Frequently Asked Questions
Firstly, you need to make sure there are no other medical conditions that may be contributing to your excessive sweating.* Once that has been ruled out, you are suitable for treatment of this.
Dr Sharma will inject small amounts of the same compound used for wrinkle relaxing into your armpit region in order to slow down the production of sweat by the sweat glands.
We can treat most body parts that are causing you distress.
Most frequently, we treat armpit sweating, forehead sweating, armpit sweating and back-of-the-neck sweating. However, if you want another body part treated, send us an email and ask!
The treatment can take up to half an hour including all the preparation involved.
The injections are very superficial so you may feel a bit of a sting, but it isn’t painful. You can resume regular activities a couple of hours after the treatment.
The anti-perspirant effect can last from anywhere between 3 and 9 months.* It really depends on each individual person. You won’t need to be re-treated within 3 months.
All appointments include a full assessment (with treatment recommendations).
After your treatment we will book you in for a complimentary 2 week follow up appointment. This appointment is to assess your progress. Dr Sharma does not treat patients by counting units of product. You tell us what you want treated and we will work off a set price.
Also, Dr Sharma is available 24/7 for his clients and is more than happy to receive a call or text any time of the day (or night!). This way you can be satisfied that you have a doctor to answer your questions at any time.
