Excessive sweating, also known as ‘Hyperhidrosis’ can profoundly affect self-consciousness and be a seriously embarrassing condition. When severe sweating interferes with daily activities, it can cause great emotional and psychological upset, especially when it is sweating from the underarms. It is estimated that up to 5% of the population suffers from some form of hyperhidrosis during their lives.
Here at PHI Clinic, our cosmetic doctors are highly experienced in all non-surgical procedures, including treating this condition. If you are considering treatment for excessive sweating then the first step is to book in for an initial consultation, to ascertain how sweating affects you, and what type of hyperhidrosis you have. At this point, we can begin to recommend a treatment and costing plan to suit you, your availability for downtime, and your budget.Book consultation
Factors to consider
This condition can affect the entire body or only localised areas, like the feet, hands, and underarms. The latter is known as axillary hyperhidrosis, which we have treatments for here at PHI Clinic. When this condition develops during childhood or after puberty, it is usually primary hyperhidrosis, that does not have a specific cause. Secondary hyperhidrosis is usually triggered by a condition, like pregnancy, hyperthyroidism, obesity, menopause, or even anxiety.
Our patients seeking treatment may be frustrated that anti-perspirant just is not working; they may be constantly worried that people might notice their sweat stains, or they may refrain from buying certain clothes as they fear they will be ruined by their underarm sweat.
Who Will Perform My Treatment?
Botox for hyperhidrosis treatments are performed in clinic by our highly trained injectors, including our Botox nurses, Sam and Sarah, as well as our doctors, who all receive ongoing training from our medical director, Dr Tapan. Our in house training academy, Academy 102, provides the perfect setting for the personal mentoring that the doctor provides to the nurses, who receive a unique level of education that rivals that of most aesthetic doctors.
Weekly meetings ensure that every member of the team is injecting safely and effectively to give every patient the gold standard in treatments, in line with our core values at PHI that promote excellence without compromise. At around 4-6 weeks post treatment, we invite every patient for a follow up consultation to assess treatment results and discuss any concerns that may arise. If necessary, this is also when your clinician would make any tweaks to your outcomes by adding more product.
Our Nurses Treating Our Dr Tapan
Dr Tapan takes such pride in educating our clinicians, and our Botox nurses are so exceptional that they perform the doctor’s personal treatments. You can find a selection of photographs that showcase Dr Tapan’s last treatment with our nurse injectors below.
Treatments available for Excessive Sweating
miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands. Two procedures are typically recommended, 3 months apart, to maximise the quality and duration of results.
While sweating is an essential body function for temperature-control, the underarms house less than 2% of the body’s sweat glands, and miraDry is completely safe.
We introduced miraDry to the UK in January 2014 and have performed hundred...Read on Book consultation

Instead of looking like a rather sad panda, I look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed
Four weeks ago, I found myself on a couch in a Harley Street clinic, a doctor marking up my face with a Sharpie, indicating the places he was about to inject with filler.
