Axillary Hyperhidrosis

What is Axillary Hyperhidrosis?

Axillary Hyperhidrosis effectively controls excessive underarm sweating for up to 9 months. Neither test patch nor anaesthetic is required.

How long does the treatment take?
45-60 minutes.

How long will the treatment last?
Up to 9 months.

Axillary Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating from the armpits. Sweating is normal in humans, the evaporation of the water from the skin takes the heat away from the body and so sweating is essential for temperature control.

Although some people have hyperhidrosis as a consequence of another illness, in many others it is merely due to overactive sweat glands or overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system.

However, excessive sweating from the armpits can be more than just annoying – it can alter the way some people live their lives. People suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis find that they have to be very careful about what clothes they buy or wear and find that they are very self conscious in the social setting, particularly if hot or nervous. At work people suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis are always conscious of what they are wearing, and if they can remove their outer garments - or whether this might reveal embarrassing sweat marks on their clothes. Relief of the condition can lead to vastly improved quality of life.

Botulinum Toxin in small quantities is safe. It is used by many medical practitioners to reduce wrinkling of the skin. To reduce sweating a very small amount of Botulinum Toxin is injected using a tiny micro-needle into the area, which paralyse the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.

The treatment is relatively painless and will take about half an hour to forty-five minutes to complete. There are no side, or after affects and normal activities can be resumed immediately. The treatment will last for up to nine months.
