Anti-sweat injections

Excessive armpit sweating treatment is provided in the form of anti-sweat injections. They can be delivered safely and with minimal discomfort to prevent and treat sweating

Treatments for excessive armpit sweating can range from topical applications to anti-sweat injections. At The Treatment Rooms we will talk you through all the available treatments at consultation.

Sweating under the armpit is normal however some people may suffer from excessive sweating in a condition called Hyperhidrosis. If you suffer from this, you may prefer a long term solution in the form of anti-sweat injections.

Anti-sweat injections to your armpit are an effective way of preventing your glands from secreting sweat. The injection uses the same ingredient as for anti-wrinkle treatments, which works at you sweat gland to reduce its secretions for up to 6 months.

The procedure works well as a treatment and as a preventative measure against underarm sweating.

What can I expect from my consultation?

The Treatment Rooms’ doctor will hold a thorough consultation exploring your concerns and establish a treatment plan that is best suited to you. In cases where you are completely happy with your treatment plan, you may receive your first course of injections on the same day.

Are the injections painful?

The injections may cause mild discomfort and there may be some soreness at the injection site after treatment. A numbing cream will be applied to these sites beforehand to help reduce the pain.

How long does the treatment take?

The injection process will only last a few minutes. Before this takes place, our doctors will thoroughly assess your anatomy to accurately mark the optimal and safest points for injection. In total, your treatment will last for approximately 30 minutes.

How long do the results last for?

It takes as long as three weeks to see the full results of your anti-sweat injections. Once you see the full results it usually lasts between 3-6 months, after which you may choose to repeat the treatment.

Are there any side effects or complications?

As with any medical procedure there are always potential complications. As part of your consultation and consent, our doctors will go through the risks involved in your specific treatment, answer any questions you may have and help you come to an informed decision about your care. Our doctors are happy to talk you through the medical knowledge and techniques they use to minimise these risks.

Who cannot have anti-sweat injections?

The following people are not suitable for anti-sweat injections:

  • If you have Lambert-Eaten syndrome, Myasthenia Gravis or any other neuromuscular disorder
  • If you have a skin infection at the site of injection
  • If you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant or are breastfeeding
