Hyperhidrosis, more commonly known as excessive sweating, can significantly affect a person’s quality of life and can occur because the sweat glands are overactive. Common areas include armpits, hands and feet.
Botulinum Toxin is often associated with cosmetic wrinkle reduction, but can be an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. Botulinum Toxin is a preparation of protein that, when small doses are injected into the skin, blocks the nerves supplying the sweat glands, preventing them from producing sweat.
Botulinum Toxin is not a permanent cure and some people may get greater benefits than others, but it will help to stop or greatly reduce the sweating under the arms. This will usually happen within 2 weeks of treatment and the effects may last between 6 – 12 months.
