Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that makes you sweat more than you need to. This is a medical condition which affects 2 to 3 % of the population. Patients describe feeling embarrassed and self-conscious. In primary hyperhidrosis, the cause is unknown and can affect specific areas, such as armpits, hands, feet and/or face. Other factors such as diabetes, menopause, nerve damage and some medications can also cause excessive sweating, called secondary hyperhidrosis. The doctor will need to do a full exam to give a diagnosis.
BOTOX® treatment of hyperhidrosis is simple and amazing. A small amount of BOTOX® is injected intradermally to the affected area using a very fine needle. You should notice a significant reduction of sweating in the treated areas within a week of treatment. Results could last up to six months.
Clients that are treated for hyperhidrosis often say:
- “This is so awesome I can wear any fabric or colour I want now”
- “Can’t believe how amazing this is. I have my life back”
- “No need to bring extra clothing to work anymore”
