Dr. Paul Silvester Clinic is one of the foremost facial aesthetics clinics in Bath, UK where you can undergo a number of Botox treatments for wrinkle reduction and hyperhidrosis. In today’s post, we are going to briefly discuss two Botox treatments you can avail at Dr. Paul Silvester’s chamber at Bath.
Botox for Hyperhidrosis
Botulinum toxin aka Botox is basically a protein substance produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria which is now being used for treating the condition of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. Botox is licensed in the UK for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis and a few Botox injections would effectively reduce underarm sweating for at least 4-6 months.
How does it work?
Botox works against severe axillary sweating by blocking the secretion of the chemical which is responsible for the activation of the sweat glands or the eccrine glands. The chemical is blocked at the end of the nerves in a way which won’t allow it to work on the muscles or glands.
The Treatment Procedure
A fine needle is used to inject the Type A Botox a few centimetres apart in your armpit. Ideally, you’d need around 100 units of Botox for treating both the armpits and the treatment can take up to 6 months’ time.
You will notice a marked reduction in underarm sweating within one month after the completion of the treatment.
Botox for hyperhidrosis is a painless treatment which would take less than half an hour of your time. You can go back to regular work once you are done with the session.
Botox for Wrinkle Reduction
One of the most popular anti-ageing treatments of our time, Botox injections is a safe procedure which addresses a number of skin issues like wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet.
Why go for Botox for wrinkle reduction?
Once we start getting older our facial skin starts to crease especially in the areas around the eyes, lips and forehead. These creases are a result of the continual use of facial muscles and a decreased production of elastin and collagen. Anti-wrinkle injections using Botox would significantly diminish the flexibility of the facial muscles and prevent them from flexing and moving which in turn keeps your skin from being creased as it recovers. The wrinkles will start to soften a week after your treatment and eventually fade away with time. The results are known to last for at least 6 months.
A number of injections will be given in the facial area with a fine needle. The injections don't cause much pain and you will be able to resume your daily work immediately after the session. This virtually painless treatment doesn’t involve the application of any local anaesthetic.
The crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines would be significantly reduced or even vanish within 1-2 weeks. As already mentioned before the results of this treatment would last for around 6 months after which you need to go for a fresh session.

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, as it is often known, can be an unpleasant condition for both the person suffering and for others around them. Some people with hyperhidrosis can sweat up to five times more than is needed for the body to use the sweating system as it should to reduce heat, and cool down the body.
For most people, anti-perspirants and regular washing are adequate to keep sweating in control without any embarrassing situations where your sweat becomes unmanageable. If you suffer from excessive sweating, trying to control the flow of sweat can often end up leaving you panicked and stressed, which has the adverse effect of making you sweat more.
One of the most popular and effective ways to deal with sweat is to use Botox to halt the nerve which triggers the production of sweat.
How does it work?
During the procedure, Botox is injected into certain areas of the skin where sweat is produced in excess. The Botox works by blocking the nerves that supply the eccrine gland, in turn preventing the glands from producing sweat. The product within Botox is botulinum toxin, which has been used safely for many years to suit a wide range of treatments across the body and face. After your treatment, you'll be able to return to your normal day, whether that's work or leisure, within 20 minutes.
Is it effective?
There are several reasons why Botox is such a popular solution to excess sweating, including the almost non-existent recovery time. Compared to other cosmetic procedures, the injections are non-invasive and almost entirely pain free, with people reporting to feel only a tiny pinprick as the needle reaches the skin. The results can be seen within the month of treatment and usually last up to six months.
