Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can start around puberty and in many cases tends to ease in adulthood. However, for some people. Hyperhidrosis can continue or even worsen as time goes on.
Traditional remedies such as prescribed anti-perspirants can irritate the skin, making it red and sore. At Rosie Cooper Aesthetics in Leamington Spa and Oxford, we offer Botox® injections for hyperhidrosis; a safe, quick and effective treatment with results that can last up to 6 months at a time, without the need for chemical roll-ons.
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a medically-prescribed neurotoxin, which has been used for many years to treat a myriad of medical concerns. When we inject Botox® into areas such as the armpits, hands, feet, underneath the breasts, the face and anywhere where there is excessive sweating it blocks the nerve receptors, responsible for sweat gland production. This reduces excessive perspiration, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues. A Botox® treatment for hyperhidrosis can reduce sweating by as much as 90 percent.
After completing some standard consent forms, we will ask you to relax on one of our treatment couches. Your practitioner will clean the area/s to be treated and then apply a special dye, which will show where the injections will be best placed, for optimum results. Then, small amounts of Botox® will be placed in to the skin, using a very fine needle. In some cases, where the treatment areas are very sensitive, a topical or injectable anaesthetic can be used.
Botox® is a prescribed drug and therefore, before any treatment can be administered using this substance, we ask that you attend a no obligation consultation with one of our medical practitioners, so that they can discuss your concerns, examine the area/s to be treated as well as check your medical history, to ensure there are no contraindications, which may mean that this treatment is not suitable for you as an individual. It might be that you are pregnant or breast feeding. Once you have had your child and stopped breast feeding, you will most-likely be able to have a Botox® treatment, once your medical practitioner has assessed you once more.
Botox® is administered using very fine needles, so is far more comfortable as a procedure than some other injectables. However, some areas which are treated for hyperhidrosis can be more sensitive than others. If you are particularly sensitive however, we may be able to offer you a topical or injectable anaesthetic.
Most patients start to notice that their excessive sweating eases after 2 to 3 weeks of having the treatment.
Many of our clients can enjoy the results from a Botox® treatment for hyperhidrosis for up to 6 months at a time. This makes the treatment extremely convenient for those who live busy lives, as they only need to return to the clinic for this treatment, twice a year.
Rosie has simply changed my life. Her expertise and attention to detail have not only visually transformed my appearance but have equally given me back my confidence.
From the first conversation with Rosie I felt reassured that I would be given the best treatment. However I never expected such exceptional aftercare too.
I had a deep scar and the treatment results have reduced me to tears. There is no hard sell, just professional advice delivered in a caring and calm environment.
My advice is to book a consultation with Rosie. You too can then share your positive experience and transformations.”
Rosie always listens carefully to what I think I need, before she makes any suggestions. She has introduced me to new products by giving me her honest opinion and I have always been thrilled with the result.
I’ve been to another practitioner in the UK and one in South Africa, but Rosie’s expertise is beyond compare.

I cannot thank Rosie enough for the healthier and younger looking image that I now have; my confidence and positive outlook have soared along with my looks.
I am so thrilled with Rosie’s work that I would never dream of letting another practitioner touch my skin – her results are nothing short of miraculous!
– JJ, Warwickshire
To me, the results already look like a transformation – in the subtlest way of course. I love the fact that my eyebrows have lifted, and I love the new pout. I never thought I would do this kind of treatment – I thought I would age gracefully without help! – But I’m so happy I did.
– Rachel, Oxfordshire
Once you’ve been to Rosie, I can assure you, you’ll never want to go anywhere else for treatments ever again. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants to look more vibrant and confident.
