Medical Aesthetics

We offer treatments to combat excessive sweating, teeth grinding and also Migraines


Hyperhidrosis is a medical term for excessive sweating. It affects approximately 1% of the population and can cause skin irritation as well as lack of confidence and self-esteem.

In many cases, Botox treatments have proven to be effective in combating hyperhidrosis, reducing sweating by up to 95%. Results usually last 6-9 months, with many people reporting longer-lasting benefits.

As a result of budget cuts within the NHS it is now extremely difficult to obtain treatment on the NHS. However, at Durham Private Doctors we can discuss possible solutions in a discreet and professional setting.
As well as the standard approach to hyperhidrosis with botox injections in the armpits, other areas of excessive sweating such as scalp, hands, face etc. can now be treated easily using the Wow fusion device.


Teeth grinding or jaw clenching is also known as bruxism. People who suffer with bruxism grind their teeth, or clench their jaw, involuntarily. It can happen while they are awake or asleep and is often related to stress and anxiety. Bruxism can cause facial pain, dental problems, earaches and migraines.

Botox injections into the jaw muscle have been shown to relieve bruxism successfully, by relaxing the jaw muscle and preventing involuntary grinding or clenching.


Dr Helen Marsden trained in the treatment of migraines, and in particular the treatment of Chronic Migraine Syndrome using Botox. She learnt this technique from neurologists in London and has gained experience in local migraine clinics too. She now has many patients who have responded well to this potentially life-changing treatment.

Within the NHS it is extremely hard to qualify for and obtain Botox injections for Chronic Migraine Syndrome. However, this is something that we can offer. Please feel free to book a consultation to discuss your needs and assess your suitability for such treatment.
