Hyperhidrosis: a Lifestyle Change !

Are you constantly worried about under-arm sweat? Do you spend your mornings figuring out how to mix and match layers of clothing to best hide sweat rings? Are you tired of avoiding social situations and ruining your clothing?

If your underarm sweat bothers you, you are not alone. It’s more common than you think. In fact, one in five adults is bothered by his or her underarm sweat.

While it is normal to sweat in hot or stressful environments, some people sweat excessively even when not in these environments.  This is called Axillary Hyperhidrosis and is caused by over- active sweat glands. Wet rings, stains and ruined clothing are a common occurrence for those with excessive sweating, and causes them to modify their lifestyle from changing shirts throughout the day to avoiding social situations all together. This can have devastating consequences on emotional well-being and self-image.

These days there is an excellent treatment to prevent excessive sweating. Botox can be painlessly injected into the skin in very small carefully controlled doses to block the action of the nerves which activate the sweat glands. This treatment usually works within a few days and the effect usually lasts 6-9 months, although some patients may continue to benefit for 12 months or more. Up to 95% of sweating can be eliminated by this simple procedure.
