Excessive Sweating Treatment
Botulinum toxin injections can be used to inactivate overactive sweat glands in the armpit for individuals who have a problem with excessive sweating. This condition is called hyperhydrosis and botulinums toxin injections are one of the most effective treatments currently available for this condition. People often feel embarrassed and distressed by this problem and resort to wearing only dark clothes to conceal the problem. For these patients botulinum injections can have an enormous impact on their quality of life and improve self-esteem and confidence.
Before you have botulinum treatment for excessive sweating it is a good idea to see your Gp and exclude any medical problem that can cause excessive sweating such as thyroid gland dysfunction. Your Gp may choose to do some blood tests to help exclude a medical cause. If no cause is found then your Gp may advise you to proceed with the injections injections. Dr Ward and her medical team can advise you further.
Treatments for excessive sweating can last up to 6-9 months. Re-treatment will be necessary to maintain results.
Very small needles are used in this procedure so that discomfort is kept to a minimum.
Treatment can take between 15 and 30 minutes. After treatment you can carry on with your daily activities. We ask that you do not use deodorants for the first 24 hours after treatment.
Botulinum treatments are not instant and can take up to two weeks to have an effect. We will review you at two weeks to see if the desired effect has been achieved.
Dr Ward always gets it just right with my treatments and ensures that they look subtle and natural, just the way i like. I started on the Obagi skin care programme and since then there has been no looking back.. Obagi is the best kept secret in anti-ageing!![Jennifer, Kent ]
I often model on Dr Jo’s Botox and fillers course and its great to see her pass on her knowledge and enthusiasm to other professionals. She is clearly highly respected in this industry but what is wonderful is that she hasnt lost that lovely personal and warm touch. This is what sets her apart..Its always a pleasure to be involved”[Kate, Surrey ]
Dr Ward was the first person to really take my son’s acne seriously.. it was like a breath of fresh air..Thank you for listening and for understanding how acne can affect so much in a young person’s life. I highly recommend Doctor Jo Ward to anyone who has struggled in silence with a skin problem”[Jane, Surrey ]
I first met Dr Ward in her Harley Street clinic. Since then I have followed her to every clinic she has ever worked in!! Such is my faith in her… When you find a reliable and excellent cosmetic physician, travelling a few extra miles is worth it..”[Alex, London ]
The new Skin Clinic in Sevenoaks is wonderful. I have no doubt Dr Ward will soon have a queue at her clinic door..Not only is she the best injector in town but she is so warm and so passionate about what she does its infectious.. I leave every consultation with a renewed interest in my skin”[Rose, Kent ]
