Hyperhidrosis is the excessive production of sweat from eccrine sweat glands compared to normal sweat needed to regulate the body’s temperature. This is not a result of heat exercise nor emotional state.
Primary hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating can often cause emotional stress lack of confidence embarrassment depression and avoidance. These circumstances can lead to problems both at the workplace as well as in our personal lives.
Injections of toxin causes a temporary inactivity in the action of these sweat glands as a result there is no or limited amount of sweat around the injected area. Areas injected include the armpits feet and hands as well as the genitals or other areas of focal hyperhidrosis.
Treating the armpits is relatively pain free with the use of local numbing creams and needs to be repeated from 4 to 9 months as required.
