Excessive Sweating Treatments

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating on Armpits)

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a very common condition, which has two main types. Focal hyperhidrosis is the more common type and involves excessive sweating on the feet, hands, armpits and occasionally, the face. Generalised hyperhidrosis is less common.

Excessive sweating affects about 4% of the western population; it often interferes with the individual's life by causing physiological problems, such as cold and clammy hands, dehydration, and skin infections secondary to maceration of the skin, as well as emotional consequences due to embarrassment, limiting daily activities, interfering with interpersonal relationships, necessitating frequent changes of clothes, etc.

 

The benefits of BOTOX® injections for Hyperhidrosis

Excessive sweating treatments by Botulinum Toxin can offer a life-changing solution for patients.

By injecting low doses of BOTOX® into the underarm, for example, it can reduce the transition of impulses and thus sweating activity by temporarily blocking the nerves that stimulate sweating for up to a year.
