Free Yourself From Excess Sweating in Cardiff

Though sweating itself is healthy and normal, cooling down the skin and ridding it of toxins, some people experience excessive sweating, even when sitting still. Excess sweating can be an embarrassing condition, affecting the appearance and generating a sour odour, which in turn can undermine self-confidence. At Dr Kathryn Aesthetics & Skincare, in Cardiff, we treat hyperhidrosis with injections of Botox, reducing levels of underarm sweating to that of the average person.

Treatment journey

Your treatment journey



Consultation is the first step in any treatment journey. Taking your medical history into account, we will listen carefully to understand your concerns and agree on a personalised treatment plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals.



From anti-wrinkle injections to chemical peels to dermal fillers, Dr Kathryn will draw from her knowledge and experience to expertly deliver the treatments agreed during your consultation, making sure you are comfortable and at ease.


Skin care

Though many treatments can be slotted into a short break in your working day, some require downtime and aftercare. We will advise you of anything you should avoid, while making sure you know the best way to care for your treated skin.


Questions about your treatment

  • Botox injections are far more versatile than is often understood. Though most commonly used to block the signals which tell your muscles to contract, it can also be used to block the signals which tell your body to start sweating. Carefully placed anti-wrinkle injections in the armpits significantly reduces levels of underarm sweating.

  • People who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat far more than is necessary, and the purpose of reducing the amount of sweat in a specific area is to rebalance rather than unbalance that function of the body. In addition, Botox injections work in localised areas, so sweating is reduced where the injections are placed and nowhere else. The overall impact on bodily sweat is minimal, with no negative impact on health, but the treatment itself will enable the effective reduction of sweat where it’s needed most.

  • Though there might be a small degree of discomfort, the needles used for Botox injections are extremely fine. If you are concerned about discomfort, a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment.

  • The treatment area might feel sore for the first 12 hours, and on occasion some clients describe a feeling of weariness or heaviness in the arms, but this tends to resolve within 2-3 days.

  • The results of this treatment usually last 9-12 months, though this varies from person to person. Having hyperhidrosis treatment once a year can turn a temporary relief from excess sweating into a lasting change.
