What is it?
Excessive sweating, also known as “Hyperhidrosis” can be a seriously embarrassing condition and profoundly affect self-consciousness. When severe sweating gets in the way of daily activities and deodorants do not work, you may be a candidate for Botulinum Toxin (Botox) treatment under the arms where there are overactive sweat glands.
How does it work?
The Botox injections paralyze the tiny muscles just under the skin, which squeeze the sweat out from the sweat glands, up the sweat duct and out through the pores to the surface of the skin.
Andrea will give you a consultation to discuss the treatment options and make sure this is the right treatment for you. After this, the area to be treated will be numbed with cream. The treatment itself takes around twenty minutes and involves having small injections just under the skin under the arms.
The treatment is very effective; usually resulting in a 90% reduction in underarm sweating that and can last for up to six months from just one treatment session.
