HYPERHIDROSIS (EXCESSIVE SWEATING)

Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a medical condition that involves hyperactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body's temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis (severe sweating of the underarms), sweating significantly exceeds the body's normal requirements. Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis often goes undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and untreated due to lack of awareness.

Axillary hyperhidrosis can be personally distressing and interfere socially and professionally. Fortunately, the condition is treatable! Prescription strength antiperspirants, oral medications, and Botulinum Toxin® may be used for short-term treatment.

Botulinum Toxin® TREATMENT

Botulinum Toxin® treatment has been approved by the FDA for excessive sweating. Botulinum Toxin® treatment helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. The effects of Botulinum Toxin® treatment for this problem last an average of six to seven months.
