Hyperhydrosis is a condition characterised by abnormally increased sweating, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. Although the primary cause is unknown, it has been linked to overactivity of the nervous system, triggered by anxiety/excitement. Due to the number of sweat glands, the armpits are the most commonly affected area, which can lead to emotional distress and social embarrassment.
This condition is easily treated with Botox injections which block the neural control of the sweat glands. Results can last between 3-6mths. The duration of the beneficial effect has been found to increase with repetition of injections. This procedure is very low risk with high patient satisfaction and little down time.
