Hyperhidrosis

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Excessive sweating is a medical condition called hyperhidrosis.

It may be appropriate to first consult your GP as this may be a symptom of certain medical conditions or a side effect of some medications.  If there is no underlying cause of excessive sweating then the condition is called primary hyperhidrosis and this can be treated very successfully with Botulinum Toxin.

Botox has been licensed to treat underarm sweating since 2004, and is safe and effective. Treatment often lasts around 7 months.

Botulinum toxin temporarily¬† “turns off” the body’s sweat glands in the area injected, most commonly the armpits.
