Anti-Sweat Injections

Sweating is a normal bodily process, which occurs to allow your body to loose heat, however some people suffer from Excessive Sweating, a condition known as Hyperhidrosis. This condition can affect both men and women, and can be highly embarrassing as it can leave visible signs on your clothing, and can affect your self-esteem and confidence in public, social or business environments.

Bellissima Facial Aesthetics is able to offer professional consultations and treatments to reduce the amount of sweat produced by your sweat glands. If you are interested in booking a consultation with Dr C V Elliott BDS, please contact us.

Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum is administered by injecting it into the affected area where it effectively blocks the nerve functions which supply the sweat glands.

Treatment Procedure

After an initial consultation and examination, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area, once this has taken effect, the effected area is injected using a tiny needle which is easily tolerated by most patients, who find the injection causes mild temporary discomfort. Injecting takes between 15-30 minutes; any marks from the needles fade shortly after, usually leaving no visible signs except in very rare cases sometimes a small bruise. Pre and post procedural advice and guidelines will be given to all clients.

Length of Procedure

For the initial visit, discussion, examination and treatment, approximately one hour. The treatment is often completed within 15-30 minutes, depending on the areas of treatment.

Side Effects

Botulinum toxin is safe in expert hands, and side effects of this treatment are rare. Occasionally mild temporary bruising may develop in the area of treatment.

Not Suitable for:

  • Patients who have some rare neuromuscular disorders – such as myasthenia gravis and Eaton Lambert syndrome
  • Patients who were on aminoglycoside antibiotics
  • Pregnant women

The cost will vary depending on the dosage required which is unique to each patient, but generally prices range from £400.00
