The same products are now also used to treat excessive perspiration by injecting into the sweat glands in the armpits. The procedure is quick, safe and has dramatic results, with many patients reporting almost complete disappearance of sweating.
This treatment really can change lives.
What is excessive sweating?
Normal sweating helps to keep the body temperature steady in hot weather, during a high temperature (fever), or when exercising. Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) means that you sweat much more than normal. Even when you are not hot, anxious, or exercising, you make a lot of sweat.
What are the treatment options?
If you think you may sufer from excessive sweating, there are certain lifestyle changes that can help:
- Using antiperspirant deodorants
- Avoiding known triggers such as spicy food or alcohol
- Maintaining a cool environment
- Wearing loose clothing
- Trying to stay relaxed
If lifestyle changes are not effective enough there may be other treatments you can try.
Botulinum toxin injections
This is an option that usually works well for armpit sweating. Treatment consists of many small injections just under the skin in the affected areas. The botulinum toxin stops the nerves in the skin that control the sweat glands from working. This treatment can last up to 6 – 9 months.
