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes and is totally straightforward. A series of small amounts of Botulinum toxin injections are performed at the identified underarm areas through a very fine needle.
Post treatment advice
Simply avoid touching, rubbing or apply anything (ie. deodorants) on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to shower on the same day of the treatment or exercise for 24 hours after the procedure.

I had botox injections for excessive sweating, and it is fair to say it has transformed my life! No more embarrassment, and I can wear whatever clothes I want to. Amazing.MH
“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”Mrs Johnston
I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.Linnea Blair
“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”GMK Group
