Hyperhidrosis is characterised by abnormally increased sweating in the axilla (underarms), in excess of what is needed to regulate body temperature. It is associated with a significant quality of life burden from a psychological, emotional and social perspective.
Thankfully, Botulinum Toxin Type A has been proven to treat excessive underarm sweating. Once injected, Botulinum Toxin Type A prevents the stimulation of the sweat glands that leads to excessive sweating.
The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and the effects last on average 6 to 9 months.
Patients have reported an improved quality of life following their treatments.
