Axillary Hyperhidrosis (Armpits)

Excessive sweating from the armpit can be a genuine problem. Sufferers have to endure the discomfort and irritation of the frequent moisture in the armpits and worrying about embarrassing wet patches being noticed. This can interfere with social and work situations.

The first line of treatment is the simple use of antiperspirant containing Aluminium Chloride however this can often be insufficient to keep the problem under control. Surgery is difficult for excessive armpit sweating, and as with all surgical procedures, can have significant risks and complications, and is a considerable undertaking.

BOTOX® therapy can be used to control the problem. Taking less than an hour to perform, infiltration of the problem area with botulinum toxin will block the nerve endings in that area stimulating the sweat glands and hence effectively reduce the volume of sweat production. Results are not permanent with sweating returning slowly over 6 months so the procedure will need to be repeated to keep the condition under control. Sometimes it has been found that after a few treatments, top ups are required less often however.

Axillary BOTOX® treatment costs £380 for both armpits – an initial consultation will be required to assess and discuss the treatment options.

“Invisalign – Light. Crooked front teeth that had started to become more noticeable. This, in turn, started to affect my confidence.

The experience at Beaufort Park was excellent throughout. The staff, from the initial consultation, were friendly and professional. The welcoming reception staff through to the excellent dentist (Russell Gidney) have made this an (almost!) pleasurable experience!

I feel so much more confident and happy to smile again in public.

“I hated my smile in photos, I looked as though I only had about 4 teeth! 🙁

Treatments have all been explained, the team have been great & I have started to notice my teeth changing & looking good – despite not even being half way through my treatment (Invisalign Aligner 11/23). I am so happy with the progress.

Thank you! 🙂

Super, I would recommend to anyone considering treatment.

“After years of being unhappy with my crooked teeth and avoiding photographers if at all possible.

I decided to seek corrective treatment at the grand old age of 55 in order to be able to smile at my daughters up coming wedding. After a chat with the Beaufort Dental practice I decided on a course of CFast treatment. In a few short months I was thrilled with the result. Straight teeth which were so much easier to care for and which looked 100 per cent more attractive

The cost was manageable too and I paid at intervals during the treatment. I wish I’d done it years ago.


“I did not like my teeth so didn’t smile.

Invisalign – absolutely brilliant! Very professional team, extremely happy with the results!”

“Even though my oral hygiene has always been excellent I have for many years hated my teeth which were discoloured + the crowns rather mismatched.

Dr Russell Gidney was the first dentist I had confidence in to correct my problems. He showed great empathy, kindness + professional skill. He made me feel completely at ease.

His dental nurses + admin staff are all lovely. The outcome is better than I expected, I now have a lovely smile!”

“I recently had cosmetic work on my teeth carried out by Russell at the surgery. he explained everything in detail and I am overjoyed with the results. The difference it has made is amazing and I thoroughly recommend them. The staff are very helpful too!”
