Hyperhydrosis or excessive sweating affects 3% of the population and is caused by over activity of the sympathetic nervous system.
Under-arm injections are an effective and safe treatment to reduce the symptoms of underarm Hyperhydrosis and reduce sweating by 80%.
A small amount of a natural toxin will be injected into approximately 15-20 sites in the underarm area, this temporarily paralyses the nerves that trigger sweat production.
The treatment typically lasts up to 6 months, however 30% of patients still feel the effect after 8 months.
As with any injection, patients may experience a slight sting, a topical anaesthetic can be applied to prevent any pain.
The reduction of sweating starts within a few days of treatment with full results evident after 10 days.
