Many people suffer from Hyperhidrosis, which is an excessive amount of perspiration that leads to several changes of clothes per day to cope with the problem.
It affects both men and women and can have an extremely adverse influence on the quality of life. Hyperhidrosis can make everyday activities difficult and greatly curtail a social life due to the embarrassment of constant underarm wetness.
Clothes can also be ruined very quickly, which becomes an added expense in itself.
Fortunately there is a quick and easy treatment in the form of several small injections in the armpits.
The medical treatment using Botulinum Toxin type A injections (Botox/Vistabel, or Dysport/Azzalure), the same product used in anti-wrinkle treatments on the face, stops the sweat glands from producing excessive levels of sweat.
The beneficial effect of this treatment reduces and almost eliminates sweating for around six months.
