Excessive sweating, known medically as hyperhidrosis, may occur on the palms, underarms, feet, and face. Usually caused by overactive nerves or sweat glands, this is not typical heavy sweating due to stress, exercise, or heat. It can have a negative impact on self-esteem and cause embarrassment in business and social situations.
In mild cases, topical prescription-strength antiperspirants are effective. In more severe cases, oral medications or neurotoxin injections can be used to decrease the activity of the sweat glands.
Tiny amounts of neurotoxin such as Botox or Dysport are injected into the underarms, groin, scalp, hands or feet. With long-lasting results, this safe and effective treatment can have a dramatic effect on your quality of life. Results are noticeable within 2-4 days after treatment, with full effect within 2 weeks. Each treatment can last for 4-12 months.
