Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis

Excessive sweating is common and can affect the whole body or just certain areas.

Treatment

Severe underarm sweating can be treated with small injections under the skin, when topical medicines do not work well enough. The injections applied into the affected areas help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves which stimulate the sweat glands. Once the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating settles. The procedure is straightforward and safe with minimal or no downtime.

Generally, it will take 1-2 weeks until you start feeling the results after the treatment. Results will typically last between 6 to 7 months. It is recommended that the treatment is repeated every six months for results to be maintained. If treatment is discontinued, your sweating will gradually return to its initial state -before treatment.
