Sweating is one of the most important and natural ways in which the body cools down and controls your temperature, we all do it. If, however, you sweat more than you need to, you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. Excessive sweating is a surprisingly common problem yet it is undertreated because of lack of awareness and its embarrassing nature.
Axillary hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that occurs in the underarm region. Axillary hyperhidrosis can be treated using Botulin injections which works by effectively blocking the nerves leading to the sweat gland, managing and relieving the issue for a period of time. These injections usually take a couple of days to start working, but once they do the sweating is dramatically reduced.
Usually just one session is required. All patients will return for a follow-up appointment 2 weeks after their treatment. Sometimes a top treatment is required but you will not be charged for this. Results usually last between 6-8 months, another treatment will be required after this period.
