Service Description

Botulinum toxin injections Botulinum toxin injections provide an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis in many people. Treatment involves injecting small doses of the same agents used to aid skin wrinkles into the skin of the affected areas. They work by blocking the action of nerves that supply the eccrine (sweat) glands. This stops the glands from producing sweat. Treatment totally blocks the nerve ending for about 6-12 weeks, but then new nerve endings start to form. This means the effects of the treatment of hyperhidrosis lasts for several months but will eventually wear off. What does the treatment involve? You will need a number of small injections with a fine needle into the affected areas such as your armpits. The injections may cause some discomfort and your skin may be slightly red and inflamed immediately after treatment. This normally resolves within a few hours. Are there any side effects? Side effects include bruising or tenderness at the injection sites and increased sweating at other sites. Rare side effects include itching, muscle aches, allergic reactions and muscle weakness. How long does it take to work? Most patients notice some positive changes within the first week after treatment. The effects usually last between 4-7 months.

Cancellation Policy

We are always as accommodating as possible to assist our clients, however, due to the high volume and popularity of the treatments we offer, we have felt the need to introduce a formal Deposit and Cancellation Policy. We respect that your time is valuable and we appreciate that you understand ours is too. If appointments are cancelled or rescheduled at short notice, or if you do not attend an appointment, this means we are unable to re-use that time for other clients. We understand that occasionally a short-notice cancellation may be unavoidable and if it is possible to reschedule your appointment, without causing an issue for our clinic operations, we will try to do so. However, because it is often difficult to re-book an appointment slot within 48 hours, we have taken the decision to institute a 48-hour cancellation policy. A deposit will now be taken when booking any treatment. This will be deducted from your bill for the relevant treatment. We guarantee that where notification to cancel appointments is given, with more than 48 hours’ notice, deposits will be refunded or offset against any future treatment required. Where late cancellations are notified (including failing to attend without notification) with less than 48 hours’ notice, we will retain your deposit or deduct a treatment from a course of prepaid treatments. To help our clients minimise the chance of losing their deposit or treatments from their courses, we do send out text reminders a minimum of 48 hours ahead of appointments. Although due to circumstances beyond our control this may not always be possible and clients should therefore not rely on a text reminder. How to notify the clinic about cancelling an appointment: Notification is always best by cancelling your appointment on the online portal or if there are difficulties with you doing so, then please leave a text message or voicemail should you be unable to get through to us via telephone at 07525 213777. The sooner notification is given the sooner we are able to offer your appointment to another patient and avoid your deposit being retained.
