Heavy sweating (also known as Hyperhidrosis) is a very real and embarrassing problem. BOTOX® can effectively help diminish excessive sweating. Several studies shown up to 80% reduction in sweat production after Botulinum toxin was injected in problem areas. The decreased sweating can last of up to 7-10 months, depending on an individual and the area treated.
Health Canada approved BOTOX® for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis of the underarms in patients 18 years of age or older.
Injections are done with very fine needles directly in the problem areas. Local skin numbing cream could be applied prior to injections to decrease patient’s discomfort.
This is simple and fast procedure.
