What is Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum Toxin is a naturally occurring protein and is a prescription medicine. There are several brands of Botulinum Toxin on the market eg. Botox cosmetic™, Visabel™, Xeomin™. Botox™ must be administered by medical practitioners. At Springwell Clinic our nurses are all trained and have many years of experience using Botulinum Toxins.

What does the treatment feel like?

A very fine needle is used to inject small amounts of BOTOX™ just under the skin. There is only a small amount of discomfort and anaesthetic cream can be used to numb the area if you wish. Occasionally this may cause a small bruise but other side effects are rare. Sweating is reduced within a few days and the results remain for up to 7 months.

Am I suitable for treatment?

If you suffer with excessive underarm sweating you can be treated for it with Botulinum Toxin. You cannot have BOTOX™ treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have any allergies to BOTOX™, are taking certain antibiotics, or if you suffer from severe neuromuscular disorders. You will have a one on one consultation with your nurse prior to any treatment where you can discuss BOTOX™ fully to see if it is the right treatment for you? The price of the treatment is £495.

I've had this treatment 3 times now and it has changed my life. Before I had the treatment I was really embarrassed by the sweat marks on my clothes and I constantly worried that I would smell at work and when I went out with my friends. I read that BOTOX™ would help so I tried it not expecting it to work but it was amazing. Within 2 days I was 'normal' and it lasted so long. I relax now and don't worry like I used to.
