Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Anti- perspirants

The first line treatment is the use of strong anti- perspirants which contain 10% to 20% aluminum chloride hexahydrate.  These work by plugging the sweat ducts.  However these can be irritable to the skin and stain clothing.

Under-arm Botox

Under arm fillers are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to be used in the treatment of excessive underarm sweating.  Small doses of this purified substance is injected into the axilla which temporarily block the nerves that stimulate sweating.

The Procedure

The Botox treatment is injected into different points to ensure a smooth coverage. No anaesthesia is required as this simple and safe procedure only last a few minutes. Most daily activities can be resumed instantly.

No anaesthesia is required and the procedure itself only lasts a few minutes. Most daily activities can be resumed immediately.
