Overactive sweat glands especially underarms, hands, feet or even on the forehead, nose and upper lips can be a cause of much embarrassment and affect self-confidence. Sweating which is troublesome, can be controlled without the use of topical anti-perspirants. Injection of Botulinum Toxin into the underarms cans reduce sweating. Botulinum toxin blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to sweat glands which can be used to control sweating. Botulinum toxin is therefore effective in the treatment of sweating or Hyperhidrosis of the underarms (axilla), face, hands and feet. Because the receptors that are blocked by Botulinum toxin are continually begin replaced, the effect of Botulinum toxin is never permanent but typically lasts 6-7 months in sweat glands.
Treatment takes 20-30 minutes. There are rarely side effects of the treatment, tiny bruises may occur in the areas of delicate skin. The Botunluim Toxin starts to take effect within 5-7 days. Most patients notice a reduction of sweating at 2 weeks, with the improvement lasting 6-7 months.
