Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is caused by stimulation of the sweat glands by nerve endings. These nerves respond to emotional stresses; like intimate social situations, public speaking, physical stresses, and increased body temperature that comes with exercise or hot humid weather. ​
Botox® can prevent sweating for months by blocking the release of the neurotransmitter (acetylcholine), from the nerve endings, that causes the glands to produce sweat, leaving you dry and more confident.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW MUCH DOES TREATMENT COST?
The price of treatment will vary depending on what treatment is being carried out and the quantity of product being used. Please see prices . Please note it’s important to be individually assessed for an exact treatment quote, as product quantity will vary from person to person. All treatments should be paid for in full prior to starting the treatment. This is the policy of Clinic Four Limited.
I'M SCARED OF PAIN. WHAT PAIN MANAGEMENT OPTIONS DO YOU OFFER?
Anesthesia is a way to numb the area being injected so that you don't have any pain during the treatment. We provide 2 types of anesthetic solutions.

1. Topical anaesthetic: Topical creams like EMLA can be applied to the face and will provide a little anaesthesia. However, it needs to be left on for at least 30 minutes prior to the procedure.
2. Local anesthetic: For a more profound anaesthetic effect, a local anaesthetic, like that undertaken at the dentist, can be administered.

HOW LONG DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS LAST?
Weakening of the injected muscles begins to be apparent after 2-3 days with the peak effect being reached after 10-14 days. Results can last 3-6 months. The procedure can be repeated after 3 months; however, injections given less than 3 month intervals may reduce the efficacy of the injections.

The duration of effect varies greatly from person to person. It is dependent on many factors such as dosage used, how often you come back for maintenance tops ups as well as physiological and environmental factors. For example if you exercise a lot or use saunas/steam rooms, this may break down the effects of the injections faster than someone that doesn't do the above.
