Plantar Hyperhidrosis (Feet)

Excessive sweating from the feet is a common problem and one that people often learn to live with. However it can often be associated with unpleasant odour, maceration of the toes and infections such as athlete’s foot.

Plantar hyperhidrosis can be a particular problem for athletes, particularly distance runners who can be prone to extreme discomfort caused by the excessive moisture.

Simple techniques can be used to help. Synthetic shoes and man-made fibre socks exacerbate the problem. Changing socks regularly, alternating shoes daily to allow them to dry and going barefoot whenever possible helps to reduce the problem.

Treatment options include antiperspirant or iontophoresis (using low level electric currents in a water bath), but this is not effective for all people.

BOTOX® therapy can be used to control the problem. By infiltrating the surface skin of the soles of the feet with botulinum toxin, the nerve stimulation is blocked, effectively reducing the volume of sweat that is produced. Results are not permanent with sweating returning slowly from 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.

Palmar BOTOX® treatment costs £380 for both feet – 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!”
