Description

Sweating is a natural process of maintaining the ideal body temperature. However, excessive underarm sweating can be very annoying, embarrassing and uncomfortable. Hyperhidrosis is a clinical condition characterised by excessive and unpredictable sweating even when at rest and the external temperature is cool. When antiperspirants and medications do not provide relief, the overactive sweat glands can be treated with botulinum toxin injections.


Procedure

Multiple injections of diluted botulinum toxin are performed to the area to block nerves that stimulate sweat glands.
