Excessive Sweating

If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating the new Botox® armpit sweating treatment may be the answer for you. The medical term for excessive sweating is Hyperhidrosis, and it affects both men and women. One of the most successful treatments involves a series of tiny injections using Botox® into the affected area to stop the sweating. Results can last for up to 8 months. You can return to normal activities that same day. Repeat treatments give longer lasting results over time.

Where does the sweat go?

The rest of the body compensates and ensures an even distribution so no other areas become affected.

What happens when the Botox® treatment wears off?

You can repeat the treatment as and when you need it. After successive treatments the results usually last longer.

Why does the excessive armpit sweating happen to me?

There is no known cause but very rarely it can be due to a medical condition such as over-active thyroid.

What is excessive sweating?

Normal sweating is a way to control body temperature in hot weather, during a fever or when exercising. Excessive sweating means that you sweat much more than considered normal, even when you are not hot, anxious or exercising.

How does Botox® work?

Botox stops the nerve endings sending messages to the sweat glands and temporarily reduces the sweating. Botox is also commonly used to treat wrinkles by relaxing certain muscles of the face.
