Dont sweat it!


What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is the condition characterized by abnormally increased in sweating. Hyperhidrosis can either be generalized or localized to specific parts of the body. Hands, feet, armpits, and the groin area are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the rela• tively high concentration of sweat glands; however, any part of the body may be affected.

Treating Hyperhidrosis using Botu inum Toxins
Botulinum Toxin (Botox ) works by blocking the nerves in the armpit that control sweat glands. Botulinum toxin injections are performed in the area to be treated. The needle that is used is a very small needle which is the same size as an acupuncture needle. A series of injections will be subsequently administered to the desired treatment site.

After the injections, the skin may appear slightly bruised, and the skin will feel numb from the anaesthesia.In approximately 3 to 5 days after the injections, a decrease of sweating in the treated areas will be noted. The process has to be repeated every 3 to 6 months for up to a year.
