Frequenty Asked Questions

Which areas can be treated?

Armpits, hands, feet and face. Botox® aims to reduce sweating by up to 80%.

Any adult who suffers from hyperhidrosis is a suitable candidate for this treatment. It is important to rule out any underlying medical conditions that may contribute to excessive sweating such as the menopause and an overactive thyroid gland. Ideally, the treatment is for people who:

  • Find it affects confidence and social contact

  • Have stained clothing and uncontrollable odour

What does the procedure involve?

The treatment is administered by injecting Botox® into the affected areas. It takes about 30 minutes to complete. Local anaesthetic creams are provided.

What happens after the procedure?

You will be able to get back to your routine daily activity as normal. You should refrain from drinking alcohol or performing strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the treatment.

Is Botox® for treatment available on the NHS?

No, it is listed as a cosmetic treatment.

How long do the results last?

The treatment can last 3 to 9 months.

Dr Sawyer is an astounding surgeon. He is supportive and reassuring both before and post operation, putting your needs and requests forefront. He performed a flawless septorhinoplasty on my nose, simultaneously fixing the airways, shape and size of my nose caused initially by a cleft lip and pallet. I would recommend Dr Sawyer to anyone as he is understanding with a warm and reassuring approach, explaining the procedure in great detail. The procedure ran smoothly and efficiently with a perfect quality of care throughout and the results are outstanding. This surgery has both filled me with confidence and has allowed me to live my best life.
