The solution to embarrassing sweat patches…
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Perspiration is a perfectly normal bodily function, and sweat plays an important role in moderating the body’s temperature. However, hyperhidrosis sufferers sweat more than necessary, and this can be both uncomfortable and – if sweat patches become visible – embarrassing. Hyperhidrosis is most commonly associated with the axilla (armpit), but it does affect other parts of the body, including the hands, face and feet.

How Does this Treatment Help…
This treatment is given by injection into the skin. It is recommended for the treatment of axilla hyperhidrosis. It is injected into the armpit, which prevents the sweat glands from producing sweat. It is a safe, well established treatment and has been used for many years.*
During the Treatment…
Using a small needle, your practitioner will administer a series of injections into each armpit. Treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes.
How quickly does it work and how long will the effects last? You will notice an improvement within 7 days. Effects usually last approximately 6 months.
Your practitioner will work with you to decide when further treatment is needed.*
